Why would you need one?
You'd be better off spending your money else where.



Like on a G-maxx chassis.

I have ripped in half 4 bodys, and broke 2 shock towers from landing up side down. I beat the crap out of my car.

Well, try to practice with throttle control when your in the air, and get better before you start thinking about upgrades. Spend as much time driving your truck as you can.

Default RE: roll cage

Anything with the word "steel" anywhere in the description will make your truck weigh a TON!!!! And aluminum tubes are nowhere near strong enough. This is a good one if you must get a roll cage.

It also comes in blue and silver. Look at some of their photos on their site of how strong they are.

I have that cage on my t-maxx. It is hard to take off. I want 1 that is easy to take off.

Default RE: roll cage

The roll cage is hard to take off because it is mounted is so many places on the chassis. If you want a cage that is easy to take off, then you sacrifice strength. OR you could take off the bottom part and just have it mount to the bulkheads. This should save a lot of screws that need to be unscrewed if you want to take it off.

Then solder up your own out of brass tubing.
Here's some good instructions:
