    This is my rollcage i got from rc solution. I will not be able to test it till the winter ends but it is ready to go.

    It even said on the directions that you have to cut the body to fit around the cage i hate to cut up the body too much. On the other hand it does give it a roll bar look for the pick up bodies.

    I had to cut a hole in the front grill to make a pathway for some air flow because the bar obstructs the front window.

    seems a little overkill but I bet it will hold up to most anything you could do to it.

    Ya but at least if i do a nose to the sky move again before the brain connects to the finger and tells it to bring the front end down and doesn't. I think i maybe have it covered this time not to pop another fuel tank which i have wreck so many times. I think i am on my forth one.

    nice looking let us know how it holds up ...;as for you puncturing holes in your tank.. is it the rear of the tank by the shocks? turn the top shock bolt around so the hex head faces the tank it don't stop it but it does prevent from happening nearly as much...you can also put a small piece of fuel line over the hex head to help as a bumper so when the tower flexs n pushes the bolt into the tank it wont puncture through ...

    Looks good. Rc solutions cages are top of the line. Had one on the revo. Nearly indestuctable (the cage) Not cheap though.

    Well with the new rollcage on and with more looking and looking because of the winter no outside fun. I discovered that the battery cover was just a real pain to get on without moving or major damage to something. so i cut it in half to get in there better.

    Which led to me cutting the filter tube shorter. Well that just made a new problem for the airflow.

    I went ahead and came up with something that will bring air to the cooling head off of the side of the body. I decided to cut the windows on three lines and bend it in. It will act as an airduct to draw the air in from the side and directly at the motor head to keep it cool.

    Well had the truck out yesterday. I got it to flip a couple of times and the cage did its job. I only had it on a grass field but looks like really good product. It did not seem like it was too heavy doing wheelies or taking corners. Over all works pretty good for the money.

    Took it out and went over some good size hills made a couple of big back flips and landed on the cage in different ways. Wow the best investment i ever made for my savage wow.

    Does it fit under the shell/body without having to modify it?

    Thanks
