PostSubject: Pics of the Cage I Made....   Tue Jun 30, 2009 3:37 am

Made this a few weekends ago and finally got a chance to clean it up, paint it and make panels for it like I did with the RC HardBodyz Cage. Total cost of material was like 7 bucks from TSC, got a couple lengths of 3/16 dia. cold roll steel and a small length of 1/2" wide flat stock for the mounts. I designed and made scale drawings to go off of then just started cutting and bending and welding. I weigh 155lbs and can (and have) stand on this cage and it is solid but it still weighs the same as my old cage... its also a little shorter for better approach and departure. I've also added a few other goodies to my tmaxx since the last time some of you saw my truck... Losi Claw MT tires, Carbon Black Traxxas Tubes for the front which DO WORK with 3.2" wheels, RPM True Track Rear, RPM Upper/Lower Front A-Arms and knuckles and Shock Mounts and another set of RAM lights.

anyways... heres some pics.....



a few hours later


finally got some paint!


Finished product


After making light brackets


heres what it used to look like...
