    A factory rock racer cage similar to the UDR cage?

    So some of you may have come across my build using a vg racing roll cage.

    https://forums.traxxas.com/showthrea...cer-No-problem

    It’s fun and all but the fact that it is made of I think steel means it’s very top heavy. I have to be so careful turning and it’s weight really shows in the air.

    I recently built a udr from parts and I love the idea of the plastic cage that keeps dirt and stuff out with Lexan panels and the plastic driver mockup cover. Will Traxxas consider making a plastic rock racer cage similar to the axial yeti or lasernut but mounts to existing shock towers or mounts like the vg cage? The stampede 4x4 bumpers are perfect as is....basically the cage will do something like what people like squeegie has done, but a more factory option to compete with the rock racer type 1/10 cars out there

    Don't know if you saw, but I custom cut Pro-Line UDR Hyrax tires and mounted them on 17mm Trinity SC wheels and completed my rock racer/bouncer look on my Slash 4x4 LCG:

    I did and itching to do it. I got a second vg racing cage and mounted on my lcg chassis build and it is a lot more stable now, so some bigger tires are in order. Thanks for trying it and giving us ideas squeegie.

    If you want lager tires and not have to modify the tires, the Nomad DB8 tires fit standard short course wheels. They are softer than the Hyrax. I have already painted and mounted them as well. I like the feel of them, but I like to look of the Hyrax.

    That rock racer look seriously inspires me to do that with mine.. I have the integy cage. I could get a sheet of aluminum and cut to fit the holes.

    I see there's rivets. Did you drill right into the cage and rivet the aluminum to it?

    Aftermarket aluminum panels that screw onto the cage’s existing holes.

    Good luck!
