ok for a roll cage to fit under the body is pointless, do you know why???, because it will do either of 2 things, flex and hit some thing that if it wasnt under the body it wouldnt or i might catch some thing like say idk rocks can get trapped or it might bend and get at the spur gear being so close to the car its self, oh and a 3rd thing roll cages make any rc top heavy so just remember that when you go looking for one. i know im never buying one for my savage trust me, oh and if you think im lieing about all the above, i work in a hobbie shop with all nitro stuff so lol dont try saying im lieing hahahahaha but ya im not trying to be an *** or anything just warning you of the draw backs of a roll cage

edit: and dont for get added weight too so then more weight slower car, and the firestomes are kinda slow as it is lol but still fun idk how that works hahahahaha

my firestorm is not slow by any means, great on and off road, just looking for a protection for the chassis, when i dont drive the body.

i can make just about anything you want but to be honest it would be a better fit if i had the or a truck to work to and as im in the UK it would cost you a small fortune to ship
