Question
Simple Custom Roll Cage?

What's the best way to build a roll cage without having to weld? I want to solder it together, so how do I do it and what do I need?

with roll cages you really have to weld them. depending on what vehicle you have it is not that hard to build a custom cage. ive built 6 cages so far for a number of different vehicles. i wish i had pics though but not all of the cages were mine only a couple of them. ive built one for my traxxas jato, t-maxx, slash, and i also built a custom rc sand rail too. im in the process of building a foff rig but thats the hard part cause i need a traxxas e-maxx tranny off ebay first.

If it's just for looks, you can braze/solder brass together. If you want it to be strong enough to protect it you'll need steel and welding.

i know you said not to weld, but i went to autozone found a cheap set of push rods, took a torch and bent them and just tached together for my jato, worked pretty good!

i did make a roll cage for my jato. that thing was heavy as hell but i could never damage it besides paint. but the weight was around 3lbs or something like that. plus im building a custom foff rig with a emaxx tranny and wraith axles. so i can run a mamba monster in it due to the weight. final weight might be around 8 lbs at the lightest is my guess.
