- Unassembled Cage (comes in silver, blue and red) with Stainless Screws
- RC Solutions Stickers
The instructions get you rolling pretty quickly and should cause no real trouble for the inexperienced. The two longer braces stretch the entire length of the chassis and protect the engine head from damage. Two other braces complete the look going across the center of the chassis. The kit also includes aluminum chassis plates that replace the stock plastic ones. The kit makes it look like you just changed the entire chassis, a nice trick for your friends.
When I first received the skid from Scott at RC Solutions, I was very impressed with it. I really liked the design, both for functionality as well as looks. Installation was a breeze and only took a few minutes.
Driver, whatever type you need for the type screws in your truck. Mine uses stainless steel hex head screws.
When you purchase your Nitro Rustler roll cage you will need these things handy. Some Hex Drivers or Allen Wrenches, Loctite, and a little patience to read through all of the directions supplied with your purchase to assemble your roll cage. The supplied directions are in full color, great detail and will seem like installing the cage a breeze. If you choose not to use Loctite the screws will rattle loose and fall out. I experienced this myself.
What you will need for installation, this is based on the assumption these will be added to a stock T-Maxx, if other after market hop ups, or fasteners have been used this list will vary
After receiving the Bulkheads, I gave them the once over, they looked very nice, and to be well made. They appeared to be machined to where weight was removed from them without sacrificing structural integrity. The hinge pins were included, and after checking them out, I noticed right away that that there were no grooves in the pins for e-clips. The pins are held in by two allen set screws for each pin, through the bulkhead. After checking everything out I was ready to start wrenching.
