Looks good, did you make it yourself?
What kind of rod is it made out of? Aluminum I am guessing?
Is there a body of sorts, that goes over the cage?

Back in the day I made a cage for a 1/10 sprint car out of welding rod, looked BA! but was defiantly way too heavy..... LOL

I didn't make it. I got it from vgracing.com Link Here.
It's pretty damn stout and is made of steel.
The stock torment body fits over it perfectly.

1.5 - 2lbs. It doesn't really slow it down by much. Still fast enough to pop wheelies with my brushless setup.

Yeah I agree, I doubt it slows it down much at all, with the brushless systems of today.
It will affect handling somewhat though. But if it's just a basher, then you may not be too worried about that.
Have you noticed any more or less traction roll overs? Since the center of gravity is a bit higher now, on top of the already high center of gravity the Torment has inherently.

Thanks. It adds a bit more weight to it and protects the body when I crash it. (i'm not a great driver yet.) it also looks cool...
