Agreed with the stock idea. I have an HBZ and it bent on the smallest roll over. I caught the wing mount in the grass and it pushed it forward an inch and down half. But I think that it may have helped my rear dom 1 or 2 times. I got packed in the rear pretty good a couple times on the oval at bajafest hard 1 of the times and pipe was good. So I don't know depends on what your doing I guess. BASHER stay stock RACER go for it! my 2 cents.

+1 for the stock roll cage. If and when you bend the metal one you will be disapointed, every time you bend it back into position the metal just gets weaker and weaker untill it eventually just brakes. The plastic roll cage has tons of flex no bling factor but it does have the wallet factor on its side.
just my opinion

You got packed in the rear pretty good, huh? A couple times? Hey, not my thing, but whatever floats your boat!

i agree with every one say if you a basher stay with stock. the metal cages make them to top heavy most of the time and the expense is too high for bashing for most people
