    I don't know about a roll cage but i do know of a cheap aluminum chassis. A company called nightmare makes it. I belive it comes in red, purple, blue and gold. I checked on the price and it's $45.00. Not bad. Check out the website---->www.nightmarechassis.com. or call toll free at 1-866-331-7744.

    P.S-it's for the electric rustler, i don't work for the company, and the chassis is super nice

    I guess he also asked for a chassis not an a**hole like you. Be nice when you respond. I fugred it would still help him out. Why build a roll bar and then something goes wrong with the chassis. The stronger the truck the better. I guess since YOU don't have a rustler you wouldn't know. I have a 4-tec, nitro and electric rustler, a stampede, and two street force GP's. Go play with your Savage child. Don't get smart with those who will step on you.

    also i read your other reply and the savage 25 does not only go 30 it goes 40 out of the box if you go to http://home.att.net/~dgelowitz/savage_faq/#P-01c on number nine torwards the bottom it clearly say that the top speed for a savage 25 and savage SS is 40+mph
