ROLL CAGE DESIGN COMPETITION !!!Test not aptitude but skillz

Post by 5AVAG3 » Sat Sep 20, 2008 5:20 am

It would be great if someone could organize one for the members. What do you guys think? Other forums have it. There are online shops always mentioned on here that can donate a decent price.

OK judging by the responses, I'm guessing no one wants to take responsibilities.
How about ....since we have a lot of mechanically and artistic people in here, a competition on who can make the best ROLL CAGE for a savage....The best one wins a price from a hobby shop who in turn can have the patent copyright of the design, so everyone wins..

any suggestion?

I like the idea of a competition but an artistic one would be no good for me at all :lol:  :lol:

yay a new project for me

been looking for a new project and just had it handed to me on a silver platter

roll cage eh?

thats an easy one

lemme guess you want engine protection combined with flexibility and some support to the body without making hard to get to radio box

maybe easy to remove from truck when you need to do some wrenching

easy gimme a week

I can't wait for Mr snuggles one after the tool box savage design..Eggbert should be good at this after seeing his anti HTL stock tank design...I know Shinobid, Pluh, Extreme savage and a few others are out lookin for some Delrin or nylon material...so this is gonna be AWESOME to see the ideas.

We're still looking for sponsors for the price of the BEST CAGE DESIGNER....Any Hobby shop please holler???

I think Integra and Donovans cages are the fine examples of savage cages, and should be the standards to be followed but  peoples ideas should not be limited and are encouraged to think outside the box. I think the comp is for the freshest Ideas, cost, simplicity, strength, weight, access and aesthetics are what we can score on. Everyone should be able to vote.
Give ourselves One month to create a finished project with photos and video of it being bashed by exactly 7.00pm October 26 2008 is when voting starts.
Feel free to share your ongoing progress and don't forget to document it..
GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY, and may your cage bring you unlimited FORTUNES... :idea:
I don't know how we would make the scoring system though?

Well, putting the deadline of October 26th may be a tad soon for me jsut because I have some other issues going on with my rig...My reverse module is toast, my motor mount is broke, my truck is in pieces right now...I think on Monday, I'm going to have everything I need to get the truck put back together, but I don't know if I'll be able to have my cage design done and installed and bashed before Oct. 26. I can try, but whatever. I guess nothing has really been set in stone here yet anyway right?

I was going to model mine after Integra's, but then xtremesavage posted a couple pics of Donovans cage here: http://savage-central.com/modules.php?n ... ic&t=78455

And i think I like that design better...It appears like it basically became the body...Me likey!!

Anyway, if this becomes a competition of sorts, I'm in...I'm just not in a position to start building the cage just yet..

Humm, considering I work in Autodesk Inventor all day long, I may just have to come up with something.
