Default Integy roll cage for scorpion

Hey scorpion enthusiasts. Have any of you used the Integy roll cage for the scorpion? Those who have what'd you think about it?

if your goal is to get it to look more like a 1:1 i would say pick up an scx frame kit.
Axial AX30525 Frame Set SCX10 | eBay

or if you really want a full cage type look get a wraith chassis
Axial Wraith Roll Cage Chassis Rock Crawler Tuber AX90020 Manual | eBay

integy has alot of items with questionable QA standards and that roll cage is more of a gimmicky thing than anything.
You mentioned in the newbie section you have done things with 1:1 crawlers. If you have basic welding equipment available to you building a cage is a very viable option.

If you look up "harley designs" on youtube he does a very good job of explaining the process and even has free blueprints on his website. You can find that info here

hope that helps

I refuse to even use Integy spacers. Integy is complete crap. Please do not waste your money, buy from a vendor here. It will cost more, but it will also last more than one run.

To be fair there are a select few parts that you can ONLY get from integy.
I'm remembering a gearbox for a Team Associated I used to own, also there is a part I broke on my Wraith that NOBODY but integy made a aftermarket option, So they got my money in those two cases. I'm sure there are more instances ..

My experience has been different. If Integy makes a part, I don't buy it. I'll roll stock parts over their product. This comes from giving them a shot numerous times in the past. I've honestly had one good experience and it was actually with their customer service. They replaced a part quickly, which quickly broke again.
