    Lightbulb Protecting Motor Servos ESC?

    So I've done a bit of reading lately and have decided that in the next few weeks I'll be buying a Brushless E-Revo.


    I was just wondering if anyone bothers using roll cages in their cars to protect the internal components?

    I was looking at something like this:[url=http://www.rcplanet.com/RC_Solutions_Roll_Cage_E_Revo_p/rcs157.htm]RC+157 RC Solutions Roll Cage E-Revo[/url]

    or this: [url=http://www.rollcagecity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=36&pos=8]VGRacing / Roll Cage City Photo Gallery - Traxxas® Mini E-Revo Roll Cage/RED1[/url]


    So far the pros and cons I've got are;

    Pros:
    - less likely to break/damage the motor, esc and servos when/if you flip your car.

    Cons:
    - added weight.
    - getting plastic bodies fit over roll cages

    I don't think they're too heavy though..


    I was also looking at getting one of the outerwears rc car covers: [url=http://www.outerwearsracing.com/proddetail.asp?prod=202644]TRAXXAS E-REVO & (BRUSHLESS EDITION) SHROUD W/VELCRO CLOSURE 20-2644 - Outerwears, Inc. - Original manufacturer of Pre-Filters & Shockwears[/url]

    Does anyone use these? Again there are a few things that I'm curious about:

    - Heat on the motor?
    - Weight? (not so much, I couldn't imagine it making a big difference..)
