Hey everyone, I am curious if any of you have tried the Worker brand flywheel cage motor "kit" that I've seen on ebay.

I got some worker plastic serrated concave wheels and really like them over stock wheels and then checked to see if they would fit an artifact red cage and saw that worker had a flywheel cagge "kit" with canted or non canted metal flywheel cage, metal or plastic flywheels (ones I want, so I can put my current worker wheels from my stryfe into my daughters rapid red), some random 130 motors (probably not use them but curious to get some info on them), wiring I probably won't use as I have tons of quality wiring in the garage, high amp micoswitch that apparently bolts into the shell w/o glue, and some barrel material.

I'm really only interested in this "kit" for the metal non canted cage, plastic flywheels, micro switch and the metal & plastic barrel material. Anyone know how the worker cages compare to artifact cages?

Since it comes with motors, do any of you have any info on them? Are they meant to be stock replacement motors for regular aa or imr/ trustfires? Or are they meant to be run on lipo? I'm pretty sure I'm not using these in either stryfe build, but am curious since it comes with the "kit".

The metal flywheel cage (looks) like good quality, and looks like it would mate up to barrels better than artifact cages, but I have no idea how the quality actually is compared to artifact.

Metal cage is same geometry as artifact, and is supposed to be on par quality wise as well, but I have never handled one. Metal wheels are garbage. They are too slippery and will give poor velocity.

The worker plastic wheels are excellent, shooting over 150FPS with the right cage and motors.

I do like the wheels. I have them in my stock cage in my stryfe and plan to put some in my daughters rapid red. I am def going for the plastic wheels if I get this cage and def not the metal wheels.

The cage looks to be of comparible quality to artifact plus the extension part where the barrel attaches to it. Which seems pretty cool, along with the barrel pieces it comes with.

I am a little curious about the motors. Ard they meant be be run on stock aa's or a 2s or 3s pack?

Well it seems noone here has tried to Worker cage/wheels/motors/barrel/switch/wiring kit, so I think I will order one, with the nom canted cage and good ol pastic worker flywheels in a week or so to see how everything is and put into my imr stryfe. I already have good ol plastic worker wheels in it now with atock cage and love em, so I want another set to put in my daughters rapid red.

I am really curious the quality of the cage, and will probably use the whole "kit" aside from the motors and maybe wiring if it looks realy shoddy.

Though I am super curious on the motors it comes with, but will not be using them atleast untill I hear some specs on them.

I will def let you all know what I think once I order it in about a week and receive it hopefully within a month after placing the order.
