Yes, exactly, I had to buy it on the old chassis.

The small things, I am already buying.

Found the shocks on rcmodel.

I have bought the bearings and screw at precision rc in the past but they are not trustable any more.

Does someone knows where I can get it.

Also I was told that the screw used on the HB Cyclone is quite good because have a metal cover and does not get hot with the friction getting looser, have someone tried that?

I am going to give a look at it, but if you guys could post where to get the thrust bearing because where I bought in the past there is no more stock anymore, tried to find the top at amain but there is no stock of it.

I always got the JAAD bearings from Precision RC. They are hard to find. That is why I'm using the Top Racing one now which I ordered from Top Racing USA. Not sure if they ship outside the US.

Very good for my point of view and very cost effective I have to say.

It's good and costs nothing no doubt about that, but those bulkheads are weak enough without taking material off them

Which is why I prefer our bulkheads, superior in strength and allow the car to flex more evenly

If your worried about strength issues or bending on side impact, have you considered using the same setup as the 416 motor mount, with a L-bracket of the front and a screw in the centerline of the chassiss. Just a thought.
