Anyone know where to get the light weight bulkheads which are mentioned in this thread and elsewhere?

Referred to when selling a car..:
Shumacher Mi3 Sellout

I would like to reduce my schummi weight

NOTE: I found them myself, they were not called bulkheads but diff mounts

Shawn Palmer- Speedworld was rocking this weekend. We need those tire's bro.... Hopefully we can get them for the next time we race at Speedworld which will be April 5th. I'll give you a call in the morning cause I need to order some diff lube and no one locally carries it so I must mail order diff lube. What is this world coming to? Maybe that can get sent to me by postal services or send extras to Aaron Young Keep up the good work.

Just wanted to say good job to Allen Hewett winning the 10.5 class at the first BCR night race in Orange last night. There was some pretty stiff competition out there. The car looked really good. I was busy messing around trying different things on the car (none of which worked well at all) and didn't get a clean run all night and ended up in the B. But I did have more than one person ask me during practice if I was running mod and after the mains, just about every guy in the race asked me what I was running for motor. (Speed Passion 10.5 and GT speedo. ) We'll see how well I can do running 10.5 if I quit trying weird setup stuff and just go back to what I know works out there.

adam, ran the setup you sent me, with a few modifications...the car was on rails. had lots of steering and great corner speed. racer-x had problems with his car, but we will have them sorted out next time we run.

i had an old set of r/p-36's. they worked great in the heat..it was wierd going down the straight at speedworld, its soooooooo long...i think just driving down the straight at full speed took about 3-4 seconds from the time you hit the straight till you went around the sweeper at the end of it...great track tho, had lots of fun

Thanks, I have ordered already... But the picture from my link above displayed some purple alloy ones. Are they aftermarket parts?
Doesn't matter though, I'm just curious..

Actually the purple ones were prototypes, the ones you receive should be a silver alloy

Ran 17.5 this weekend at our indoor asphalt track. Just can't find the right gearing setup. Ran a 96/48 and it was good on the straight and lacked in the infield.. Tried different settings in the speedo with timing. Ended up changing to a brushed motor for the main and ran faster lap times. I guess I need some more track time playing with this brushless stuff.

We have a trophy race this weekend. I might run the 13.5 class.

Adam, I mailed that speedo back on Thursday. Let me know what you think went wrong with it.
