Can any trainspotters out there figure out what damper cylinders they used at the worlds? I thought they were the TRF buggy ones but the buggy HL dampers won't take the blue lower cap - their lower shock cap is an insert style.

Come on Craig... they are buggy tops with custom (i.e. proto) cyclinders... had a chat with a few guys there after I saw the pics...

and good to see you spotted the 0.5mm shims under the motor bulkheads too... how about the top deck minus the front motor mount screws and holes?

I think its .5 under all the bulkheads not just the motormount, hence the lower (3mm) inner camberlinks.

Yep noticed that too. New shocks, interesting. As the guy above said you can see the 0.5mm spacers under the other bulkheads too

What does the raising of the bulkheads do for the handling of the car?

I don't see spacer under the other bulkheads, but I wonder if its a new motor mount?
On the battery side it looks abit short without the spacer under it.
Or maybe its just me.

I think spacer under bulkhead is lowing the roll center.

All three can be found here. That being said, most do not run the side pieces.
They nor any other company have any in stock... Anyone else having luck finding some?

Contact Jeff at SpeedtechRC. These items are in stock at Tamiya USA. They should have no problems sourcing these parts for you.
