Acutually they are not the same.

the tc bulkheads have higher (2mm) shock tower mounting holes and tc shock tower has lower (2mm) shock mounting holes. Therefore, overall is the same (2mm higher on bulkheads-2mm lower on shock tower= 0mm difference) but they both need to be used together.

However though, I would suggest to try AME bulkheads+TC front shock tower combo if you run on high bite tracks. With this combo, you will be able to let the piston position 2mm higher.

have you tried that Korey?

Are the AME bulkheads the same as the original bulkheads (2nd version, the ones with the small reinforcement)?

So I'm guessing the FRP middle deck mounts up with the non-TC lower bulkheads? I'd like to try that on my cyclone - especially if it gives more rear traction

yes, the AME bulkheads are the same as the original bulkheads basically. but the AME one has beefed up.

Thanks,

Oh by the way everyone, HB just sent out an email to me saying they have fixed the problems with the webstore. So for those of you in the US that have been complaining about the webstore dropping your order if something is out of stock, that won't be an issue anymore. The parts in stock will be sent out, while the items out of stock will be dropped from the order. You should also receive an email stating what parts were out of stock, and dropped from the order.

Happy Racing!!!

Yes, the middle decks are interchangeable: FRP has the most flex, then the Graphite and the alum heatsink one is the stiffest.

Then if you want even more flex, you can just cut the brace so it's two seperate pieces (left and right side).

I just bought a cyclone s rtr a couple of months ago. this is my first touring car. I am running in a class where we run sidewinder 4600 and lipos 7.4v 5000mAh packs. my interal is 2.4375 and i run a 42 pinon and 96 tooth 64 pitch. We are racing on a tri-oval. What I wonder is what spur and pinion combinations are you all running. wide open people are pulling away from me. any info would be appriciated.
