The new one has more bracing. So I guess new one.

i think you have to use the new lower bulkheads to in order to fit the new upperbulkheads...i heard some pages back that the peices are lower and higher than the older ones for some reason.

The newer upper bulkheads will work on all the previous lower bulkheads. They are just braced more, and have fewer camber link mounting positions. The newer style upper bulkheads only have the two we ever use anyway, so it's totally fine.

Because of the extra bracing, the shock towers are mounted 2mm higher up to accomidate it. So we use the "lowered" shock towers to get the same overall height as the older upper bulkheads and WCE and previous shock towers.

If you wanted to use the older upper bulkheads they will lower the entire shock tower assembly by 2mm. This is a common setup for carpet racing with foam tires. It allows you to mount the body lower for that "slammed" look.

I honestly haven't been able to try the older style upper bulkheads for any comparison. I plan to do some testing with them sometime soon though. I'll be sure to post my findings when I do .

I'm new to the Cyclone forum and I'm glad I finally made the switch. Anyone have some Cyclone TC setups for asphalt? All I can find online is for carpet racing. Thanks.
