You don't have to take the bulkhead off with ours ;-)

Greig, you said uprated, did you mean upgraded? And if so, how are they upgraded from the original ones I bought?

IMO if you made bulkheads to take that kind of impact direct on motor, it would likely do more damage somewhere else...like permanently tweaked or broken chassis.

I've taken some serious hits on my TC5 over the last 2 years including full throttle rear end from car dead on track.... and never seen a bent TC5 bulkhead yet.

I've seen a TC5 running in Mod with a 4.5 2s LiPo take a hit into the motor the mount survived but the motor didn't which was rather bent. Mod does 15.8 second laptimes where I race. I've never seen a TC5 break in 10.5 break, and 10.5's occasionally jump the fence that surrounds the track without break to the 1:10th cars.

If that one was bent in the car, I'd like to see the rest of it, and the other car. NO way was that in the car. I'll give you credit, after stirring so much stuff up in this forum, and switching cars, advertising someone else's upgrades, nice job on making a name for yourself.
