Why would anyone sell a bent bulkhead in the first place?

So you're going to buy them chassis in bulk, without extra bulkheads then🤑

Haha, I would go out on a limb and say, if you've bent a bulkhead...you're probably gonna re-kit anyways

I've seen bulkheads bend from traction rolls on other brands.

Maybe the A10'23 guys haven't seen bending bulkheads, because they had their plastic hubs break first? Now that all will be aluminium, it'll be either control arms or bulkheads bending - my opinion. But happy that other drivers stay away from walls I like to kiss...

So, has anybody run this car yet? I just finished my outdoor car (graphite chassis) and it seems rock solid. Looking at the alloy hubs and bulkheads not sure how someone could bend these as they seem to be very strong. FYI...the hubs are not a copy of the AMX hubs...the ARC hub is lighter and actually has a different shape.

the hubs are more like the mugen/cero hubs and if you flip them you can use the caster doodle from the AMX (on my ar10 ) my '25 is coming

(RCtalking)... Me just looking a bit angry at the alu steering links or the lower bulkheads (near topdeck)Ö I see them parts twisting like a noodle. But hey, some people just keep a hammer to mitigate..

Mach10_shooter, I got one of the alloy cars as well...starting the build on that this weekend. One thing I noticed is that they went with a different shape for the chassis and not the same shape as the A10-25 graphite chassis. Kinda wish they had kept the same shape, I think that will work on carpet. Guess time will tell.

They look very similar to the Mugen ones and I've not bent one of those yet.
