So Mario, you still didn't answer the question. Will Hudy offer the bulkheads for sale or are they going to require us to buy a new kit?

He said that there is no reason to offer them individually as it is an expensive item for dealers to have to stock and it will be a rare sale. I'm pretty sure that was a round about way of saying no they will not sell them individually. lol

I'm inclined to agree. If you bend a bulkhead from a racing or bashing incident there is going to be LOTS of damage... most likely enough to warrant buying a new kit.

If you really want to buy a set individually then keep an eye on Ebay once the kits are released. There is a hobby shop that "parts out" kits on eBay. You could most likely get the bulkheads individually that way. He currently does this with the FOC

From what I can tell right now with the pics on the web, the new bulkheads just remove some material to lighten them. But if you run smaller ESCs and receivers, you should be at or under weight anyway.

They would only be worth the expense if they changed the rear roll center to drop it a bit.

There is an extra hole to adjust the anti dive to 1.5

I gather that's what he was saying as well. Really sad trick to get people to buy a new kit. I thought XRay would be above that.

Yeah, I was hoping to get the new mounting positions as well as the front with the new camber link location.

I've bought a few things from that guy on e-bay. Really quick with shipping and everything is always nice.

Thas good-I think my current set-up could use a touch of antidive to be honest and I am TOO lazy or busy to drill my own holes.

The Pearly Gates? Oh, you mean come visit your track in Ohio. Too far of a drive, unless Rich drove. I would be there for the Nats, but you scheduled the race on my youngest son's first birthday. Shame on you!

I did this mod - works really well. Makes the transition from power on in the straight to power off in the corner silky smoooth. There is really no difference in the feel of the car at all from power on to power off.

If you run the long arms, you need to do a bit of grinding to the lower stringer or they arms will hit it. Not a problem with short arms though.

sands-thats exactly it!! car feels different at turn in to mid corner-like all of a sudden in the middle of the corner somtthings changing. Its not something to ruin your laptimes-just something to dial out once everything else in the set-up is close.

Another reason for lightening the bulkheads is so you can put the weight where you want it on the chassis and keep the center of gravity as low as possible.

Ray, got the short arm cars dialed, the shorter the camber links the better. It will definetly help eliminate the chassis rubbing problem we were having.

The T1R chassis is a composite material chassis.
Whereby on the EVO2 is a C/F chassis. Yes both can be used either way.

The C/F battery holders are only meant to be used on the C/F Chassis only and vice versa for the composite chassis and battery holder.

This is because the composite battery holder are a little longer if you compared it to the C/F battery holder.

Just my 0.02
