Default T1R vs Evo2 bulkheads

I see people wanting to trade their Evo2 for T1R bulkheads, any reason for this? Are they not the same? Thanks.

Bling factor...The silver bulkheads look cool mounted to the BMI chassis.

I have both the T1R and the EVo . The Bulkheads both look cool to me, not sure if they were put on the BMI Chassis because i dont have that yet. But i think the evo2 bulkhead has a extra few holes near the spur gear, belts area.

Default Xray Bulkheads

I have polished T1r bulkheads on the BMI Titanium colored chassis and it looks awesome. The bulkheads on the team kit has more material milled away as well as other lower arm mounting positions.

Those of you that are waiting for the factory kit to arrive, I must say that you will not be disappointed. Like any Xray kit you open, you are welcomed with literature and manuals. Then, looking underneath it all, is the chassis with new bulkheads and top deck. My heart started racing as I examined the fine workmanship of the graphite and CNC aluminum pieces. The improved arms, belts, rear tower, outdrives, oneway etc will drive your hunger to assemble the work of art. You will all share my feelings when you open yours.

Just did exactly that, minus the tap part, and it worked awesome. Just drilled a small hole then threaded the set screw in. I turned the hinge pin around and the new hole even lines up with the flat spot on the pin. Perfect . Thanks alot.
