It is interesting that the screw holes are off.

Are the holes off in relation to eachother or just to the profile of the chassis? If they are only off in relation to the outside profile of the chassis, it shouldn't affect the toe in, as long as the bulkheads are parallel to eachother. Mainly, are the front and rear bulkheads parallel to eachother, as in the front right and rear right, and left accordingly?

If so, it doesn't really matter how they are positioned on the chassis in relation to the outside profile. Just as long as all the cuts in the chassis are parallel to eachother, it wouldn't matter if the bulkheads and battery and everything else were mounted at 45degrees to the outside profile, the car would still go straight. It would just look really screwed up.

if you think about it though,if the holes are tapered in this pattern,the outside surface of the bulkheads would be at an angle on the chassis and the hinge pin blocks mount to the outside of the bulkhead.this would give you angle in on one side and angle out on the other side.

PitCrew,
the rear bulkheads dont line up with the fronts.
It is like a full sized car with a solid rear axle dogtracking.
The whole rear assembly points to the left, thats why the left side takes more shims to bring it back, and makes the right wheel base 2mm longer.
So even a BMI chassis wont help this sick puppy out.
Fred

Jason,
Since your chassis is milled out for the bulkheads would the chassis possibly hold them straight?

i pocket the chassis with some clearance for the bulkheads.unfortunately the is no way to have the chassis change the angle of the bulkheads.im sure that xray is already working on any issues that are being found with the car.there stuff is always top notch.im sure they are not happy about this.i would almost guarentee that they are on top of this.

Default Straight Rear Bulkheads

I made a bridge between the two rear bulkhead to make sure they stays straight. I also contersunk the top carbon fiber piece so their is no play. It work pretty well for me.

Jason, gee, I was hoping you would take that as a compliment.
I'm saving up to get your chassis, as I live on an ark, I need 2 of everything.
That's what I get for being my sons sponsor and trying to race too.

The bulkhead bolts together just fine, it's just that it all points to the left.

Never thought of using my Tamiya suspension blocks for a car stand. I like it.

Default Shocks

When assembling the rear shocks it says use ball joints part number 308316, not the ball joints attached to the parts tree. I pulled everything off the parts tree and then read instructions. I don't know which ones to use? the short ones or the longer ones. Help does someone remember?
