OK, so I finally broke another major piece. This weekend I was doing some jumps off the big hill at my local gravel pit and I decided to practice jumps in 2nd gear (I've mastered 1st gear jumps - adjusting pitch in mid-air). Well, I had a few jumps go bad and ended up flipping over and landing on the top of the rear end pretty hard. Broke the rear bulkhead.
Now I need to decide whether I just replace it with a stock platic piece (under $8) or If I start a quest towards a 'Maxx Bling' of my own. I really don't see the need for a different chassis right now and I like my RPM wide A-arms, but aluminum does seem like a good thing to do in some areas. The bulkhead looks like it might be one of them. They aren't intended to flex much so alum. is OK there, plus the added strength would be good.
From lots of searching around here it appears that GA is the most respected one for this part. GA has their 6061 bulkhead set on sale now for $80. That's a lot of money for a couple little pieces of aluminum. Can someone help me understand why it would be good to make this upgrade? Need help pulling the trigger, basically.
P.S. Does anyone know why the GA bulkhead braces have a maxxtraxx.com logo on them? Is GA related to maxxtraxx?
