    new rear bulkhead 7029x ??

    Hi,

    Quick one - the two screws (2.5x12) that go into the rear bulkhead via hollow balls just won't bite. I only noticed once i used the traxxas wheelie bar (with replacement 2.5x14 screws). I'm guessing the only remedy is a new rear bulkhead? annoying! Anyone else had this issue? Also, is 7029x the latest version of rear bulkhead as i saw some people debating it? Cheers..

    Take a small folded piece of paper (very small) and put it in the hole in the bulkhead leaving a little sticking out, it will give the screw something to bite into and should last until your new one arrives.
