    integy aluminum bulkheads!

    my long awaited integy bulkheads finnaly arrived in the mail today!




    my integy bulkheads!
    i modded them so that they were to fit the lst diffs didn't take much material off at all.
    in order to do that i needed to modify the bulkheads pretty significantly

    i superglued the front bit of the diff case closed and if i ever need to open the diffs i'll heat it up and the superglue should melt right off.

    result is a perfect fit!

    i'll put it back together and bash the snot out of it and i'll tell you how it holds up.

    first of all congratulations for keeping the modding spirit high!!

    but...i ve been there... i am sorry for the rest of my post:

    1. your diffs' case will crack very soon with so much filing
    2. prepare for bended bulks even if you dont crash. removing the arm pins then is nearly impossible.
    3. ++ to weight

    I was really frustrated with these bulkheads in the end. They just dont deliver what they are promised to do: be strong. and actually i didnt find ANY advantage over the stock ones, and i bought the sets TWICE!

    they are light but they are really heavier than the stock

    the front one has a weakpoint around a centimeter to the right (edit: of your thumb) at your second picture, the right part is solid on the chassis while the left one kind of flexes. with time and jumps, it bends, and the pin is stuck in the end hole. not to mention if you crash something its bending a lot. because its heavier too

    anyway you may like yours i dont want to discourage your effort! other than the front one bending, they are really indestructible.

    you were right about the diff case cracking thing, i went for a run today and started to hear a clacking sound first thing that came to my mind was the diffs ring a pinion but i turned out that the case had cracked! i'll get a new diff case tomorow and i''ll dremel more from the bulkheads this time i'll make myself a chassis brace.

    i wish rpm made bulkheads for the revo then everything would flex instead of snapping.

    that diff case went quickly eh!

    its not easy. you have to dremel things a lot and they get weak. i found out that the stock bulks need less dremeling than the integy for the diffs to fit! i have problems as well with the diff cases (i went through 3 front ones) and now on the front i have a reinforcing ring around the diff to hold it together... its a messy mod.

    unfortunately i believe that the bulkheads need the most dremeling possible so that the diffs hold. the good thing is that the point you remove material from them isnt exactly their weakest point so its not that bad!

    i ll try to find pics from my mod later

    only thing useful i could find from my past.... shows why the integy needs much more work.

    It's integy at the end of the day. Nothing they make is up to the job. It's just shelf queen tat. Stat away from them.

    'The integy bulks are fine. Just a durable hard alum case. Cant go wrong with that.
