    Solution: Hot Racing bulkhead tie bars

    Edit: or is that a HR tie bar already? I think it is... Must have been quite an impact to brake a machined 6061 piece of aluminium...

    Got it back together. Going out Saturday or sunday. Wasnt too bad took way too much material off the first time. Left side didn't need much and right side wont handle too many big jumps landing on dirt!
    I ordered some dog bones and have the UE cups due in next week. Going to make the center cvds true cvds with dog bones on each side

    no you just have to modify the wheelie bar mount but it will work with the rc solutions roll cage i had it on and did bad landing ripped up whole back of my truck since took off the wheelie it gave it to much leverage if i landed on the rear

    Even without the wheelie bar a bad landing with the cage will rip up the rear
    Shouldn't really bash with the wheelie bar on

    I had a spare hr tie brace but decided to put the stock one back on!

    bec pro installed!
    i have the bec power going only to the hv 7950th and the esc has 6 volts

    the pro has a 7 volt and 7.5 setting no 7.4 setting .i read up on it and have read 7.5 won't hurt the servo.
    has anybody have heard otherwise?

    Did you hook it up to a Castle Link and get the settings page? I was able to switch voltage by 0.1 with my 10A Castle BEC. Yours in the professional version. Its gotta work.
    Its All relative to your perspective.

    You would think! For some reason the pro goes from 7.0 to 7.5 v
    I have the 10a also and you can do 7.4
