    The hot racing bulkhead uses 2 screws to hold the halves together, this will prevent the ring n pinion to stay meshed when under throttle

    I see what your saying. So far it's not a problem of it holding itself together; I need something stronger than plastic to survive the bumps and bruises I give it, and aluminum is harder and light weight.
    I don't believe in painting a company all with the same brush.

    Integy is junk. It bends like a tin can.




    I know these are emaxx parts but they all suck if they say integy!

    I'm pretty sure you'll be happier with less bulk changing.
    Cos I went with aluminum bulks as well(hr).
    Not only bulks but ring gear/pinion.
    Still have to shim.

    Cool beans.
    The Integy unit is ordered; if it bends; I'll try hot racing; if that bends.... I dunno...mahogany?
    Aren't they all made of 6061 aluminum?
    I just put the new Traxxas bulkhead in; good idea; I should have boiled it.

    With aluminum bulkheads you don't really need that bolt that hr has
    My gpm bulkheads have held up to 4s neu 1112 power. The trick is shimming then reshim once the gears have broken in from a few rides

    I would only consider Integy for "non stressed" parts.(as in dress up items only.)

    Added some chassis stiffeners from the Toyz; wheelie bar, Traxxas1/10th wheelie bar wheels, Traxxas heat sink for the motor and found a new toolbox to keep all my stuff in.

    New shoes!

    I'm going to test them out this afternoon.

    Installed an Integy front bulkhead, installed "purple" springs in the rear and put the black ones in the front.

    So I just came back from outside where it is 2 degrees celsius; I beat the crap out of it with 20-30 five foot tall jumps onto hard packed snow; it landed on it's nose many times and did allot of cart wheels into the snow banks etc., then I ripped it through the shush and puddles with some speed runs, I took it like a champ! guaranteed this would have broken the bulkhead with the old OEM set up and the purple and black springs soak up the jumps very well; the tires don't do as well in the snow as the talons but they are far superior on the pavement and concrete.

    Thanks I'll do that; I put one in and found that it was too much and took it out; I'll take it apart when all the snow is gone and see it if needs a shim.

    You might have to shim the opposite side of the ring gear
    Depending on the mesh
    For me I had to shim both sides on hr bulkhead

    I never thought of that; Thanks!

    I'd like to give a hats off to the guys like Jimmie and 50TOGO and the other pro's on here for helping me and the other guys and gals that are new to these things and helping point us in the right direction; I'd be allot more frustrated with this thing if I didn't have some good advise.

    Well I've been beating the crud out of my MERV for over a month now and nothing has broken! Nothing!
    I've cartwheeled this thing though all kinds of stuff and no problems.
    Also the Integy front bulkhead has taken brunt of it all and it's still in perfect shape; no bends or damage of any kind; so in this case Integy has come through; I smoked a tree flat out off a jump and it took it like a champ. Love it.

    Fine. How do I edit? I don't see an icon....


    Edit... all but this post I can edit. Why?
    I completely disagree that . . . is any sort of abuse.

    Fair enough.

    I suggest you make it longer than an hour.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    So I stripped out the front diff this evening me thinks. Off to the hobby store!
    It wasn't shimmed; I had one in there and tried it out; it sounded like a ticked off cat; so I took it out; I should have checked it sooner I guess.
    Oh well they don't cost much.
