    Keep banging for your buck with REM parts! Lifetime bash warranty will be replaced with no questions asked for free! You bend it, break it, scratch the color, strip the threads.... mail it in and they replace it. I've mailed in my whole entire 1/8 stampede before because of scratches and bends,, it was replaced. I've had more than 20 warranty replacement for things I've bent, even told him I feel guilt about it but Jeff replied by saying, "that's what the warranty is for", "just send it in and I'll send you a new one". He told me I sent in more ally than all his customers combined over the years. They even made minor changes to help prevent the damage I inflicted lol.
    I believe FLM has a similar warranty but I've never tested it.

    Although the decision seems to have been made already, I'll add that if the Integy bulkhead is still made in two pieces and screwed together, then it is pretty weak. I wouldn't buy any 2-piece bulkhead.

    The STRC, Racer's Edge, and FLM bulkhead are all about the same price and about the same quality. I prefer FLM stuff; just steer clear of Integy parts.

    I do like FLM's full line of parts as far as looks go.... they nailed that. I simply chose one and ran with it due to the incredible warranty.
    Just for the record and for future readers, can someone make a statement about the FLM warranty? Do they have a restock or exchange fee? I read somewhere that they have the full basher replacement like REM but charged a small exchange fee, it didn't seem likely but I would love to know some facts about it!

    I dunno about that. Never had to have anything replaced. I ordered some of their stuff when doing my Maxx build through RC Bros. because at the time, they were the only ones who listed their stuff as "in stock". What that really meant was that as soon as you ordered, they placed an order with FLM. Well, at the time, FLM was doing a major batch of parts all at once and their stuff was delayed in being produced. Anyways, I ended up getting advice online as to who to email at FLM. Gina @ FLM gave me updates every couple of days as to how production was going. Seeing if I needed anything else, etc. Basically the best customer service ever. That purchase made me a customer for life.

    The STRC is the most popular amongst owners according to my recent slash upgrades survey.

    Among the three brands mentioned, STRC's products are definitely the most widespread and common brand. And in a variety of fruit flavors!! LOL!!
