So my slash took a nice trip into the curb and busted its bulkhead. What are your recommendations for the new Hop-up bulkhead? Plastic vs. Aluminum? Brand?
STRC aluminum is perfect..... you won't regret it
2wd Slash, Ofna Hyper 9e, 2wd AE SC10, 4x4 AE SC10
And only the STRC one.. others are 2 part designs, which can and will rip apart in a hard impact.. STRC is one piece.
FLM is also nice, and one-piece. I personally run the STRC, but know several people who use the FLM with excellent results.
Strc or FLM, Aluminum! You need the weight and strength up front.
Stock is strong enough, I have never broke one in almost 2 years and I bash hard
I am on vxl and lipo and I get over 15 feet of air sometimes and don't always land it and I have run into trees as well
I tore many arm mounts out of stock plastic bulkheads. I installed a STRC aluminum bulkhead and that problem is no longer an issue. Plus on my Rustler I like the added weight up front and I like having the bulkhead that the front suspension is mounted on as solid has possible with no flex in it.

SPC Lipo Power
If I ever do break a stock bulkhead I will most likely go aluminum but I am just saying that mine has held up extremely well
On dad's comment, my emaxx's front bulkhead is cracked a little where I broke a lower a arm
Thanks guys, I am going to go with strc bulkhead. This bulkhead is compatible with the strc lcg conversion kit as well? Common since says yes but just wanted to double check.
I just watch them on ebay and pick them up for less then 5 bucks.... I have 2 spares right now for my 3 slashes.... lol Planning ahead i guess!
