    Breaking Front Bulkheads

    My front bulkheads keep breaking when I crash. I'm not crashing hard but they keep breaking. I was considering aluminum ones made by Integy but they're really expensive. Are there any less expensive, stronger bulkheads that are less expensive?

    A t bone system and upper brace will help http://www.thetoyz.com/search2.lasso...F16+revo+brace

    I run a t-bone skid set and an integy rollcage on my slash. If you can break a bulkhead with that setup you deserve a special title and avatar.

    I would never every buy Integy. These pics are 5 years old of an emaxx bulk head. Maybe they don't make worthless junk anymore but I would never buy there crap to this day.

    the t bone will handle some good front end collisions .it spreads the impact through out the car . once you start adding aluminum the weight adds up fast! i just built a big block merv and it weighs almost 1/2 pound lighter than my small block merv with aluminum

    eMaxx bulk heads and mini bulkheads do not take anywhere near the same forces... not only are the designs different, but the mass between the RC's is different. You are comparing apples and oranges, granted that not every Integy part has "passable" quality or strength and the general rule of thumb is to stay away.

    There are quite a few Integy bulkheads out there that have not had any issues for this platform.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Alright I'll probably get the t bones. Will an aluminum front skidplate help with the problem too?
