    Angry FLM bulkheads....missing parts

    so i just installed my FLM front bulkheads on my EMAXX 3908 and i have two questions. first the chassis doesnt match flush with the bulkheads. is that right? im thinking maybe they were made to fit the FLM chassis... but they mount up to the screw holes in the chassis perfectly. i will try to include a picture here in a few. secondly, they included the bottom suspension pins, but not the top. the stock pins are too big to fit the FLM holes in the bulkhead. anybody know if this is how they come or was i shorted parts by accident? i am throwing a bday party for my daughter this weekend and wanted to show off my baby to all my boys who will be there....anybody know of some suspension pins that will work? also one last note...the RPM bulkhead brace i had fits but not exactly tight, pretty close tho. is this cool or should i spring for the FLM bulkhead braces? thanks for all your help guys. hopefully get some pics up by lunch time.:

    I never had the stock chassis, but they fit perfectly with the flm chassis. You can dremel the chassis to make them fit, but with all the added weight of the bulkheads, and shock towers you are stressing the chassis, I would recommend getting the flm chassis.

    Yea that's kinda what I was thinking, what's the point in putting $180 into my diff/bulkheads and not getting the aluminum chassis to go with it.

    Are you sure you have front and rear bulkheads?
    When I lighned up the front on the rear it looked like that

    I see that's the rear bulkhead. Bolted up fine on mine but that is where I broke my chassis!
    Eneded up with the 10900!
