ooops me broke my T-Maxx: Rear Bulkhead Questions

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Yep - week old, and I dropped the rear end out of my T-Maxx - YIKES the stock rear bulkhead on the t-maxx bites - broke right on the bottom screw holes

Anyways any suggestions - been looking at aluminum ones - but not sure what to buy - liking some out of the US ( but not sure I want to bring some in - are the Traxxas aluminum replacements worth there money? As well there is a front/rear set on Ebay - anyone had any experience with these?

Welcome any suggestions or comments
drive it like you stole it.....

I second the RPM stuff. Although aluminium sounds like the best solution, look at it like this, RPM is guarantied for life and it will not break. Aluminium is strong but the day will come that it will BEND and when that happens there is not unbending it. It is trash at that point. Now when it bends you will have your front or rear end parts still mounted to it and you will have to cut the aluminium up to get out the non broken parts as the hinge pins and bulk head are bent and will not just pull apart. Aluminium is very BLING BLING but not quite as functional as RPM stuff. Not to mention the ability to dye the white RPM stuff to your own color. I did this with my truck and it turned out excellent. This gives you the ability to custom color your truck like no one elses.

thanks guys - great information - I searched hi and low but can't seem to find RPM rear bulkheads for the T-Maxx 2.5r

any links to a website would be greatly appreciated - on the rpm website I can only find bulkhead braces - but cant see how this will help with where i broke my rear bulkheads - I snapped the two little nubs off the bulkhead where the shock towers get attached.

we had the same problems with a new t-maxx 3.3 bounced it off a rig tire and the a-arm snapped and took out the bulkhead , we ordered a complete set from a guy on ebay here in canada , made of alloy, wicked strong no complaints and the maxx is run hard

here is a current set offered for yours
