Our engineers reviewed the stock front bulkhead and found something curious. The stock front bulkhead does not sit flat, which can seriously affect suspension settings and adjustments! The RPM Front Bulkhead sits flawlessly level, meaning your front kick angle and A-arm angles will be perfect, providing a superior platform for precise suspension adjustments.
We also cored out the bottom of the bulkhead. Why? First and foremost, it helps the bulkhead sit flat. Next, it significantly reduces the weight of the bulkhead. Our version is more that 15% lighter* than stock! By coring out the bottom of the bulkhead, it allows a convenient place to stick some modeling clay to adjust the weight bias of the truck. Leave the weight out if you want the front light; add it in if you want it heavier. We also include a handy dust plate to cover the bottom of the bulkhead on vehicles such as the Rustler, Stampede and Bandit that leave the bottom exposed. The dust plate prevents build-up of dirt and debris, which could affect the handling and weight of the truck.
Each RPM Front Bulkhead is built from our bulletproof blend of engineering grade nylons, made right here in the USA. If you want strength you can count on and engineering you can trust, look no further than RPM!
Tech Notes: RPM Front Bulkheads for 2wd Traxxas 1/10 scale vehicles are stock replacement parts and replace stock Traxxas #2530 & #2530A. This bulkhead fits the following vehicles: Slash 2wd, Nitro Slash, Bandit, electric Rustler, nitro Rustler, nitro Stampede & electric Stampede 2wd (including all Stampede 2wd variants). It does not fit the 4x4 versions of any of these vehicles.
* Weight comparison is based off of the stock bulkhead versus the RPM Front Bulkhead without the dust plate installed.
