need help with Composite Craft worlds car build

Post by asashaw »

Hey guys, just wanted some opinions with what you have done to the rear bulkhead to make it fit with the a-arms. Also I am running into some clearance problems with the upper deck hitting the rear shock tower... what did you guys do? Any suggestions would be great. here are my pics... I think the rear bulkhead looks ugly now.
thanks
asa

you have to trim the bulkhead back pretty far just like you did. As for the rear shock tower, you need to shave a tiny bit off the bottom of it so it will clear the top plate.

you didn't need to trim so much off the sides of the battery area. now if you did want to use the car, there's not much there to hold the battery pack in the back. if at all.

i've never used a rpm bulkhead with the worlds car composite craft, but a stocker bulkhead only needs to be clearanced about 1/4".

for the tower making contact with the plate, just cut about an 1/8" strip off the bottom of the tower.

I don't have a really good shot of just the bulkhead. This one shows that I cut it similar to scr8p's

I also cut the top to follow the cut out of the top plate

couple different examples. all black rig shows stock tower and just clearancing the area under the upper deck screws, keeping the gap overall nice and tasty (imho). second pic shows how little of the stock bulk really needs to be trimmed.
