Does anyone know the part # for the small aluminum standoffs ( the threaded and unthreaded ones) that hold the front of the flex plates or have a link to them in BMI's online store? I can't seem to find them anywhere and I had a screw back out and lost one of mine..

Jason-
I thought that I saw somewhere that you'regetting ready to release a 1s lipo main chassis. Will it be possilbe to get that in the RR upgrade kit? Also, when did you say it'd be ready?
Thanks,
Eric

The the 1/12th front and rear along with 1/10th pan car fronts are done without the need of an adapter.


And yes wim, i am making an adapter for the wheel you sent me to fit this arbor
How did it take this long for someone to think of that... That's awesome Jason!

I can sell the chassis with the RR upgrade kit if you like. I should have the chassis available soon. Just waiting on my carbon fiber order to come in so i can start running them. The chassis has been designed for a while. Just playing the waiting game again

Looks like it'll be time to make another BMI order soon. I haven't been too worried about getting the RR upgrade but the lipo chassis sounds like it'll tip me over the edge. What is different about it?

Also my car can be a little pushy off power on corner entry, would less castor correct this? I'm running the whatever the kit setup is, so would I move a spacer from the front to the back of the hinge pin?

I would try a little thicker side dampening first.

The difference between the stock chassis and the lipo chassis is that the weight is in the rear position and is also pocketed to lower the cells. I will have some picks up shortly. We also shortened the wheelbase a little on the lipo chassis.

I haven't really worried about the RR upgrade as well. But the RR upgrade with the 1 cell lipo chassis sounds good. Looking forward to seeing the pics of the chassis.

Cool beans, I'll give that a go. Keen to see the chassis too, now I just have to play the waiting game until the 5000mah 1s packs are available

Jason - When do you anticipate a complete kit being ready with the lipo chassis upgrade?
