during testing/development what has broken if anything from the BMI components on the car. I'd hate to get 1 to the UK and not have a few spares that I may need. IRS arms and the like are OK over here.

we have found that the mass of the weight on a brushless motor is very widespread through the distance of the length of the car which makes it not very critical in motor placement.we did move the motor 1 mm toward the right side of the pod but found that the car balnced fine both ways.

The only part I ever broke was at snowbirds when my radio blew up and I hit the wall hard I broke a flex plate, I have no Idea how that happened the way the cars setup, and It wasnt a major break just a stress fracture I didnt even notice it for like a month

Btw, is symatric IRS front lower arm released yet? I haven't see any news about it since last said by Jason, or just miss something?
