You are correct. The BMI Xray chassis is stiffer. BMI gets carbon from the the same place as we do. The 3.9 chassis we tested was a factory Xray chassis from Europe.

I have the 2.5mm BMI chassis and the solid carpet deck, very similar to what the Mi2EC Foam car will have and I can tell you, there's pretty much no flex with that chassis and top deck combo. PW and Teemu both ran 2.5mm chassis on their cars in Vegas.

2.5 over 2.5 should be plenty stiff provided the chassis is not all webbed out.

Yeah you should try to make it....it might be home to some bigger events in 2006/7 and the place is awesome...check it out... IRP There is a hotel like 2 minutes from the track its new and cheap and its in a safe corn field in Northern IL. not like the area in Cleveland.... No I cant make it out there this weekend and Im not sure they are going now...check with Brad and see what hes got to say.
