Do you have any pic's of the carpet version of the bmi 1/12? The site has nada.
here is a pic of the BMI 1/12th carpet conversion.
as for the center brace in the front of the chassis,the holes in the lower arms vary from front to rear and inside to outside.i have to this day never had a set of arms that would not tweak the chassis with the center support in place.i always machine my lower arms and redrill and helicoil the mounting holes in the lower arms to square them up and make them symetrical.
and what i found with 4 point bracing on the rear pod is a more solid precise pod.the better braced,precise and squared up the car is,the better it will work on the track.
