Yeah, checked the tightness of the axle at the track the other day, and it was fine.

I did find that one front tire was about .03 smaller in diameter than the other tire.

Car is tight but free, rear axle is free of drag, and the front wheels spin forever.

On your downloads page, the Orange text on dark gray is really hard to read, and the links go to a local file, which doesn't work to download them from the internet.

Otherwise, the site looks nice.

EDIT: And your team driver application doesn't download, or goes to an error "page not found/no permissions" page.

I do a little web work on the side, first thing I do is check links, so, sorry if this is annoying.

ah ok, i had it safed in my favourites and it went to the original adres with the old website

edit:
If you want an honest oppinion.

The orange letters on the download page indeed need to be changed
I prefer a clean website without too many colors. The buttons that looks like cheap carbon i would also change. The original website really looks clean and tight.. This one looks a little more dark but also busy with different colors and all. The BMI logo is also not really instantly vissible, orange on a black background just doesn't read that easy.. it looks a little cheap or more comic book layout then the original one. Sorry, hope you don't mind

Hey Jason, had a chance to run again today but this time on a 'green' track (we just got 4 rolls of new CRC carpet), with a new and much larger layout. Showed up with our same set-up but with the thinner c/f 'hockey sticks'. Put Grey frt./White rear shoes on and the car was super easy to drive (15.2-5's), but wanted to try a couple of other compounds. Threw Magentas on the frt and the car was too reactive up frt but averages dropped to 14.7-15's. Had Dbl pinks to try up frt, so I threw them on. Saw an immediate improvement in the cars handling up front. The car felt very balanced and I guess fast for now, LOL. Laptimes improved once again with averages of 14.1-5's. Started with a RO of 102 (w/a Novak 17.5) and ended up with a RO of 105 (w/a Viper 17.5). Gotta order pinions in the 60+ range
So all in all, very good feedback today

If you would like a picture of your car or you and your car, Send me a picture to jason@bmiracing.com. I will get them on the site as they come in. Thanks for all of your support guys.
