This is where i am so far with the build of the prototype. You can run the battery inline to the left or right and also true inline. You can also run it forward with the electronics in the rear or the conventional rear position. And to top it all off, no tape is needed unless you run the battery in the conventional rearward position. You can also run either flex plates or links and springs. Here i have it with links and springs.

There will be a couple more slight improvements but this is basically what we are releasing.

When can I buy it?

Also I have some people interested in the BMI links for other cars...will you put together a flex link kit with the links, pivots, stand-offs, and screws?

I don't see your custom machined 12R5 front end bulkheads on that...did you cut the chassis for 3mm screws?

I will have a flex plate kit with all you listed. The chassis is cut for 3mm screws for the front end. I may just put the complete AE front end in there. Still not sure. The new pod will be an option part which is one of the reasons why it is not on the car. Another reason is that i haven't cut one out yet.

Looks good.
I like the aluminum top deck.

So no more double wishbone front ends ?

The double wishbone front end worked good but it seemed that the majority of people dont really want to veer too far from the norm. It seems that people want to be able to share setups with others and go back to what they know. The other downside was the cost of manufacturing. My cost is close to the retail so it almost makes it not worth it. I guess thats the downside. The molded strut front ends are a much more cost effective choice.

You would need the chassis,lower pod plate,cross brace and the links and springs. The wheelbase is also a considerable amount longer.

My CH has been getting better and better. Can't wait to try the new set up, and I like the flex plates.
