yes he broke it. The lower A arm cracked letting the bolt loosen. Other than that its still good. Im just asking, I like to get the best of the best, and the copperhead looks like the best of the best.

Speaking of which, how's the new front end coming along? ETA? Price?

Got a tax return burning a hole in my pocket!

Hey Guy,s

I picked up BMI's New Copperhead 12 I got the conversion kit. The switch over went very well from my DB12RR all the parts went together with ease.

Went to run it at my local track and right from the door the car felt great!!! It was very easy to drive and had alot of steering rotation/corner speed!!

Like Jason said the Newly designed flex plate allows the car to rotate better on high bite surfaces.He was spot on with that!!! The car maintained alot of corner speed!!! Can you say DIALED!!!!

I have a starting setup in a editable PDF form so you'll be good to go from the start.

I checked the site does not show the Copperhead conversion kit.
Did you have the part number for the conversion kit?
Thanks for the setup.

By frontend we are refering to the front suspension part of the car. The car comes with the AE dymanic front end like you would have seen standard with prior AE cars. Many people are now using conversion kits to fit the new AE 12r5 frontend to their 1/12 cars. Jason has a new frontend in the works, it will be an option part in the future.
