Agreed! BMI all the way, the pre-beveled slots and CA's edges are like icing on the cake. . My car had so much attention on it's first day of racing.

Axel,

A bit off topic since it's the TC4 theard but, did you notice a difference between the BMI and your normal Pro 4?

P.S. I finally sold those batteries, if you still remeber.

yeah i remeber the batts . I noticed a huge difference with my regular pro4 and my BMI one. The Thickness was the major difference i notcied pysicaly, but on the track...it was like wow! it was alot easier to dial in my car(indoor track). I noticed i was cornering alot faster this time too, and after a couple more runs i found the right setting, also the CF on the BMI to me felt alot more durable. Now that i'm gonna race ashpalt again, it's gonna take awhile for me to get the right setup, remeber the BMI pro4 is meant for carpet, but i got some feedback and people said stiffer chassis on asphlt will corner faster than more flexible ones if the setup id JUST RIGHT.

So yeah just go with the BMI, i got a deal so i had to jump on it.

It is gonna be simular because it is a double deck TC-4, but I would not say it is a copy.

My congrats goes out to Craig and the AE crew for their hard work at the Reedy Race. I saw some 12.9's out of Blackstock, he was just as fast as everyone else.

Default What shock caps are those? Yokes?

Also looks like he's using IRS outdrives. Is this the standard for the pro drivers as well?
