and i guess that when i have had more time with the bmi chassis i will find good setups that will work for me and improve my laptimes
im no craig dresher, i cant build a car on a wednesday and win with it the following weekend!!
i believe that time is what you need to make a chassis work for you
im very impressed with the car !
paul i think if your making good times with your graphite tub
then you will be making better times with the bmi

cheers gaz
Yeah he certanly did not buy it for the looks! Have you seen his color cordination on that car.

You were told wrong. The TC4 chassis WILL accept 3700/3800 cells.

Come one guys. It's not like there are 50 different ways to make a carbon chassis for this car. We could say you copied our layout for the holes in the chassis to mount the gearboxes...the servo...the arm mounts. You created a chassis for our car. Cool. Looks great, and I'm sure it works great, too. In this market right now, the higher end cars are all dual-deck chassis cars. It made NO sense for use to do a standard Factory Team Carbon car like all our other vehicles. A dual-deck car was our only choice.

No problem. Not really a nerve but I'm a little sick of eveyone saying our car is a direct copy. Not true. Similarities, of course...you can only do a shaft car so many ways.
