Gaz, sounds good.

I was thinking of getting a BMI until how soon I realized that the FT TC4.

Default The Team F. chassis is going to be much stiffer....

than the BMI one. The BMI is about the same stiffness as the molded carbon one. So there is no gain in that department for carpet.

I think the main differences in the BMI and the tub chassis is placement. I know that the BMI has stuff all moved around. I am still running the tub until Jason gets more in stock then I am switching.

Default Yes, I agree Bob Barry.

better placement, but I think with the flex you don't gain anything on carpet. A new design like the TFversion will help with flex and you can balance it easy with the new motor mount. I hope Jason will make a TF version of his chassis.

I'm afraid I'll have to disagree with you on that one. I have both and the BMI is definately stiffer. It also was more predictable on carpet.

RC Knight,
the FT chassis will not be as rigid as my kit due to the difference in the material.the component grade c/f is only rigid front to rear and is very flexible side to side.component grade C/F also has almost no memory meaning that it will hold a tweak.if you notice on my chassis kit you will see that it is pre drilled for a center stiffener that is actually functional.this is an option because it is not necesary unless you run on extremely high bite carpet.the placement of the batteries,motor and steering rack on my chassis is the strongest advantage over the FT.i assure you the FT is just a C/F version of your existing car.and as for me making a FT version,there would really be no point.the FT is almost an exact duplicate of what i released 6 months ago.

and as for questioning the engineering at BMI,remeber,this is a fun thing for me.designing chassis kits is childsplay to our business.we design medical molds,machinery for automated micro circuit repair machinery,we took part in the fabrication of a satelite that went into orbit.AE im sure does there job but to say they are more qualified than our company is really not true.all of our chassis kits are designed to be an improvement over stock,if they are not they do not get released.

Default TF not as ridged?

Well, I have not had one in my hands, but AE does say that you won't need an after market chassis for different track types. All those standoffs down the center should make a difference even if the CF is not as high grade. I guess we will all have to wait and see. Tony P. any comments?

I would be much happier and it would shut me up if you would make me my custom chassis.

using standoffs down the center is not very effective.being that the upper and lower footprint or mounting surface is very narrow it has very little effect on the rigidity.now adding multiple standoffs just will increase the chance of tweak being that it does not have enough bracing surface.just look at the set up they used at the reedy race.no side standoffs to add flex.what happened to those usefull center standoffs?they do not do much.this is why i offer the wide center support that braces wider for more leverage and allows the brace to do its job without all the clutter.trust me on this,i started this whole wide bracing and center support bit about 3 years ago.i agree with you on the motor mount dude.it seems when i do something people want to see it like AE setup.when AE does what i did its now ok.i cant win.

Hey Jason,

Could you tell us what are some differences in placement of things on your chassis rather than the TC4 tub? (i.e. battieris moved closer in to center)

I appreciated it, Later

I hear that. Can't wait to see what Jason has up his sleeves. I always like my BMI TC3 and BMI Pro4. Both were great improvements over stock setups.
