Works great!
Here's mine.
I did the same exact setup and it works and looks great. Takes about 5 minutes and your done.

Xray also uses a plastic transponder mount that may work ....

I ended up sanding down the red alu-mount from my Barracuda - drill a hole in the chassis, countersunk it and mounted the holder. Looks like a million! I'm not at alle worried about tweak and lost stability! After all it's carbonfiber

I'll post pictures when i get home.

I'm very interested to see what Jason (BMI) will come up with for this car.

Ahh.. Hence your boardname.. My first as well as my surname is norwegian - my great great grandparants emigrated from Norway to Denmark.

Folk fra skandinavien må vist stå sammen for tiden og holde lav profil, med tanke på det der sker nede syd på :-)

I'm pretty sure Jason from BMI said the chassis would be out in 3-4 wks after snowbirds. Isn't he racing at the Snowbirds as well? Try to find him and ask...

ps try stacking 2 topdecks together, or dremel a top deck if you can find some graphite. It doesn't have to be pretty as long as the screw hole line up correctly.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know that I've been running this car for a few months now and would be glad to "help out" any if possible

I mostly run asphalt with rubber tires but I will be gearing up for the carpet nats over the next month or so so hopefully I can help out with those types of questions as well as soon as I get my feet with the car on foam tires

Got any setup on asphalt using Sorex 36 with C-Med insert? I prefer not using traction compounds and track has long a long straight and highspeed corners. Motor will be stock 27 turn.

Also track is untreated (no VHT) and is semi rough asphalt, not smooth.

Sounds like the chassis is a bit soft for carpet. Interested in your take on this car with foams.
