The BMI kit is going to be an aftermarket add on.

The kit will consist of...

-3mm Rear Upper Deck
-3mm Front Upper Deck
-3mm Front and Rear Shock Towers
-3mm Chassis with bulkheads pocketed to 2.5mm
-Aluminum Posts for corner bracing
-Aluminum Center Brace for Front Upper Deck

I'm not sure what Jason is going to charge for the kit yet. That is completely up to him.

Thank You,

Would it be better to get the S version and build up or the competition version and just swap out the parts.

Thanks again

Hotbodies has an update to the shock towers. Andy ran some that were not from the stock cyclone.

I was looking into getting an S then upgrading. But to make the car up. The bulkheads are around $100+.

The BMI kit will probably be $130 or so.

Add it all up and you know have a $400 cyclone that still is missing some of the other nice parts.

I am sure the BMI kit will rock.

I'm not sure you wanna do that since the bulkheads & shocks are plastic you'll spend around $120 to $150 just for those 2 upgrades + the $150 for the kit. Your better off just buying a standard cyclone and add the BMI

The Cyclone is aming its way (slowly) over here...
The S tubby just became available. They're selling well...

More Cyclones!! Nice!

About time too...

FOr some reason they just weren't all that popular here for a while.
Schumacher definately has a firm grip on the market here...

i just want to let you guys know tha Eric Anderson of EA Motorsports will have a couple of the first producion BMI Cyclone chassis kits for sale in vegas. I will be sending them to him monday in vegas so anyone that is going to the IIC race feel free to stop by his pits and check one out.

I will be figuring a price on monday for the kits.It will consist of the 3mm chassis plate milled down to 2.5MM,front and rear top decks with outboard bracing,front and rear shock towers that the front tower is lowered slightly and shock mounting holes are scalloped for more tuning,and 4 corner brace standoffs along with necesary hardware.the center brace will be optional so we can keep the cost down.we found in testing that the center support is only needed in extreme high bite conditions.at normal medium bite tracks we found that it was not needed.i dont want to have the price be higher due to a super high traction specific part.the center support will be available for people who will need it though.
