In addition to the handling characteristics that everyone is mentioning..... there are several other details that eveyone should be aware of and appreciate, if you have never owned a BMI conversion.

1. The battery slots are always pre-chamfered perfectly. The batteries will always sit perfectly flat in the chassis and you will be able to throw away whatever tool you currently use to file the slots.

2. The bottom of the chassis has a tape slot under the batteries. This allows your battery tape to be flush with the bottom of your chassis, rather than extending below your chassis. No more tech inspectors complaining that your ride height is too low because their measuring device is sticking to the edges of your tape.

3. All of the carbon fiber has the sharp edge removed. Rounding the edges is a pain to do by hand, and there is nothing worse than cutting yourself or splintering a piece of carbon fiber into your hand. All of the egdes are prepped and ready for whatever final treatment you do. (e.g. CA glue, nothing, etc).

The BMI cyclone kit includes all of these and is the best upgrade you can invest in for your car.

I wish I can fully utilize the BMI chassis for foam carpet...but unfortunately..my local carpet track has switched to spec rubber tires.

I did have it on my Pro4... absolutely the best aftermarket chassis available.
I'll be looking forward to BMI's asphalt chassis if it gets released.

i totally agree, its a very nicely done set, all i did to mine was lightly round the slots, and ca the edges...

works great on foams... at our local track, the grip is still fairly low, so i have been running mine without the stiffening posts...

You guys won't be disappointed in your BMI Cyclones!

They all ran great for us in Vegas!

To make an already great chassis a little bit better I found that if you file the radius in the battery slot square then the pack will sit all the way down in the slot. You only have to do the negative battery end of each slot. Small detail I know but they all add up.

Picked up my Cyclone todaay, and i ammm very impressed.

Come across a problem tho with the rear Diff, i try and fit it to the bulkheads and it seems to "wide" one side will fit in and the other wont, also the diff seems to wobble left and right, i have tightend the diff, but no luck,

What you think?

Also make sure that the bearings are all the way onto the diff outdrives, the fitting is quite tight so it might be that it's not quite all the way on.

I'd like to post some pics of my beloved Cyclone as well.
Fairly standard,
The VFS heat sink is made by Alex racing, the motor heat sink is made by a Hong Kong company called TOPCAD and that is a MMR diode behind it.




The Andy moore World Champion edition looks nice,
But I think I will simply upgrade my Cyclone rather than buy a new kit.

if you are talking about the pulley wobble thats normal you cant really do anything about that but ifyou are talking about the diff in beetwen the bulkheads you have add shims hope it helps.
