Stock chassis is fine. Would like to try the bmi chassis though. Chassis is the same on all kits from the original black-WCE.

the BMI asphalt chassis are using 2.25mm carbon fiber it get more flex and the chassis is more tough than regular chassis. and Jason did extend the rear wheel base by 3mm to get carry more traction on high speed connering.

i run that chassis on Mushroom Bowl Battle Race 13.5 BL class last week it handle pretty well than the regular chassis get more traction and stable. i only have one chassis only try to call Jason from BMI to check whether he still have some or not.

Hi All

I am considering playing with 5 cell BL mod, currently my car weighs in at 1540grams for 6 cell BL mod, just over the legal weight limit, with 15 grams added to balance L to R. With PT

Electronics are 9550 servo, LRPTC SPec SP motor and FAAST receiver, so little could be gained from electronics alone.

I am having a hard time coming to grips with the Euro weight limit of 1350 grams for 5 cells Mod (I know the EFRA guys messed up the limits) but what is the lightest people have been able to achieve with their Cyclones?

Dropping a cell would bring my car back to 1450grams (excluding any ballast), but this is still a whopping 100 grams over the limit.

Guys, Im having trouble finding an inexpensive WCE cyclone! Is the brushless motor mount neccesary to mount the brushless motors?

if you're running stock or 19T the stock motor mounts are fine...for low turn BL 3.5/4.5 the new motor mount allow you to run larger spurs...
