B18C Turbo,

That is the Cyclone carpet chassis correct? How does it perform and have you ever tried the BMI chassis?

I am currently running the BMI chassis on my Surkian and the original black for rubber tire carpet.

Looks very good.

Later,

Yes thats the new HB thicker chassis parts for foam/carpet. They are amazing, the fit/finish and quality is exactly what you would expect from hotbodies.

Before these parts came out I was using the BMI chassis kit. That thing blew @$$hole. The fit/finish was of poor chinese quality although made in the US. You needed to use T2 rear hinge pins so that disabled you from using the Ti-coated pieces on the WCE.

The alignment of the bulkheads is off a bit, so the passenger side rear CVD blade would hit a part inside the rear diff causing binding. Every BMI chassis kit is like that, there all low quality $hit, probabyl the worst thing you can do to your cyclone is put that junk on there.

Im not bashing BMI, they make awsome stuff for other cars just not this one.

yeah I had the 3mm BMI kit. Seriously man, take your passenger side rear shock tower off and check the binding on the CVD blade, the blade will wanna "explode" inside the outdrive. Also the spacing in the rear hinge pin blocks, etc etc. I just didn't like it, compared to this Hotbodies piece.

I used it the last time out and it's a huge improvement over the previous diff. The diff screw is now switched to the right side. My diff is in my hand as I type this and it's still smooth. Even with the AE diff screw the old diff never felt this smooth. I ran my car about 7 times in mod and all is well. You won't be disappointed.
