Dpowers since we race at alot of the same tracks I will let you run my extra chassis for a few races so you can give a comparison. You have run your car stock and with the tekno stuff at Dalton so I believe trying it there one weekend to check the lap times would be a good idea also. That would be a stock vs. tekno vs. bce test. That would be pretty cool. =)

Out of all these drivers, only Mrs Drake still uses them. That may change in the future. But Dylan R. with Mugen sure is putting on a show for everyone using the BCE chassis.

They used them while they were designing the RC8T. They finished 1st and 2nd at the Nationals at the Nitro Pit in truggy. Im not sure why they would not have good comments about Bill. But since your around there area I take your word for it.

I give bill credit. Jammin Stole the JPX chassis for the CRT2 and Kyosho stole the ST-RR chassis from bill.

Yea. They also ran them the previous year at the Farm in a MBX5t(Maifield and Saxton)while they were testing the platform that they wanted for the RC8T. Ive never visited the BCE Speed site to tell you the truth. Im quoting from my RC memory...

Keep in mind that a lot of top drivers with major manufacturer chassis sponsorships are restricted from using certain aftermarket parts (such as a BCE chassis). Bill's products were at the forefront of development for several manufacturers' production cars, and the drivers did very well with the product. It's unlikely, however, that a major manufacturer such as Associated, Losi or Mugen is going to allow a small business like BCE to take any credit away from their vehicle by allowing their drivers to use BCE's stuff. I don't have a chassis sponsorship, so I'm free to run what I want. I've used BCE's chassis, and they make a noticeable improvement in the car's handling.

I have to ask John, where did this animosity come from?

I've yet to meet a factory driver that had a bad thing to say about BCE speed or Bill...
