I am too lazy to remove all the electronics, I just blow it off with compressed air & spray with metho (denatured alcohol) where it is still dirty. I have never damaged any electronics cleaning this way. I really like the BMI chassis I have the version 1 & version 2 I actually prefer the V1 as it provides better protection to the fuel tank. The standard AE chassis is good, the only reason I got the BMI is I went through a "I must have all the shiny things phase"
it definatly makes a difference to the handling of the car on the old NTC3 but the new V2 Factory team (out of the box) I think is a better performer than my original BMI. I have just put the new rear end on my V2 BMI chassis but I have only driven it on the track for about 10 mins in that configeration before I got T boned & broke the tank, so I cant really judge if it is good as the standard V2FT. I dont like the Hardcore chassis (anyone want to buy one PM me) I hope all the V1/V2 stuff isnt confusing when I am referring to the 2 versions of the car & BMI chassis. My favourite feature of the BMI is the relocation of the steer servo, you can use a diff spring in the standard rack & lock it tight & use a Kimborough servo saver on the servo
