Default BMI racing chassis upgades

Guys, I have never been able to find anybody online that sells BMI chassis upgrades and top decks. Also I have never seen their website.

I did come across BMIracing.com but i think thats a company that makes 12th scale cars and I didnt see anything there about chassis'. Please tell me thats not their website, if so...im blown away.

BMI doesn't produce the upgrades anymore. They are now just producing a very nice 1/12 car.

I may start doing TC kits again someday but i decided to back out for a bit until i can see the direction these cars are going. For the time being we are making a car for 1/12th,1/10th and accessories for both.

Hey Jason, I mentioned this elsewhere, but I wanted to get your opinion on it.

If you've seen how a battery mounts in a Type-R, you know that a tray bolts in from the bottom to hold a battery in place. This can be really useful with LiPo, since you can use a steel tray and easily get to weight. Do you think this kind of mounting could work on a more traditional chassis layout? It would require a large rectangular cutout in place of battery slots which could potentially do weird things with flex, though maybe having the tray bolted in could fix that?
