I think there is no parts list but you can find a manual here http://bmiracing.com/bmiv4/images/in...structions.pdf
Also at bmiracing.com there is a webshop where you can see all the BMI spares available.

Interesting...I really like the new battery mount positions with the tape holes, that will make things much easier. Will the shock mount cross brace be aluminum like in the pic? I'm hoping for graphite. I like the thicker front bumper too.

wow that looks really good. A lot less cutouts (almost non). More place to put the electronics and the chassis is stiffer. (sometimes i felt the db10rr was a little too flexy on carpet with a 2s 13.5t) It seems it takes 2s saddlepack in the middle? Is that lipo brace aluminium and if so why no carbon?

I see it has seperate plates under the front suspension? Is that for adjusting the width?

edit:
Just a note, could the bumper be made of kydex and not carbon. Carbon breaks after one hit. Less flashy but more practicle

Believe it or not, i made a graphite battery strap with an aluminum shock mount and it was actually heavier than the aluminum one. The aluminum one was also more rigid. The cool part about the battery strap is that it offers 6 mounting locations with 3 holes. If you flip it around, it offsets the shock length by half the center distance of the holes(puts the second set of holes centered between the others). Then you shim for verticle height. Very adjustable.

The front allows for track width adjustment. A total of 8mm. The chassis is milled for 1S LiPo so you can run either down the center or across the chassis. You can run your electronics behind the battery, on the sides or in front. 2S will fit as long as you shim the battery plate up. We went with the more rigid chassis design and also narrowed the chassis up quite a bit.

The bumper was beefed up alot as was the mounting. It is no longer just mounted by the screws and body post. 2 screws and lock nuts were added. The wall thickness is doubled also. We had absolutely none break in testing. I am very confident.

Is the new front end for the 12 going to work on the 10 as well?
