I thought they might tell me why the warpspeed is better then i was going to ask the BMI drivers the same question and see what they say. Then I would make up my mind based on their opinions.

Cheers,

Don't get that started again lol. The only problem with that is the last time someone did that a big fight erupted between the two camps. I do not think that is professional or mature, so being a representative, I'd say it'd probably not be best if you asked that particular question on both the warpspeed and BMI threads. What might be good questions are what are the advantages of each over the stock TC3, then based on the information you recieve, make your decision.

Just trying to keep the peace.

I agree with Brian but here is some info


batteries moved in towards center and centered perfectly front to back. This makes the car near perfectly balanced and leads to very smooth, predictable handling.

Batteries are on the right, not the left. Thus the motor is now on the left!! Again-in simplest terms, better handling on our predominately right turn race tracks. Also-torque steer has been eliminated!!!

Chassis is made from ultra stiff-high grade Carbon fiber. As is the upper deck. This is not your usual super-flexi "show" carbon fiber.
Outdoorrs in the heat-or anywhere with a hot mod wont warp from heat!!

Chassis is drilled for the normal steering rack as well as the NTC3 swing rack.

And last and most important-its FAST!!!

ive run both chassis and i wont say which one i preferred but Howard is right...also Warpspeed chassis has a D1 or D2 chassis and also the option to change the wheelbase even more then the stock chassis which in my book made a nice tuning option and my lap times improved a few tenths a lap

Mossie i wont sit here and banter on who is better or not.

The warpspeed cars as Howard Hudson pointed out have alot of tunning options.
Also we are here to help you with any questions you might have, as well as victor franco the owner and designer of the company. Both cars are capable! But it is always an advantage to have more tunning options availabe to you.
I promise you even though it aint pretty it will be the best thing you have driven!
