Ti is really pretty. I prefer the black just because.

Today was my first outing with my new FK and was running it with the new chassis. The car handle very great and the chassis make the suspension work very well.

I have the Pro 4 before, all I can say is the FK is just much easier to drive. Lots of steering and the rear is planted. I am looking forward to run it in my club race next week.

What two are you comparing? The BMI and the new Xray chassis, or the two of his BMI's. If you are comparing the BMI to the new Xray chassis, the BMI is 3.0mm and the Xray chassis is 3.5mm. But otherwise, both BMI chassis are the same. All 3mm.

If I got the new thicker Xray chassis I would have to dremel out the servo location because my Airtronics servo sticks out over the edge of the chassis.

New thick Xray chassis

With the whole Serpent USA no longer importing XRAY and HUDY, it might be awhile.....

If the rumors are true that Horizon will be the new distributor, then hopefully the car will be more mainstream. It would be nice to walk into any Hobbytown or lhs and be able to buy an Xray knuckle or two.
