Just beware if you need the shocks a little longer. You can use the Tamiya 5 mm ball cups in a pinch. I may be by TORC Friday - you can check it out...

Long Arms
Tamiya shocks

I am experimenting with the long arms some different shock positions in the front. It is slightly further to the outside the position on the front arm than the available whole.

Tamiya shocks are just too good and too simple to ignore...

Itīs been used. I just like to keep it clean..

i hear the bmi split chassis is awesome on carpet but what about a rubber floor? i know it sounds crazy but the winter series over here is run on an indoor running track and its like rubbery....so how would it handle on there with a stock motor?

also what about outdoors? i dont want to have to buy 2 chassis' one for indoors and one for outdoors because if it comes to that id buy a t1r for outdoors...its a damn site easier.

so what are your thoughts?

I heard the Split bmi is really for carpet only since it has alittle more weight to the front of the car.. But someone should check me on that.

the split chassis is said to give too much weight to the front on rubber tires per josh. so I am not sure that it would be a good all around chassis. As Ray Huang on the BMI forum has said, the 350 chassis is probably the one to get for a good all around chassis.

Man I just bought a TC4 and put that piece of crap together. There is so much crap you have to do to it. After building 3 xray's every other kit just seems like junk.

Guys....the bashing of the TC4 sounds just like everyone else comparing the FK to the Evo2...

If you will, consider the TC4 a pre-modded TC3.....they took the stuff that people were doing in order to make their TC3's competitive and packaged it that was as a kit....there are a lot of differences betweent he TC3 and TC4...but they are subtle changes....just like many of the changes on the FK were subtle....

We're talking about Xrays on this thread....you don't need to bash other products to say how good ourXrays are...

Do the Xray springs fit the Tamiya shocks? Love the springs (because they cost me a lot) could care less for the shocks (shattered one last weekend...oil guts all over the front windshield.
