There is no "better" chassis in this industry. The XRC and BMI's chassis both placed well at the recent nats in Cleveland. You need to choose what you feel comfortable with. BMI has my vote and that's my opinion.

Good Job Jason - You work really hard to put the best product out that you possibly can and for a very good price to your customers.

Hi Jason,

I would like to ask this question: Can you make the exact replica of xray chassis? With the thickest c/f you could offer ?

Default convert mini into ft kit??

I was wondering what I would need to convert a mini ti into a ft kit other than the chassis and upper deck.

I am finding that the kit is hard to find and I am going to be running on carpet anyway so I planned on using the xrc chassis and a front diff.

Thanks.

Jamie

If I observe the chassis closely, xray chassis have glossy finish while yokomo is none.
When we talk 'bout chassis we'll talk 'bout performance, tweak, so on a so forth rather than which is harder to scratch. Just my 2 cents.

BMI has my vote.

all c/f will scratch but the colored c/f may scratch easier being that the top surface is actually a thin layer of fiberglass.they make kevlar c/f which has a colored tint but is much more flexible so i went with the c/f with the fiberglass top layer.my black and satin black are the most durable in these situations.

i can do all kinds of thickness chassis kits but after a certain point it becomes not noticable.i have 4 mm and it felt the same as the 3mm under the same load.the 4mm was only more rigid under excess load which actually bent the bulkheads.that to me is overkill.in a nutshell,i try to get it to function properly with minimal weight.i dont see a need for it to be thicker unless i switched to component grade c/f(0-90).hope this helps

Corey,

I ordered a FK kit with the xrc chassis today from superiorhobbies.com in FL. Give them a call they may have more.

What is your set up for the big boys track? I used to run there all the time but took a year or so off ( I used to be the only one to run xray!) Thanks, Dave I.

Protc3 : would you take order for 4mm chassis ? btw, is the 4mm chassis are woven 0,45,90 degree angles too ? I wish you could make one exactly like in the attachment.

I'm going to pay you by telegraphic transfer and please calculate the air shipping to Jakarta, Indonesia. ( perhaps second day delivery ? )
