Speedtech has the spurs, and anyone local to western Washington can pick them up at Rain City Raceway in Lynwood.

thanks, I found that out right after I asked the question. What are everyone's feelings towards the blade swaybar vs. wire bar, and also the PDub racing bumber. I am also going to be running Tamiya shocks on the Carpet FK, and the XRAY shocks from both cars on the asphalt car, I am going to run the aluminum bodies, this I think is a have to for around here, we break at least 3 shock bodies a race. And I will also be running the belt tensioner, and everything is going to be going off to be anodized black. And despite what people say, I will run the titanium screws, the run them on the 415 and the Evo 4 in all the aluminum, and I have run them on a Yokomo, Losi, and an AE. Even in the aluminum pieces.

What is the big deal with the BMI chassis? There is a racer at my track who has the chassis for his FK but I still beat him constantly. The untouched FK is still what I consider the best and why would you want to replace so many things on a car that is already top notch?

A chassis doesnt matter as much as the skills behind the wheels.

i have never used a stock fk chassis. i got mine used with some cheap, crappy aftermarket chassis. so i figured i would buy a bmi 350. so far it is a 200 % improvement!

Rustler,
The BMI chassis is far superior on carpet due to less flexing in the corners. This will make you more consistant and have more steering due to the suspension doing more of the work. You can get the car more dialed. The batteries are also shifted foward .350 of an inch. This will give you a tad bit more steering due to more weight bias to the front end, in other words you don't have to make the front end softer. The batteries are slightly shifted to the centerline of the chassis. This will put the center of gravity closer to the centerline of the chassis and help in the car feel more nimble in the switch back section of the road course.

As far as beating the other driver regularly, maybe you are just a more skilled driver. Money and equipment cannot buy skills.

Major difference from the stock chassis and the BMI. After using the 350 this past weekend I won't change back.

haha but you dont have a fk. only a evo2 anyways,
and .35". thats basically 9mm forwards. wow. well marshall, should i go that far forwards or should i stay 5mm forwards?
and does anyone know if xray uses inches or mm? not bmi but xray itself

Xray is from Europe, they use the metric system, hence the metric screws on the car.
