I'm curious how much weight the outside rails add to the xtreme chassis. Seems like all the exrta support posts would be a bit heavy.
I use the IRS Side bars on my warp and the weight added is minor, but still there is additional weight. But I treasure my electronics

Default BMI and Warpspeed

Guys and gals,

I have driven both the BMI eTC3 and the Warpspeed Demon1 and they are both awesome cars.

Heres a few highlites and lowpoints on both-to be fair!!!

BMI
Exceptional build quality and nicely turned down standoffs.
Battery slots pre-beveled and has the wide center slot to aid in cooling and reduce weight on battery side.
Tweaks out beautifully.
Drilled for NTC3 and standard rack. Optional mounting hole for perfect ackermann with NTC3 rack (requires modifying diff cases though).
7-battery slots that are more forward than stock and moved in towards driveshaft.
You can leave the motor screws in and pinion on to remove motor!!!
You still need to access the screws through the rear suspension.


Warpspeed
Innovative design with batteries moved in and on right-not left.
6-battery slots centered for and aft for near 49/51 weight distribution.
Awesome lightweight clamping motor mount retains AE Cam!!
Drilled for NTC3 and standard rack.
No torque steer even with low winds from a dead stop.
Cheap standoffs-sometimes hard to get and expensive.

All in all I would say you cannot go wrong with either car. The bling and perfection of the BMI is hard to beat-but the Warpspeed is an easy to drive and fast car.

Heres he best part-both are exceptional in ultra high bite!!!

Ray

If your going for some nerf wings, check this guys out
www.superdavegl.com
they are way stronger than the brp ones, I have had them on my current chassis for about 6 months now, and taken some pretty hard hits, and they are still standing
They might be just a bit heavvier than the brp one though

Thanks for the info ProTC3. I dropped you an IM since your PM box was full.

Cain... looks like you and I are in the same "Budget crunch" boat.

Best of luck,
UnderDaHill

Lem2... good point. I forgot about the increased chance of electronics damage with the carbon fiber chassis. Guess I'll have to move out of novice so I don't get hit as much

rayhuang... thanks for the info. That helps a bunch.
