get the bmi, dispite what he says its a very good upgrade. Well worth the $110, and you can still get the new motor.

The original binary stock was a 4 mag motor, the new binary stock is a 2 mag motor and meats all ROAR spec's.

I would highly recommend getting the BMI chassis. It is well worth the $110. It makes the car easier to drive and more consistent. Plus it looks really cool! Jason is a top-notch guy and will go 110% for all his customers. You will definitely be satisfied getting a BMI TC3 chassis for your car.

as everyone else has said .. the BMI tc3 chassis is a very well thought out replacement for the stock tub.. Its designed to enhance the drivability of the car as well as make it easier to drive and set-up for track conditions .. Ive been running them for the past year and can only say .. Its the best tc3 conversion on the market today.. I now Run a BMI X-RAY and cant give jason enough props on the quality, driveability and attention to detail he puts in to all of his products ... YES it is better than the stock tub...

Im not saying the bmi tc3 is bad, im soon to be getting a bmi xray .350 chassis from jason, im just saying this kid doesnt need a after market chassis his money would be well spent getting threaded shock or new tires then a new chassis that would make him any fast at his present time, im not killing a sale for bmi im just helping the kid concentrate on driving and not worring about how to seal a CF chassis. so you can say what you want about me but if you where to race at trackside you would say basicly the same thing, and for a team driver like brian mcgreevy(sorry to put you on the spot buddy) to say that the chassis will do this and that and for a driver that just started racing and can barley drive this tc3 he has is basicly saying waste your money on something that will do you no good...... jason, sorry but i think you would understand

At the risk of offending some people.... save your money for tires and battery's. Unless your running with Brad Johnson (who runs a slightly modded stock chassis) and the other fast guys at Trackside, fresh tires, a lot of practice and working on your setups will help you more than a aftermarket chassis.... my 2 cents

geez george,its nice that you blame your own incompetance on the chassis kit.you obviously have not got a clue of what you are talking about.you seem to be a very disturbed person.honestly,all you have said has been based on your own stubborn oppinion and without any engineering backround i find it funny that you can figure surface load for the standoffs.i dont know if anything could please a person like you.i am sorry that i ever did business with you and i should have realized by the way you presented yourself from your email that you were just a sour person with your only purpose in life was to make people miserable.please send the chassis back for a full refund so i dont have to here your complaints anymore.its funny that you are the first guy with these so called problems.

back to the question,i would practice with the stock chassis and get use to the car before spending extra money on a chassis kit buddy.get used to the car,buy the threaded shocks and then get used to all of the cars tuning options.after you have gotten to the point of being able to feel the changes in the car,then its time to upgrade the chassis.this way you will be able to see if it improves your driving style.hope this helps buddy
