you can use a basic $149 T-force off the www.teamcrc.com website.

it comes with the large d-ring diff, AE front, etc. parts you need to finish near any conversion plus it has the "dampner tubes". a option some never consider

Hi,

The PayPal is still being installed on the site. our web guy went to the Vegas race. He works on the site at night after work and he is working long hours lately.
as getting parts to completing the car I just bought what I needed and went from there. you can use either a 12l3/4 and any Assoc based car.
I use either the damping disks or the 3 shock setup. I tried the dampener tubes too but on a low bite track. I used the older Bolink style ones.
Fast Ho Cars has a good idea too. never looked into doing that

Thanks

i saw it in one thread were someone mentioned paying for a BMI conversion thru Paypal. don't remember where and how many days back. that's why i asked. i don't need it on their web, just need the cost and BMI paypal email/account.


yep the basic CRC T-fource or CK are often not/never considered when i talk to people because they only think or know of the RED versions which are around $225. that $70 extra (besides the red ano) for the lower pods, good tires PU & GYs doesn't hit them as a value...don't know why. but that seems why the basic CRC versions aren't considered and the more common 12l4 yet cost more are.

the nice thing about a BMI-12 it comes with it's own lowered pod plates

Fast Ho Cars;

Hi,

You can call B.M.I. Racing at 1.352.544.03468. Keira will provide you with all the info you will need. just tell her I sent you.

your'e right. I fall into the group of theguys who think of CRC=Red link cars, higher prices than the one you posted. I do run thier diffs and other parts on my B.M.I. car.

Thanks

I will have my L4 tomorrow so shud be able to build my BMI up. On the L4 front end i am best lightly rubbing the lower arms on a fine grit sand paper to make sure they are 100% flat and true? Someone mentioned that they have seen peoples L4's front ends tweek if this is not done? Thanks

Rick,
A light sanding helps, but make sure you measure the left and right side to make sure they are the same. Install just the lower a-arms on the BMI chassis, put the chassis on a flat surface and caliper from the a-arm to flat suface. Most cases there is .015 different from side to side. Just throw some shim under the 1 arm to make them the same. Your car will track better and tweek easier. Don't use the graphite brace that goes between the uprights, it tweeks the chassis.

Thanks

yup yup shock at the front of the brace. you will have to adjust the length of your shock. If i remember, you need to shorten it.

Here's my Vegas setup. Qual'd low in the C, but car was good enough to run in the low A to high B. Lapped traffic can be rough sometimes. Finished 2nd in the C after getting banged around and setting laptimes good enough to run in the show.

Front:
Jaco 2-stage tires 1.75", 1/4 inside sauce
.020" springs, IRS kingpins with trinity red lube
crc aluminum 10 deg uprights(with cross brace)
1.0 deg. of camber
shims middle on top a-arm
servo mounted on L4 angled mounts
4mm ride height

Rear:
Jaco 2-stage tires 1.85", full sauce
.075 asc t-bar
New crc shock w/35wt. oil and green spring
2 screws in t-plate
ASC white diff lube on dampening washers
Orange springs on dampening washers
4mm ride height

Speed 12 body

Car was very easy to drive and the traction level was very high. Rolled out at 1.78" with the handout monster stock motor.

Tim
