Jason and Wayne, thanks for designing and building a great kit!

My son ran his BMI L4 for the first time on Sat. and the car was a dramatic improvement over the stock L4. He finished second in the A main and had the lead for a while before a hitting a corner dot. He was able to pick up 4 laps over his previous best.

As fatdoggy said, the car can carry a lot more corner speed and it seems easier to hold a clean line. My son was a lot smoother around the whole track. He was thrilled with the new car (now I just have to convince him to let me try it once in a while.)

Keep up the great work guys and thanks again.

Rick

Rick S...
Thanks for the kind words... Glad your son likes the kit. Call Jason if your interested in one for yourself. I know he's gonna be running more off here shortly and he has a small list of people starting again!!


Tony,
I think it was safe to say I was fast... lol... I wouldn't have been that fast without the power of POWER PUSH batteries

To the BMI guys, how much would a L4 conversion kit + shipping to Canada would be?
Thanks

Looks great. Good job on the electronics, looks clean. Only problem I see is that capacitor on the speed control. Most of the time I run my batteries all the way forward. You may want to relocate that so you have the full range of adjustment.

take care

Won't be a problem. I put the batteries all the way forward and still had room for clearence.

That does bring up a question. Are there suppose to be something to use for battery locators or just use the tape to keep them in place?

Oh ok, just looked that way in the picture.
I just use tape and it's easy enough to get each side equal if when I mount them back a little. I have not had them come loose yet. The chassis is super easy to tape the batteries in.

take care
john

With as much steering as this thing has now, I can't imagine running the batteries forward for even more steering though.

John,

You were right, the cap was in the way. I had to move the esc forward to get the full adjustment on battery location. One of these days I will buy me another esc to replace the twister.
