I would also look at the BMI 350 chassis. It is half a mm thinner, but just as stiff, includes a top deck, and the batteries are just as far forward overall as on the XRC chassis.

I agree, I have an xrc chassis and wish I had purchased the bmi instead, although my car is good, I resent having to file the battery slots for hours on end!

Actually-the BMI 350 chassis IS 1/2mm thinner-but its a lot stiffer torsionally. A LOT!!

But-het this is just more of a good thing!!

And weight distribution on the 350 is very similr to the XRC with the batteries on left full forward. SO great for stock and 19t and still capable in modified.

I would get the BMI 350 over the xrc one why??you might ask
well here`s why
On the bmi the rear bulkhead are machined out properly so you can(if you want) run the lower roll centre holes for wish bones ,xrc you can run only the middle & upper.

Battery slots are chamfered for you on the BMI, xrc not (you have to do it your self.
edges of the BMI are rounded off ,not on the xrc
rear shock tower is 1mm wider for the shock loc,xrc is the same as the FK, front tower the same on both accounts
You get lovely engraving from BMI, xrc you get bugger all
You get lovely engraving on the battery straps from BMI also front bumper support

BMI can do different colours,xrc any colour as long it is black

One thing that xrc has is more support for the rear drop screw, on the BMI it still a tad to close to the edge for my liking

The BMI's battery slots are also .350" foward (XRC is about half of this) and their closer together (left & right side) to the center of the chassis. The bottom chassis is also about 4mm narrower. Less carpet scrubbing. I have the black satin version. In Japan, they call it the dry carbon look. It's all the rage there on full scale vehicles. And looks sinister on the Xray. Jason at BMI rocks!
