Default BMI COPPERHEAD 12R

I want to start this thread for our soon to be released Copperhead 12R. It has been a while since we have revamped our existing CH 12 due to complications with my sons birth last year. Now that things are ironing themselves out, we are back at it. I have been working on this car for some time now and have added many new features to the car. We are not holding anything back with this car. It is going to be sold to the public direct through BMI to allow us to invest as much money as possible into the car. We dont want to pad the price to allow for the discounts needed for resellers. Being that our products are made in house and not imported from china, our costs are much higher and profits lower. In order to keep this car in the affordable range, this is what we had to do. You will understand when you see it. Thanks for all of the support you guys have given us. I will post pics soon.

On the 12 is inline and 10 is going to be inline or across the chassis probably. The 12 is going to be the first out and then the 10 will follow on the same platform.

The battery location isnt a huge deal as there are many cars that do this. The suspension is what is making this car unique. Thats all i can say at this time.

It has a pod that doesnt use cams. It is adjustable. I had this feature ready to go 2 years ago but was waiting to finish my car to get it on the market. Then things went crazy over here and I had to let it sit. Looks like other manufacturers are doing this now but I went about it differently. 10 ways to skin a cat I guess. I may be partial but I feel my way is best.
