Hoping that I can get some opinions on the BMI chassis for the T2. I am looking to upgrade my car for this winters carpet season and I was wondering what I would gain/lose by switching to the BMI version.
Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

Gains: Nice 3mm thick chassis, top deck and shock towers. Beveled edges on the battery slots that are perfect. Super stiff chassis that also lower's all the roll center's at the point of contact for the rest of the chassis. By the car being stiffer it will also free up in the corners and carry more corner speed while not tweaking on impacts.

Losses: Battery strap doesnt match the C/F of BMI.

Thanks EA!!
Sounds exactly like what I'm looking for. One more quick question for you. Are there any major setup changes I should be aware of when I switch?

I nominate EA for president.

While we're at it though: BMI or original Multi flex for asphalt?

Naaa....I wouldnt make to good of a President!! LOL

BMI also has an Asphalt kit that is very good. I didnt get to run it but I think some of the Team guys may have ran the top deck at the Nats. There are some differences but I am not 100% sure what they are as I havent seen one in person. I'll see if I can get Jason to answer better for you.

I can help ya here EA...

The BMI asphalt chassis is 2.25mm graphite as opposed to the 2.5mm chassis that is stock to the T2.

The BMI kit doesn't have the cut out slots for multiflex. Being 2.25mm is just the right amount of flex without having to adjust it with screws. The top decks are made out of 2.25mm graphite as well with no wings for corner posts.

The kit works great on asphalt. I used it at the Express race in NJ - TQed and Won both stock and 19T and my TQ in 19T was faster than the Mod touring TQ!

You can ask Alex Lopez about that.

How much difference is there in lap times with the stock T2 chassis vs. the BMI Carpet chassis?

for the most part,i changed the way the car is braced and also the roll center and CG.i pocket under the bulkheads,motor mount standoffs down to 2mm.this seems to keep the car more flat going through corners and increase corner speed.the chassis allows you to brace the car wide or narrow for a different feel and increased rigidity.the kit makes the car extremely stiff and easy to assemble due to the countersunk mounting holes on the top decks and shock towers.no guess work or messing around trying to get it to go together straight.
