I race my NTC3 with rubber tires on parking lot type tracks and I also use a solid front axle.

tank you very much for replay. So, it is not good as new improvement. I got it, I will stop them to make, any way too much work/time for nothing.

The BMI chassis is a bit too much for my budget...unless it'll fix all my problems. If it'll take the slop out of my steering, the vibration out of my tank, etc, it might be worth considering. However, I don't think a chassis can address all of the problems my NTC3 has. I don't need a crash resistant chasssis, I need the best chassis for racing ROAR events. Should I just stick the stock one back on?

What have you guys done to take the slop out of all the ball cups, pivotballs, and hinge pins. There's not a whole lot of slop in each one, but when they're all combined the performance is reduced.
From what BB, NTC3nut and others have been saying - the BMI chassis has reduced tank vibration, given the suspension a rock solid foundation (making it much more consistent and less given to variations) and just made the car more solid. Their results have been fairly dramatic. Once the summer's over (and work crap lessens again) I think this is one competitive upgrade I will get over all others.

Default Centax Clutch Question

I just installed a K-Factory centax clutch and am wondering what type of lubrication you folks are recommending for the thrust bearing. Also, what a poor design. The bearing is exposed and could have been very easily conceiled. Just my 2 cents.

Thrust bearing are usually exposed. I use Racer's Edge Hyspin grease. It's important to get the clearance right so the bearing don't get to exposed and pick up to much dust.

I regrease after a day of racing. Some regrease after each heat.

I greased my K clutch every race weekend and took it apart every other weekend. Grease will not stay in the thrust brg, no matter what type of grease you use. Mine exploded last weekend taking the thrust brg. and all clutch shoes out of it. Dunno what happened? I even had all clearances to minium instead of maxium. LHS can get the complete clutch but no parts, must come direct from Trinity, must be a Ernie thingy!
I use the K swing rack and love it, and I did'nt have to pay $40 for , more like $25, it helps. I like it the most because 2 bolts removed and the whole assy is removed.
I don't understand the slop problem you guys have, my car has zero slop in the steering..
The BMI chassis is expensive and heavy, but it really works for me, I can run any engine any pipe and any fuell tank now and it stays in tune and never over heats . The car is now planted and rock solid! So was it worth the money? Yes!! too me it was, maybe to you guys with no NTC3 problems, no, you don't need it. Believe me, it works! Well worth the $$$$ If you want better lap times and a car that is planted and goes where ever you point it, with almost no chassis roll, then, buy the chassis, you won't be disappointed.
Hey Swen! How's it going? email me, I have a used proto type chassis I was working on that's yours for free, just carry on the R&D with it!
Perfectionist? I like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Steering

I really dont have a excess of slop in my steering but there is some. As far as the needing a chassis because of fuel and engine and pipe problems I have never had one problem with that ever. That is just hard to fathom spendint that much money on a car to "fix" a problem like that. Might be time to switch cars. Now if you are looking for more performance or better looks than I can see that, but because a stock car isnt operating correctly than sounds like a lemon car or someone doesnt know how to follow directions on building a RC.
