Default BMI NTC3

How many guys out there are running the BMI chassis on your NTC3? Its my first year of nitro. I cant wait to let er rip on the pavement. Anyone want to share some setup tips for racing on a flat parking lot?

Thanks, Speedie

I run the same setup in the back of the manual but with foam tires.I have had pretty good success.Tires wear even.

STS is a bad choice or the 5 port? It came with the car. Ive gotten good feedback on how they run.

I have seen one run and it didn't impress me at all.But it was a 3 port.Maybe the 5 port has more power.

I figure with me being a rookie to nitro the motors power will be the least of my worries. It only has 2 races on it, I hope it lasts a while. It was owned by a top notch racer before me.

Yes all the mounting points on the newer version are remainning the same. Just upgraded rear suspension that doesnt affect the chasssis itself.
