Good work.

You mean it will be your next chassis in a few more days. Just call BMI and talk with Jason. He will get you what you need. I know you will have one. If I ever decide to get an Xray I will be having one of his kits on it.

I'm waiting for the battery hold down and also the new shock towers when available.

The TC3 and 3 Xray Ti coloured chassis have arrived safely in Hong Kong! Very nice quality.

Just one question- was there any reason for the Xray chassis' not having their battery slots chamfered???

BTW- Anyone worried about getting their chassis shipped overseas....don't worry...mine only took a week to travel half way round the world......and the the box in came could have taken a lot of abuse before ever causing any damage to the goods!! ...ie. very well packed!
Does the stock chassis have chamfer cut battery slots? I have been running the BMI Xray and have had no problems with the batteries moving.

As for tweak I feel all upper-deck cars will tweak upon a hard impact. I will always check for tweak after a run. I have found it to tweak a bit after a hit, but nothing noticable on the track.

Good luck with the new rides!

Kevin

Yes John your cars will be kicking. For only about 200 bucks or a little more both your cars will be totally transformed. Not too many times you can totally change 2 cars apperiance and overall performance for so little.

I agree. We'll have to see how things pan out. Maybe I'll have the BMI for the march ORL race.

Well even if I don't have a radio I will still come down to help out Chris and you with your cars. Not a big deal as I race a fair amount anyways. Can can miss a few weeks if need be.

Would be cool to see you with BMI Xray. They make a few cool colors. I myself like the Blue and Aqua colors. I would think the Titanium color would be cool to but the Blue and Aqua really stand out.

Hey john , you are correct , i noticed a small tweek problem with the stock chassis also. The BMI on the other hand i have not. This thing is so stiff its sick , and trust me i had a few very hard hits in our last state race , and not one problem with the car. And this is a pic of my new toy. It follows a GSXR 750 , TL1000R , R1 , and a Buell X-1 Lightening . Out of all the bikes i have had this one is the nuts !!!!!

Just received new BMI Xray chassis, what a nice piece of work, can't wait to get it together and put it on the track.

All I can say is super fast service and super quality.

Keep up the good work.

the reason i didnt champher the front and rear of the battery slots is because it would drop the cells too low and then you would be forced to use a foam spacer on top of your battery in order to keep it braced.
rowdy racer:
i will be able to replace any parts on the car.all i need is MY DAMN CARBON FIBER!!!! i will let you know when its available.

its nice to see everyone likes the new xray chassis.thanks for compliments guys.
