Talking sands!!

I'm not sure about the BMI motor mount (I own a barracuda though) the motor mounts don't line up well with the access to them, you need to skew the tool, which will strip the head if you are not careful.

But then, i'm talking out my @ss since I don't own a BMI TC3. So I'll shut up right now.

BTW, i got used to torque steer after a few laps and never thought about it after than on my old tc3. Since all the left hand and right hand corners are different anyway, the line and throttle is different. Xrays are just buttery smooth to drive - not nessicary faster or slower then a tc3. Driver skill matters so much more.

Oh yeah, my xray chassis is in the mail! Can't wait!
now why didnt I know you had something in the mail Hope you have a good time running the X-RAY they are very good cars .. I got a cuda instead . and when jason is done with the chassis .. its on baby !!!

So is there a dirt/carpet oval team forming within BMI? I'd love to be the dirt oval test mule. This car has serious dirt oval potential. With the new wedge bodies out there from McAllister, Bolink and Parma, and one in the works from Custom Works, the oval potential is unlimited.

I love the idea of the shorter 190 arms on the inside and the 200mm arms on the outside. I have been thinking about this conversion for a while now, and hadn't seen anyone do it yet, until now.

My sick mind is already thinking about this car with a 10 turn and 7 cells like the "good ol' days" of 4wd dirt oval racing.

Anyone interested in selling a clean FTTC3?

the car no longer requires the aluminum spacer.when you remove the spacer,it fits perfect and there is no slop.

I ran into the same thing when I assembled mine. The bearing sits a little further forward and pinches the bearing against the drive cups. I kepe the spacer in there but sanded it down till it fit better. The rear shaft ended up supper smooth. Its just part of building something new getting all the shims right.

OK thanks for the reply, will let you guys know when it arrives. I'm hoping it will be tomorrow (Monday) that way I can test it at my local Club Tuesday night and then again on Friday night before running it on Sunday at the finals. I'm hoping to improve my 7th place standing in the championships. Failing that I will have to run my Xray.

Yea Jay, that was pretty fun whippin up on all the nitro guys....I'll spare you any excuses on why things turned out the way they did.......I have to mention..... after the race, it was kinda strange to see someone actualy drop to the ground and breakout into tears after a R/C race with only five people in it....but hey.....you were more than happy, and you had to let it out in your own way
