Do you guys think anyone will be able to tell what car I drive by looking at my controller?

Hey Guys,

I had the same problem with the "F" block even after a good buddy did the mod on my Diff case, so the best way to fix it was to slightly grind approximately 1mm from the nitro steering rack where the ball end screws in so that it was recessed. I also used Schumacher ball ends and the problem was solved.

Thanks for the compliment the car is as fast as it looks, and the driver keeps getting faster as well. Its been a real good rookie year with a TC. Im looking forward to carrying all of that experience into the nitro season this summer with my BMI NTC3.

" some changes
Can you guy briefly describe some of the changes existent in the BMI chassis that makes it better than a graphite TC3 chassis?"

1. The chasiis will not be tweaked from heat after a couple months

2. More consistent race to race for the above reasons. Also won't get weird on you as the chassis heats up DURINg the race.

3. No need to mill chassis for battery placement, optional steering rack, etc,

4. Pimpy fashion plate looks get all the props at the track.

The main advantage I got from switching over to the BMI chassis is in the middle of the corner. The car actually turns now. With the stock tub I had to throw the car in the corner pretty hard to get it to load the front tires enough to bite. Now the car is smooth and carries alot more speed through the middle not scrubbing it off trying to get the car to turn. Have had to learn how to drive over again, but at least its learning to drive fast this time.

Man, I saw that chassis this weekend and that thing is awesome. I was told that BMI also has an aqua color. I check the web site and they say on red, blue and black right now. Does anyone have any pics of it( aqua)? I would like a green one if they have it.

i know they make the Xray chassis in aqua so im sure the tc3 comes in it...there are pics of it in this thread somewhere if you want green, you can e-mail Jason the owner of BMI and im sure he would help you out, but you might have to pay for the sheet of carbon fiber as w ell since it isn't a normally stocked color... just e-mail him and ask
