i don't really go want to go for the CGM conversion as i like double deck more and your chassis's look really promising

Sweet. The Pro4 looks like a great car design. I only saw one run once and it broke and parts werent available yet. But it ran really well. IM sure with a better chassis it will corner like a dream. This car might give the old trusty Tc3 a run. Maybe some competition will get Associated rolling with a TC4.

I doubt the battery placement will work Ive basicly said they are being a bit slack claiming the design is new. Lets see if they reply

Its one thing to copy someone elses work for yourself. But its a whole different story when your trying to sell it.

Talking chassis

I dont get it ... Even edward2003 says they used a proven chassis design ... ITS got to be one of Jasons chassis..down to the standoffs and the blue color .......

Hey Jason,

Please call me as soon as you can.

If you look at the CAD drawing of the "other BMI car", the stand-offs, battery slots, and upper deck are a mirror image of the BMI car.

It really #$%^& me off when people do crap like this.

"let me copy a killer design, then say it wasn't copied"

Would be interesting to know if the BMI upper deck will fit on the "other" car......................

Anyway, Jason please call me.

Default Dont get worked up over it.

Dont get upset ProTC3... it doesnt look good.
From what i see from the pictures, the only thing thats yours is the standoffs!

Motor Mount is different.
Spur gear bearing mount is different.
The chassis cut outs are different.
The Electronic layouts are different.
Top deck looks different.

Its all fair competition, everyone copies from everyone, you copied from Team Associated's motor mount location, the electronic layout, and battery slots .
