how many fingers am i holding up dude.are you feeling ok.its identical.all i did was make the drivetrain fit.my kit is completely different than the standard ae.it doesnt even resemble the stock car.this is as bad as if i was to copy ae's mold for the tub and sell it as my own.

I bet theyve secretly bought a bmi and stole the topdeck off it. All the standoffs look the same too.

Well first and formost, you have to treat future customers with respect, i was going to buy from you.
But that snard remark about "how many fingers am i holding up dude.are you feeling ok" it rather offended me.


Good luck

Calm down man. I don't see how that was offensive. I'm sure he was just joking around. He could have thought the same thing about your post saying "Yours is the same." Maybe HE was offended also.

i apologize if i am offending anyone.i am acting a tad childish i think.i am disappointed in one respect and flattered in another.i spent alot of time on my chassis kit and i have alot of time in it.to see someone do this irritates me.on the other hand,some people made sharp remarks about my design on the upper brace saying they didnt like it at first.it kinda hurt but they soon started to accept it.for someone to copy it,they must have seen the functional purpose of it.i wish them the best with the kit,i was just taken off guard.

I have to agree with you on this one. BMI took a good product and tried to improve it. Now they are getting all upset because somone else is taking something that looks like his product and trying to improve it. I'm sorry but BMI did was the easiest upgrade that could be done and now he makes it sound like he re-inventded the car. This new chassisactually makes a lot of sense. Moving the batteries around is the only way to get the balance any different. What is the big deal about building a battery a little differnent I have to say I am glad I did not buy a chassis from him. I am now getting off my soapbox, flame away.

I did not see this response while I was typing mine. Good to see you sitting back and taking another look.

actually,my chassis kit was really pretty difficult.i managed to find the right placement and most efficient placement for the batteries and accomplished efficient bracing for the car.as i stated in earlier post,i didnt try to reinvent the wheel,just make it better.i did alot of testing on pro engineer software and place everything where in needed to be.the tc3 is an excelent car,i just tried to make it better.
