BMI seems to have more colors than most I have seen and their chassis material is top notch graphite compared to some. I think Jason went over the graphites available and he is using the top of the line stuff for his chassis's. His stuff speaks for itself.

It has a pretty bad tweak and the holes are not countersunk enough and the top deck is to thin. But even with these two problems the car is a rocket. With the ability to know make it stiffer means it will be even more of a rocket.

RBLove, with the BMI kit do I still need to use the center brace?

Later,

The stock chassis is not stiff enough for carpet racing. You cannot get it too stiff for the rug.

Why did you even ask then? Let's say the stock chassis is stiff enough, here are a few advantages...

1. The BMI chassis will not warp. Stock does and all these top guys have access to the cream of the crop and can change them every week.

2. Look at every stock chassis in the show. All have had work done to them. Batteries moved in, lowered, etc.. BMI is already done!

3. The stock motor clamp sucks! BMI takes care of it.

4. Looks cool as heck.

So 45.00 for a new one that will need replaced every few months or 119.00 for a new trick one? Hmm..

Thanx, thats all i wanted to know. The ONLY problem ive ever experience with the stock one is the motor mount warpage. But only once. Wasnt trying to be antagonistic, just thought saying the stock chassis "isnt good for carpet racing" was a little in-accurate.

how thick is the BMI chassis versus the warp speed?
