I used to not care for the red chassis but you have now changed my mind. How did you un adonize everything and make it silver.

oven cleaner easy off is what i use.. my whole car is polished....

when u do it make sure u watch it... if u keep it in the oven cleaner to long it wil turn black.. after the anodising is off.. polish the stuff...

ps do not bake the parts.. just spray the easy off on... and make sure it is easy off. the cheapo brands dont work well...

Default shock towers

lazyboy,

the shock towers are from square,I got them from speedtech they"re both rear shock towers.

Burbs is right,I used easy off oven cleaner to get off the blue anodized,I still need to polish everything still.

Can you sand blast them or what do you do to polish them.

I know I've seen it here, but there's over 90 pages to look through. Can somebody tell me the price of the chassis, top deck, and shock towers for an Xray? Also, are there other graphite colors available than red, blue, silver, and black?
Thanks.

You can get titanium color and I think gold is in the works. Can also get aqua.

Well this BMI stuff really IS what it's cracked up to be. My car ran great this weekend. Just some bad luck and a little down on motor. Can't say enough about the car's handling though!

actually.. a company that makes it for alot of chassis is in it for the racer... offering major improvements for everyone not just one limited chassis....

have u gone to the website and checked out the prices????? im sure u didnt cause if u did u would see they are the cheapest conversion kit out there...

so in turn yes they make money.. but what company doesnt... and u get a better product that works... if i had a company my goal would be to make money.. duhhhh what would be the point of a business if they didnt...

im guessing u have been feeling the wrath of bmi racers lately... because if u did the reserch u would see there kit is better..

just read through the 90+ pages and see...

Whats up.. Ive been running this product from the start.. Let me tell you your right about one thing ..AND it is a fact that BMI company is always looking to improve other products that is currently on the market.. Its not a money thing but it does give racers another way to enhance there driving skills and a way to run products that do show a diffrence on the track for there applications .. So altho the money is there to support such a product the buying public (us racers) are always looking for the best !!! BMI Racing Products .......

more kits + lower prices= more money from people.theres isnt any BMI stuff around here.were old skool we use the stock chassis yet since it works no worse then aftermarket stuff...price means nothing to me.i spend it where it counts.not on looks but on performance.id just rahter see companies perfect one car rather then make tons of other ones and not study just one chassis.perfection takes time. it cant be done in one night.you should still be back on the tc3 chassis theres work to be done there

its simple.. u have never triede one cause your old school.. so how can u bash it????????

if u dont want one dont buy one there is absolutley no reason to bash it if u have no clue weather or not it works... simple as that..

no one at bmi is forcing anyone to buy the kits.. they are bought on our own free will.... so your points are usless

u dont think associated your old school chassis maker isnt in it for the money??? why havent they perfected the car yet???? they made it... wouldnt u think it would be easier for them to do then an after market company???.


this guy si just trying to get everyone all riled up...

how do u know i never tried one? just because i posted we dont run them here doesnt mean noone has ever tried any aftermarket chassis...i just think they r a waste of time till they are perfected.like i said the tc3 needs perfection yet back to step 1. im not bashing im just stating opinion this isnt old skool iraq
