John's a great guy. I've raced with him for a while now and he's always fast, nice, and helpful.

I just received my BMI chassis in the mail today. It's drying now from sealing it.

I was AMAZED at the quality of this chassis out of the box. The battery slots are already filed, the corners are rounded pretty well. I just put a little 400 grit to the edges and sealed it.

BEAUTIFUL CHASSIS!

Blake

What email did you use to contact BMI?

Go to the website at http://www.bmiracing.com
Select the contact tab, then fill out the form and submit it. That goes to three people affiliated with BMI, someone will help you out I am sure.

I put my chassis together last week... very nice... but as a side note I thought the chassis flexed a little too much for carpet/foam racing.. I called Greg at BMI about making me a stiffer upper deck... he is a very helpful guy and sounded like he would make me anything I asked for. He also told me he has 3 mm top decks in stock so I had him send one. I just installed it and the car is very stiff now. I didnt know about the 3mm deck before I ordered the chassis kit so I thought others might not know about it either.
