this link will show you how to seal the edges of your chassis. Your setups will change a little depending on your driving style, but nothing thats typical. Of course things are going to change when your going that much faster.
Great link. Now I realize what I am doing wrong.

Hey guys,
I sent an email to BMI the other evening asking when the HPI chassis might be available to the general public. I didn't get a reply. I just looked through the last couple of pages and didn't see anything on it either.

I'm sure that the guy who runs the show there is an incredibly busy guy, and I didn't want to bother him by continuously sending him emails, so I thought I'd ask my question here. I know some of you have had a chassis for the Pro4 for a while now, and I also know that, as I understand things, he's also waiting for a shipment of graphite sheets to come in so that he can start milling.

Can anybody let the "rest of us" know when the Pro4 chassis might be available to the general public for purchase? Should I place a pre-order for one now? Is the Pro4 chassis still in the testing phase?
I bet he can get them cut this week. I would put an ortder in with him. Call him-thats your best bet!!

I have a setup question. I have the BMI/Tc3 and the rear wheels hop in the high speed turns. I have the 2mm top plate and I'm running #2 pistons w/ 40wt oil all the way around. Any input would be apreciated.

Also, who makes carbon fiber shock towers for the TC3?

Chill Will you could look to see if one of your hinge pins in ther rear are bent also if you have well used tires you could try some new ones....wheel chattering is supposedly caused by overdampening and they say to try lighter oil....i would look at the pins first though...hope this helps

When you say hop up, do you mean that the rear inside wheel lifts from the ground? If so check your droop.

ON the gird were 2,3, 4, 5th and 6th position-all BMI cars!! 6th place just got his car on Thursday. Then in Novice both cars were BMi's. I didnt do too hot-but I set the fastest lap of the day with a BM Pro4.

You should open a franchise in Cleveland, Ohio!!!
