Well all I've gotta say is the staggered setup works, as does the super-stiff BMI chassis! It was very responsive and handled very well. Lots of high speed steering, on and off power. Needs a bit more low-speed exit steering, but that's the beauty of an Xray, so much you can do!.

Hey guys,
for all the people asking for pictures, there are a whole bunch of them in the Gallery part of my website, http://www.bmi-uk.tk/
The main idea for the website is to help Jason sell his kits in the UK, as there are not many of us visiting these forums regularly.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated as this is my first go at web design. Cheers

I am curious about something, how much would it be to get a chassis machined?

i am considering getting a graphite chassis for my MRC / Academy SB Sport 4wd buggy, looks like a fairly simple design and Academy does make a graphite chassis, but I would like to get one of those nice colored ones like I have on my TC3.

Any ideas on how much this would be and what all you would need to be able to do this? Most likely would want this 3mm all around, or at least 3mm on the bottom and 2mm for the top plates.

Thanks!

No ...

I had gave Jason some advice on a newer lower style Pro4 front shock tower that will clear most of the bodys that are out on the market today..... most of the guys in Japan are running the rear tower on the front but Square also makes one that is a bit lower too.... I was just wondering if He had a picture yet,.... because I think that he just finished it last week

I got a question.

I see the BMI TC3 chassis has the option for nerf wings. Is it possible to encorporate (spelling??) these in the other chassis? I am currently building my new Pro4, and I am looking for upgrading the chassis (I am a bit of a tech addict).

I really would like to know if the BMI Pro4 chassis has the possibility of having nerf wings attached. Also, does it come in the colors the TC3 chassis comes in (black, blue, titanium, black, red)?
