Now on my bmi tc3 it seems I need to put 1 1/2 turns more in the right side of the car to get 5 mm on all 4 corners. Is this something with a flat chassie compared to a tub?
Don't worry, I noticed that when I switched back to the tub-chassis from a plate chassis

John...I would re-build all the shocks to make sure their rebounding the same...and shuffel them around...also get new springs or at least switch the old ones around to the other side to see if it has any effect.....All of my BMI chassis cars have the "near" same position on the shock collar.....with uniform ride height and zero tweak..............Joe B

Jason, I'm sending you my cleaning bill in the mail. When I opened the UPS box this afternoon I CRAPPED myself in excitement when I saw that spankin' new blue BMI TC3 Chassis! This thing is beautiful! Keep up the good work, it's a really great quality product. Now I just need to race it. I'll give you my impressions.

Any new developments with the XRay chassis?

Give me a shout about when I might be able to get my hands on a Satin black XRay kit Jason.
