Do you have to use screws to hold the battery bar on or can you use the stock screws with body clips?

Got the chassis assembled about an hour before race signups began. Put this one together with Niftech diffs and pillow drive shafts and had to use my tired tc3 shocks as the the TRF are also not here yet. With the same setup I had on my old car this setup was on rails and so easy to drive my lines, as consistent as I can be, and was never nervous about how the car would react to input. I am so loving this car right now

BMI makes an optional battery mount to direct screw your battery hold down in place. This is the method I use.

Here are a couple photos of it on my BMI car:

LOL!!!

Well truth be known, I am not totally retired from Nitro yet! I have a deal working with Jason for a BMI G2 & NTC3 roller, as soon as I get the NTC3 I'll be back in the noisy class! And I have another G4 sitting here, one I aquired in a trade, that I may fool around with...

What is the cost of the battery bar and does it use the optional battery posts?

The material between the battery slots looks awful thin.
Have you had any breakage? I would make the battery brace a bit narrower (just my opinion) because graphite will short the battery if the bars touch.

Are you going to offer annodizing for the aluminum parts?

That titanium color chassis with blue annodized aluminum would look sweeeeeeeet!!!

Overall it's the best looking chassis I've seen. Nice job!!

the spacing between the battery slots is very strong.i actuall tested it and i tried to break them and in order to break them i had to place extreme pressure to even flex them.the screws gave out befor the slots.when it is all tied together it is next to impossible to snap them.as for the brace,i am going to test it before i release them.they lay underneath the battery bar and the strap covers most of the cell.my intension was to eliminate battery movement with minimal tension on the cells.i figured covering a large area would accomplish this.i am going to test it and if anyone is the lab rat it will be me
thanks for your input and i will let everyone know the results wether it is good or bad.its looking good so far
it is time to intensionally hit the walls and see how it holds up
thank you for the kind remarks on the chassis.i tried my best to offer what i thought the car should be.i will keep you guys posted

Yea I was worried about that too, but once you get a kit in your hands you'll see that it is a very short span which will allow it to stay rigid with-out breaking...

This chassis kit rocks, and I know at least one person sitting in the A at Cleveland with it!

Pick one up you'll be very pleased!
