Just ordered my BMI X-Ray chassis
Can't wait to get it and run it. Can't let Lightspeed-Dom get away from me this season!

What can you tell me about the BMI X-ray shock towers?

Damn it Steve! I thought I'll be the only one special! What color did you get?

I'll be down with my gold BMI XRAY tomorrow. You've got to hook me up on carpet setup.

What can you tell me about the BMI X-ray shock towers?
IN the front-the tower is just a hair taller than the Carpet shock tower from Xray, but the holes are moved up on the tower so ou can runner taller foam tires and still mount the body low. The shock holes are just a half hole more vertical.

IN the back-the tower is a lower CG version of the Xray FK tower and holes again are a hair more vertical.

Ummm-I think thats it-oh-they are 3mm thick.

Ray,

I have BMI front and rear shock towers on my other XRAY as well, I can agree everything on the front, the rear body mounts are wider too, but don't think mine is wide enough to cut a seperate holes in the body. Did BMI make 2 versions of the rear shock towers?

I'm also thinking the class will require us to run rubber tires, so stock towers would work better???

thanks,
Dom

Billy uses both the BMI shock towers. He is running 57mm tall foams and has no problems. Not to mention his car is wicked fast and I mean wicked fast.!

By the way give him a call, he is in Cincci right know racing boats.
