Check it out...

Jay - Do you have one of those yet and tried it out? I've had one for quite a while and it's a great tuning aid and very innovated as Jason's designs always are. It's great for ourdoor asphalt racing

Default Ride Height

I recently switched my FT graphite chassis to the BMI and have a question. Does the ride height setting change from this switch? I used to have it dialed before but now it seems to be way off and I can't seem to get the front dialed without having the collars all the way up? Any tips?

Ensure that the spring retainers on the shocks are properly seated. If not, they will mess up your settings. And yes, you will have to redo all your settings because the BMI chassis thickness is different than the Xray stock chassis.

Are you able to get the correct ride height? Usually 4-5 mm. The chassis shouldnt make a difference in ride height its usually the lowest your track will allow. The BMI chassis makes it alot easier to set, due to the perfectly flat surface you have to measure off of. If you cannot get enough adjustment you can use spacers under your front shock tower. I have .030 shims under my towers to change the roll centers. And always make sure to have your shocks the exact same length. Also set ride height with the droop screws backed off I alwayse set droop last. It could also be possible you just need a new setup. The BMI chassis is so stiff that your setup might not work the same. What class are you running?

there should be no change in ride height with your car.it is using the same suspension components.the only thing that may change slightly is the droop which can easily be adjusted.i run rubber tires and can run the ride height down to less than 1mm.i would double check everything and see if anything is bound up.if this still occurs,feel free to call me at 352-544-0463 and we can troubleshoot further.

hope this helps,
jason

Yes, it's a TC3 kit not the X-ray. I just remembered that I also switched a rear shock tower up front when I switched the suspension over to the BMI chassis. I'm guessing this is what threw off my previous set up. I'm running stock class and was trying to get a 4/5 ride height.

I'm still trying to figure what other adjustments I need to make with the rear shock tower up front. I tried searching the TC3 thread for more info on this. Does anyone here have any more suggestions?
