The BMI cars of all sorts were a well represented in the A and B and C and even D-mains up and down Sedan and 12th scale.

Jason-you should be very proud of all your drivers and customers who attended this race.

Some highlites:

Mo Denton Wins the most competitive Stock Touring events I have ever been a part of.

In the top 30 in Stock sedan were (and there could be even more)

Aaron Buran A-main
Paul Ciccarello A-Main
Mo Denton A-Main (WINNER)
Brian Rice B-Main
Eli Ezrow B-Main (Fastest lap in Mains 14.715)
Eric Anderson B-Main (tied Fastest Lap in Mains 14.715)
Jim Herrmann C-Main (lead most of race)
Ray Huang C-Main
Billy Sydor C-main

And in 12th scale-these guys all wheeled BMI equipped rides to perfection!!

Paul Ciccarello A-main
Wayne Gerber Jr. A-Main
Dave Morrow A-Main
Ray Huang B-Main (Winner)
Brian Rice B-main
Eric Jones B-main
Billy Sydor C-main

and I know I left lots of guys out-so please shout out more names.

GREAT job everyone!! And some guys had fast runs come to an end due to Traffic related accidents-like myself and Michael Abraira!!!

Ray

Default interested in joining club BMI

Hi I am becoming greatly interested in a BMI chassis set up for my xray raycer and I wonder if anyone can tell me if the best place to get some information on specific questions is to use the "contact us" link on the BMI site or to PM the owner on this site?

Also I am torn about wheather I want the split chassis or the 350 chasis now that I read over the thred. But I cant help but consider getting the xray evo/fk chasis that is able to run both set-ups. Or would it be smarter to get both the chassis. I would rather not spend money on two chassis.

And now that I talk about money, how much would it be for a full chassis set up? Chassis, top deck, shock towers and battery braces?


thanks for your help. Mike

scmicromike:

Hi,

I have both the "350" chassis and the .125 chassis (both saddle pack chassis) and have found both to be great chassis on carpet. I have not ran the staggered cell chassis that was made for certain team drivers to try. I think it depends on your driving style, class your running (stock or mod) and track layout.
Try PM'ing Brian MsGreeve about the the staggered cell chasis as I think he ran one for a while.

Soviet:

Hi,
welcome back. I was wondering where you were hiding. the TC4 chassis will be out as soon as I can get two to build and send to Jason.


Congrats to all the B.M.I. drivers who ran and won at the Gate. to bad we were'nt able to attend. work has me on a short leash as daily numbers are going up.......alot. and another customer is in the near future

Rob:

Hi,

Will we see you at Cleveland this Thanksgiving???? we will be there either way.

Jason:

Hi,

I might be needing another Xray 350 chassis soon hopefully in satin/stealth. hope to be calling Monday am if I'm up and home.


Thanks

just got back from cleveland and man everywhere i looked there was a BMI car. most of my bad luck this weekend was because i kept messing up. i just couldnt think straight, plus my two handout motors where duds. when i finally woke up and put a good setup on my car everything was done and i got 2nd in the f after parking it in a chicane. very rough weekend for me. well there is always the indoor champs.

well one of the reasons is that it has such a big parts support program. Every hobby shop and track has tc3 parts and push that car. Why you ask ?? becuase it breaks so easy and therefore they sell more parts which have a high mark up. I tell ya ever since I switched To XRAY my extra parts box is pretty empty just cuz I just dont need them
