Took me all night to figure out how to set up the battery packs to get them in and out of the car but I think I got it. Have a few more parts to add to the car and then I will post some pics later. Great job Jason. BTW you have any stickers forsale.
Pics?

Thanks

Jon

hey-I resemble that comment!! My BMI Tc3 is still around-in fact I know who owns it and who last drove it. That was one fast and good handling car. Not a bit of slop in any suspension piece and a super free drivetrain-that was meshed pretty tight too. I loved that car-why did I sell [email protected]?!?*

But-in my sorry defense-I have been driving the BMI Xrays for a long time now. At least 8 months-thats long isnt it??

BTW-Lynn-did my shells show up yesterday?

Man, there's going to be too many BMI Xray's at DC for the ORL. I won't have any advantage there anymore.

I remember last year, I was the only one. It made me feel special....darn you Jason for getting so popular. LOL

John

Jason,

Holy cow!! The BMI Xray looks killer. I installed it tonight. The rear droop settings feel rock solid now!! I'll post a pic tomorrow.

Thank you for the super fast shpping-now I get to test this car for a few days pre-champs!!

Ray

How close are we to having the B-Mi-2 done. I just bought a used Mi2 and it just seems wrong having a P-Dub chassis on my car. Plus whenever I look at that crusty rear body mount all I want to do is take it off and smash it with a hammer.

Default BMI Xray

Hey all,

I drilled new holes in my arms for wider droop screws. MY rear droop is rock solid now. Very nice for setting uptravel with wheels on. Jason said this will be a running chnage on the BMI XRays now so if you want to do this mod too-its stupid easy to do. I actually spaced the new holes too far out-but it is perfectly fine. I left the original droop screws in to retain rigidity in the arm since the two holes were right next to each other.

I dont know-he might have already run all the chassis before getting to this one. After he cut this one he liked it nad said this will be a running change.

Yang-if you get this one-keep the new set screw as close to the original as possible.
Within 1mm sould do it. As you can see I was more like 1.5 to 2mm away.

The rear spring is in a state of flux. Its varies from Blue to dk. blue to violet-I have not settled on whats best yet.

Set-up is the same in back, but stiffer spring/oil/sway bar up front. Keeps front from digging in with all that extra weight up front. For sure what works on the 350 is not as fast on the Split. I have heard the split is better in mod than stock. But I am happy with it in stock now too.
