MY BMI 350 Xray was dialed this weekend at DC Ultra with some of changes to my car. Very planted and a great performer.

Correction, Joe made the B in mod. It was late when I tried to type this up. Greg H. and Tim Potter were in the B also. That made 4 from BMI in that mod race.

Thanks Jon and Tim. We had a great time and hope to see you guys make it down here for the on-road nats this year. They will be at our home track (Speedline) in Oct '05.

Thanks for all the kind words guys..... The munno's, Jason, Butter....ect...........a special thanks to the munno family......they really helped me out all day long......but especially as the gap between my stock races and my mod races diminished down to having to run back to back for the main's......I think at one point Lynn was turn marshaling for me, Toni was holding a spot for me on the drivers stand, and Tony was preparing my TC-4 for the mod main......thanks guys Joe

Default BMI 350

Hey all,

Heres a pic of the car with the running changes on the BMI 350. The main chassis is 4mm narrower total and its wider under the rear arms to acoomodate moving the droop screw farther out on arm if you choose. Feeling uptravel is rock solid with this mod.

Heres a pic of the electronics. Nothing is touching-though nothng is more than 1mm apart!! The cap is soldered under the ESC and is shoe goo'd and taped to the chassis. I put two layers of electrical tape on the receiver too. Hopefully it has some shielding properties.

Ray,

Can you explain a bit more about this particular chassis? New? A mod? Available?

drx,

This is the standard BMI 350 chassis with two running changes-no extra charge. The chassis is narrower for more ground clearnace in cornering and its a little wider in the back under the rear arms to accomodate this modification that you must do yourself on the arms.

YOu dont need to do the rear droop mod-car doesnt handle any different-but for me its a convenience thing to quickly change droop between practices and not have to take the rear wheels off and get out the gauges.

Steve M and I are working with Jason on the final details of the chassis. I am sure that they will be available in the next week or two.
