Default Protc3...

Are the camber links going to be the same heights as the TC4? How about the chassis thickness? Will the chassis "Shim area" thickness be the same as the TC4? Just wondering. Looking forward to seeing this thing finished.

Xray BMI 350

Hi guys !

I did receive my BMI 350 chassis a couple of weeks ago, and I'm like you really impressed about Jason's craftmanship ! Great, the chassis is like art.

But I still think I will need to work on my setup ( I'm running carpet with rubber tires )it seems that I have lost a lot of turn-in / steering with the BMI chassis ? I have just tried different springs and different shock placing.

Any advice how to get more steering ? like I did have with the stock-chassis ?

Thanks !

RCknight.....the camber link mounts are the exact same height as the stock TC-4's............. the chassis on mine is 2.5mm upper deck, and 2.5mm lower....(but,feels stiff like 3mm, because of the lower top deck / shorter standoffs compared to the previous chassis)....with the chassis at this thickness.... where the shims sit, is nearly identical to the TC-4............I'll find out how she runs on the weekend

I currently have a TC3. I wanted to get a Tc4, but everyone at my local track with the exception of one guy that had the car got rid of it. The complaints they had we too much slop, the chassis has too much flex and it would not turn. I was wondering if you chassis has corrected any if not all these problems. Thanks.

Formula1fan.......to get the slop out of the TC-4.....the car just needs some teflon shims for the steering rack and a couple other spots around the castor blocks....and some plastic bag material stretched over the pillow balls before theyre pushed into the hinge pin blocks.......after doing this,mine has less slop than my TC-3's........From what you describe Im assuming your local track is carpet.......and IMO a flexible car rarely works that well on carpet...... the BMI TC-4 chassis just like the one for the TC-3 will more than take care of the flex..........

I'm not positive, but go back to your original settings and add a tiny bit of droop. Your set up with the stock chassis probably compensated for the flex. My buddy lost turn-in steering with his XRC chassis and got it back playing with just the droop. I suppose a little toe-out in front could help too.
