that is what the foam bumper is for.the bumper brace is to keep th foam down and in place in case of impact.it is impossible to bullet proof these cars.all you can do is try your best

I was just checkin because a guy named Super Dave had made a bumper brace that i thought he had claimed that it would somehow help from breaking the front a arms. I bought two of them and I still broke a arms and i even broke both of the braces but they were made of some cheezy plastic! Yours looks a lot better, Carbon Fiber Baby!

When you hit between 35 and 40 MPH the car will take off and fly !

One of the BMI guys was over on the Xray board last week.

Any progress on a chassis design?

Default XRAY Board

There has been a couple of us over there in the last couple of weeks. I personally love the EVO2. What a quality piece of equipment. I love my BMI chassis and won't jump ship but the quality of the XRAY components is far superior to the Associated stuff on my car, IMHO.

Yeah, I know. It wasn't so much the chassis but the little things like the suspension components and the like. They looks awesome. I'm not sure how well they hold up but the sure do look pretty.
