bmi - seeing your chassis has made me rethink my next touring car... i like it that much. i've got no issue with molded, other than i like eye candy, ie graphite.

building on the above post, i was thinking the exact same thing on the upper deck size/bulk. perhaps even some x-lattice cutouts that leave the torsional rigidity mostly in place, but keep things as slim as possible. if it doesn't make it to production, would/could you custom fab one for a relatively reasonable price?

also, looking for ETA on when we should be able to purchase this, as well as a pic of the center/idler shaft support.


btw dave, it's SWEET, not sweat

i try not to do too much milling partially through the chassis on my kits because it can warp the chassis when done excessively.

here is a top view of the chassis

What ever your thinking just keep thinking it Jason. All your stuff seems to end up ballistic. Going to race the B-Mi-2 again on new years. Getting ready for the Novak race. This race gets bigger every year.

Default Thanks Jason...

I'll consider one when I get a Pro 4.

TC4 chassis looking good. Some pre-drilled holes for a fan would be great. Chassis rigity is more important than weight for me. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think most get an after market chassis for the extra stiffness on carpet. Maybe also for some bling factor.

Default How to get a reply from BMI?

Hey guys, I hear that BMI has great customer service. but I need to know what the best way to reach them is. I have some money burning a hole in my pocket, and a race to win on sunday and I cant seem to get a response as to how to place a order and what colors of CF are available right now, and price of complete package.

Just to clear things up, this is not in any way bashing, or speaking badly of BMI or their customer service, I just need some info, and to spend some money.

Thanks, Mike

Jason please respond to my PM. thanks

Mike, the best way to contact is the telephone, where a beautiful lady will answer the phone and take care of all your needs. Or maybe Jason will answer I guess thet woud be ok too.
