Don't the TC3 and TC4 have vertical mounting screws for their shock towers to screw into the diff case? That seems like it'd be a lot of hardware to make a CF tower for those cars.

Just to let everyone know, I'm joining the BMI team, and I'll be driving the BMi2 (once I call Jason next week and order one that is. ) Once I get the car together and get some laps in with it and some setups on it, I'll do what I can to help out anyone with questions about it. You can PM me or Email me at [email protected] with any questions you have specifically for me.

Thanks for the opportunity to drive for you Jason and I'm looking forward to representing the BMI team here in Southern California.
Welcome to the TEAM JON !!!

Welcome to the team Jon..... and Losixxxs... like Jon said the aditional weight of making aluminum adapters to fit carbon fiber shock towers makes it counterproductive in most peoples opinion.......If you really want them for looks... square racing makes them....look on speedtech's website

Default Yea....those add weight.

I wish AE would redesign the diff cases with the mount molded into the diff cases like the Pro 4. Then we could use CF shock towers. It would fix the flex issues and make it lighter. I also would like to have molded graphite diff cases.

Any thoughts on making a chassis kit for the Yokomo SD? I love this car, but to get the chassis stiff enough for carpet, you have to run the cmg conversion. It's way to heavy and doesn't look as cool as carbon fibre. I'm sure there are enough Yok's out there to make it worth while.

Welcome to the team, Jon. (Munno Graffix paint schemes always leave just enough room for a BMI sticker or two )
It's been a week since the 'birds and I've still got carpet on the brain! lol. My parents and I raced at Speedline today and I tried to shake some of those carpet fibers off of my M8 by running the TC4 today. I was still used to driving on carpet/foams as opposed to today's adventure of asphalt/rubber, but I think I've readjusted just fine now. I've gotten most of the kinks out of the TC4 and the only thing it's missing to make it a missle on the track is a BMI chassis and a better driver

This works for me:

Front shocks:
60wt oil, purple springs(yellow if the bite is up), #2 pistons
middle hole with rear tower in place
outer hole on arm

Rear shocks:
50wt oil, copper springs, #2 pistons
middle hole on tower
outer hole on arm

Camber links:
Front, upper inner on tower
rear, upper inner on tower, tc4 knuckle in outer position.
Standard steering rack with tc4 steering knuckles in outer hole.

4 degree c-hubs
F-0 in front

F block in rear and R 2+2 in back

1.5 degree's camber all around

4.5mm ride height front and rear

Droop, 7F and 5R

Batteries forward

.030 shims under front shock tower to lower the roll center.

Hope that gives ya a good head start.

Tim
