Default BMI TC3 Oval Setup

Carpet season is almost over and I plan to run my BMI/TC3 at a local concrete oval track. 50' straights with a 9degree banking. Does anyone have a starting place for a chassis/shock setup?

Thats race ready (all the bits for a race ready car in a tub on the scales along with the chassis and shell).

Only thing that wasn't included was a pair of fans and the antenna tube, however the bodyclips were there .

I can't claim this to be 100% accurate as it was done on the mrs kitchen scales, but I will hopefully be checking on some digital scales in a couple of days for a more accurate reading.

On sunday I added 10g onto my graphite tub to get it over the 1500g mark, final unweighted weigh in was about 1496g so the BMI has shaved off about 45-50g more.


How does this compare to the race ready weights of the Xray's etc...?

Hey Jason. How is the latest project coming? You should post pics, or are you not ready for the flood of orders.

i know those shock towers are still in testing, but if you do relase them how you u make sure each side is set the same since the shocks slide at a angle left and right and the camber slides up and down and can be moved left and right? would you just messure each side with a calipers, or are there little notchs in the tower that we are not able to see?

there are little locator lines in the around the slots if you look closely.they are very simple to line up being that every 2 degrees is a locator line.
