I can't use those (I should buy new turnbuckles for front and new shell for rear - too much investment)- somebody interested in buying them?
hummmmm interesting. My BMI shock towers are the same as my FK ones. You sure you had the FK shock towers before???? Did you buy the FK brand new or get it used??

I was almost thinking about it after I tried Joe B's car. It was really good, but I think I'm going to keep working on the 4 to see if I can't get it as good if not better than my 3.

I had my first run with the BMI2, the quality is great but the resultant handling was odd, we race outdoors asphalt on foam so i know there mostlikely wont be a base setup, but how about does someone have a good base setup for low bite carpet?

Battery slots for 3300 in BMItc3

Hi guys just wondering if some could give me some info on the best way to adjust the battery slots on my BMItc3 to seat 3300's properly. Mine dont sit good in the chassis at all and when i tighten the battery brace down I think it is tweeking the car? At the moment I even tried taping them in to bypass this problem. Also I'm still having problems with rear traction on this car , for anybody who remembers my posts about this problem about a month ago I have tried all your suggestions with still no real cure for the problem and it's starting to become a real bummer. I'm still running rubbers, sorex32 c med inserts now seem to be the best tyre combo so far on med to high bite ashpalt, I continue to spin the rear around on corners and for the life of me ant work out whats wrong . I've tried all forms of tyres, shock angles, springs, camber,etc. The frt is good now but the rear is too unpredictable any further help or suggestions would be great!
PS. My home track is the England Park track,Brendale Queensland Australia venue for the 2006 nitro worlds, just to let you know!
Thanks guys;Karl.

can you post your set up again so we can look at it buddy?also,if you take a small file and file the radius out of the corners of the cell slots it will drop the cells lower.when i bevel the cell slot i do it with a beveled tool that does leave a small radius in each corner.hope this helps.

Jason, do you have pics of the new top plate and the shock mounts for the BMI2? You should post it.
