No issues with that. You gotta get t-boned REAL hard to do something to the motor. If that happened, I think you'd have more than the motor to worry about.

The FK05 should be the same.

I've never had trouble with the Schumacher. It's got a similar design as well with the endbell hanging off the edge.

I ran my BMI TC4 last night and all I can say is WOW!!! I just ran the stock set-up and just changed the front diff to spool....man, I thought I was driving one of my hooked MY02-Ms!!! Great chassis!!! Now I am having a hard time deciding on what car to use in an upcoming big race next month

To all you guys who got the stock TC4 chassis and having problems with it, BMI TC4 is the only answer, nothing else.

cool, I've never owned a car w/ the endbell sticking out.
No harm in asking if it was a threat.

Cheers mate. Just looking around at the mo after transfering back to the TC4 from a cuda, so I'll be looking at upgrade chassis' etc to get rid of abit of this flex, and make it even faster.
Cheers

I'm getting my bmi pro4 conversion tomorrow ($75!), and I'm a little unsure on how the new chassis will effect the driving from what i'm used to from my stock pro4. I'm racing indoors on saturday.

I dunno steve - I'll try the Xray, but I'm thinking I'll stick with my RDX on the rug....or who knows, maybe i'll have them both rockin the rug. Are you using a PRS 116? I want to stop by horsham on my way home from work today and pick up a few different spurs.

All I do know though, is Jason's gonna have one rad conversion....I can't let the secrets out yet, but stay tuned for another exciting BMI product!!!!
