hey jason, the stiffer graphite along with getting the motor where it belongs really helped the car alot..... car is alot better now when entering and apexing slow turns at the end of a high speed section, such as a hairpin at the end of the straightaway, also the car seems much more stable through extremely fast corners such as a sweeper. keep up the good work

Hey guys just wanted to check in...The team is doing well...Tim Potter has been steadily lowering his laptimes and is only a good motor away from some killer laps. I've been fortunate to have a good car and some good power and have done well so far...there are sooo many fast guys here it is amazing!!

GO TEAM BMI!!!!!!

Default BMI PRO4

Hey guys,

I recently made up my mind to run my BMI pro4 for asphalt. But since the chassis is so stiff, I was wondering if this is a bad idea, I know it is not impossible to do this, but i haven't heard anything about people running a thick 3mm pro4 on asphalt yet. PLEASE help me out guys.

Running the thicker chassis on asphalt will make the car more sensitive to subtle things in the suspension. A car with a stiffer chassis will carry more corner speed with the proper setup than a car that feels the same with a thinner chassis.
