I didn't have to trim anything but it is fairly close but it spins fine and no rubbing.

Here's my BMI Xray FK05 TeamGP v1 with my own modified front shock tower and original rear shock tower. I plan on testing the car without changes to the shock towers first in order to get a better sense of how the new chassis changes the handling with the same setup I've been using until now.

Notes:
* I created my own motor guard (with adjustable motor mount screw hole ) & fan mount out of a beat up original FK chassis. I know the zip ties on the fan might be tacky, but I'd rather avoid better looking screws and keep the weight down way up there in the air.
* I prefer to use the older T1 ball cups for the outer camber links, since the newer screw in pivot ball link does not allow enough arm up travel for my liking.
* Re-wiring everything neatly took a little while. But it was needed since I had to shave as much weight as possible off the left side due to the right side being a good deal heavier with the lighter 3300's I currently use. Even with a 56g servo, 11 gram receiver, 2g 2" mast, & QC2 ESC without shotky. I ended up having to add 20g weights to right rear and moving the PT to the right front where it is zip tied to the back of the right front bulkhead while standing verticle. I've raced with it mounted here previously with the original FK05 chassis and it worked fine.
* I use counter sunk 3mm washers under almost all of the top deck screws to stiffen the chassis up even more. Of course you may notice that I'm missing one of the right rear bulkhead screws. Its not entirely missing. Part of it is fused to the bulkhead down in the hole there.
* I prefer to use pole connectors for the batt and motor and preserve pit space, skin & other vulnerable items from accidents when using of a soldering iron one minute before a race.
* I use 1mm spacers inside the wheel hexes to widen the rear track. In order to avoid stripping the inside of the hex hubs (been there) when running mod motors, I have to use 15mm long screws with 3mm hex head for the rear wheels.
* Don't be confused by the white/yellow springs for a carpet car. They are associated 40lb & 35lb springs.
* Gotta luv the look (and if your man enough to try them, the handling) of the Jaco Nitro Shoes.

How come the battery strap is on an angle with the BMI Chassis. Is it drilled wrong or do they have there ownstrap that is suppose to be used? And how come a stiff chassis and top brace (with extra standoffs) for a car with rubber tires? The car looks good though.
