Get the chassis and come find me. If I don't get some from BMI direct, i'm gonna have some made up for Vegas and since you're local, maybe I can let go of a few.

Thanks. Now it's time to tear down the car and make parts out of it to provide backup bits for the Vegas car. Fun Fun Fun.

I like it when I am accused of cheating though. I just wish that it was with a BMI motor. I offered to have the motor torn down and inspected and they backed off. They scratched their head when it still draws 12 amps at 2 volts after 4 runs.

l8r,

Tim

Default TC3 bumper

Hi guy's just a quick question. What have you guys found to be the best frt bumper on the BMItc3 with the 3mm bottom plate? It's just that I'm running the standard frt bar and it dosen't cover the frt edge of the graphite enough.
I've looked at the RPM bumper and it dosen't seen to be any deeper over the frt of the chassis. At the moment I've been running a peice of lexan from the bumper to the chassis as a scrub plate , but it gets annoying when you have to do droop/rideheight settings. It's just that dont want to split the graphite.
I run on outdoor ashphalt tracks that can be a bit rough. I have also filed the edges on the whole car. Any advice would be great Bye for now

RS911:

Hi,

Both Tim Stamper and myself run the RPM bumper with good luck. Tim does run more outdoors than I do. but I know he doesn't have any problems.
when filing the edges og your chassis do you bevel them??????? this might help with clearance and the blend into the front bumper. just use CA glue to seal the sanded edges.

Marshal............who's Marshal.........Tim do you know a Marshal?????????? I think he's lost........... to much of the 2 stoke exhaust this summer

Thanks

tc4 chassis are now 3mm lowere and upper plates.

motor mounts are running in the machine and are really coming out nice.i made a few minor changes which will make it lighter than the prototype.prototype was already 1/2 the weight of the stock mount.
