What will it take for us to get you back into manufacturing for us Jason . your manufacturing has always been top notch

Im still driving my BMI TC4 and a lot of people are driving tub TC4's for VTA, im sure you could sell a few of your TC4 chassis (you still have your templates don't you)

And seeing that you make your own motor mount, it overcomes the problem of people not being able to get the FTTC4 motor mount.

I wouldn't mind a narrower TC4 updated for Lipo and standard and shorty packs. Call it the BMI TC4LP17.

There was a lot of change back when you were making them

I hope it's not that the class is losing interest. Pan car has always been my favorite class. 1/10 and 1/12

Does anybody know if another brand of rear pivot ball will retro-fit my DB12RR ?
I have some vertical play and I'm out of adjustment range on the pinch bolts.

I'm hoping to find a new option, but thanks for the offer.

I have the pivot assembly parts (new) and a bunch of other BMI parts if you are interested.

I thought I'd post up a couple of pics of my BMI racers.
I've been kicking but with these unique and innovative pan cars.

. I wish I never sold my BMI 12 scale , I used to run it on Long Island and on large to medium tracks that little thing was so planted and predictable . Easiest car to drive with least amount of work.

I've still got a couple of Copperhead12s and an original WGT. Occasionally take 'em both out for a spin. Tried the WGT with WGTR tires...worked well.
