What is the advantage of running wth a rear shock tower on the front?
Overall you can run a stiffer set-up and stand the shocks up more which allows for better travel.

For rubber tires it doesn't always work that well. but for foams it's excellent.

protc3 if all goes well I will try to atempt to post a picture of my new BMI chassied TC3. I have it all done already. I just need to put on the bumper brace (need a new Associated bumper foam) before that goes on. I will take some pics of my new kickass BMI TC3 in blue (is their really another color... ). Everything went together great with no problems. All things that suppose to line up do. I can't get over how nice these chassis setups look. It is so hard to wait til Saturday to run this car.

I put the rear shock tower on the front and noticed that I cannot use the outer mounting hole on the arm (using middle shock hole), I think you guys are posting a set-up basis similar to that.

I have not tried with 26mm tires but I think the wheel binds more than 2mm with 28mm's. This is with the nitro rack also with one .06 washer per ball to get a little closer to the elect. racks' ackerman.

Had to move to the inner shock hole on the arm, which stands the shocks up pretty straight. I may move the shock to the inner rear mount since the shocs are so upright.

I'll see how the rear tower on front goes this weekend.

Peace
Thanks all for the quick replies

Here's some more for you Nexus. Just got around to getting the camera out. The camera really doesn't do it justice, but this is the titanium colored kit. It's all ready to tear by John's at practice tonight Sorry about the glare.

The one and only Kevin from Rubberneck Racing (wannabee is his handle here). He makes some of the best bumpers, and truck inserts (don't break down terribly like normal foams), motor and battery boxes, etc.

Keep an eye out for some BMI goodies from him

Nice looking car. I guess I need to order the battery holddown for mine to. Titanium looks grear. Maybe I will put the blue RPM balls on the rest of my car. I didn't use the ones on the hubs because alot of times they rub on my 28mm foams from Jaco.

In the rears, I have the tops of the cups just barely shaven down to ensure no binding at all. Seems to work.

The BMI chassis looks great but I'm not too sure about the battery strap, wouldn't a thinner one be lighter and allow more air to the cells?

First.. the battery strap is no heavier, if anything it's lighter. Second, you really don't want to force any air on batteries period. There is a chemical reaction that takes place in the cells. Forcing air on the batteries can disturb the reaction causing cells to deteriorate. At the same time you don't want them to boil either (like and enclosed space). Never understood why trinity has that goofy fan in the discharge tray...
