I'm sure that battery hold down is no heavier than the plastic or alum. ones for the TC3. If it is heavier it isn't really a consideration because the weight difference is so little. Also no batteries eljecting with that kiler strap on. Bigger is really better.

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...
Yeah, and third of all John is my hero!

Hey WV,
Jason has some gray BMI logo'ed bumpers that he sells for the TC3 and the NTC3...If you are looking for a plain TC3 bumper, please feel free to drop me an email [email protected], I would love to help you out. As Eric said I also do the battery boxes etc.

Thanks for the interest!

Kevin,

I didnt know you made battery boxes!!! Shoot me info ASAP!!!

I am looking for a box that fits in my Trinity bags and holds MORE batteries than the regular ones. Or maybe convert one box in my Trinity bag to all batts and motors on the bottom and I can stack my Jaco tire boxes on top!!

Ray

Default rear shock towers in front..

Ive been running one for a while now.. My car seems to handle more persise in the corners and is more perdictable.. if your shocks hit at the reatiners just use the stock ones I havent had any problems with them also if you use the stock front arms inner hole with the rear tower your ride height is limited to 5.0mm in front .. you ride height adjustment has a wider range with the rear tower in the front..and also it helps to balance out the supension front to rear of the car....If used a little more tuning is needed......my 2cents..

rokleM,

Did you "special order" that top deck? It doesn't look like the top decks on BMI's webpage.


Thanks
