ZH 201 or 203..?
 
Hey guys... Maybe I'm just a little slow... I have had a bit of a look around but don't really understand what's goin with the two models...

The 203 is obviously the latest and greatest... Comes with , Belt drive, front brakes, slick tyres, carbon chassis, esc, motor, brake servo, everything bar the steering servo, radio and batteries... ???

The 201 is the older model that will still continue to be produced..??
Chain drive, aluminum chassis, treaded tyres, esc and motor... ???

I know the 203 is a different set up chassis wise, but I assume all the running gear is the same... ie, swingarm, forks, crashback, wheels, layshaft, brakes....

Sorry if it's a dumb set of questions, I've tried check the ZH site but can't open it... So I thought the next best place would be here...

Thanks... Luke...

The pro and cons of both "IMO"

I would love the 203 but cant afford it right now so im picking up a second hand 201 tommorrow.

The 203..
more lean angle
slicks
carbon chassis
steering head has been made bigger to accept larger bearings for the steering stem shaft
belt drive on the little bike vers the SB5 probably wont be a problem.
Same running gear yes
I think the steering will be awesome as it copies the Sb5

These are all the thoughts i have for now. But i have driven the 201 for a good amount of laps at GCR (Gulf Coast Raceway) with the 5000kv it is soooo fast and has soo much tourqe. 3/4 - full throttle it will flip the bike over no problem.

Thanks for that champ... I still can't access the page though... Seen the video, but it don't tell you much eigther...

Am I right to believe the ZH has very little in the way of set up options..? No adjustable rake, ride height or wheelbase..?

Fork rake appears to be set the same way as on the 201 or FM-1e/SF-50x bikes. Rear ride height is set via droop and optional down stop rod. And who needs to change the wheelbase?

Even if it was just equal to the 201/T-258 it would be an excellent bike.

I should be receiving my 203 today...I will report and provide some better info and pics...mail should be running around noon.

I run the old OTO think its the same T-258 I have 2 of them that I run every day, its just got to be the best 1/8 bike out there, so fast and smooth and tough, never broken anything, the only trouble is the wear rate on the chain and sprockets but still like it better than a belt drive. I notice the new bike has bigger head stock bearings this has got to be so much better than the small 8x4x3 mm ones they use now, I was using a new set every week as one crash and they would be finished and would really mess up the handling, I now use ceramic ones and they are fine. So as you say if it was just equal to the old bike it will be nice and the larger head bearings will help out the only bad designed part of the T-258, not sure about the belt set up, I have the SB5 and hate the slipping belt :mad:

#10 621clay Jan 07, 2012 02:02 PM

I wonder if the head stock will be able to fit the 201 chassis?

#11 steve bisco Jan 07, 2012 02:18 PM

Yeah would be nice, but ceramic bearings work well, and not too expensive :)
