Yep, I plan to use a servo tester to drive the 20A airplane esc that controls the E-gyro at the very first tests.
About wheelie bars, I´m designing a rear wheel brake system that will look like the small slider Sideways bikes feature behind rear wheel. As soon this slider touches the ground, it will push a shock damper installed in a lever that would control a disc caliper.
The system will act same way as "we all" do with our real scale bikes. As soon wheelie becomes excesive, "we all" press rear brake to reduce power going to the rear wheel....
You´ll be able to control wheelie action by changing that shock spring rate or preload.
This design is at the very first stages of developement yet, so no pics or 3D drawings can be seen by this date.
About side crash bars, only rear mount is displayed at the pics, right over main spur gear. Front mount will find its place at the final battery box (the yellow fiberglass one is just a prototype, final one will be graphite...)

I´m so curious about the MM wheels and tyres. Would you please explain the differences between those and the ARX/Quanum rear wheel I fitted on the bike?
I´ve designed this bike to use saddle lipo packs, or ARX/Quanum lipo bricks.
Thanks for the confirmation the KERS idea will work. You said you unplug gyro battery and get decent handling for about 15 seconds or so.
Just guess how a 3rd channel brake mixxed esc will work. As soon as you apply brakes to enter the slowest track section, the gyro will rev up and get the desired handling there. Enter the main straight or fast curves and gyro won´t take any power from main battery and will spin at a constant speed in order not to transfer any reaction to the front wheel.
Thank you all for your compliments and ideas.

No way to be there. And I think I need another two months or so to complete it.... And a Lotto...
