Way to go Chris!!! You now have made the finest example of RC MX bikes in action video ever! You are working very hard to show the world the potential of these "E-gyro" bikes in a comeptition environment on a dried out dusty, hard pack clay track! No longer are we only able to run on the soft grassy,loamy high traction tracks of our older bikes. This is getting pretty exciting!
To bad ya don't have a cameraman to follow your bike around the track--must be fun setting up the camera angle for each section of the track and then having to "splice" them together to show a complete lap. Nice work Brother!

Good fun doing the track work, a little tedious putting the vid together though. Have I put that bit in yet? Got tonnes of footage. Lol have got a small hand camera which I'll try to get better shots again with. oh nearly fried a tyre on that surface quick smart, good thing for the bead locks.

Good weather brought me back out to play. The ground is so hard and dusty now it's ripping knobbles of the rear tyre like it's been run on tarmac.

At 40 Euros a pop for a new rider, I think Gaffa tape is well in order. I think it is the only way to get him to both flex AND stay together. I might wrap him head to foot in bandages too and call him the Egyptian Mummy.

Yeap, its expensive. What I did is to fill the rider with polyurethane foam. It's a bit heavier but it doesn't break easily.

And here's a video that I edit on my phone, from today's playing

Anderson M5 Cross Jumps in Slow Motion (0 min 56 sec)

JB do you guys have shoe goo over there? Really good for repairing/ strengthening Lexan.

Already shoo goo'd. Gaffa is like some kind of girdle. (Oooh err missus).

It holds it all together but let's the body flex, but you can get the rider to flex around the right parts, another bit of bike tuning I found out today.

If you strengthen the rider in certain places, you can influence how the bike copes with endo cartwheels. My bike pulled to the right slightly so I might tinker and see which bit needs reinforcing first. With a bit of luck, I might get him 'balanced out' so he rolls consistently. He is certainly a lot stronger.

Ha ha no worries I know about the balance bit, when I pulled a backflip with one of vinnies hands off he tried to do a 360.

Awesome video....

I found myself looking if the rider put any feet on the ground at hairpins!!!!!

So real handling, great balance in the air and nose down landings....

I want one of these bikes!!!!

But I want one with same suspension setup as yours....
