They look pretty smooth.

What is an ST-*8?

Are you running on foams with that carpet?

The bike is running with a improved Venom fork.
This is looking very sharp indeed! Bravo!

They used ZH Slick Tires. The yellow bike had a "50" tire on the front, which was too hard and caused understeering.

I ran there last year, grip is not perfect but it works pretty good. Foams would be better, but you need access to the do-nuts and something to make the profile..

The ST-8 is a bike by 2 local guys, they used the BP-8 as an inspiration, and built something bulletproof using aluminium and carbon fibre.

Well I just got this Motor/esc combo, so that's one step closer to get something rolling this spring...

It arrived in 14 days, so I'm pretty happy with that. I've had things take a month from China, but haven't dealt much with Hobbyking. So far everything is great with them. One thing though is they now have US warehouses and I keep forgetting to check that before ordering.
