IIRC, the driving was a mixture of me, Jimmy (akura2), and Tim (hotrodlocal). Tim had designed a pretty tough track for that month, but the MM450 made it around no problem.

Chris' bike still stands at the top of the heap. It's funny that AR Racing is finally now offering a kingpin steering setup for their bike. And by the looks of the Chinese RC dirt bike manufacturers, Chris' work hasn't gone unnoticed. You know what they say, Chris -- "Imitation is the sincerest...".
If I had a dollar for everytime....

Did the same thing happen to the GPV1?

That is the first time I've seen that video and it looked great taking those jumps etc, nice Lito, shame the dills couldn't see two feet in front of themselves. Great bike, unavailable.

The Chinese told me the molds would be too complicated to copy so that was one advantage we had to prevent clones. They would have to spend a lot to do it and they dont really understand it to troubleshoot it or improve it so...

The more sensible companies that have the deep pockets are not willing to take the chance. Again lack of understanding and passion for the segment I suppose.
So the tooling is sitting in China doing nothing and unprotected by the developers seems to me that you need some backing to re release without the Bu!!5h1t company tying your hands. I have two Bikes Don't run them much now don't want to break them fully blinged everybody that sees them wants one. Has the expensive bit not been done and paid for ?
