Has anyone used a 1/5th ZH bike in a US or Europe race before?

I'm not aware of them using a 1/5 ZH bike in any overseas competitive races. I have to tell you though, my 1/8 ZH bike is awesome!!!

This 1/5 ZH bike looks "the part" but I'm not aware of any review on it lately.

Looks like the ZH copy of the M3R bike made in the UK. The idea was to replicate the full size Moto3 bikes by running front tyres at both ends and running in the stock class.

The M3R has been a huge hit in the UK being able to carry a lot of corner speed and producing some really close racing. What also helps is the M3R chassis sells for less than 300 ($450)

It doesn't come with any bodywork. I believe the RG body is shown.

I'll have it in stock in a few days. It won't cost that much.
