Kurtis: I've been using the ProPeak-branded version of that Imax B6AC for a couple of months now, and it has been working well so far. It's a great charger for the price.

Oh, and definitely don't go charging your batts at 15A if you want them to last.

I have the ProPeak Sigma II, and it looks to be about 57 GBP, maybe because of the brand. Same layout, same screens, same ports on both sides.

Yes, the front sprocket in the Microdrive set is made for the slotted layshaft. It cannot be used with the set-screw one.

It's available now at 2Wheelhobbies.com for $43.99, and comes with a gold, silver, or red rear sprocket. 2Wheelhobbies also has the pinned layshaft in stock ($4.79).

Hey guys

I've just become interested in the Venom VMX. However, I see that it has been discontinued by Venom. There are still lots of units NIB for sale on evil bay. What I am wondering is whether I If I were to purchase one would replacement parts be an issue. Just looking for some feedback from those in the know.
Thanks

Hi there, it may be discontinued but how ever i do not know the reasonthat could is because they are bringing out the new brian deegan MM450 with the new E-gyro,

and yes parts are still available for the vmx 450,
http://www.venom-group.com/Store/VMX-450-RTR-Dirtbike
http://2wheelhobbies.com/index.php?cPath=22_73

and soon the E-gyro will be out to put straight into the vmx 450.

Hi Chris.

Options will be looked at, as things are fairly sparse around here. (All church hall 1/10 touring cars around here and they don't have one single flicker of interest in bikes). With this many old RAF bases around me (in the heart of WW2 bomber country), you'd think there would be stacks of on road and off road tracks. The reverse is the reality
