Venom GPV-1 Sliders?

Just grabbed a GPV-1 to try out but I am not into the metal sliders it comes with. What are my options for better sliders? Nylon or roller style.

I would use rollers. They were working really well for me.

I made new bar holders from old touringcar bodyposts. They were hollow and I drilled them out to 3mm inside. Now I use 3mm electricians nylon pull-wire for bars, bent square and simply pushed into the holders. It holds the body too. They're really cheap and very easy to come by.

I'm using 3mm (I think) strimmer cord. Seems to work well.

I read about this combo in the gpv-1 thread somewhere. I picked up both for mine but I have not tried it yet. Still have the stock mounts scratch bars and mounts on mine. From the looks of the stuff it should work great.

They are custom made. I made them. You can buy the ZH-201 crash bar holders and then ZH 303 rollers and make your owns. I hope it helps.

Better get the ZH-203 crash bar holders, since these have a M3 thread that fits the gpv-1 much better than the M5s on the 201 holders.
