Call it 70F or 21C, it's still a pleasant SoCal Winter day.

i hope in the future the tyre will be an item to simply forget about and just take it out of the bag, use it, and throw it into the bin after using it for some 50 charges.
Hi Clark, Nice to see you in this column :-) So do you now make tyres for the SB5 (and other bikes)?

hi markus,

you are biking as well ?

well as for now we "just" do the gluing but you never know if their might be a roadies bike tyre in the future

we glue the pmt tyres on thunder tiger rims, so if you like to use them, you need an sb5 bike or adapters for their rims.

Battery question for those using Nosram batteries!
I got two new 6200/65C "Big Mama's" or whatever, for use in the bike and my Touring Car... (I have to... defend my 2011 Greek RCGT Title, plus they were offered at 67 apiece for only two days! It was a Valentine's offer!!! Fewer flowers for the Missus but dont tell her, please!)
However... I realized they have those "tabs" on one side (bottom for TC's) which are nice for the TC but cannot get into the SB5 battery space...
So, what do you guys do, just dremel the tabs carefully on one side?!

Just dremel ... me and a dremel means: not so carefully... dont forget that it will be troublesome to maintain guarantee in case of a problem...

There are a couple of useful AND bling parts, we've seen in prototype form, in recent Worlds and other races, but not yet in production...
However... there's been this pic, probably scanned from manual or similar.
Where can one obtain some of these, in particular the scratchbar holders!

Hey guys,

You will be running without crashbars soon, so do not waste your time on alloy supports for them

To be serious, why are you asking for th part made from alloy. Do themplastik one fail too often ?
