Very exciting. Just curious could you measure the triple shaft width and length for gigges to make sure it is also the same. I think the triple shaft is thicker if i remember correctly.

The factory build is about the only thing that I was not stoked about ...the lower fork bushing caps were way over torqued and sqweezed the orings so tight that they disformed and giving some stick-tion, I'm letting them set overnight loose and hope they reform some. There were several bolt that's were too lose or too tight..I like my bolts torqued lightly with threadlocker. This bike should be in kit form but there are no assembly instructions, not that any of us would need them...right? I'm also adding a few flat washers here and there on the bolt that touch the carbon plates

So its confirmed i have worked two whole days trying to get the lean angle on the 201 to match my GPV (without the spur gear touching) then i put the body on... and it gets even worse. I need to purchase a new body and try again. but so far with out the body... the bike is sweet!

Maybe its an early production run and the later bikes might have the washers, I had the same with my early oto and later bike, few things different on them. But would like the gold counter sunk washers on mine it kind of finishes the bike off nicely.

The T-258 came with a Kawada 48P 69t spur, but the one I have on now is an unbranded blue one from Bruce. I'd like to get more lean angle with a smaller one also, but haven't really looked for one yet.

This is the only reason i want to find one. It would almost be worth getting a Aftermarket company to build a metal on for me to make this happen. I think a 58 would give a noticeable clearance.

I cut out and installed the body lastnight and this thing has more than enough lean angle. the body just sqeezes to the body posts tighter to achieve max lean. it fits very well and was easy to install. the crash bars mounts on the other hand confuses me because the holes that are there for your body clips to hold the bars are drilled too far to the inside so you cant grab enough meat to make it work..i think i will drill my own holes and thread them for a grub screw.

i will post some pics of the lean angle tonight when i get home. From what i can tell you can lean over more than the usable service of the tires.

Yeah, Bruce is sending me a different pair. The only thing wrong with these is that the orings became de-formed during assembly so no big deal...just waiting on my servos to come in...still gotta paint and glue tires, not my favorite thing about building an rc bike but satisfying when done thats for sure..

What o rings do you mean ? I have asked Bruce about buying one of these bikes, but after that post I am having second thoughts, might just put the money into tires and spares for my t-258 as its running so well
