The crash was caused when I was racing in a parking lot with a friend with the same bike.. I got the front wheel caught in a hole (someone removed the cover to a pipe valve) that I didn't see.. ripped the front end off the bike and the bike kept going.. didn't even realize it till I saw the bike riding very low in the front and had no steering.. then it dug in after about 50 feet and cartwheeled causing most of the damage. .other than to the front... was funny after the fact, but cost a large chunk of change to fix.. the battery alone was expensive.. Lipo's after denting the sides in are worthless...

Yes sir!!!!!!!!!!

I actually showed him some paint schemes, so he can remove his mind from 1/10 on road shells for a moment, and the next thing I know, is him showing me the rider painted exactly like that!
And... I think this paintjob is showing at Bruce's shop, for the lexan rider of MP, right?

Stelios: Yes, I provided that image to Bruce to depict Patrick's original rider. BTW, your painter missed the clear orange visor.

I actually had Dark Identity create that paint scheme as a sort of tribute to Masami Hirosaka's on-road paint scheme.

I hope I didn't offend you?
I suggest when our riders ever meet they will look like brothers, right?!
(Except for that visor!)

LOL... well I just hope and pray it all works out with the funding like we discussed. Don't forget to email me Monday morning or afternoon and give me an update.

I'm not lookin forward to packin up those 3 bikes but I promise to do a really good job. I'm thinking I will probably box them individually and then put those 3 boxes into 1 big box but I'm not sure yet. I will add shipping insurance as well.

Stelios: No problem at all! I was just kind of shocked when I saw what (on first glance) looked to be my rider on a foreign bike. "I just saw it in my garage a few minutes ago," I actually said out loud. It's actually quite flattering.

Hey, I think we still all owe you a bit of gratitude for initally pulling together the first group of manuals on-line and for your contributions to this forum over the years.

here's my Thunder Tiger FM-1e:


Got it last month, almost mint condition. Just installed a Mamba Sidewinder 4600kv motor in it and a 5000mAh nicad pack. Using a JR XS3 Pro synthesized radio in it.

That motor just about rips the tires off the wheel, and they're glued Had to turn it down a little.

Just need to get some new tires and rebuild the rear shock (leaks).
