do you mean the extra weight or the added complications (engine tuning etc)?
Purely because these are designed to be easy to run out of the box - and they are!!

Nitro that bad boy! I know i would have as soon as i got my hands on it and opened the box.

I got some pretty good ideas down the pike. As soon as i get over this mini/ superbike racing addiction. I'm get started and this bike is on my radar along with some custom builds.

ill prob keep my first one as a electric but measure it all up for a nitro conversion,
then hopefully get another when the price drops or if one comes up on ebay at the right price and convert it


looking forward to seing some more custom builds of yours

Mr Anderson arrived today...

Looks nice and neat.
Could do with a better proportioned rider though.

Will be taking it to the next meeting at Skipton.
Also would like the alloy forks and swing arm.

Mr Bisco, yours looks great.

Cheers,
Drew

Hi Steve,
What is the standard motor like?

I do have a spare BL, was a stand by for the ARX.

Might run it standard first, see what its like.

Got to get those alloy parts too, they finish it off well.

The anti-wheelie bar you have is really good too.

Cheers,
Drew

Drew what happend to the ARX? I was so close to buying one with the electric gyro and was waiting for you guys to set the bike up and let us know what it was like ! waited for months and nothing happend, but bought the Anderson, 224 against 800 for the ARX to be honest the Anderson in brushless form is just what I was looking for fast and great handling, on my second tire now, if you go brushless you will need that wheelie bar, a bit of carbon, nylon, piano wire, alloy, wont cut it I know I tried, that bodywork is so pricey you want to save it only run the standard motor once, too slow for me but a lot of guys seem to like it, give it a run and see what you think

After reading this thread, and your exploits...
Decided to get the Anderson.

The ARX is ready to run, just not had the weather or time.

Need to sort out some sort of anti-wheelie, dont want to ruin the body work, not so soon.

Was hoping to have a run at the weekend. Will have to see what the weather does.

So what do you recommend for the wheelie bar?

Cheers,
Drew

From reading the whole thread, this is MK4...
Sounds like you had fun getting to this point and was an expensive one, with the body work being so costly.

Thanks,
Drew

Nice pics Drew, Where ever did you get that rider? Yeah I kind of got my bike a 100% reliable now (I think) , a lot of guys seem to have broken the spur gear but mines holding up well, maybe its the big jumps that break them, the hardest thing for me was to sort out the wheelie bar so went over the top with it, dont move at all now. Also keep an eye on the rear wheel bolts, they tend to come out and you lose the chain adjuster block in the swinging arm and the wheel spacer, Formby are showing steel gyro gears for the bike but none in stock yet, I still got the plastic ones in mine cant believe how they stand up to that gyro speed
