I thought this picture is worth it΄s own post.
Robert Kerber (GER) racing his Einibike sitting in the pits.
He is one of the coolest guys at the races. I really like him.

300th Lipo anniversary for the 2011 yesterday. The Bike is tuned in: ready for the Warmup in Lostallo.
Its also about the 1000th Lipo since Feb.2010
equals approx. two Lipos a day.
Time for some statistics:
250h of driving
7500km on the track
450.000.000 revolutions for the motors
16 Lipos ruined that gives a Lipo a lifetime of 62.5charges
80 PMT Tires worn: 45% Front and 55% Rear
15 Drivetrain Belts (500km/Belt)
4 Brake Servos (Platic gearing broke) using metal now
0 Motors used (CS-Electronic)
5 Rotors changed "getting weak"
20 Motor Bearings "sounding rough"
0 Escs burnt
0 Steering Servos smashed
8 Driver Figures "slightly" damaged
Jabber spares worth about 300 needed after crashes= "Attention on the strai*crack*ght" type of crashes.
One more thing:
Yesterday another Jabber driver nearly broke the 26sec./Lap hurdle at our home track. Congratulations!!!

They are advertised to last over 500 cycles
As well ... tyre train last only ~20 charges ... so ... making each charge quite expensive ... at around ~50 per tyre train ... each charge cost over 2 in tyres ...

I dont think anyone really has ever counted up how many charges their Lipos hold for.
Most just get old lying around.
I really take care of mine: Storage charge, conservative charging currents, never undervoltaged.
and most important: I am running them in a bike so there are much lower currents.
....further..... concerning the €2 per charge:
one charge gives you about 15min. ride time in avarage.
So one Wheelset gives you at least 6h of biking (at the speed of a Jabber ).
At a compareable level of competion:
I have been told a set of tires on a 1:10th scale car gives you not much more than three runs 5mins long....

I feel silly posting this but oh well. Im always looking for info that can educate me about this new hobby of rc bikes, street but mostly dirt bikes. Being a builder I think you probably have some good habits even though they may seem second nature to you. Im curious about the routines, note taking, or other tips you can give...
- For example, when you go to a track do you take notes while at track on settings you changed, how bike handled, lap time results of changes, and or take notes at home?
- Do you have a plan of what you want to test before going to track or not, maybe like focusing on suspension or steering that day?
- Do you keep notes organized like in a journal or spreadsheet?
- Do you keep track of bike settings for each track you go to?
- If a friend was getting into rc bikes, what sort of advice or tips would you give him?
Good luck at the worlds. Any suggestion would be appreciated thank you.

Takes care of (=setup)
feel free to ask as much as you can think of
dont give much intention about springs and oil... thats what cardrivers have to do.
