eg (refering to the QRF400) ''The DIRT-BIKE bike we have coming is brushless, runs on a 3500mAh battery and has an inbuilt clutch gyro. It is also 1/8 size.

The OTO bike you have linked in your thread is a 5yr old design and lacks some very basic components which make it easier to drive, namely a gyro. It's old school.''
LOL That is funny!

The guy who wrote that doesn't know what he is talking about. Akura2 already pointed that out later in the thread.

I have a 9" X20" lathe & a 8" X 36" 3hp mill and let me tell you the cost of the machines is dwarfed by the cost of fixtures and tooling.

Don┤t try to race it below 0║C as I did. Tyre becomes hard as wood and two wheel drifting is not funny....

I love the picture with the bikes and the stone wall in the background. It is a crazy juxtaposition of modern and ancient. Is that a castle?

It┤s not a castle, they┤re the Walls of Avila, my town. The old town is completely surrounded by this "stone belt" dated from XI century.

Our track is located just about 400m north from the Walls, and we all enjoy this beautiful sight from pits.

Next time you come to Spain, make us a visit...

I found your track on google maps, that is cool.
I like the way it is painted on the lot. Do you use portable barriers to keep people in the lines or is it by honor?
Did the city paint it for you or did you do it yourself?

Google maps is being un cooperative with a good link,
If you google Avila Spain and then zoom in it is 400 meters north of the wall.
The wall surrounds a small portion of the city on the western edge.
That is how I found it.

Calle Molino del Carril
05005 ┴vila, Spain

This may help.
