Haha, yes, I don't drive around with brick in my car too. Usually we just leave it beside the track. BTW: I had start using brick, iron, roadside (curbe, sorry not sure what to call it), fance at the side of the track, etc. It is not easy. But practice more and you should be able to do it from almost anything that can keep the bike upright. For the body protector it is made by water bottle. Use a heat gun to soften it and form it around the orginal body. And we run atleast once per week if it doesn't rain outside. Let us know if you happen to be in HK and we can run together.

Yes, I can't think of another RC car which do not have any changes for atleast 15 years and peoples are still buying it. It is like the VW Beetle for RC.

I run a 7700kv in my Yamaha and a 5500kv in my alloy framed Suzuki, Suzuki has good traction and is a joy to drive maybe because of the weight of the metal frame, the Yamaha is 100% wheelspin with the 7700kv but fun

Well here is a little vid of my alloy framed Suzuki with a set of Pats front disc brakes, it stops so well now with no more crashes under braking because of rear wheel lock ups ! the bike is running well but suffers from tank slapers, (wheel wobble ) under hard power and running over bumps, have to tighten steering damper down so hard it loses the slow speed handling, found its better with the front axle slightly loose , can anybody help here ? I am going to try a set of the standard plastic front shocks to see if it make any diffrence
Thanks

this at JV? I have a HOR in bits and wonder what I will need to get it up and running again. Will I need to modify the steering or use the stock one? I mean instead of the swing action change it to more like the real bikes. Thanks.
