They look great
Was wondering what the hole cut in the side of the tank was for ?

Yes, it reduces weight! And we can see servo without dismantle the tank.

It reduces weight very insignificantly - like 5 grams or something.

Why would you need to access the servo? Does it slip on you? I've had no problems as long as you use the stock servo horn and plastic geared steering servo. Then tighten the screw tight.

I'm thinkin maybe they're running direct steering... And the servo horn or linkage pokes through the tank...

Nice paint work and custom jobs there... How do the modified bodies stand up to crashes..?

I love how the old kyosho bikes are still gettin plenty of love some 15+years after they were released...

The see-through tank is not necessary in the past. Try to give the old fashion fairing a new look and make it slim at all costs.

Im not a street guy but very cool seeing racing with no crash bars and realistic rider movements. Lots of new videos at bighead's youtube channel. (Including a slow motion video from 2012 for you Steve Bisco if you hadnt seen it.) http://www.youtube.com/user/bighead1113?feature=watch

I just love to see all these bikes together and being raced like they should, just awesome....
Please show us more and tell us about all the mods you guys have done to the bikes.
I'm trying to build a hor that runs like yours and up until now i haven't driven because of the weather here, i built it with venom inserts and tires (V1).

I've tried to do the insert mod but could not find a o-ring in the right size, so i built the front tire
just like the gpv-1 insert and tire only.
