Chris, on the rear tire, there is a red spacer, where exactly dose that go? The exploded view looks like it goes behind the bearing on the opisit side of the sprocket, but when I put it all together it caused the bearing to stick out and not sit flush???

Hello ..
I was looking at the Venom 1/4 VMX 450 Dirtbike to purchase.

I noticed that Towerhobbies has Discontinued them and ALL the parts.
I also noticed that Venum has Nothing on there site, describing the VMX bike.
They have it in a video on the fron website, but if you click on surface, motorcycles, you only
get the 1/8 road bike...?? I did however get to it by doing a search...Perhaps this is just Venum's goofy website??

Tower no longer stocks them, and they are out of stock on all the websites..????

Is this Bike Discontinued???
Shame if it is.....
Seems like it was Finally Just released....

FYI...
I am new to this forum, but a regular on RCuni, and FG....

Make those regular speed, then cut to slow motion during the jumps, crashes, etc. Second, theres like a 1 minute gap of black out and at first I wasnt sure if it was my computer or not lol, so clip that out when possible.

Its nice to see someone interested in getting videos out. Youve inspired me to get going on releasing vids. I got a not so exciting vid almost ready...just learning the video software as I go.

You may be able to find one discounted elsewhere. E-bay or there is a few other mailorder places. All my bikes are used with little use.

Yep, keep your eyes out. I have a new M5 MX for 90 off ebay and had a new GPV-1 for the same. Keep checking!.

If you guys are having this issue please go over your wires and plugs and be sure they are all good an tight and solid connections. If the problem persists then send in your ESC so we can see this and issue and determine if its a defect or not.

I personally don't hear about this very often at all so Im not concerned about it being a big problem across all of the ESC's but it does make it disappointing for those that have this happen. Send me the ESC, worst case it might be a cheap fix best case we replace it for free.
Ok guys, I had this problem when i got this bike, After i change the ESC blue connector plug to Dean Plug (I'm using dean plug for my venom's LiPo and VMX ESC),the problem solved... I think is not the ESC problem, is just the connector problem.

thanks for the heads up. i'll redo the plug wire and see if it makes it go away.
