i am new to the 2 wheel RC

Ill probably go with the vmx as I'm very impatient & iv seen the bike for 350 without all the charger and batterys in the UK alltogether in the UK it'll be 550, but as im going to be getting it from a US shop i can get everything i need plus parts for like 380,
so im saving some money i guess

plus its the new version with the metal gears. waterproof elecs.
Ill just get the E-gyro when its out

just really want some tips on what to set the slipper clutch at and what to set the gyro clutch at?
thanks guys

the clutch make is so you an hold the clutch and spin the tire without the clutch moving, and do an 1/8th turn tight, try it, nother 1/8th turn and try it till you get it how you like it, and the gyro clutch is between 2.5mm and 3.0 mm, factory has it set at 2.7, but if you get it used make sure you check it, if not you will be ok for a couple packs. ill be back on tonight to give you more tips and tell you things iv found i have to scoot to work.

From the pic of the E-Gyro Stator, it appears that there is a small channel cut along the side where the wires are. I would guess the bearing goes directly on the OD of the stator shaft so the wires are sandwiched between the shaft and the bearing. At least that's the way I designed mine to work... They do look like larger OD and ID bearings.

I don't see a hole through the rear axle for pinning the stator to prevent it from rotating. Maybe the rear "brake caliper" fits into the slot on the end of the stator?

Wires come out of the back wheel on the right side to the fake brake caliper and route along the right side of swing arm like a brake cable. The wires go along right side of frame to that empty space that is just behind the radiator cover guard piece (above engine, below steering damper). Thats where a separate GESC gyro esc will mount. That controls the motor and will get power from battery. So, theres going to have to be a splitter of the battery connector I guess. Its all in the manual thats available on the mm450 page for download.

That brake caliper, from the pic, looks like its designed to hold the stator shaft.
