I gotta tell ya,i am getting real tired of waiting for this mysterious egyro.I showed a friend my vmx last week and he instantly ordered a new VMM.Now i get to watch my bike flip flop like a fish on hot pavement while his bike power slides and wheelies past mine.It's just getting old and i am pizzed,just like the rest of you guys.OK my rant is over,i kinda feel better now.BTW,has anyone preorderd/prepayed for their egyro conv. kit ?.I am tempted to prepay,but with due dates changing every week i am weary to do so.

Hmmm… yeah we are al waiting for the gyro kit!

Anyway, I ran my bike on the weekend, after not using it for a long time and man. I must had forgotten how noisy it is! Lol I think it’s time for a complete strip down and rebuild. I need to do the front forks anyway. I saw a good how to for that on rcdirtbikeaction.com. Just have to find the time.

Anyone around Brisbane have one of these they’d like to run somewhere sometime also?

Hey Rob see the c'mon Atomik forum says they will be available in three weeks.
Is the noise gear noise or chain noise? If its gear, the pinion is probably toast being soft brass. If you change to a steel one and change the spur it should reduce the noise considerably. I recommend a 12 or 13 with the new gyro. Maybe 11 in really tight spots. Duratrax do a steel 12 if you can't find one. I use 13 mostly always now. If its chain noise just use some wax type chain lube. I use Bellray super clean stuff. Hope you find some time. if the forks are leaking I recommend changing the seals and bushings and feel for any slop in the shafts and if so replace the pistons also. Follow the how to on www.rcdirtbikeaction.com and you should be happy with the results.

ran 4 2s 5200 through the egyro vmx yesterday, still relatively new to bikes but its amazing! An experienced driver could easily turn and drive in a driveway, very stable and powerful.

crazy stable at slow speeds no more side to side on the pegs... WOT on grass with clippings very fast stays up the whole time! kinda loud but not really once you take outside and open her up! Of all my rc this one gets the most attention at the park

Thank You Venom/Atomik/Chris Nicastro/Paul@support! Anyone involved with sending me this awesome upgrade. ...wasn't expecting bike anytime soon, egyro/parts/fix and shipping were ALL Done free of charge! Pays off to be patient and humble, Thank you again Venom/Atomik/Chris N.!

More packs today hopefully with video if I can do egyro justice... awesome powerful awesome stable rc motorcycle!
