Apparently you have to send in emails with some attitude asking what the hell is going on in order to get a pre-order sent out. I get a call back from Jason asking what the problem is. Seemed pretty obvious in my email when I mentioned others are getting orders sent out and ebay is selling them and my pre-order is still "pending". He was quick to tell me how the kits were received yesterday and pre-orders come first in order. Poor guy probably has to deal with all the companies screw ups. Hope they dont sell off some peoples pre-orders from that apparent glitch yesterday. Dont bother pre-ordering now TJ you get put at the end of the line, just buy the next available unit where ever its sold at your convenience. Thats just my suggestion. Im done pre-ordering from Atomik. Its bs.

RTR - 2wheelhobbies.com, amainhobbies.com, eBay or atomik-RC.com
AAR - atomik-rc or ebay

Perhaps other channels as well?

The vmx was discontinued when Venom changed name to Atomik early 2012. Atomik upgraded the vmx to the new mm450, which comes standard with e-gyro, where the vmx did not, hence all the talk about an e-gyro kit being sold in this discussion. Only places selling vmx's are ebay or some online shops maybe if they still have them in stock. Price new is not worth it unless you can find it around $200 because egyro kit is about $140. At that price you might as well get the new mm450 selling as an ARTR for $380 from 2wheelhobbies or elsewhere. $399 for mm450 rtr.

Lol, they should have done all the pre-orders first before anything, but it is good to see you will have the e-gyro soon mate & get RV back on the track

JohnnyMc… hey man, please stop beating us up.  We all at Atomik/Venom have been working really hard to support the bike and get the eGyro completed.  Last night 100 units posted to our live inventory and this morning the balance was posted.  As soon as items are available in our system they go live and available to all customers and data feeds like ebay and Amazon.  We fill all orders on a FIFO basis (first in first out).  We have enough stock to fill all backorders and receive a limited number of new orders.  We're not redirecting orders at all, that is not our style whatsoever.

All pre-orders are always taken care of first. If you pre-ordered your kit direct from us, it will be shipping your way soon. If you did not pre-order your kit, we have a limited amount in stock, first come first serve, on our Atomik site (our part 0535).  2 Wheel Hobbies, Nitro Hobbies, Bandit RC, RC Hobby Explosion, In Hobbies Ent., RC-Motorradshop.de (in Germany)  … all of these dealers and others have their orders going out to them today and tomorrow so please feel free to pre-order from them as well.

Please know that we want to get everyone an eGyro kit that wants one, but we have to take care of the customers that have already pre-ordered. I wanted to be sure we had plenty of kits in stock before I posted in the forums that they were going to be available.

Thanks for filling us in on the Latest news! Some of us haven't run our VMX's for months since the E-gyro was announced, including Johnny Mac!! Been a b--ch watching the MM guys having all the fun!

Well Johnny at least you can check on your pre-order, I went to look at mine and I no longer have an account at Venom/Atomik. I guess all the stuff I've bought direct the last few years must have been a figment of my imagination.

Just got a facebook message from Mr. Bower, company president at 9:30 pm regarding my order and account. All is still well, I just can't seem to access my account but my preorder is still on record. I am now sitting under a foot and a half of snow, so I'm in no rush for my e-gyro anymore. Oh well, I'll be ready for next summer.

Just tried to order a couple of gyros for my friend and I and seems like the limited amount available from the Atomik site have been snapped up. Tried to order through their e bay site and seems to be no shipping overseas.

You got it, left out in the dark again. John suggested 2 wheel hobbies but they seem to be on holiday at the moment. Maybe try them when they return.

Have had no joy in getting an answer from CML so can anyone enlighten me as to, apart from them, are there any other UK outlets who may be getting any E Gyro in stock or is it the case of finding someone prepared to ship to UK .
Thanks Jim

Anyone that pre-ordered their eGyro kit from us and paid with Paypal, please login to your Paypal account, find the original transaction and "re-authorize" your payment. We do not collect money from you until your product ships. Paypal only allows payments to be active for a predetermined amount of time. We have several kits here ready to ship but we need to collect payment first. Thanks guys!
