Has to be silicone shock fluid. I use 30 to 40 usually. I use 60 once my forks are quite worn.

My E gyro should be here tomorrow. VMX 4fitty back on the road (maybe with slicks, but maybe not) we'll make up our mind tomorrow. Now that I'll have 2 E gyro bikes running, maybe I can get my son to help me promote these off road bikes when he sees how well they work.

I have been waiting so long to order the E-Gyro for my VMX. Now that it is in stock, I can also get a good price on the new MM450 from Atomik as a dealer demo. I guess the VMX will stay on the shelf for a while longer. I am ordering the new MM 450 this week.

E gyro help

Hello to all the Rc addicts out there ! I was looking on eBay at the E- gyro kit , I live in Melbourne and the postage was over $130 is that correct .
If so it would cost around $250 to get it here . Am I missing something ? Cheers

Finally got the egyro today, so no tricks, just treats on halloween. The assembled wheel is a nice touch so thank you for that Atomik. I can check myself into VMX rehab now and just find enjoyment in the hobby again. A slow drip of egyro will hopefully bring me back to life. I see a white light, its beautiful, and something is calling me, a loud jet noise...see you guys on the other side...

Cobblers! M-gyros make you work at your riding!

I feel a right outsider here though with my M5 and M-gyro with you lot raving about E-gyros and 1/4 scale.

Stuff ya!, I'll still like to give you all a race though!

(Dear Santa, I would like an E-gyro for my M5...)

TJ, what did you use for that riding apparel?

Got my Egyro today....man...without a doubt, biggest improvement ever. No longer is it sluggish throttle and brake. Now you can pull controlled wheelies, way more punch, simply superb. The bike is much easier to drive, and it drives so much better. Its beyond night and day difference, you can actually run on a track lap after lap now. Much more realistic, thank you atomik!

Looks good TJ, have you ordered your gyro yet? My Tenshock motor turned up, just have to get a pinion and maybe a speedo. You might want to consider a Deegan as they are a lot tougher than Vinnie. Maybe TJ junior might fit. Hopefully the two gyros I ordered for a mate and I will turn up today or Monday. Then I'll have someone to bash with. hopefully it will slowly grow the numbers.

Lol,

I did a bit of recycling i used an old t-shirt it was just a test run i just glued the seams together with a hot glue gun cause i can't sew for i am going to make another set & use some printable iron on transfer sheets to decal the clothes, the boots are off a proline stunt steve i just cut vinnies feet off at the ankle & the whole lower leg goes in the boot, just trying to make him look different.
