new vid looks great. practically everything's rtr these days so it's to be expected that this is too. not to complain, this has been said a bunch already before, but it still would be nice for it to be a kit or kit option. perhaps a pro kit version down the line?

good job, patiently waiting.

Venom's facebook page has a comment that indicates a kit version is planned, but no specifics.

Cool thanks guys!
The big dirt mound early in the video is a gravel pit so its sandy and rocky and very loose. The BMX track is hard packed with a dusty loose surface and traction was very hard to come by. We didnt change settings we actually drove from one site to the next with the bikes as is and shot video. Just gives you an idea of the terrain and capabilities the VMX has.
The snow swail between parking lots is the grass green belt you see in the video. That is over 6ft deep from the upper parking lot and from the lip to the bottom we measured 22ft. We have spent a lot of time in this spot testing the bike for durability because if we are doing it we know your going to be doing that and more! This area is what we would consider the extreme end of your typical terrain that you would find around your house lets say.

If you mean the rear swing arm its a two part unit made from glass filled nylon. Its bolted together with two screws and then pivots on ball bearings and a steel shaft. Its a very tough swing arm.
