Question
Nuova Faor SF 509 elektro standard

Hello all,

......After some years of running my 3 Ttiger's (elektro) rc bikes, I'm looking out for a some more professional bike.

...But I will stay away from the over expensive bikes.

That new Ttiger SB5 bike seems me to complicated and very tricky for set up.
So, I became interested in that NF 509 elektro standard bike. I have a brand new Mamba set to built in.

What may I expect from this bike..?? Is that SF 509 kit front fork usable??

Anyone here with experiences in relation with that SF 509elektro.

Is that NF steering damper (X260) a good one??

thanks for your help.

Belgium greetings.

the 509e is an excellent bike compared to the tte. the factory forks are very good with a few mods..they will handle high speed crashes very well without bending.i have had multiple 55+ mph flip overs, crashes, and just general bad mishaps and it has not broken any parts.( i have bent a rear rim). amazingly tough compared to an aluminum framed 68mm..i am running a novak 3.5turn with a 2s 35c lipo..the nuova faor dampener is also very good when set up right with heavy fluid and stiff springs in my opinion... go for it you will not be disappointed

The 509 std is a good kit. Very stable and durable. I think it is more stable than the 509pro kit but the pro have a little more steering. The standard front forks works ok, the damping is good but you need to refill it offen as it leaks. But as long as you have oil in them they work fine. The only mods I did on my 509 std is the x260 steering damper with hard spring, ZH racing high CG battery mount and stiffer rear spring. The x260 I think is a must have option as you really need a steering damper. Without it u will have huge head shake problem....
