Nice!! I love that track... I've seen it before... They usually race 1/18 scale cars there in a low speed spec class

So the Moto fit the bill perfectly! The speed and power is an excellent match too, its not to much and not to little. The surface is simply wall paint on a concrete floor which doesn't quite supply as much grip as the bike would like to have but its working fine. Check out http://www.facebook.com/pages/Harnoi...86782821416027 or harnoishobby.com if you want more info on the track.

I'm still trying to pay off bills before buying my own. Once a few of us get them we're going to try racing them on our 1/18 scale road course. We'll be sure to take some video :-D.

Work (real job and work for the magazine) has kept me from doing any more to my MotoRacer for now. But I'll get back to it soon. I have four batts for my two bikes ready to go...

Those don't look right (?) You can see through the rear tire. Looks fake to me (?) Plus they look too detailed for the mini z bike.

Well you have to remember, when they announced the Kyosho bike, they first showed pics of the real bike.... This is hopefully just a sign of things to come

Other things wrong with that picture: the radio shown is a KT-18, not the KT-19 that has the Moto Racer-specific functions and different 2.4GHz encoding; and Kyosho/KO has never released a goofy-handed version of the radio.

Does anyone think we will have enough people getting one of these Mini-z bikes to get a bit of competition going on??? I'm up to buy one just for that.
A few good reasons:
1) Tracks can be smaller therefore easier to find places to race
2) Simplified bikes that make the "Driver" the talent to win, not motor/esc/bike choice to dominate.
3) Mini-z bikes easy to set up and durable.
4) More good reason's to group up with other rc bikers!
