Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I just got my new bike...
But... I went straight to work and I FORGOT to get 4 batteries for the radio... So... for now it is just a shelf queen for everyone to start asking the usual (trademarked!) questions...
You know: Will it wheelie? How much? How fast? How does it stand on ONLY two wheels?!
I got the blue Lorenzo bike, btw.
Very good-looking!

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!

Good call: surely the cheapest and very likely to be as fast & funny as the other more expensive ones

well... Greece being the smallest possible rc-bike-market in the world, it's the only one imported so far...
I know the internet and I could have bought from somewhere in the world, saving maybe 5 or 10 euros in the process, but in the end I preferred to support my LHS...
Still speaking of Greece, I hear from friends, mainly on FB, that there are 2-3 mini-z tracks around in Athens, already operating fully and that there are a few moto-racers too circling those tracks! It's getting interesting, indeed!!!
You will hear from me and my moto-racer real soon!!!

As for today, running the bike at the office, well... I rode my (real) bike to work, and the place that sells batteries is maybe 3-4 minutes drive away, and it is raining, so it's a bit of a hassle to don rainsuit, ride 3 minutes, take off rain suit etc etc... so I will get some AAA batteries on the ride home!

...and I thought Sweden was the smallest rc-bike-market...
Anyway, finally I've got one too!
I went to my LHS to buy it at a slightly higher price and I feel good about it.
So far not even one pack run...

This winter is going to be so much fun.

Look... there are about 15 rc bikes in Greece:
I own 13 of them (mini-z included!) and two of them are owned by Vegos (you will see him posting vids and pics at the Anderson M5 Cross thread!)
I DO KNOW you host rc bike races in Sweden! Come on!!!!


So, back to my mini-z motoracer, I RAN it at the office for TWO minutes!
I charged the battery and then I went to that recycle bin where we throw our used batteries... I found about a dozen used batteries for the radio... Four of them made the radio work!
For two minutes! Then they died! haha!
It was good fun to run the bike at the office floor, doors closed, of course, and anyway it was two minutes!
Now... in a couple of hours... at home! But... it's night... anyway... the bike WORKS!

The Ducati bike will be in stock in a day or two.

The Repsol Honda is stuck because of licensing problems with Honda. I should have it in 30 days or so if the licensing gets worked out.

And now some reading on tweaking and tuning this bike!
OMG... the thread is already 38 pages!!!!!
A lot of reading indeed!!!

And my previous question still stands unanswered: Has anyone tried to fit those HK batteries that are supposed to fit the mimiums and other smallish aircraft?!

the HOR is nice, but I wouldn't deem it raceworthy just yet.

1) first of all it goes so fast and is so small that you can't even see the rider move
2) it affects handling a lot. Makes it twitchier especially during switch backs

But I knew someone was going to do it.
