That would be awesome .

Last night at my LHS, www.fanatix.gr I was with the Greek 1/10 electric TC Champion Nick Georgiadis, showed him the bike, he wanted a run... here we go:

Kyosho Mini-Z Moto Racer bike fun! (3 min 12 sec)


Now, I'm talking him into trying the 1/5 bikes, too!!!!

ya know...these kyosho Mini-z bikes are astoundingly stable. I'm surprised we don't have more people interested and purchasing.

And the slipperier the surface, the better they drift! And they do drifts that the 1/5 on orad bikes can't even dream of (ok, the motocross-turned-supermotos do them, too!)
However, as you can see in this video, the bike "catches" on the tiles! Pity, isn't it!?!! haha
My friend who's driving above, it's the second time he drives this bike. but, as I said, he's TC Champion, so he gets it very quickly!

Thats exactly my thought.... these little bikes actually do things my 1/5 can't dream of (because of the Mini-z's rear tire gyro) I can't wait to get one.

Its only 200 bucks!!!! Man, that really is expensive actually.

ONE of the reasons I don't currently have one, but when the bike comes available "I" want I may have to pull the trigger.

love bike but

hard to drive well - track videos make it look super easy and smooth I have new appreciation for driver skills. My front wheel wobbles when off ground; gap between wire and oval hole, not sure if it effects ride... need bigger space to drive: clean floors, tight carpet, trim and practice.

Hello,

You ride on the track?

If so you must scrape tires

Hi Street, What do you mean "scrape" the tires? I ride on carpet and I'm still getting chatter (I think caused by the front tire side slipping) thru the turns and a little wheel spin (rear) too.

Rub with sandpaper
Remove a spring in the front fork
Reduce the travel of the fork
Reduce the play in the front wheel
You can put the battery in the driver!and the equivalent in weight to the side

Good tips! Have you experimented with a softer rear spring yet? Lito mentioned rear sag earlier in his set up. I'm not getting any sag with the spring that's in my bike no matter where I set the ride height screw. (maybe he was talking about ride height rather than sag). Lito? Also I noticed my ride height screw wedges into a filet (casted in gusset) in the top of the swing arm, does your ride height screw, screw directly onto the flat part of the swing arm? Thanks for the tips!

EDit: 1S brushed drive/brushless gyro nano bike, pretty cool. Easy fun 2 wheeled living room action. Not terribly fast but quick enough for its size. bl drive would have been cool...
