That first one on the rooftop, what city skyline is that in the background? And what were those things you were using for markers?

This is in Taiwan, home of the top floor.

Streetracer...

how many times faster did you upload the video on the net!

Joking..!

Wow really impressed!

I'm not capable to drive half of your speed in such a small track...

Merry Christmas!

They look very forgiving for these little Mini Moto Z's, and I would very much like to know what they are made of, because I also have a home indoor track I would like to use some of that stuff on. It looks like great stuff and easy to use! Thanks again, Dave

Looks very cool... Although once the battery has been removed from under the roller, he might be in trouble..!

Hi, long time lurker here.
Just wanted to ask if any of you guys have range issues with your moto racer. Mine loses signal beyond 5 feet! I've looked everywhere for a fix but the problem won't go away. I've changed new batteries, played at different locations, made sure the antennae don't overlap servo wires etc. ;_;

I'm about to give up here. Please help

Hi GaraKan, first post, congratulations to a new era in your life. This forum is very addictive.
You should absolutely try to re-bind your radio set before any special tricks. It's in the manual I think.

Thank you, z_dad. I did re-bind my moto 2-3 times, still the same result. This problem started after I installed my xspeed motor. I think I jumbled up the wires or something. Tried to google the original wire placements to no avail.

Hmm, this shouldn't cause that kind of trouble.
Only problem I had regarding motor installation was the cables getting pinched together after rebuild, causing the electronics to shut down every time i tried to use the throttle. This was an escalating behaviour, hardly noticable in the beginning. Separating the cables widely apart sorted that.
Since the drive motor is a brushed one, it will move the right, -or the wrong way, depending on wire "jumble", nothing else. So that's not the issue I think.
Try putting back the old motor and see if it solves the range issue. What I'm saying is that your problem could be amp-draw related (the xspeed might be faulty or something's dragging in the transmission).
Your symptoms may be confused between the power-down blackout, and a range-loss brownout. Just to be sure of the correct description of your problems.
Hope it helps.

Thanks z_dad! It did help increase my range up to 10-12 feet. Is that the norm?
