VMX Update offers Teachable Moment

I want to learn the bike. Be able to take it apart and fix whenever it breaks. But I don't want to work on it if its not a complete bike.

I thought by overpaying and communicating often with the seller he would send me a used but complete bike... don't assume TRUST, always inspect and count every screw. Upon further inspection Im missing side bar screws too?!?!? Must have vibrated those out also, cough... (hor$e$hit)!

either way, INSPECT the item very well before use. Sure I ran the bike in the grass and in some nice straightaways to get balance but not for more than 45minutes total.

I have cheapest HK charger would take several hours to charge 1 discharged lipo - instead ran for 3-5minutes gently then recharged lipo again. Until the hard bashing of the park video {sarcasm} No way 45minutes vibrate out 8+ screws, my bad for not inspecting. All this said - I sent whole bike to Venom Support! Chris Nicastro has been awesome - encouraged me to fix myself... Will update cost of fixing damage to bike due to missing or vibrated screws.
