Just got my new VMX MM Degan model and all I can say is WOW! This thing is unreal. the new gyro is just what it needed. I am so glad I kept my VMX, It looks very easy to add the rear wheel and electronic gyro. Until then my new Degan is ROOSTING! I got a solid 18minutes of JOY first time out on a Venom 5800 70c This thing is sick! I think I like the wheelie action but might try to calm it down with expo on the radio.
Nice work Atomic/Venom. Develop the platform and now make it better and better, STOKED!

Sweet! Post some pics and vids when you can!

Also you can loosen the slipper clutch nut a tiny bit at a time until you get the feel and performance your looking for.

Where are you located?

I labeled them with your names so I hope he sent you the right set! LOL He probly inspected them all and sent you the other set! LOL (JK) The lighter gold set are yours Kurtis. Let me know what you guys think. I checked them before we shipped them and I cleaned and adjusted the pairs. I didnt open them back up so right now I dont remember what I did to them but I did use them in Vegas and around here. Ive worked on so many forks its a blur!

Enjoy!

I know what I typically do to tune them I just dont recall what all I did on those particular pairs. Its really hard to get them to be produced equal to what I tune them so it really pays off if you want them to work better than stock to blue print them for best performance.

Someday either someone or myself will design the ultimate RC forks. At this scale and performance requirements its very hard to get them to do it all and be reliable and strong. Your dealing with micro hydraulics and very high loads all at once.

These are used by me during photo shoots and in the desert for testing and video so they are tuned up. I think your set has slightly thicker oil for big jumps and Deens was just smoother with 25wt oil. I only built a few sets of these so they were just my personal use forks for reliability and consistency.
