Hey Phil yea this machine is unreal no doubt about it. Yea his feet should last longer not fastened down I'm hoping as they seem to sit up higher as well. Love my track and also like the surface as it give a bit of slip meaning good slides and fun. Will add more in now I think to make more interesting, but won't change the fast bottom corner or the slow end as well just divert off it somewhere and add some in between.
Here's some more fun from today from next door.

Enough slow speed stuff, I've geared up to 12 tooth pinion and the bike flies and still has awesome power, doesn't overheat  and still gets good run time. The suspension handles even better with out any mech gyro and the bike feels lighter again. Some great slides jumps and wheelies.

MM450 awesome speedway style drifts, jumps and wheelies (5 min 36 sec)



Johnny this is the std 4200 kv motor. The 4800 would be insane.

Thanks TJ, the bike feels excellent on that stuff pushing hard, that's the first time I've seen footage from that view, thought it would look ok. that was the neighbors dog, likes a run with the bikes, was funny when the bike jumped towards it lol

Great Demo on the gearing changes Chris!...You showed us that up-ing the pinion from the stock 10t to either the 11t or 12t can really put Deegan in high gear!...i think that would be pretty good for flat tracking type large courses or street motos.

Exactly Phil, or open flowing style tracks. speed is great, power is still unbelievable. some more fun practicing wheelies.
MM450 wheelie practice (1 min 13 sec)

Time for a proper wheelie bar like ThrottleJockeys on his ARX I think.

Been trying the nylon bars on the grass, seems to work better allowing faster cornering, more lean angle and slide nicely over lumps of grass etc without catching or upsetting the bike at all. Only thing sometimes if the bike falls over in a certain way they collapse fully under its weight. ( like in the wheelie above ) if you let the bike come to rest on them, taking off is still ok. Also if you hit something with the bars ( like a tree ) they won't rip out.

Like this. Lol.These wheelies were just before the battery went flat. If you wheelie earlier in the run the stability is better. ( less wobble ) You can feel late in the battery the stability gets not as good. Not saying bad, but slightly noticeable to me. Oh I tested the toughness as well. Ouch por Deegans got to have a headache after this. Lol

I think Johnny said the release date is late August so not to far away now Rellik. Trust me you will enjoy. Really makes the bike completely awesome.

Also if wheelies are on your main agenda, a proper wheelie bar with a small wheel would allow better control on them. Also if you wanted to try adding more weight to the gyro, stability would increase again I would imagine. I haven't tried no bars, I found the nylon ones to be excellent allowing more lean angle without upsetting the bike, yet still allowed you to stop the bike and take off again.

Just as a matter of interest I have a 13 tooth pinion I plan to try along with the 4800 kv motor. Will have to clock this combo and see what the top speed is

yes have been saying someone needs to com out with a wheelie bar the will keep the bike straight up and stable while doing wheelies. the aluminum traxxas wheelie bar wheels that you can get (red or blue) with a decent wheelie bar to replace the metal brace under the tail of the bike would make a perfect combo. as long as its pretty stubby, anything to long would hinder the performance of the bike and throw the center of gravity off.
