Speaking of speedway we are racing these in our parking lot for lap battles and just torching tires. We have the foot pegs off and we scrape the frame in the turns w/o guide wires just to paint a picture of how hard you can run these. The bike is so stable that you can bump bars and chassis and keep them going no problem.

I want to see a group of guys racing these on an oval typically meant for RC cars, it would be a riot!

As for the UK and EU they will come is as your dealers order them but we also sell direct to you for the same price so look at your options there.
Thats awesome Chris, congrats! No wonder your so quiet lately lol. Its a lot of money those new owners are spending especially in this economy, so those inspections will be especially important! If I didnt already have the VMX, I would not hesitate to buy, but for now its just he egyro. Atomik made a real gutsy move with this release. I hope it pays off for the company because the hobby will also reap the benefits not only with better running bikes, but with raising the bar for what other companies release. Good luck.

Yes all of the 2mm bullet plugs are being taken out and the E-Gyro ESC wires are soldered to the motor. We found an issue with the 2mm plugs and just decided to eliminate them for now.
