Wow great effort TJ, you blinged that bike out all the way. Now you understand once you go all MM style like that tricks are expected. Oh yeah, what happened to suzuki yellow? haha. (As I get around to posting more stuff on the site, you mind if I put up your picks?)

They know JB, this failed within a week of having my MMs, I sent pics to them and they said they would let the R & D deportment know a few months ago now. Probably just bull they told me.

Thanks John, it is hard to know what it will look like until it is finished but i am happy with the way it came out.
I don't know if vinnie is any good at tricks might have to wait until i get a Deegan lol.
Suzuki yellow is next mate i will take my time with that one & try & do as good a job as you done with your RV bike but you set the bar high with RV.

Of course you can post the pics on your site mate.

So my KDUB Graphics are almost done, here is a teaser just sent to me by Stuck On Racing. We are still determining what to do with the seat, but it looks SICK!!!!!!

I will find out if he can do graphics for other people now that he used me as a template. WIll let you know.

Edit: A note from Stuck On Racing: The only part about the actual graphics part is trying to get graphics designed and layed out for a Honda, to fit the Kawi styled plastic that is on this RC bike. Hard to make it look spot on since there are some pretty big differences in the bodywork between the two. As long as people understand that, it's pretty simple to do.

I will post full pics and finally install the massive pile of "bling" I got about a month ago once I have everything here at my house.

Have been playing with the new speedy Dave and found to get full throttle the EPA has to be set at 120%. This means with yours dialled back to 85% that is a lot of throttle its missing out on, and its still too much lol.
Oh I've found by knocking the throttle trim back say 5 or so clicks ( you could try more as long as you don't have to search for it lol ), it can make it feel smoother on the bottom end without seeming to affect anything else.

I forgot about how the EPA setting effects how smoothly the throttle feels! I'll give it a try. I knew I was missing something! Thanks Chris

Don't I have to set the radio's EPA to 120, then re-bind the transmitter to have the ESC be as smooth as possible?

Not sure Dave. I just checked mine as I revved it up you could see the lights on the speedo were blinking until I got to about 119% on the EPA. This would be as smooth as it gets as its getting full throttle right at the top. If you programmed your speedo with the EPA set lower you might have to reprogram it. Just watch the lights and see when it reaches full throttle the light will stay on.

Yeah John i spun my gyro up it is very noisy & vibrating also not like the ARX smooth & quite, it is pretty up when you have to balance your own flywheel.
