The amount of times I have seen Scouse and Chris D rail them around Skippy at superbike speed in stock config... Scarily fast and out of shape in the wet, but still piling on the power...

They have been gone for a few months now. This one was in a package that got lost and was finally returned to me.

Venom is just batteries now. They spun off their vehicles to a new company called Atomik RC. The VMX450 is now called the MM450 and is going very strong. The GPV-1 was discontinued.

I had contact with REDStar hobbies back in Jan this year in regards to the GPV-1pro. I was told that they had some kits, but may not be complete. Anyway, I was still interested if any kit had the MTCS system, did not get a reply back. So, I assume that what kits they did have, are not complete.

There was a lot of packaging problems with the pro kits. Venom could never seem to include all the parts in the box so they were regularly missing pieces.

I still have two, that are for sale....

One in optical not the best condition but it was Always running good and fast.
Has a 6 kV brushless and LRP speedcontroller, and the frontbrake kit. (still standard sevo's)

At the moment the headstock piece is broken but I still have 3 new included.
Also a not yet fitted set of metal frame-distance pieces.

The other one is still good looking and bogstandard.

Both come without transmitter and receiver unfortunately....
