-EDIT- its $229 on the venom website pre order! so by time its gets here £150 i bet !!! and it looks like it has not got mechanical breaks where as my oto bike has 3 lol are they not needed on an electric bike so much?? atleast being smae scale as oto bike could race together and being cheaper and smaller than 1/5th might mean more about so more racing!!! -
Wow that does look good like the oto bike i have but carbon chassis! though it seems its not full carbon but a mix of glass and carbon!
Be interesting to see how much these go for! I reckon around £150-200
Which RTR will be well cheap! looks like brushed set up to not brushless like the oto bike, still might be able to nab a rider from it, made of neo foam so might crash well lol!!

SURPRISE!!!! hahaha Yeah this has been eating at me for quite some time so here it is the Venom Racing GPV1. It has an available front disc brake kit, carbon fiber race chassis with more geometry choices and lots of alloy option parts including a fork set with adjustable external preload. I can go on and on this bike is feature packed. I'll let you guys explore it and ask questions. More info is coming out, there is a video on our site as well.

hey! lol I know but here it is!
Since I know you guys are going to ask here is the info for the racers out there...
Yes it will accept a Mamba BL system
You can use a wide range of Mini servos, the servo mounts have ample space and adjustment for any digital to analog servos.
The brake kit comes with our own micro servo but again if you wish you can use one of your own.
We offer a range of pinion gears and two optional spur gears, 60T, 62T and 64T is standard
The V5 compound tires are very soft and good for most surfaces but you have to get your hands on the V1 and V3 comps they are very sticky!
I have tested the bike up to real high speeds with an 8000Kv motor and I have to say for ease of use and driving something in the 5-6000Kv range is all you need and wheelies are very easy on command...and leaned over! The front end is planted and you can power slide the rear if you wish. It drives very well plus you can change the rake and wheelbase and ride height and even the down travel of the swing arm. Tons of tuning options if you cant find grip...well lets just leave it at that! lol

Yeah well done for keeping us in suspenders Chris, been a long time waiting to release details and I bet a lot of people like I am, are very excited about it, Venom GPV-1 are the first true RTR 1/8th race bikes!
This is going to be huge! Best book early!
