the 1/5 SUPERBIKE WORLD CHAMPION 2008 bike

Here is the 1/5 SUPERBIKE WORLD CHAMPION 2008 bike
photo by Manuspain.
Manuspain tested OTO forks again and again never give up.
We are so glad they won the best result.
Although the forks and front disc brake just a small part of whole bike, I am still very happy been joined the test.
They really did a great job!

Hi again.

Those are Irving parts mounted on Mario's bike. they were tested one my two proto bikes, i finished second at the Spanish national championship with one of them, and then were mounted on two brand new KP07 s for the world's.

Hi Symon.

you ll be able to see all the bike without fairing soon on KP website.

No comercial ideas behing, just my way to give my thanks to him to.

My own protos weren t competitive enough on juny to go with them at world's (1 sec / lap slower), so Keith deserves this tribute.

bye
Manu

Almussafes is a very fast track, with hi speed corners, and some bumps to.
Check this vid, you ll understand how strong has to be a bike with this speed (nice round from Colin Mc Cabe) :
RC bike world championship 2008 superbike final race 2 (9 min 11 sec)
from toni Guruceta.

Mario is a driver with a hard braking style, so i thought it was better to use two triples to make the fork really undestructible and to never loose steer and front suspension.

Oto fork doesn t need it, but as i had some extra parts from Irving, i thought you never take care enough.


bye
Manu

too much angle, the fairing had to be narrowed with tape.

Hi.

With mine, i used thunder power V2 3.850 batteries in 25C.

Mario's one was using Watts RC 3.850 batteries in 35C.

Those batteries are mounted by a guy in Barcelona, but no idea were he gets the cells. He says the quality is similar to thunder power, but the power is much more. The only problem is when the pack is empty. The bike goes slower suddenly, but it's not possible to finish the lap, two corners later the bike stops.

bye
Manu
