Steve, I know. I have one OTO T258 too:

Expensive but very very good speed

Steve
That oto looks brilliant...

Loving the Silverlit, getting close to being able to do figure of 8's in a small space now - just need to keep practising.
And glad I got the second one, shows what they should be like...

Thanks.

No problem, Steve

1/12 Brushed vs brushless:
This is my Chili Brushed:

and this is 5250KV brushless:

Well lalain, I got to say the brushed one looks better to me, but what about the rider? where is he are you going to try and fit the rider, or is it not possible with all the mods?

But not on the brushed because the steering line become bad

hi @ all,
at first - my english is bad - sorry for that.
i read this lines very interested but i am asking me why nobody has used a miniz esc with fets. so i thinik its posssible to use 7,4 v lipos and a fast atomic motor (t2 or chili).
is that not possible with the esc from a miniz car???

i would make this with my ducati:

1. esc from miniz car
2. atomic chili motor
3. lead in the knees and the helmet from rider

is that ok??? or is it better to use the direct steering - i dont know how to build that.
is that direct steering easy to handle for a beginner in driving a motorcycle?

i want to drive only on a large miniz course (10 x 10 meters).


best regards

rossi from germany

Hi Rossi, welcome
I have made that:


but I have now bad reception, electronic problem (solder ?), so this board is removed
The Chili motor is not good for 10x10m, and not good for beginner
HOR rider has bad efficienty for turn with big speed. So the best for you is :
esc from miniz car
stock miniZ motor, or x-speed. And Chili later.
steering servo, see all this post !

I'm french. Ich habe während sieben Jahren Deutsch gelernt. Which is the best german bike forum ? what do you find for 1/12 bikes in germany ?

Very good shop
It's not easy for me to explain the rules to have a good steering with a servo; the beginners always put a "save-servo drive" too hard.
Look at this german forum:
http://www.norisbike.de/forum/phpBB2...ight=silverlit
Easier for you

anybody thought about a larger pinion? Has any one had the bike apart enough to see if this is possible?
