Has anyone figured a way to get rid of that spike of power right after braking aside from changing the speed controller and transmitter? I'm using the throttle pad (spacer) and it works great to get past that spike, but the minute you use the brakes the spike is there again. Better than nothing I guess. It just makes me wonder why they put that split second surge of power in all three of their throttle curves!

Not really man, other than ripping out electronics and throwing in the bin and replace with Micro losi brushless setup 1/36 , then ya start getting some serious speed an power slides out of corners LOL maybe highside here and there !

AHHH Might do a new video soon !

I think the bike is very low geared as it zips away wheel spining, top speed is not bad but it seeing how long it runs it could be geared up, but, and its a big but there is no way I can see of doing it as there is no room for adjustment on anything, motors are fixed in place and if you were to find some way of making a different rear pully it would need a another belt But saying all that I just love this little bike now, and will make a smaller track, I have a few more to convert
Hey Steve, How are you sir?

Mine is Honda too, I just want to know the new complete setup of your(this) Honda? I saw the image on how you modified it and I'm amazed how neat it was. 'Coz as much as possible, I don't want any modification on the chassis. And you made it just what I want.

Thanks in advance..

God bless you...

Probably any 1/12 scale with a bit of trimming & drilling new mounting holes would fit but i can't say for sure & those mini champs are not cheap, i think Nevped said that the new ray bodies fit with a bit of adapting, i think it's just a buy & try deal mate.

I have only 1 Minichamps bike:

Beautifull but there is only 2 screws (none for the body), so I don't know how to open
And metal body adaptation would not not be easy
New Ray kits are cheaper and better to make rc upgrade
This is one I'm working with:




Not easy to do without belt but it work nice:

nice work lalain

the worm drive could make driving a little different.
the wheel will have a lot of dificulty turning the motor

so when you reduce throttle, wheel speed will be reduced at the same time.
you will not be able to let go of the throttle without the rear wheel locking up



i tried my ducati on 2s lipo yesterday... big difference in speed.
the sudden burst of power as the throttle is applies, was amplified to the point of many highsides
the steering also became more of a shortfall.

looks like it will soon be time for some modifications.
direct steering and a better esc for starters

cheers

Great work lalaine, it's awesome...

If you can manage to put that in Silverlit, It would be great and better alternative to belt drive system....

God bless you..........

Hi everyone!

Here are some pics of my first modified silverlit... it was 2 years ago, now I have one more with both direct steering and HOR.

I used for this bike:
- Robitronic RS-140 Esc
- GWS 40Mhz 3 channel receiver
- 9Gr servo
- Mini-Z Stock AD-Band motor
- NewRay Kawasaki 1:12 body
- 2x Li-Ion 780Mah
- Hand made foam rear tire

IT IS FAST AS HELL!!! hahahaha

...Tomorrow I´ll send to lasercut some parts for my new Proto bike 1:12, I will show some pics when it arrives... I´m planning to sell them as upgrade for Stock silverlit or for making a real 1:12 racebike.

Stay tuned!
