1/12 scale body are easy to find ! In Toy's are us you can have this Ducati998 or the Aprilia GP:

The NewRay kits are only 5,99 euros and there's no paint to do
For 20 to 30 euros you can buy good kits:
- Heller:

-Tamiya:

you can make very beautifull bike but there is many work !

The best rear tyre come from Honda RC211 HELLER kit but you have to work a little with a Dremel for Silverlit wheel adaptation. I just buy another Heller kit, the Yamaha2002, and the tyre is harder
I have 3 Silverlit with different interchangeable rear tyre, depanding of the surface I want run: One personal foam for carpet, one Heller and one tamiya.
For the front wheel I keep the silverlit tyre.

lalain, been out with the bike today so much better with the 10g weight, and that 7.4 lipo gives it good speed, but it just will not turn unless you slow right down, thats ok but you have that massive kick as you let off and get back on the throttle and again this sends you wide why did Silverlit go for this strange power set up anyway still like this little bike very much ! It looks so nice I do not want to cut it about to change it to direct steering, so may have buy another going to try and add a little weight to the rider and see how it goes. There is a battery cut of on the bike as you know it just stops and if you switch it on and of again it re-starts, I was wondering if you knew what the cut of was as when I put the stock battery on charge it was reading 5.5volts, but I guess this would be too low for the lipo, do you just time your runtime? what you think the running time would be on a standard bike with that 200mah lipo? I kind of lost track of time today and I think I only ran for a few mins before I was chucked out of the cemetery carpark I know but its the only smooth surface around here, I got 75mah back in so guess run time will not be long, by the way got 220mah back into the stock battery so thats a good pack.

Yes, the run are short, you can buy other batteries
No cut problem with the lipo
For the big power after neutral problem, did you try this:

Been thinking about it but wont that keep the back wheel turning? and do you run the lipo down till the cut out?
Thanks.

Yes, the back wheel never stop but that's not a problem; I find the brake better with this very small speed, that's easy. Standard origine brake is very bad and curious with a little rear turn !
Normaly, I stop the lipo bike when power down. But one time I have
run the lipo down till the cut out, and after there was no charging problem
I have paint 2 pilots, they are ended soon...

Nice looks like a C/Creations brushless set up in there I am holding back for a while as I think these electric gyros are the way forward. Did not get out with the Silverlit today as been very busy
