Hi Throttle,
it is amazing how good it works. Plastic wheels with even foam tires works. It is a question of the control springs. We will be on a indoor track tomorrow. I will try to make a video to show how it works.

Hi Test Driver,
yes this is the one I had in Lostallo. Thanks for your feedback. I has been furhter improved since Lostallo, so I hope you are right. I got to pay the tools ;-).

Cheers,
Peter

That's great Peter , did you make the foam tyres, the tamiya 1/12 kits have nice rubber tyres but i don't think you can buy just the tyres.

Yes some video would be great.

Cheers.

So far I use Corally 12scale foamies. For serial production I will order the tires from the manufacturer. 50 or 45 shore should be good.

Cheers

ps: Very impressive to see these little bike handle like the big 1:5 scale one ...
pps: The question is ... where these are supposed to race ? 1:5 bikes race on 1:5 and 1:8 car tracks ... 1:8 on the 1:10 car track ... where the 1:12 ?

You could race them on a 1/10 car track, the track i run my silverlit on is 1/10 car track but i just use half of it, it handles well you just have to have soft suspension.

Cheers.

Thanks for your feedback. The logic answer would be on a 12 or 18 scale track and this would fit, Thus one was very small 10 scale track. line width appr. 1,3m,
Would say for the average driver (like I am) a 1m track is possible.

Here is another video, done by somebody else:
RC-Motorräder BP12 im Maßstab 1:12 beim testen ihrer Leistung ! (2 min 22 sec)

and
RC-Motorrad BP12 im Maßstab 1:12 (0 min 37 sec)


so, enough of advertisement.

Cheers,
Peter

New Frame.

Hi.
Haven't posted here before but I've been following the thread with a lot of interest. So much so that I had to rebuild my own 1:12 Ducati.

First of all i Ordered the 10250 Losi and a 2,4ghz Rx. Then I went about to construct a frame in Catia V5 with the same mounting towers as the original but adapted to the Losi and a new Servo.
The frame was printed out as a SLA-prototype. I mounted the parts and thats it.
I've been experimenting with extra weight in the driver and have settled for an extra 11g to get it to turn properly.
Watch it in action here

Nice, but you need to get the tank, seat & battery cover on there what rx & lipo are you using, if you use the sr3500 rx & take it out of its case & use the hitech hs-35hd ultra nano servo you would have more room.

Looks good though, good job.

Cheers.

I'm getting there, at the moment I have the underbelly on and I should be able to get the tank/seat mounted as well. Bear in mind that this is a WIP
I'm using the HK OrangeRx R410 Rx and running with two 160mah Lipo(2x410mAh on pic), About to order some 240mAh which should fit. A bit snug though perhaps.

I took the silverlit out today for a run, i felt a bit rusty after not using them for a couple of months i was just starting to get the feel of it again until one of my crash bars came loose & fell off.
