I'm impressed that you can handle the bike with only weight transfer ( there should be a smilie here, that takes its hat off and bows deep). I think it's very difficult to ride it that way.
Well, I'm not a bike fanatic from the beginning so the aesthetics and scale doesn't bother me that much.

Well you just got to slow down in the corners, this bike in standard form has got to be as close to real thing as you can get

Me & a mate took our silverlits for a run we took 2 each 2 x 8750kv & 2 x 10250kv but i screwed up with the camera after using the zoom to get some close up shots of my mates bike i forgot to zoom back out so when i put my hat cam back on i filmed more track than bikes, this is what i did get before i stuffed it up & missed a lot of good footage, these are the 8750kv bikes we had a blast i love these bikes they are so much fun, watch it until the end for a bit of a chuckle

Hi Maylord, i have not used the bearings myself but you may want to just measure the standard plastic flanged bush's that are in it, i know the ducati has a larger shaft than the honda, if i was going to get bearings myself i would get them from here http://www.smallparts.com.au/store/p...arings/wide/1/

Sincerly, I think I have good ideas but I'm not good enough to finish it only with my Dremel. For example, the 3PK mixing to have lower gyro speed with higher wheel speed is for me a nigthmare
And all I have tried cost me more than the Z Kyosho, at this time for nothing

What happens if you reverse the direction of the gyro channel, lalain?

Went to the track again yesterday with the 10250kv silverlits & had a blast these bikes are so much fun, my mate still needs more practice but he is getting better at it, we will have some good racing when he can do consistent laps.

For anyone who is interested & has the ducati my bearings turned up today for my 1/8 kyosho hor kit i am about to start building & the 3 x 6mm flanged bearings are perfect to replace the plastic swing arm shaft bushes they won't fit the honda as it has a slightly smaller shaft than the ducati, i purchased them off ebay they only cost a few bucks.
