I managed to get out last night, local shopping centre has 2 car parks, never thought of trying the far one, as of an evening everyone parks close to the main shops

pouring with rain, looked more like a lake than a car park, with lots of standing water, only on the surface not huge puddles, just looked worse due to the smooth tarmac.

got the SB5 hammering round, roadies doing an unbeleiveable job, testing it out for how it changes direction at full speed etc, and trying to high speed circles to work on the setup for sweepers at ends of straights etc,

about 2-3 minutes into the 2nd lipo pack and "dark" yup the lights went off, could hear the bike, and knew where it was, but was funnny getting it back to me, bit like when a plane goes bit too far and your not 100% sure which way its facing etc

overall learnt a bit, had a huge amount of fun, and left it in the airing cupboard all night to dry it out, if I can find that sort of grip on a track in the rain then I will be over the moon, wasnt much different to dry.

just need to work on the steering springs as its a bit slow to change line at full whack

Had a run today at the local RC off road track. Pulled off a big fluke, wheelie into a front flip off a jump and landed perfect.

MM450 frontflip (2 min 6 sec)

MM450 more laps on RC track (3 min 38 sec)

Occasional useful idiot...
Aaaaaawwwwwwwww! Not fair!

Such a lovely flat, nicely placed jumps place you have! <Grrrr!>

E-Gyros just make it so easy to be all day amongst the twisty bits and still have stability!

Anderson, make an E-Gyro! (within my meagre budget!)

I can't wait to run the dots with stubby and some new blood guys I gathered from a craigslist ad looking for RC bike interest. Worked well.

Track is down under in Australia. Suits the bike quite well. Not too tight.

A couple of pics of me (in yellow Lostallo polo, easy to spot!) and the bike (also easy to spot among touring car pics!), from yesterdays TC Race!
My... report, sorry to say, was included in the SB-5 section... I thought it was more appropriate there!

Cheers mate, i love the slow mo stuff as well, it is good to see what the bike is doing you see stuff you can't see at full speed.
