Hey Guys,
Here's a sneak peak at the master model for the rider figure. It will be the same neocell foam as our GPV-1 rider. Sorry no clam shell jello molds.

The gyro is smooth and doesn't seem to rob power at all. The proto has been awesome to watch. It flys really flat an level and soaks up the bumps with ease. The VMX is a million miles away from anything on the market w the similar level of adjustablity we put on the GPV-1

Man, i have to say, you guys at Venom have really stepped it up in the last 1.5 years. Nice Job. this looks like a very nice entry into the dirt bike rhelm. I just got a DX450, but can see one of these also making it into my garage.

plus Beadlock rims!!! AND motord and paddle tires. excellent.

It does look like a nice bike, but instead of the battle of the bikes this makes it the battle of the scale of the bikes.
Makes you kind of wonder who will jump in next and how big or small their bike might be.
Please don't get me wrong, it's not a bad thing, but just an observation.

Well I suppose if you count the Ricky bike, there are now 3 different 1/4 scale bikes vs. only one 1/5 scale bike...

This bike looks great! And I'm excited because there will now be an affordable source of 1/4 scale off road bike parts for those who want to offer modified chassis, swingarms, etc similar to what McLarney, KP, and others do for the on road bikes.

Awesome!

sounds to me that Duratrax was out of the loop, bigger is better and thats the way the cookie crumbles

Wrong scale


It should be 1/5 scale to compete heads up agaist the Duratrax +Anderson for some organized competition, just like how RC sc truck racing is now with many manufacturers.
