Many thanks

Hi Steve,

I've got Spektrum and Futaba set ups. The Futaba module system has far greater range and is less power hungry than the Spektrum module set up.

At the drag strip I use the Futaba for my speed bike and I've driven my 1/5 bike with the Spektrum at the same place,the Spektrum goes into failsafe shutdown when it gets too far away and the Futaba set is still working,I don't think the Futaba set has gone out of range yet.

Thanks Allan thats all I wanted to know, I have tried 3 recievers in the SB5 and every one of them has the same range, so took them out and tried them in a car and its just the same, will buy the Futaba set up and see how it goes.
Thanks
Steve
Ps I wont mention it again

we tried these red silicone o-rings for the first time on a production bike this weekend (Guidoracer's bike). they worked flawlessly. smooth action with no leaks. install two orings per damper.

Hello

I ride a lot in France with SB5 and many drivers are facing a problem with the wheels too light. Following the Worlds, we weighted the front rim and it's already a big step forward ...
Does he know when someone aluminum wheels and the ballast will be available?

Got the SB-5 wheels up on the website. They are really beautifully made.

A Low-Profile Servo fits better into the bike, but you cannot use the stock steering dampers.

For the moment im using a sav÷x sc1251 lowprofil servo and it works fine with the stock steering damper.I just had to add some washers in front of the springs to get the preload that i wanted.

Try without washers, the bike stays better in angle at the corner. I prefer about 1mm gap between the spring.
