The best tip I can give about the ARX is to install the Cusago steering stem and triples on the off road bike.

http://www.armodelling.com/kit-di-co...i-cavallo.html

Itīs not available as noted at the web, but give Antonio a call and letīs see if he can do a miracle...

Original bellcrank steering system, same as Ricky bike and Quanum, makes driving more difficult when tight cornering is a must.

Cusago steering system is the same of any on road bike (all scales) and can be found as standard at Venom/Atomik bikes and SR4. Great improvement in handling.

About the rest of the bike, itīs a good piece of engineering youīll surely enjoy.

Congrats. Just enjoy the bike for a while. Not many "mods" have been shared aside from changing the steering. Others have used Phantom 400 steering parts on the ARX to convert to direct steering. Those parts might be hard to get. I wonder if the Himoto MX400 steering would be compatible. Wish I had the bike to help.

Here is a show off bike on my site that has a nice bit of upgrades to his arx: the phantom 400 direct steering with mm450 steering damper, 16mm big bore shock. sr4 rear tire. Going way above that is the NF front spoke wheel and tire which is more just pure eye candy (cannot use the ARX front brake upgrade either).

If you plan to jump over gas range, you'll need some more track to gain speed...

The thing to watch for with the HPI guy is him moving around and leaning forward etc. Some Velcro on his butt and seat should keep the COG consistent.

Yes, and maybe a couple bagels under that "Breads of the World" board would help make a nice launch ramp!

Good idea about the Velcro to hold HPI guy still.I have ordered some orange countersunk washers and stainless countersunk allen screws to replace the stock screws to add a bit of colour.Its a pity AR apply the stickers to a clear body.I would of predfered the overfilm being left on the body and the stickers in the box so you could add your own base colour.

HPI guy posing well there lol.I got the ARX back out of the box as I thought I better check it all works ok.I didn't drive it but the egyro span up ok and the steering worked so that's good.I could tell that its going to need a more powerfull steering servo tho.
