Free my speech
Is the Deantech 1/8 similar?

How does the performance in your opinion stand up against the other 1/8 scale bikes? Also Is that a 1/5 scale rear tire and rim?

Tires and rims size are very near the ZH Racing1/8.
My bike was first with the brushed motor and the Max speed was not good. With the brushless and the gyro I was surprised How easy and fast ; the gyro weight is not too big (nothing as M5/dx450). I have now to try driving without the gyro...

Itīs 40 shore (soft) Mars X-Rider, for exemple ref. XR8162s with rc-motorradshop.
The Mars rims are very hard, nice.
Does have somebody compared Mars and GRP tires performances ?

Without gyro on the video, are you sure ?
This is a pic before mounting the front tire:

For the rear tire it's necessary to put some super glue points (with the brushless power the centrifugal tork make it go out).

I have today changed the motor:

It's a 5400kv founded on eBay. He is longer as the older; no problem with the body but 45mm is the maxi we may put in
It was a little snowing this morning, I'm waiting for a best weather to try it...

Mine arrived this week . Super fast delivery , 6 days china to Canada . For the money it looks like a great bike . It 's not as sturdy as my ZH though . Steering rods and springs are lighter , inner front fork tubes are smaller diameter , and the steering bulkhead / yoke looks like a weak spot . I doubt it can take the abuse I've put my ZH through but I still can't wait to try it out on some indoor carpet tracks . The gyro should help on the tight 1/10 tracks .

I like it but...........

I have had this bike for 2 weeks now and I like it. The one thing that I strongly dislike is there are no spare parts in the US and that is a big bummer. I also do not like that you can only get a RTR version because I much rather have a kit. But I am hoping that this will be good enough to get started with bikes and then I will step things up.
