That's NEWRAY 1/12 kits: 5,99 euros in Toy's R us ! And the plastic is light and easy to work for adaptation

I have some Maisto 1/12 kits but I think there are not very easy to adapt (but possible).

lalain is killing us with his damn mods!
A friend biker, from another forum once wrote: " I'm desperate, I want to buy an MV Agusta Brutale but my wife told: Me or The bike"... You know, he really was desperate and for weeks disappeared. One day he appeared and told: I'm the proud owner of an MV Agusta Brutale. I made my choice!"

ps. I'm not off topic, right? It's about bikes

Lalain, very interesting your strange vehicles. compliments. I cannot imagine that thing running at 50-60 km/h
Lalain, I've got a question for you. Tell me something: how did you stuff a mini-z motor in the frame of the original motor? The measure of the original motor is 1,8b X 2h X 1 cm and it's dramatically smaller than the mini-z standard motor i have. Also the pinion in the mini-z is set in a position impossible to match with the cog...

What about a Mini-z Lit X-speed?

Then another question: how did you unmount the pilot?
Please, help. I'm going mad

I have never seen your Mini-z Lit X-speed
You have to cut out frame plastic to may put the bigger motor with a mini-Z pinion:

On the bike, all is fixed with screws, without glue. It's easy to unscrew ! First check all the screws.

PS: The max speed is "only" 40 km/h:

Thx lalain, I got you. Actually i unmounted almost everything. the first step will be to understand with a friend of mine expert in electronics if it's just possible to change Fets on the ESC and gain more power with 2s 200 mAh lipos and original motors. Then we'll see. For now I filled with lead arms, legs, head and some small piece also in the body of the pilot.

ps. well, now you also learned something new: the Mini-Z Lit XSpeed motor

Lalain, incredible view! That's definitely the r/c bikers heaven! )))
I found very interesting the way you put the Easymodel brushless motor in the frames of the bike. it seems that with it's shape it's not as tricky as others to screw in the plastic. Right?
I also read that you found it not so powerful, compared to the Chili.
Did you already try to mount this one?
it should be more powerful. does it fit the bike?
Sorry for so many questions. you know, i'm very interested in the modifications you are doing but unfortunately i'm not expert enough to be sure about what to do and what to buy.
I just know that the aim is to convert that bike in a missile!
The first thing I did after opening the box was to unmount completely the bike
Good start eh?

Don't put the Easymodel brushless motor in this bike, nor 8g or 6g because:
- It need change the axis (to wear pinion) and that's not easy
- It's not possible to put pinions with more than 12 teeth in a Silverlit bike
- Not very easy to fix: Mine had 1 screw and cyano glue.
- They miss many power and RPM. Only good by home to try with bad grip or specific configuration, for example:
The max speed is not good and the 8g EM1306 Easymodel motor is supplied with 2 lipos
Use Feigao 120s 5250 KV brushless !:

Other think not to do: Bad adjustement steering:
Crazy and not very easy to do !!!!!!!!!!!!!
