Well it seems like we have some people got together a RC Moto GP Going.

Some of yall already know what they are, to all of you that don't know what it is.
Seems like they are using 1/8 scale RC motorcycles.
2 main companies that make decent quality version of these motorcycles is Venom and Kyosho.

Venom 1/8 GPV-1 Motorcycle Pro Kit (Add you own electronics, Best Value due to the needed upgrades)
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXZDW8&P=7

Venom GPV-1 RTR (Gets you into the hobby but expect to be spending some money on needed upgrades)
http://www.rchobbyexplosion.com/VENOM_GPV_1_RTR_8th_MOTORCYCLE_ORANGE_p/vnmc-103.htm

Kyosho Hanging On Rider (Looks Cool with the moving rider, but needs some major upgrades to be taking some abuse)
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/5_1030/products_id/192440/n/Kyosho-Honda-NSR500-Electric-1-8-Motorcycle-Kit

These are some of the motorcycles i know of that can be used.
Please post any other models that you come across for this event.

The GPV is a very easily obtained bike with many hop-ups.



The Kyosho is more of a shelf queen, i have seen many that are drivable though. The rider is my favorite!!

kickazz day today although mines started out rough, Clay and i were having some wobbling issues. i managed to get mine sorted out but it took all day! we couldnt race today because the Mikes staff was short handed. here are some pix and i will DL a video later its ten minutes and HD so it will take a while.








Everyone is getting better X and brent put some good laps down!

If I have time to shrink the files before hockey tomorrow, I'll post a few of the shots I took from turn 3. I got a pretty good shot of how close Marcus gets to his crash bar in the corner without hitting.

they really are, its a different skill to drive them and racing together requires patience, you cant bulldog your way into a turn, you will either overshoot or wash out, corner speed is king! we also had enough F1's to race too! i think we are going to race F1 at the next event.

they are lexan, you paint them like normal RC cars. you can buy the riders in white but im having a hard time finding paint that will stick to it. you can also just buy prepainted bodies in different base colors

www.2wheelhobbies.com is where we all get most of our parts.

PostSubject: Gpv progress in the last 4 months!   Tue Aug 16, 2011 12:26 pm

Very nice pictures!!! It is really awesome to see the interest of the bikes coming around. I have been driving mine for a couple of years now... The new guys coming around are catching up very fast!! I am no longer the fast guy!!! It was very hard at first to drive these little things, but you can see the people with patience are learning fast and have no problem helping out. Even the drivers with little patience and lesser wrenching skills are becoming a danger to my 1st place title for the moment. Its going to be great when we become 12 strong so we can run two classes. Also it is looking like the F1 guys are coming out too. Most of them have the GPV also which makes it nice. That will make our hobbies realism even better to the spectator. Thanks everyone for making my hobby even more enjoyable!!!!
