PostSubject: A idea what we run in our Bikes   Sat Aug 20, 2011 1:12 pm

Esc and Motor

Battery
http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-25c-1100-2s1p.html
This one seems to fit better. Good run time on the lower kv motors
http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-25c-1300-2s1p.html
this one i use because i like the weight/and run time. It helps keep the front planted and the wheel on the ground. It does not fit so good with alot of rear drupe. But i dont run that.

As for servos, the Kit bike comes with a brake servo
my steering servo may be over kill.... but it works very well to me and is high speed which could be good and really bad too.

Just a little side note, i enjoy the mamba stuff. I run the sidewinder and a reedy 7000kv motor which i will be going lower in kv soon i think. 6800 or maybe the 5400. as for radios... if you have a 3pk or a m11 your set, the braking options on those radios are awesome. If you get the Venom radio for the bikes thats 2.4g that is in my opinon the next best thing because of the 3rd channel options. I have had my m11 since i raced nitro 1/8 buggies. I was lucky to have it when i started the bikes. If you need anything else let me know!!!

Looks like you have yourself all the hard stuff. Just get a pro kit, But keep your eye out for a RTR for parts that will be needed in the future. As for the 2200 lipo? I am pretty sure that will not fit. I had a thunder tiger 2100 and it was so close, but made bigger problems then it was worth in the end. Either the rear will touch or the front will after one or two wrecks. All you need is a 900mah to make a qualifer and a 1000mah to make it through a main. The 1550 lipo from Gen ace (hobbypartz.com) will fit well too. but i like to be able to move my battery from front to back on the chassis for center of gravity. Its your call... but i have been driving these things for 2 plus years and made all the mistakes lol.

Its a first generation Gen Ace battery.
Which are based of the older more expensive chemical =D so its about between the size of the 1800 and 1550.

Else i have a Lithium-Manganese and Lithium-Ion, those should fit perfectly.
Always wanted to try Ion in RC environment, see if they Blow up on abuse.

Just be sure we have a camera out. I would love to see it blow up.

This is Collin Edwards (Conroe,Tx boy!!!! On his Aprilla* Moto Gp)

If it looks like this that would be AWESOME!!!

Hahahhahahahah Wow xD

Is he gonna let go of the Motorcycle ? or he planning to hang on ? LMAO

Sadly "Ion in Metal" Case and "This particular Manganese Soft-pack" don't catch on fire as violent as Phosphate (Po)

But doesn't the battery reside under the MotorCycle ?

Umm i cant remember the situation but he got about half a mile down the stright or so before he noticed it was on fire. Long story short he was going over a hundred or something like that and just jumped off the bike. It was a pretty epic situation and he was riding again the next day i believe. It was during qual or practice.
