  • Considering there is zero racing here in the states I will bring up where racing does happen instead. In Europe there is a 3 race series of rc dirt bikes and they do have the numbers to run 1/5 and 1/4 separately. Second, Duratrax (using design by Anderson) is the ONLY rc dirt bike that is 1/5 scale. Having more scales is no different then 1/10, 1/8, and 1/5 rc trucks so its all situational. As for "no universal scale," its been 1/4 for every single other rc dirt bike out there!

    This hobby is an extension of ones passion for mx bikes. You don't like it, move on and enjoy your own thing. I for one love mx, and while I don't ride or own a bike anymore, I love watching it every time its on. So being able to take that passion for the sport and transfer it to r/c is just amazing. For me, creating a replica of Ryan Villopoto in an rc dirt bike is just AWESOME. No problem John, the rc world guys who have any sort of motorcycling in their back rounds, whether it be in sport bikes, offroad dirt bikes, MX/SX bikes, road racing bikes, need to be made aware of this really interesting, almost unbelievable vehiclal, actually works exactly like the full scale bikes do. Most people that see them run always say "How do they do that?" And for guys that just like to bash, they are way more interesting to master than any 4 wheeled vehical. I can't wait for someone to come up with a "Trials Bike" the 2 wheel equivalent to the popular rock crawlers.

    Edit; heh, jut went to RC Dirt Bike Action someone linked earlier, and its actually got videos of the guy I was talking about running his bike at the 1/8 track I race at here in Gladstone, Aus

I post updates and fun photos on facebook page, and the website for the more important news, how-tos, etc.

    • RadioShack Ricky Carmichael (back in 2005) 1/4 scale
    • AR Racing ARX540 (based on the ricky bike) 1/4 scale
    • HobbyKing QRF400 (discontinued) 1/4 scale
    • Himoto Burstout MX400 (distributed by NitroRCX here in US) 1/4 scale
    • Atomik MM450 (and its older version the Venom VMX450) 1/4 scale

    As for popularity of the bikes well the Atomik MM450 with the e-gyro (electric gyro) is a game changer in terms of functionality. Atomik's own handling of the bikes and release dates hasn't helped but then again they are the ONLY US distributors of an rc dirt bike with e-gyro. I think one big thing that has to be fixed is peoples mentality and comments like the bike is slow. Slow In terms of what, a 4x4 1/8 buggy running 3s-4s? It runs on 2s with a 550 motor and can clock at over 30mpg. Pretty sure scale speeds are above what 1:1 mx bikes do. Again, these are 2 wheeled mx bikes that have to deal with peoples expectations that they are indestructible 4 wheel trucks that require no learning curve.

That day was my first and only battery around that layout, like you say with a bit more practice learning the track they would be great. I had been thinking of coming and racing with the 2wd SC trucks as the lap times on the old track seemed similar although the track is pretty bad in spots at the moment. I might wait for a rebuild. Have you seen the rocks hanging out in spots and the jump face into the corner in front of the stand is hammered. Ideally a fraction wider track made from clay not deco and more friendly barriers would be ideal for a bike track. Hi Dave and John.

Released earlier this year though NitroRCX was the Himoto MX400 1/4 scale rc dirt bike. The NitroRCX guys released some videos of the bike on release but Ive not seen much news on the bike from the community or videos from owners over on youtube.
