The base kit is very solid already. I think one must change item is the metal steering shaft with bearing. It makes a huge different in terms of cornering. And you may want to change to e-gyro too as it make the bike very stable at low speed. I love mine and it is lot of fun drifting in dirt.

Here are the pics of the rider or as ARX racing call it the dolly LOL.
Time to take it for a good run through the week and dial it in a bit more with the rider. Waiting on a electric gyro to come for it and a few spares.

Come on guys show us your ARX 540.

I'm hateing the rain here right now i want to have a run with a few of my toys but can't be stuffed spending hours and hours cleaning mud off them, its much easier to just blow them down with the compresser to get dust and dirt off.

I think i'm going to need some waight on the front to keep the wheel on the ground because of the 4.5 turn motor LOL throttel control is going to be a fine art but this is going to fly. Keen to get a speed gun on it when sorted to see how fast i can get this to go.
Steering damper has been put on the sterring and works very well, i used a Tamiya truck damper and it fits very well have put one on the Anderson M5 and that fixed the problem there also fits under the body with good amount of room.

Hum... It is better to run 4 gears in the gyro. And I see you are missing one screw in the hub. This will cause the hub to vibrate and strip the gears.... And another thing check the rims too as my friends ARX the rims bend... Causeing the wheel housing to touch the flywheel.... But I think the best solution is switch to e-gyro. Works much better.
