hi ian

hopefully they will arrive by the weekend and then you can have a good run with them
have you managed to get the hubs sorted on both cars?

yeah the seller has left good feedback
the bike is called a super stunt gyrocycle made by supertoys in china
from the way the bike is i would say its a 2 person job just to get it running
it says on the transmitter that the steering is oppersite when stationary to that selected "counter balance steering"
then you have to push forward on the transmitter then nudge the bike forward
the only problem is its a bit to fast to use it the frontroom
so it will wait untill im not so busy then we can see what its like
but i like it so far

Haven't done both cars yet as wanted to sort one first so knew if it went well or not.
Chosen possibly boring coloured wheels but wanted 1st set to go with any shell.

Motorbike sounds like fun, I'll google that and see what it's all about.
Have you left them feedback now?
Did you ask them why it took so long?

Thanks for your help and advice with the 12mm hubs and wheels.
Well took a couple of pics.

Thanks Dus that's realy good to know that they look good, they sort of very neutral design and colour that should go with any shell.
Will be dong the same again to the other car yes

Notice any difference in the cars? > my wallet has

Including all the parts and the donor car for cogs and parts... must have spent a lot.

Need some new cogs now, but the place you told me that is bycmo importer their site wasn't working the last few visits.

The cars have been totally transformed with the mods and don't regret spending money to get them working realy well.

What fun would it have been taking it out the box?

hi ian
it would of been fun taking it out of the box if i didnt have to charge the battery first [sm=lol.gif]
at least they left the battery in the transmitter [sm=lol.gif]
i tried to run it in the frontroom but there wasnt the space [sm=71_71.gif]

If I would sit down and add up the total money spent on these cars including the mags I'd probably frame the things on the wall

I'm surprised nobody else has joined here asking about them to be honest.

hi ian
you cant put a price on something you love[sm=biggrin.gif][sm=lol.gif]

i think most people have either given them away to family members just to get rid
or sold them on ebay or like you were going to do and throw it in the bin
as the gearbox's is the weakest link in the whole car if bycmo had spent more money on the gearbox
and made the gears out of stronger plastic or even made them out of metal
i think it would of been a better car but i have had no problems with my car

That's cool Dus that your other half and your Dad show an interest. Let us know how the bike goes
Must admit it has been fun modifying them and making them stronger and reliable.
I'm missing a few teeth on one motor cog and could do with a new set but not sure where to get just the cogs...that UK distributor has got website problems.
It's a bit mean leaving negative feedback but it's all according what their other feedback is...maybe this was a one off.

With the donor car... the latest ebay one, well it had white cogs and an esc, this was the only reason for buying it, to make son's car better.

You can only use the set together as there is a large difference in size.

Only reason they are missingteeth is due to being used on my original car from the mag and not having an esc with a brake.
Might ask my old workplace if they can knock up some alloy ones
