Default venom gpv-1 handling problems

ok i have the venom with a brush-less setup and a 1600 nimh battery being used ok the problem is that the bike is not stable at high speeds i get maybe half throttle or 3/4 of the way and the tire shakes like crazy and then wipe out.. how do you get the bike to stay more stable at high speeds?

The simple answer is that you are expereincing unbalanced wheels. Now that your able to go fast, the wheels can wobble if they are not balanced.

You should remove the wheels and balance them individually.

Also be sure the wheels are not loose on their axles.

Good luck!

very simple. just use some thin aluminum foil and tape it on with double side tape. Remove the front brake and drive chain. With the wheel mounted on the bike spin the wheel and see which is side is heavier and apply the foil to the opposite side. And btw: adding more resistance to the steering damper should help.
