Yes, it is a very rare bike you have there especially since it has been at least a decade old.

It could fetch at least $400-$500 on ebay, as I've seen before.

i'm trying to decide whether to get the thunder tiger fm-1 .... something, or the thunder tiger dugatti 999i, i don't know the exact names, but you can probably figure out which ones i'm talkin about, so which one is the better deal and which one will go ffffaster?

We run into the old RTR vs. kit debate here -

The Ducati comes ready to run, with charger and everything. So it's a bargain, but if you want speed you'll have to swap out the motor and ESC, and most likely the batteries and charger.

The FM-1e R1 is cheaper, but comes without electronics. Use the extra money to buy the better ESC and motor off the bat.

If you really want to race others I recommend getting the Nuova Faor kit - the parts are generally better than the previous two. Again this comes without electronics.

But bottom line is that if you own a transmitter and receiver already, I suggest you don't get the Ducati.

Hi,
I have ordered parts from Live Performance for the DWA bike, but I haven't talked to him for sometime.
Here are some photos from Mr. Ken Harper. one of his bikes has a four stroke engine.
He makes parts for the bike and he was the distributor for DWA bike.

All Photos are from KEN HARPER!
