great looking bike, you should try the steering hop-up, it makes the bike more flickable. here's a link http://2wheelhobbies.com/product_inf...roducts_id=244. if you do you'll need this to http://2wheelhobbies.com/product_inf...roducts_id=251. also not to sure what steering servo horn you have but http://2wheelhobbies.com/product_inf...roducts_id=299. you'll need to make an extention on one side to fit it all, i can show you a pic if you want

Hi,I am new to this.I do have the Aluminum Steering Damper parts you suggested but have not put it on the bike yet or learnt to ride the bike also.Could you please show me the pics that you have of your set up.This is my first rc bike and I am really getting into it but I need to learn more, is it possible that I can keep in contact with you if I have any more questions.I have gone through all the forums and as I live in Australia and these bikes have only just hit our shores I am finding it difficult getting any local help with this bike.
Thank you

here's a couple of pics of the steering hop-up, note that i put an extention on one side of the steering horn. also get a piece of stiff wire to make a brace for your front brake(make it point forward)after time it can wear it's self lose and cause your front tire to lock up while riding. if you look in the first pic you can also see front wire brace

I agree with the front brake mod.My bike did this last week and ended up bending the caliper mount.Thanks for the mod.I will definitely put that on my bike too.I've already done the double dampener.I've also done the front brake mod that I got off another forum.You just make up some levers and make the arm longer on the caliper which will increase the mechanical advantage.The front brakes work much better.

Go to rcgroups.com and check out their bike forun.Look under Thunder Tiger Nitro Ducatti Assembly & Starup Recommendations.Their are a few good mods on there along with the brake mod.Very easy to do and makes a big difference.

Just ordered new tires and rims along with the tuned pipe.Should be here in the next couple of days.I can get my bike to turn good but with some better tires I'm hoping to get it to hook up alot better.It doesn't matter what kind of vehicle your running tires are always the first thing you need to figure out.Once you find the right tire combination then it's time to move on to other things.I have done alot of experimenting to get the bike to handle better and now it's time to get some good tires.The bike works a whole lot better than it did when it came out of the box but still not where it needs to be.In bone stock form it really sucked compared to where it is now.

Parts came today.Mounted and installed tires and rims also put on the pipe.Man does it sound good.Spools up real nice but of course it's pouring rain out.Looking forward to seeing the difference with new tires and the pipe.

So are the bikes recomendable?
I have the option of buying a near new one off a mate. Would just be for carpark bashing. Is the front brake really needed and are they hard to work on?

They are a blast.I don't find them hard to work on but they do have a number of things that need to be done to make them realiable.I have the front brake and would say it's a deffinite advantage to have but not a must have option.I would recomend one to anyone with previous nitro experience.If inexperienced I would suggest an electric version.

I got balistic on mine and added a Trax 2.5 motor to it...Im still fine tuning the top in, at this point if you punch it. when it starts to top out it may bog at peak rpm...I love the bike but they are a pain in the butt working on

You are too lean on the H needle that is a lean bog you are experiencing. Fatten up the H needle a 1/4 turn or more.

Finally got mine. Upgraded radio and servos and battery. Added front brake. Just waiting for some lots to dry up (snow melting) to take it for a test spin. Got the intigy back shock for it and it's a good 1/2" taller than the stock. Did you guys build an extension mount for it? or just installed like is. It puts the swing arm at quite the angle as is.

put a limiter inside the shock to get the height you wont
