Default RE: Ricky Carmichael Bike - Hop-up

My current brake system is very crude (but better than nothing). I have a servo mounted to the rear frame with a swing arm which has a cork pad attached.

I used a "Y" harness to the throttle channel which allows me to have some opposite (to the throttle) movement on the rear servo.

Its crude because there is not much stopping power due to the strength of the swing arm assembly and the fact that as you apply more brake, you get less fuel to the motor and risk starving the motor.

I'll try to get a picture of it and post it......

Maybe sometime, I'll rectify this a add some kind of disk breaking system.

It's been 10 years, but I still have a NIB and an open new Ricky. I keep them alongside the Venom VMX450.
