Default What scale?

In light of the new venom bike what scale should I be looking at? Are the 1:5 bikes more tollerant of paving issues? How much space do I need for 1:5 versrus 1:8? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Im sure what you mean by "paving issues". I have a 1:5 scale and I make sure to find a place with as much room as posible. A nice empty parking lot should work out fine. watch for speed bumps, unless you want some air time. I quite sure you dont .............

We race the 1/5th bikes on 10th scale tracks,They can be run in the street if it empty. The 1/5th also take a good beaten

the smaller bikes only have a small amount of suspention travel and you need as smooth a surface as possable or it just going to pitch off everywhere,

Both scales need some room depending on the motor you put in, I got a 9200 kv in my 1/8th and that needs some room to get up to speed

I was mostly worried about suspension issues, not having access to a prepared race surface. So then I guess I'm leaning towards a thunder tiger bike unless someone can point me towards something else.

The TT will handle some ripples on the roads, or there the NF, which is slighty more pricy and not RTR.

You will need a new front tyre if you go for the TTe, The one that comes with the kit is trangler and does not transistion left to right very well.
