It's okay- it's second gear would've worn out anyway.

Speaking of which- SHE LIVES!!!

You were right about the solenoid. I bought a new (used) one today and BOOM she fired right up. The old one always was cranky- I had to hold the starter down for a while and it was about 50/50 to start on the first try.

When the pepper spray runs out, can I have your number?

Nitro is better!




Had one of these for over a year. These nitro bikes make a great sound, but are a handful to steer. They are a full blown bike, just shrunk down. Dual disk brakes, mono shock swingarm and they react just like a motorcycle. Counter-steering then full throttle produces a nice wheelie out of corners when the tires are up to temp. Run it usually at a track in Joliet named "Leisurehoursraceway.com".

Venom is coming out with a new electric bike that should be delivery soon. They are $220, but should be awesome. You can find them at 2wheelhobbies.com along with other nitro bikes.

obviously nitro is better, but for low to mid double digits the fun factor, im hoping will be high, and once i get bored... well theres the hacking and modding possibilities, with nothing off the shelf to mod it, it shouldprovide a fun challenge

I just want something I can have fun with and the cat can chase. That being said, the Nitro does look fucking awesome and would be a lot of fun.
