Hi everyone. My name is John. I was doing some searching for rc dirt bike stuff for my site and I came across this discussion, so I had to register. I started building a website, facebook page, and youtube channel dedicated to rc dirt bikes. I love this hobby and its an awesome way to extend my passion for real dirt bikes which I dont ride any more. Anyways, I love what Im seeing, keep it up!

I came across your site after reading the whole thread on RCG, it was very helpful when tuning my forks and new big bore...thanks a bunch. You're welcome to repost my pics (don't forget the peg leg ), I'll get a shot today with the "glass" installed in the Deeganator's goggles.

Right on, glad it helped! I got some great rc biker friends supporting me with a lot of little tips for the bike, plus I own a VMX with e-gyro so the tips will keep rolling in. Working on basic front brake setup atm.

Lol at your peg leg - poor deegan, err deeganator, is more machine now haha. I'll wait for you to post up the lense and put them up as a set. Your first name Chip? So I'll just refer the picks to you by your first name and maybe your largescale login name unless you want different.

My name's actually Wilfred Valtakis II...but I've been called Chip since I was born, "chip off the old block" kind of thing.

Default Lights...now we need a camera and some action!

Got my headlight and tail light finished up last night. Tail light is just a red 5mm LED in an Axial bucket I had leftover from my Wraith build, powered off the receiver. The headlight I'm more proud of ...it's a 7.4v Surefire P60 lamp assembly with a mineral glass lens held in place with Norland 61 optical epoxy. The whole thing was then painted with black BBQ paint and mounted between the new billet triple and the number plate with a bracket made from a titanium pocketclip blank leftover from my high end flashlight days. It's powered directly off the 2s battery, current draw is ~1 amp...1/5 the draw of the e-gyro. And did I mention that it's insanely bright...probably brighter than one of the headlights on my 1:1 POS.

So SICK! I need to mount my headlights on my soon to by desert bike.

BTW, my second MM 450 supermoto arrived today. Had to run the box into the garage real quick so the wife didn't see.

Default I couldn't take it anymore!

The gold forks were clashing horribly with all my red billet bling ...nothing a little time at the buffing wheel wouldn't fix.

Or do I close up two holes to get the same approximate hole area (7.06mm squared vs. 6.78mm squared) and use 70wt?

~Chip
The holes may add up close when doing math, but the holes will change compression/rebound damping big time. My friend Chris Haertel, who started using big bore shocks in the VMX a year before the mm450 was out is using a 16mm big bore (Hot boddies) with 6 hole 1.2mm piston with 70wt oil range (mix of losi and AE brands if that helps get you close with cst's). On youtube you can see his videos, especially being the only mm450 videos on a real track hitting triple jumps, I would try his suggestion when your cleaning your shock next time. ;)

Hey Chip you still cool with me putting up some of your deeganator pics right? How shall I reference you, by first name, nick name, nick name + last name? lol

The factory honda muscle milk bikes run gold and red, but heck anything metal looks more trick than the plastic triples. I would totally strip the gold off too if Atomik sold blue triples. So you didnt need to use drano to strip your gold, interesting. I stripped my red triples for a gold fork/silver triple look. Bike looks ready for some long trail riding in the mojave desert. Very fun looking with the light.

Yup, you're welcome to use any of the pics I've posted...probably easiest to just reference my username on this forum. As for the shock tuning, I could get an oil that seemed thick enough with the 6 1.5mm hole piston. I'm now running the 4hole with 80wt Losi oil and I'm very happy with the way it handles and jumps.
