    Cody, the guy with the remote hit another button and made the numbers disappear.

    There was a thread about this in the forum, and like I explained there, they were experimenting with clamps and suspension. When they were using the aftermarket clamps, it had a Cycra plate on there. When they went to the stock clamps, it was a stock number plate with no numbers. That clip slipped in there, so blame it on the editor (me).

    Wild thang. I noticed the numbers too. Wonder if they were playing with some parts to do with the steering angle or damper or maybe CDI.

    I think the front end was off the bike at the beginning of the vid when the RC truck comes out too. Probably half way through shooting.

    through out the whole video, the number 17 is on the front number plate, but around 1:58, the numbers disappear.. trick of the light, or is it not one straight lap?

    Electrics are a ton better then nitros, faster, no tuning, plug and play, easier.

    Ill give it to you, nitros smell and sound better though!

    Justin divides his RC time between a Team Associated buggy and SC10. Electric's a lot easier to travel with than Nitro.

    I love the RC reference, but why is that guy ripping a short course truck out there instead of an 1/8th scale nitro!!
