The guy who makes the swingarm and chain setup has awebsite but hasnt updated it in forever.
I would like to get that setup, where?
Also I need to get a Revo shock for the rear still.
I also found out that tires from 1/8 buggys fit right over the existing tires like your paddles.
Very nice..
Is there a kit fir the nitro conversion?
Or can someone make up plans?

That is sweet! Good job on putting a wire on the filter to hold it on better as well. Looks like it could get caught up on something and get pulled off. The wire hangar should remedy that.

My swingarm and sprockets were made by myself, but you can get the DAM Machine swingarm, and Integy rear shock from Bruce at the above link. I've also heard it wont be much longer till the chain and sprocket sets are available. I've ordered from Bruce at 2wheelhobbies a few times and his service and prices are great.
Yea the 1/8 scale buggy tires work good, I did clip all the knobbies off the stock tire before stretching the 1/8 tire on and it was still a tight fit. The traction the paddle provides in the sand is awesome, LOL Well worth the sore hands from stretching the tire on.
There isn't any nitro conversion kits being made that I know of. But there is a new bike coming soon, you can see it here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=604735
There is some good videos of it running throughout the thread and it looks like a winner.

Thanks guys, I usually run the bikes without the rider. They go faster without Ricky on them, and the handling is better without the rider because the center of gravity is lower. LOL, Besides that Ricky would be headless in no time at all. Once he's strapped in he CAN'T BAIL OUT!!

speedy, Roofintrash took these pics with his wifes camera and emailed them too me. I forgot about them because they are not with all my other pics.
Have you had enough recovery time yet?
