EGAD!! That's nifty! :nice: Dual disc brakes? Direct steer? That 1st picture is bad: I wouldn't put the body on when you're displaying it. Perhaps I'm thick, but when you say 'Oto' bike, is that the brand or? Damn nice Biscuit, and Welcome, by the way! Chris

Chris, The bikes are made buy a guy in Tiawan (Irving) a real nice guy, he runs a place called the OTO bike studio, hence the name of the bike. It comes pre built with brushless motor and esc which works very well, you have to buy your own servos and rx and 2cell lipo battery, price of the bike £325 worth every penny, fantastic performance very powerfull m/c runs so smooth, one of my favouite models, and I got a few :chug:

1/8 scale like a HOR? Wow!

Believe me this is nothing like a HOR, it never breaks, handles like its on rails, smooth and fast, with mega brakes, as I said before this has got to be the best bike out there.:)

Why didn't you say these were 1/8 in your post? Now I'm, like, very impressed & stuff! :banana::nice: I thought, naturally from the pics, that they were 1/5: DAMN YOU BISCUIT!! Now I'm gonna have to try & get one!! Just what I need :lol: I couldn't help wondering if the tyres would fit the HOR of course! Thanks for the link! Chris

I contacted Irving, and found out that these are $700 including shipping to the States. :bomb: Yowtch! But, I'm just sad that I can't get one next Thursday :cryin: I do not feel that they are overpriced. All the machine work appears to be 102%, and they come with a brushless & ESC. (I'd use a Kyosho rider, though: The one from OTO looks like a hunchback with dysentery :lol:) Chris

Im not so sure, think the hard plastic Kyosho rider will fall to bits, I think the OTO rider looks good, what you got to remember this is a real racing bike not a toy, if you look at my Nuova Faor rider I think you will agree that its :puke: but it does the job and has taken a lot of big crashes and comes back for more. The OTO bike looks good with the body work on, if you want a bike just to look at buy the Hor, but if you want a bike to use that is fast and does not break after the first big crash, (and you will have a few :)) buy the OTO :chug:
