Could be - i've seen them on a couple of Craigs builds from some time ago - i think they were originally on his hotwheels 5T, and i know they were on his redbull shorty 5T as well.... and then the ressie chambers just went back to Vic to get the blue ceramic coating so they've crossed the nullabor a few times!!!!

headbang  thats sexy that


Turn your TC front bumper brace the other way round mate as it will bend like butter that way, TC won't warrant it like that and recommends it installed the other way.

Don't know if you knew that and just liked the look of it that way as i did and bent my first one easy as.

Shit no I never knew that, was on like that when it rocked up from Craig so I'll just blame him.....rofl  Will flip it over for sure as no doubt it's gonna cop a flogging in the dunes. Never had a 5T before always 5B's so not totally familiar with all the extra mounts and crap that hangs off them!

Hey guys the EK bug is almost RTR now, just have to wire in the pico and some other small jobs and it's off to the dunes this coming Tuesday for it's maiden run!!! visitors can't see pics , please You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login or You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login


Here's it's first start vid, holy shit the RCMK has some compression, combined with the billet pullstarter handle it nearly ripped my hand apart trying to start it while it wasn't co-operating intitially....all it needed was a little stab of throttle and it finally fired once i managed to hold the bastard down and use the controller at the same time to feed it some gas.... visitors can't see pics , please You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login or You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login


Sounds really responsive at only small amounts of throttle input already so hanging out to drive the bastard finally!!

Thats some sexy bit of gear there mate   !boobs!    perve     , she came out showing her stuff nicely.

Sure did make you work for it though but when going it's looking pretty punchy on the throttle .

fuk that's gonna look sweet in the Esperance dunes , i still cant forget seeing it at your event on the white sand and saying to Tony    fuk that looks sweet       and it wasn't near completion then .

Bring on Tuesday   blob    !dirtbike!  !dirtbike!   !dirtbike!


You should of got a white Michael Jackson glove mate instead of that plain one and done a bit of a breakdance for us   bananadance1

how did you go with the connection of the pipe , it already was a nice snug fit and the ceramic added some meat.
Did you sand some material off to fit?
It's the best fitting pipe in the connection area i have seen to date  thumbsup

I ran it guys, and so far underwhelmed with how it went to be honest......BUT, to be be fair it's spanking new, and rich as hell still, put a tank and a half through it in 15 min sessions, the last I adjusted the throttle EPA's to give me full throttle and it didn't go much different, going back out this morning with Pat for a bash, so will lean it out and try get a run in between the showers of rain!!!

I'm sure it'll loosen up over the next few tanks and respond to some tuning today, well it f*^*%* better!!!! Will get some footage today.  !dirtbike!

I don't think your going to be too excited Kane. From what I understand they are very torquey but don't rev!! You may need to get the barrel ported to allow more rpms.
