Default ne1 have a thunder tiger fm1e motorcycle opinions?

I was thinking about getting one to mess around with at the house and maybe at one of the larger tracks I race at.
What do you think of them, what kind of run times out of some good batteries (3300) and does anyone know where I kind find hop ups for the bikes or aftermarket tires and parts
Thank you for any information

I had one. I got like 15 minutes of run time on a 3000 pack. You can get hopups from crazynutracing.com, they have alot of good stuff. I had one, but didn't like it, I couldn't get it to stand up. Maybe I had it setup wrong or something...

I have a RTR TT bike currently (EP) and I'm on my way to convert it to nitro (custom made parts). need more input on how to better it,...

I managed to ride w/ it nicely yesterday, bust still can't turn nicely in tight S curves, need more practice, hehe...

I heard that the nitro bike is easier to handle because the power train is not "locked up" when you release the throttle (make sense,.. nitro bike has a clutch)
