I have one of these bikes with the metal gears, bearings, rear oil shock, a stock motor out of a Sportwerks Recoil, and a LiPo battery.
It moves out pretty good with that set up. It runs best on a very smooth surface. Smoother the better!!
I am starting to buy more mods for it. I just bought the chrome chassis and new fairings so I can customize it a bit. It is the Suzuki painted just like the pic on the box.

A writer for RCCI magazine has one now, previewing before release. I'd say the wait is almost over.

Also, the HOR takes 280 size motors, so the Mamba will fit. Course, you'll be shredding parts off the bike when you take off...

I may have the acronym wrong, but it's not Car Action. It's a british mag/ site. They're doing the review for Venom. here's a link:
