the lower fairing doesn't stay on very well sometimes (though mine rarely comes off). so some guys just run without it, and it'll actually let the bike lean better (notice the scrapes on the front corners of mine..)

Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum, but wanted to drop by and put in a plug for our race coming up this weekend (8/21) at Delta R/C Raceway in Antioch, CA.

You nor-cal guys have to show up and support your two wheel "cousins"! The championship race in May back in Las Vegas was a huge hit, with people showing up from the UK and Italy. The prizes were incredible, not to mention the camera crews from Two Wheel Tuesday and Inside R/C. Also the photographers from R/C Car and R/C Driver were great too.

Us here in the states are working hard to promote this class BIG time. . . with the upcoming Delta race being the second motorcycle race held there so far. With the wide lanes it is perfect for the bikes. Historically this race will be only the 3rd organized motorcycle race ever in the US.

Last time we raced at Delta there were 3 bikes in the 1/8th class and 3 in the 1/5th class, but we have heard more to show up this time, especially in the 1/5th class. Potentially 7 competitors now in that class to show up.

It should be a fun weekend!

Default Nuova Foar 1/5 Scale Nitro Bike

Hi Everyone!

Internet-RC Radio Control is announcing a new price and package for the Nitro Version of the Nuova Faor SF501 1/5 scale Motorcycle!

The new version includes a SIRIO .12 high performance engine for about the same price as the old version that came without the engine!

In cooperation with Nuova Faor, the new version of the SF501 has had a few changes in order to reduce the price for our customers. The new version comes with a plastic fuel tank instead of metal and a few metal gears have been changed to carbon-fiber plastic gears. The parts that have been changed are now available as options for those who want them. The bike still rides and handles the same and still looks great.

You can see the new pricing at our website www.Internet-RC.com

Thank you for your continued support for this great hobby!
