ZH-218B 1:8 Competition Race Bike (B)
Building on the very fast and successful 216B, the 218B has some subtle upgrades and slight changes to make it even better. If you already own a 216B you will be happy to know that the new parts are available to retro fit the previous model.
The 218B uses a cantilever swingarm with the motor mounted to it. This helps in weight transfer and balance of the bike front to rear. The design of the 218B is a much slimmer and the battery is mounted sideways allowing even greater lean angles for fast corners.
This kit uses a 2030 size brushless motor ( not included).
The kit comes Assembled without electronics included. Will require some disassembly when installing the servo's, electronics and front brake setup. illustrated instructions available at, www.zh-racing.com.
