RC How To:

GPV-1 Complete Steering Upgrade

 

 

There are many hop-ups for the Venom GPV-1. And like all of my other vehicles, I like to start the upgrading with the steering.

 

The stock steering setup is more than adequate for the bike. Steering is much different on an R/C motorcycle and you don't need a lot a throw to steer the bike.

 

Some of the reasons for this upgrade were to add alloy parts for weight as well as bling factor. The forks make a huge difference and both show and go. The servo was upgraded so I could go all digital mode on my radio.

 

 

Parts used:

Venom - 0352 - Alloy Forks & Preload Adjustment

Venom - 0300 - Alloy Triple Clamp Set

Venom - 0339 - Steering Bearing Set

Venom - 0329 - Alloy Steering Stem

Hitec - HS-5085MG - 60oz Digital Servo

Venom - 0327 - Alloy Servo Mount
