Cam at www.mmracing.biz can get you started with questions also since all he does is pretty much work on minis.. 65s, 85s..

He sells rims, hubs, suspensions... etc. he'll show you exactly what you need to get one up and running.
cam is the man!!!!!!

less friction, less rotating mass, faster turn-in. not sure what types of tracks he runs at but on small tracks its a big plus.

find a place to ride it...it's good to go. the only thing i'm needing is a real good suspension setup for SM and not 225lbs of motocross rider. this thing will buck me right off. the neighbors all love it, but I really want to test it out.

it's easy to flattrack it around my back yard though!

you might feel like you're riding a hardtail with no suspension if his suspension is setup for a 225lb rider. good luck finding traction in the rear...

i do have a pretty long straight by my house that is rarely used by the public, maybe 1/4-1/2 long..

but then again, if we go to Corpus, we can tear up the highways with Gixxerbill and not worry bout trouble.
