Take a break from the truggies, buggies, and monster trucks.

Step into the world of the VMX 1/4th scale dirt bike. With true to scale details, the realistic Motocross performance will leave you thinking that you’re a Supercross hero as you clear the triple and blast the whoop section on your own backyard track. The VMX chassis was an exercise in compact functional space management while keeping a true to life look of a full-scale 450 moto-cross bike. Covering up all that work would be a shame if it wasn’t for a very detailed and realistic looking body set styled after contemporary 450 race bikes. The VMX 450 has a unique trap door style locking battery compartment that will accommodate many different battery packs from NiMH to Lithium Polymer. To top it all off, a highly detailed Neocell foam rider figure completes the package. Venom has spared nothing to create this scale yet functional specimen of engineering. The latest VR3T 2.4Ghz 3 ch fully programmable radio system controls the VMX 450 while a powerful V Series 540 class brushless system puts the power to the ground via the miniature steel roller chain.

The VMX rear wheel features a patent pending highly adjustable gyro that enables the VMX to stay upright at slow speeds. The innovative design centers the gyro mass to give the VMX balanced control and can be adjusted to suit drive styles and track conditions.

Since power is nothing without control, the Design Team at Venom took things a step further and developed the only full function off road motorcycle tires in the industry. The front and rear wheels and tires feature Venoms proprietary concept Beadlox and Griplox wheel and tire system. The scale looking MXR-1 race tires are captured in a bead locking wheel while the tire volume is filled with a form filling molded insert.
