The V4 frame is a hand built aluminium twin tube shot gun chassis and takes over 24 hours to polish by hand. Both models feature a revolutionary Kevlar reinforced carbon fibre fuel tank.  The electronics include Multi-setting traction control, launch, cruise and wheelie control and datalogging systems for use on track.
