IMPORTANT NOTES AND WARNING
FUEL SELECTION
1. Choose a fuel from a reputable, brand name company that is approved for car/truck use. Do not
use airplane or boat fuels in your car/truck. Choose methanol based model engine glow fuel that
has a nitro content in the range 10%-30% and 5% to 18% caster/synthetic oil content for
lubrication. Lower nitro percentages will generally result in a cooler engine running temperature
and therefore last longer before needing a rebuild; cooler-running engines also generally
produce less power. 20% nitro is the most widely used fuel.
2. Fuel color is for identification purpose only and is not important to performance or durability of
your engine.
3. Be careful. If the tank overflows it might get on your radio gear or on your brakes and it may
create an unsafe driving situation. Always keep your fuel bottle closed when not in use.
4. Do not dispose of fuel or empty fuel containers in a fire. It may possibly cause fire or explosion.
ENGINE
1. For proper engine break-in procedure, please refer to the manual of your engine.
2. Never run your vehicle without the air filter .If the vehicle will be operated in an area with fine
dust, use filter oil or caster oil instead of fuel. It is important that the foam is only moist to trap dirt
and allow air passage. With the foam too wet, limited air can pass through; therefore, limiting
engine performance.
3. The parts around engine could be dangerously hot after operation. Do not touch it without any
protection!
RADIO OPERATION
1. When turning radio on, first turn on the transmitter and extend the transmitter antenna.
2. Then, turn on the receiver. When turning off, first turn the receiver off, then the transmitter off.
FIRST AID
1. If you drink nitro fuel by accident, immediately drink large quantities of water and try to induce
vomiting. Consult with physician right after then.
2. If the nitro fuel gets into your eyes, rinse them well with water. Consult with physician right after
then.
3. If the fuel gets onto your skin, wash it well with soap and water.
WARNING
1. Improper operations may cause personal and/or property damage. Thunder Tiger and its
distributor have no control over damage resulting from shipping, improper construction, or
improper usage.
2. Thunder Tiger assumes and accepts no responsibility for personal and/or property damages
resulting from the use of improper building materials, equipment and operations. By the act of
assembling or operating this product, the user accepts all resulting liability. If the buyer is not
prepared to accept this liability, then he/she should return this kit in new, unassembled, and

109 mm
13 mm
a. Build the oil-filled steering damper & servo linkage as shown on the diagram. The initial factory
setting of the steering servo linkage (with damper) is 109mm without pressing or extending
between each two ends. Any time the damper is removed or dissembled, this distance should be
checked to ensure proper operation of the steering damper. Measure the length of the outer
spring within 13mm from the adjustable collar to the bottom of the damper when finished.
b. Pop the cap of the damper onto the standoff ball on the steering servo horn.
c. Pop the tie-end onto the standoff ball on to the steering mount to complete the steering system.
Low Speed Handling Setting
If the bike will not run straight at low speed, reset the length of the steering turnbuckle to 109mm or
re-fill the oil inside the damper with lower grade oil (Initial set up of oil: #400)
High Speed Handling Setting
If you find the front wheel is getting vibration or unstable at high speed, re-fill the damper oil with
higher grade oil (Initial set up: #400), this will improve the high speed handling, but may effect the
low speed cornering or stability.
Optional Steering Servo Linkage
a. The original damper has to be removed from the motorbike.
b. Build the steering damper as shown in the diagram.
c. Fill the aluminum damper with silicon shock oil (Suggested silicon oil : #400) up to the top of the
damper body.
d. Slowly move the piston up and down to release the air bubbles. Let the damper sit for a while to
allow any remaining air bubbles to surface.
e. Slowly thread the upper cap with shock bladder onto the damper body. And then tread the
aluminum shaft adjust mount into the plastic tie-end
f. With the servo at neutral, loosen the aluminum shaft adjust mount with a 1.5mm hex wrench.
Insert the damper shaft into the adjust mount. Then, manually move the shaft to keep length of
the whole damper with tie end within the 109mm length with the spring slightly compressed

linkage, repeat step 2a . To get the rear wheel parallel and achieve correct tension of the rear
drive chain, detach the 2.5mm screw on the rear end of the swing arm. Use you finger tip to feel
the best set-up of the tension of drive chain. The ideal set-up is around 2 mm range of
movement up and down. (Note: The rear tire and the swing arm must be parallel, if not, loosen
the 2.5mm screw on the right side of swing arm to parallel the rear wheel with the rear swing
arm.)

RADIO OPERATION
The RX battery pack and charger must be purchased seperately
The RX battery pack must be fully charged before running the
motorbike.
For best results, let the RX battery pack cool before charging.
Heat may prevent the batteries from charging to full capacity and
also decreases the performance of the batteries.
Once the batteries are ready to be charged, first plug the A/C
charger into the outlet of AC power source, then plug your RX
battery pack in the charger.(The charging time is about 10-hours.
For fast charging, you may purchase one peak detection fast
charger in the hobby shop for your convenient use.)
Continue to monitor the battery as it is being charged. As soon as
the battery is fully charged, disconnect the charging jack from the battery.
Warring: NiMh battery pack must be recycled or disposed of properly. Do not short circuit the RX
batter pack. This may cause burns and damages to your battery pack. Never leave charging
batteries unattended.

c
b
a. When using your model, always ensure the transmitter is switched on first.
b. Then, turn on the receiver. When turning off, first turn the receiver off, then the transmitter.
c. To reverse the functions of servos, use the small, white servo reverse switches located on top of
the pistol transmitter (or the inset servo reverse switches located at the center of the stick
transmitter). To trim the servos on pistol transmitter, use the large, trim levers on top and side of
the steering wheel (the top trims steering, and the side trims throttle/brake). On a stick
transmitter, the trim levers are located accordingly around the sticks

OPERATING RADIO - STEERING FUNCTION
a
c
b
Due to its unique steering system, the following advises for the controlling should be noted,
a. First, flip the steering servo reverse switch (see 9c). The steering is basically accomplished by
changing the center of body gravity, not the turning of the forks. With the radio transmitter and
receiver on, turn the steering wheel/stick to the right. The body leans towards the right side (The
front tire/wheel should turn left ), the chassis follows, leaning to the same side. If not, flip the
steering servo reverse switch again
b. Return the steering wheel/stick to neutral. The front tire/wheel should point straight forward. If
not, use the steering trim lever to correct it.
c. Turn the steering wheel/ stick to the left. The front tire/wheel should turn right.

a. Check the radio throttle/brake functions. With the radio transmitter and receiver on, pull the
trigger/push the stick forward. The carburetor should be fully opened and the brake disengaged.
To check the brake is not engaged, simply spin the wheel whilst pulling the trigger/pushing the
stick forward. To reverse this function, flip the throttle/brake servo reverse switch.
b. Return the trigger/stick to neutral. The carburetor should be closed to a point where the idle has
been set (see step for ADJUSTING THROTTLE/BRAKE LINKAGE), and the brake still
disengaged. If not, use the throttle/brake trim lever to correct it.
c. Push the trigger/pull the stick backward. The carburetor opening should still be the same at
neutral, throttle spring compressed slightly, and the brake engaged.

The DUCATI 999R GP motorbike is equipped with a rear disc brake that bolts on between the rear
wheel and the rear swing arm. The rear brake system is preset at the factory. As the brake material
wears, you may need to replace the brake pad (see spares list) and future adjustments may be
necessary.
a. To set the throttle/brake linkage, first the radio should be on and set to neutral; thus, the servo is
at neutral position.
b. With the servo at neutral, adjust the tension of the brake wire to a point where the brake lever
almost engages the brake system.
c. With the servo at neutral, loosen the throttle lever collars with a 1.5mm hex wrench. Then,
manually close the carburetor, and set the collar (next to the spring) with the spring slightly
compressed. Then, set the other collar next to the linkage pivot.
Replacing the rear brake pads
d. If the brake pads are worn or damaged and need replacing, loosen the two bolts on the rear
brake pads using a 2mm hex wrench. Carefully detach the brake pads from rear brake mount.
Please note that there are very small retaining springs between the pads that will be needed
when rebuilding.
e. Re-mount the new pads with the tiny retaining springs between the pads onto the rear brake
mount.Sandwich the brake disc between the brake pads. Push the inner rear brake pad firmly
against the brake disc and tighten the brake bolts until just barely touch the brake pads. The gap
between the two brake pads and the disc should be 0.3mm.

a. Idle adjustment screw: To set the carburetor idle (smaller needle sticking out from the
carburetor body), you can remove the lower body or just insert a 0.5mm/1/8inch Flat-head
screwdriver from the opened front end to turn the screw as pictured. Initial idle setting should
leave 1mm carburetor gap. Clockwise turn will provide higher idle (larger carburetor opening),
and counterclockwise turn will provide lower idle (smaller carburetor opening).
b. High speed needle valve: Insert a 0.5mm/1/8inch Flat-head screwdriver into the adjusting hole
on the right side of lower carb body. To set the high speed needle (large needle sticking out from
the carburetor body), turn the screw as pictured. Initial high speed needle setting should be 2.5
turns (close the needle completely, then back out 2.5 turns). Clockwise turn will provide leaner
setting (lower fuel to air mixture), and counterclockwise turn will provide richer setting (higher
fuel to air mixture). Please refer to ENGINE BREAK-IN/SETTING procedures to properly set the
engine.
c. Low speed needle: Remove the upper car body. To set the low speed needle (The low-speed
mixture screw is located in the end of the carburetor).turn the screw as pictured. Initial low speed
needle setting should be 6 1/2 turns (close the needle completely, then back out 6.5 turns). This
screw controls how much fuel enters the engine at idle and low throttle. This adjustment will
smooth the idle and improve the acceleration to mid speed. Make this adjustment with the
throttle closed, after setting the idle. Turn the screw clockwise gently until it stops. DO NOT over
tighten.
d. Air filter set up: This model is provided with a foam air filter. It is recommended that a few drops
of oil be applied to the foam to ensure no dust can get into the carburetor. However, too much oil
will reduce the airflow into the carb and affect the engines performance. Ensure the air filter is
sercurely in place by fixing it in place with a small 'zip tie' at the base of the rubber mount.

a. Squeeze the air out of the bottle, then insert the fuel tubing into fuel container and draw fuel into
the fuel bottle. The fuel used should be methanol based model engine glow fuel (available at
hobby shops) with 10% to 20% nitro content and 5% to 18% caster/synthetic oil content for
lubrication.
b. Pull up the fuel tubing mounting on the steering pivot. (Green tubing-Transferring fuel to the fuel
tank). Then connect with the nozzle of the fuel tubing of the fuel bottle.
c. Squeeze the fuel bottle to fill fuel tank with glow fuel. When finish, re-mount the green fuel tubing
onto the long set screw on the steering pivot.

f
a. To start an engine, remove the red glow plug wire, then use the supplied glow plug wrench to
remove the glow plug and gasket from the engine.
b. Check the glow plug by plugging it into the glow plug igniter. The glow plug element should light
up brightly. If it lights up dimly, then the glow plug igniter is low (and it needs recharging). If it
does not light up or the plug element looks distorted, then the glow plug is bad (replace with new
one). After checking, reinstall the glow plug. Reconnect the glow plug wire onto the glow plug.
c. With the radio off, manually turn the servo to open the carburetor (open throttle).
d. Plug the tuned pipe exhaust tip.
e. Keeping the exhaust tip plugged, start the engine. Keep doing it until fuel reaches engine's
carburetor, then keep on rotating the hex shaft 2 more seconds to prime the engine.
f. Manually return the servo back to neutral.
16
STARTING THE ENGINE
a
c
b
d
a. Turn on the radio (transmitter first, then receiver).
b. Clip the glow plug igniter onto engine's dummy glow plug.
c. Press on the engine shaft starter until the engine starts. Throttle maybe required to be opened
momentarily, but release throttle back to neutral immediately after the engine starts. Remove the
glow plug igniter from dummy glow plug after engine has started and warmed up. If the engine
stops right after the igniter is removed, the carburetor setting is too rich. Please refer to engine
setting section.
UNFLOOD AN ENGINE
d. If engine shaft starter becomes hard to rotate, then the engine maybe flooded. To un flood an
engine, flip the motorbike upside down, then use a hex wrench (2mm) to insert into the hex
screw upon the clutch bell and rotate the engine crank clockwise 3-5 turns(or manually rotate
the clutch bell) to blow the excess fuel from the tuned pipe. (Note: Detaching the glow plug is
unnecessary.) Use the hex shaft to start engine again following the engine starting procedure.
13
17
ENGINE BREAK-IN
For a new engine (break-in setting), the high speed needle needs to be set as rich as possible.
Turn the high speed needle 1/4 turn counterclockwise from initial setting (2.5 turns from fully
closed). Repeat step 17b. Keep doing this until the engine stalls at full throttle, then turn the high
speed needle 1/4 turn clockwise. Run the car in an open parking lot with this rich engine setting for
at least 5 tanks of fuel to complete the break-in process. It is normal for a new engine to stall during
this due to the rich setting. When it does, just restart the engine. After break-in, follow the ENGINE
SETTING procedure to set the carburetor for normal operations.
ENGINE SETTING
Due to different fuel formula, operating elevation, humidity . . . etc., the engine may/may not
operate properly at initial setting. Please follow the following procedure to achieve proper
carburetor setting. Do not perform this procedure until the engine has been properly broken in.
a. Start the engine.
b. With a running engine, run the bike back and forth in a straight line (full throttle achieved in each
pass) in an open parking lot. Repeat and note the sound of the exhaust. Do not hold the throttle
open with the bike of the ground as this may cause the con rod to break.
c. If the exhaust does not reach a high pitch note, turn the high speed needle (long needle,
extending from carburetor body, pointing up) 1/4 turn clockwise, and repeat step 17b.
d. Repeat step 17c until the engine reaches optimum setting (turning in the high speed needle will
no longer have an effect at full throttle and turning out the needle will cause the engine's full
throttle rpm to drop a little). For normal operations, turn the high speed needle 1/4 turn
counterclockwise from the optimum setting.
e. To set the idle, turn the idle screw in (higher rpm) or out (lower rpm). Basically, the idle needs to
be set at the lowest possible point before the engine stalls.
f. To set the low speed needle (inside the throttle lever), the engine needs to be broken in and high
speed needle needs to be set first.
g. Repeating step 17b every 10 seconds (1 second full throttle and 10 seconds idle). If the engine
rpm at idle drops after a few seconds and stalls, then turn in the low speed needle (clockwise)
1/4 turn. If the engine rpm stays the same or goes up at idle, then turn out the low speed needle
(counterclockwise) 1/4 turn.
h. Keep repeating step 17g until the engine rpm drops (goes to idle rpm, then drops a few more
rpm after a few seconds) but does not stall.
18
OPERATION TIPS
19
MAINTENANCE AFTER RUNING
a. Hold the transmitter with one hand, finger on throttle.
b. With the other hand hold the bike. And then give it throttle while you push the bike a little. The
motorbike goes away in a straight line. Then you reach for the steering control and the fun begins.
c. When cornering, slow down the speed to make the turn easier then re-apply the power on the way out
of the curve.
d. If the bike falls due to loss of balance, the side guard wire will support and prevent the body from
scraping.
e. To continue the motorbike's running, technically give it a slightly more throttle to help the motorbike
back to the balanced running.(Note: Do not give the throttle too much as this will create a spin.)
1. Always turn off the radio system and unplug the battery pack when not using the bike. Remove the
battery pack when storing the bike
2. Ensure the bike is cleaned down before the bike is stored for any period of time.
3. Ensure all fuel is removed from the fuel tank before bike is stored away.
