As some of you may know I grew up racing motocross. I spent every moment of every day living, breathing, and dreaming motocross. As I got a little older, 2 plates, 4 screws, 2 titanium rods, 2 bone grafts, and 1 wheelchair later…it has occurred to me that while motocross is an amazing sport, it can be slightly hard on the body and perhaps not quite as safe as R/C racing. What a wonderful world we would live in if only there were some way to combine the thrill of motocross with safety, fun, and excitement of R/C.
Late last week we received a package in the mail. As I began to open it I realized my dreams had come true…inside this box was a little motocross miracle! Under all the bubble wrap and packing peanuts was the all-new Atomik R/C Metal Mulisha Brian Deegan MM450 1/4 scale dirtbike!

Sacramento, CA – 5/17-5/19 2012
Atomik was in attendance to see and be seen at the season opener of the Lucas Oil Outdoor Pro Motorcross Championship Series. We brought out the new Brian Deegan Metal Mulisha MM450 radio control dirt bike equipped with the gravity defying new E-Gyro Electronic Stabilization System to demonstrate it to the public and media at the event.
The action packed event is held in the beautiful rolling countryside track 30min east of old town Sacramento known as Hangtown. The local motorcycle club called “the Dirt Diggers” hosted the annual event for a crowd of more than 40 thousand spectators packed shoulder-to-shoulder on the hillsides surrounding the track. The track boasts some huge hill climbs and high-speed descents through a variety of obstacles like whoops and jumps, while snaking around the valley course. Lap times are typically in the 2-minute range for most classes and a race is set to go 30 minutes plus 2 additional laps. There are 2 moto’s and the average of your finish in each race will determine your overall finish.
Hey there Atomik fans, this is Jason White from Customer Service.
I just wanted to let everybody know about our new Brian Deegan Metal Mulisha MM 450 RTR RC Dirtbike.
This is a GIANT step in the world of RC.
The first time I drove the new bike, my jaw hit the floor. I have been into RC toys for about 20 years and this new MM 450 made me feel like I was 10 all over again.
We took our VMX 450 and made it even more fun to drive and more capable.
I have received several calls from loyal Venom/Atomik fans worried that their VMX will be outdated and they will no longer be able to get parts. This new MM 450 is based off the same platform as the VMX. Almost every part is interchangeable with the exception of the rear wheel electric gyro. This new electric gyro is what dreams are made of. Our design team made sure that we could upgrade all existing VMX RC Dirtbikes.
This means that by ordering a few parts from Atomik you can transform your old mechanical gyro into a faster, more efficient electric gyro.
Be sure to stay tuned, Atomik and Venom are on the verge of launching some great new products.
Atomik RC is proud to announce its partnership with Brian Deegan and Metal Mulisha.
Over the past year, Brian and the Atomik designers have been developing an exclusive line of Radio Control models that are set to release throughout the summer of 2012. The product line will follow Brian’s career progression from an icon of the freestyle motocross movement, to dominating short course and rally car racing.“We are excited to be in the position to bring these cutting-edge vehicles to market in connection with such an icon of off-road motorsports. Brian Deegan and the entire Metal Mulisha team have been very supportive during the entire process and we vow to follow wherever “The General’s” career moves next,” says Clint Bower, President of Atomik RC.
