I don't know if there is any way to make the 710 behave like a 1/8 scale car. There are so many differences between them:
1/8: .21 engine with outragious horsepower and torque
710: .12 engine with good horsepower and torque
1/8: front one-way, rear solid
710: front diff or one-way, rear diff
1/8: really really fat foam tires, mounted solidly over axles
710: really skinny foam tires, mounted like regular sedan rims
1/8: high-downforce lola body
710: low-downforce sedan body
Did I mention the OUTRAGEOUS speed and horsepower in the 1/8 cars? And the huge tires?
To start, put a really powerful 5-port engine in the 710. Then find a different wheel-mounting system like the larger cars. But this will all make the car non-elligible for racing I believe, and will be very expensive.
200mm class is fun... 1/8 class is SUPER EXCITING !!!
