The only time Ahmad did not win was the time he drove his 710 (dogbones poppin,stripped spurs..).All his wins are won by 705
Stripping spurs? Does anyone have a problem with that here? I think it's simply a matter of setting the mesh correctly. Too tight/ too loose and you will strip one... I set mesh by listening: I set it real tight first, then rotate it/loosen it untill I don't hear the grinding noise anymore. Never stripped a spur unless a pebble messes things up!
Losing dogbones? Never! And thats with the 808220 dogbones which are 1mm shorter and 198mm width. I haven't ran the front diff yet, but with the one-way all I need is a bit of fuel tubing. Also put some fuel tubing in the wheel axle like Julius/InitialD said so the dogbones don't get caught in the wheel axle slots with max steering and they will not break either!
Sure the 710 isn't perfect, no car is... But with some brains and the help of this thread and the great people visiting and complementing it, your 710 can be near-perfect!
At least mine is... all it needs is a good driver
