Actually for a sandy road shaft car would be better the 710 likes nice clean circuits.

Either car is good, I've never had a belt car give trouble in adverse conditions. I prefer them for easier cleaning and maintenance.

I heard alot of people said the FW-05RR gears not durable, is it true?and the top speed not so good? I guess i'll go for Serpent 710, about the engine, Used Novarossi 5 port modified engine good? Already ran about a gallon of fuel. not sure which model, The price is quite cheap. Is the engine durable for top speed?

710 ball diff is not consistent thats why they use gear diff nowsday, Even that also they have some minor issues, i just wonder no one mention it here.

and also don't forget 710 has some gear matching issues.

more importantly choose the car base on you parts at your LHS.

enjoy racing..

only the 16 pinion gave some problems. Just buy the steel version.
