Yes, the rear as well as the front of the 710 consist of more smaller parts that make up what used to be a single part on say the 705. It does not make the 710 heavier I think.

On power it is like oneway. But braking is excellent. You can drive the car more agressively with a solid front knowing full well that you can brake at the last minute.

Mark is right about steering wise. Most of the time, you need to set the car for a solid front to compensate the lack of off power steering into corners.

You're right. I think you should put a small note below the link to say that you can only access and download the file if you're registered on mytsn.

Heck, you can put the instruction in German. That would limit it to only those who can only read German (ahem ) that are able to download them.

But only when the wheels are pointing straight ahead - otherwise only the slowest wheel is driven.

I wrote the following on the 415 forum a little while ago - maybe useful for those who haven't dealt with a one-way before:

In the middle of the straight I felt the car suddenly veering to the right at top speed. I knew something snapped ...

It went into the grass at top speed also because I'm to cocky and thought that I could bring it back to continue with the race. A-ah .. nein, no ...

if there is a referal thingy for discounts, tell em "shima" from [G]eneral Mayhem sent you!

anyways back to some question i have regarding 710:

1. is rear section of the car relatively integral, ie. do the parts interlock to create stiffer sectioning? reason i ask is that the R40 does this but in a manner that just adds weight.

also, does the front one-way locked into a solid axle make the car react better to short track? thanks.

tranced ... thanks, I'll look into them also. I'm spending time this time to find a good one. Can't afford a similar hiccup as each time this happens, a lot of work goes up in smoke.

To question 1, I think yes ... just enough interlock, nothing overkill.

If you have a short track and it has hard braking points, definitely ... a locked front one way would work very well.

Default 710 at the US Nationals

I just came back from gas sedan nats. Berry and McNally put 2their 710's in the A, and there was more in B and C. Berry finished 6th and Mcnally was doing well until his car broke down. Brandon bumped up from the B to make the A, and he was driving very good. I have pics of their cars prepped for the main with the new megas. The cars performed very well all weekend and the new mega 12's had plenty of power, enough to pull others on the strait. We were fighting traction rolling all weekend, Brian used solid front axle and mcnally used one way, pretty much everyone used the new rear sway bars 3mm and 2.5mm to help. Thanks to Art Carbonell and Rene Cornella for helping us out.
