Li-Poly? What is that? Where can I get more info?

If the discharge vs time curve looks good then I'll like to get some to plug into my brain ... the part which controls driving skills!

Trying to play Jedi mind tricks on Mark is it?
Driving faster he is. In the force on his right there is disturbance.

I need to meditate more before October.

Correct. But I think that happens only on an ideal situations where you do not get any slipping in the inside wheel which is impossible because the outside wheel gets more pressure than inside wheel due to the turning.
Unless you're in a banked sweeper like the one at AMCC ...

Hey D, whatever OS Mark is using today, its certainly showing its fangs and arguing with the Master!

I agree with you there ... in practice I just nail the throttle! I call it "Binary Driving" ... either brake or WOT!

... subject to available grip, different throttle input (Analog Driving is my term) imparts different centrifugal and centripetal forces which varies weight transfer that proportinally relates to bite side bite/grip of your tyres?

Good point ... which was why NiMo destroyed his 2-speed one-way bearing in his FW05 within one lap of removing his restrictor!

It has nothing to do with end-play or dirty bearings Mark. Its the JP, you really should pass that engine to me so I can check it and ensure that your ceramic bearings never gets harm again.

Hey What's up guys...

I bought a Serpent 710 a couple of weeks ago. But there is only one problem... Where do I put the switch ?? I saw a fellow racer, that had a carbon fiber switch mount, but he told me that it was from the HPI Pro 2. I went into the HPI site, and look through the parts and couldn't find it. What do you recommend me ?

If you intend to race I recommend that you do not use a switch. They're not worth the trouble unless you use one of those electronic switches.

If you insist on using a switch then you can use double sided tape and tape the switch either to the steering servo or on the top deck just above the steering column.

the best solution of all is to read the article written by our Serpent friend Glenn Cauley here.

Another excellent resource is here as well as the 710 GAQ you can dowload from MarkP27's signature.

The best of all is my website but because its so good its offline!

Are they smaller and lighter for the same voltage and capacity (mAh)?

Oh, forgot to mention to you that the pop-up pictures of the underside of the deck (in BlackBook) is not displaying.
