That was the best angle to see the block from Unfortunately you don't see it too well when the engine is in the car.

You should center that ARB, it seems to be to the right too much. If the levers are not in the same angle, the ARB will get tweaked when the suspension is compressed.

You car is even cleaner than mine! Why? WHY? WHYYY?
I wanted to be best at something...

Correct. RDlogics items for the 710 and MTX3 are repackaged 3 Racing.

Some of the best are the Futaba 9550 they are small and light and provide more than enough torque for the 710.

Just about to install them

Sparksy, thanks for that info. I sort of heard the same thing but wasn't sure. It sounds like a marketing ploy to detract from the dubious reputation.

I've had the 3Racing CVD's in my car for months and have not had a single problem with them. Sure i'd like Serpent to get Hudy to make some better one's but until then these work just fine. What I wouldn't do is recommend them to a novice as they will not take a lot of punishment.

B4, what kind of track(s) do you drive? Are you saying that they do last provided a certain way of driving is used?

Default New Servo Lever

Anybody ever try that?
The measurement is 3mm deeper(or longer) and about 1.5mm narrower.
In theory it should make our weapon unbeatable in fast sweeper but a bit suffer in very low speed corner.
What do you think ?

I have driven the 710 on fast open tracks and also some slow one's with pvc piping to mark the track out, also raced at one track with concrete about 100mm high down one side of the main straight. I hit this once and the car did a wheel stand and still no damage to the CV.

Not yet but I imagine with so much less ackerman that the cornering speed must be a lot higher!
