" Oops !!.. "

I don't think this is for the 710.

What gave it away? Was it the fact that it was under the 1/8th products?

I think you have the RING today.

Having said that, I think we have to see how tracks are like in Europe / Holland compared to how other tracks in other parts of the world are like. Perhaps flowing tracks with lots of high speed sweapers prefer the new servo saver due to less Ackerman and less scrubbing of speed whilst smaller tighter tracks in other parts of the world would prefer the SWB mod better... Just perhaps.
I'll have to dig my spy notes out again

I believe I saw a new 16T in the new orange packing the other day at the LHS. Don't know if it is indeed a new revision which may solved the voodoo "issues". But I know the coating / colour is definitely different like what Serpent has hinted earlier.
Did you use the anti-voodoo meshing mod from Pyramid?

Maybe I have to use the 16T this weekend if I haven't forgotten to pack it

Ummm... I say just watch out for Onkel Sow. Make sure he does not put TWO cars out in the track at the same time ! More chances of winning.

Nope. I found that you need to mesh it more tightly first and when the pinion and spurs run in after a while, then they run free and will not strip. Perhaps the engine needs to be slanted very slightly so that it does not interfere with the 2nd gear combo meshing. I could not notice it with my bare eyes but if you would use a caliper of some sort, you could probably tell that the engine is slightly slanted.

No worries. Is the track abrasive? If it's not, get the rollout chart and use a smaller tires to compensate using 17T. You did remember to bring that humongously big and "expensive" Hudy tire truer didn't you?
