D is correct, but I have bad news mark...

The bronze pinions are rubbish, throw them in the bin
There are alot of 710 drivers that I know here or race with and we have all found the same thing the bronze pinion wears very quick. I ran one about 3 months ago and now they have release new silver pinions which are the best out of the 3. Ran it for 5 race meets so far and no wear.

I will post a pic soon if you have not seen them, they come in the new orange labelled bag.
Really? I saw Mark Green's car which had these bronze colored ones and it seemed fine.

This must be the latest batch. Wonder if the 16T story is fixed with this batch.

Mind you, D's fomula for running 16-60 works fine. I must have done a bunch of tanks to the point the pinion is now worn sharp and still no stripping.

I wonder if this is what hapenned to one of the Serpent drivers in the Semis .. he lost first gear apparently. There ya go ... another Serpent driver who didn't listen to the prophet!

It also being reported the he is privateer which is in fact he is fully sponsored directly from Kyosho Singapore (ToyKar)via World Hobbies that claimed as Kyosho Indonesia (according to the owner). Sure it's not factory driver but I think 'they' should start offering by now

How many times should it be mentioned that it's the FORCE / RING...

Case in point, some strip the 61T spur with the 16T pinion and some don't !

I know. Was just interested if there were any 710 drivers at the WC who was using a Sirio WC edition... Or was the WC edition strictly for the Kyoshos...

Why no escape? If she's interested in the car then when you no longer wants her around start the car up and let it go on its own like a runaway. she'll be chasing the car ... not you then!
