Default Re: Solution to Alu Anti-Rollbar Arms

After installing the alu anti-rollbar arms onto my new 710 and finding that the arms were binding just the same as on my original 710, I decided to take more drastic action this time.

With my original 710, I followed Crashed's advice and lossened the hinge pin grub screws on the front lower arms - worked perfectly, but then the hinge pins move around during a run, so the solution wasn't optimal.

This time, I took the bull by-the-horns and drill out the hole for the hinge pins in the alu anti-rollbar arms. The hole is already 3mm, but I think the tolerance is a little bit tight. After letting a 3mm drill bit slide through the hole a couple of time, I remounted the arms and found that there is no binding anymore There is also no additional play on the arms, so it seems to be a safe and effective fix.

Cheers, Mark.
Mark, I did exactly the same with my alu roll thingy. Removed the anodizing and VOILA!!!...

What can i say, great minds think alike...

1. Rear shocktower with old design (gives you opportunity to throw it back to Serpent )
2. New Diff clamp for rear diff
3. Additional 1.2mm shock pistons on top of stock 1.0 mm ones
4. Additional 0.5mm spacers for front roll center
5. Old lower rear arms...
6. Reinforced upper and lower bumper brace
7. Black anodised flywheel
Oooh! 1.2mm pistons!! Sounds good to me!!!

Hey crashed, we need a build report from you

My roll things works very well now aswell

Problem is I have no chance to run in my JP FX at the moment And with the winter rapidly aproaching, I may not get another chance before the Winternats

Damn. I wished the last race was recorded. In my opinion, I have not seen a race as interesting as that one. Uncle was really working his way up chasing the and was head to head exchanging positions until he took the main. That was some real nice driving.

Tried to steal the lime light. Well, that race was strange for me. Plagued with engine problems... As always.

Default Winternats Markp27

Hi Mark,

I have read that you're going to race the winternats.
That's great man, the best way to improve your skills is due to drive against all the topguns.

Go there with a new Mega, maybe the team can tune it for you

Good luck there, and enjoy yourself!

Bye Thomas
