Thanks D for your response

I do have the 2.5mm install is 2.5mm inside the ball (stiffer)

I have the new MID position that will change from LT to mid position before LB, I might use this change to see.

I do need more on power steering

I am already using the new servo saver and it works beautiful. I have Shorten the lower from arm to 1mm but have not installed it jet.

Well, one thing about that old "Tech Elite" you're referring to did not get the latest 710 kit. Our friend the ever hip Uncle Crash (another Tech Elite) did up one last week with a new batch of the 710 and check out what he found in the kit;

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


BTW, u sure about the 0.5mm spacers for the fr roll ctr? Too thin no?

I have that black anodised flywheel and I really like it ... smooth engagements and when you service all you need to do is wipe it with your thumbs and its back to a polish finish!

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
What about yourself? Are you going to be there?

Hi,

I race Nitro all season long and in the winter I race EP, and a few indoor Nitro races.

I will give Salven a change, by not coming to that race

I'll be there too but just to watch. The UK was only allowed 25 drivers and there's over 100 in the queue!

Default Servo Saver

I am going to install the new (longer) servo saver lever this weekend and just wanted to know if there were any special modifications I will need to make or do I just install it like the original?

Thanks

You will need to make the steering link between the servo and servosaver a little longer, and reset your end-point settings on the transmitter.
