Yeah, lap times don't lie. I guess the differences are really small. For me it's just comfort level, having the ability to apply brakes confidently helps a lot especially thru tight hairpins after a long straight. Try the front diffs...use a stiffer front a looser rear setup...

Yeah... Don't worry. I guess it's how consistant you can go around the track. But don't get too much influenced by that Slow&Steady thingy... Does not work.

Well, the being Slow n Steady works for me Certainly on Saturday, I was able to put consistant laps in without any spins due to the brakes. I'll have to get myself a front diff, I think.

Cheers, Mark.

Calvin, Mark is correct. Only ball diff is available. Why do you need a gear diff when you need to mess around with the diff lube when you can tune the ball diff to infinite possibilities on the track without taking off the diff?

And no, the ball diff is pretty bullet proof. Not like some other cars where the diffs will wear out very fast. This is because the ball diffs on the 710 does not use pressure of the balls on the plates to set the diff tightness but rather rely on a plastic clamp system to set the diff tightness. I still have the same rear ball diffs and plates after close to 11 months of usage.

If you have any question, please do not be afraid to shoot.
Thank!

ORANGE tubing ! I think you need to get Mark's trial version of the dirt filter. I see a little bit at the tank. That JP FX engine heatsink also does not do justice. Sell it over to ME and get a new one !

Finally got the 710 and I need to ask a question about assembly. On the rear diff assembly the big c clip is supposed to lock the thrust bearings into place right? In other words I should compress the clip until it snaps into place inside the outdrive, right? Page 9 step 2.3 just for reference. Thanks.

Yup. I believe you need a C clip plier that specifically does that. Or if you do not have it, do like what I did. I used my lexan scissors (with two sharp tips) to compressed them to shape.

BTW, congrats on the new car.

XER987, make sure the conical washer and the thrust bearing (the 2 plates with different inner diameter) is installed correctly as per the manual.

Looking forward to your reply.

Regards,

That would be the `Rev 5` of our black book that is due on first week of January 2005. The most important thing to use gear diff is only to avoid doing more maintanance of ball diff which might help us targeting S710 being used by weekend racers only (in Indonesia at least).
