Put some Mugen Super Grease on a paper tower and rub the 4 mm balls with it so that the grease is lighly coated on the balls. That's the only trick and one of the best tricks yet for this car.
Thanks bro, that is nice and simple tricks
We already told that many times and it seems like that difficulties is still persist creating frustated racer and headache for us..
That is why we asking Serpent to release that option just like they releasing front ball diff. Who knows...that rear diff gear would make this car more competitive, at least someone must try first.
And there will be more happy beginner and less headache

I have too seen couple of 710 owners that either put too much heavy and thick grease or built it incorrectly. One of them even took off the rear bar and adjust the front bar to 90 deg. When asked he said his car were oversteering badly. Go figure.

Bali is different story... after setting tightness and inserting the locking set screw, they tighten the set screw without holding the adjustable screw properly. And he said to me, that this diff is weird "always changing while locking the set screw".
Funny is it ?
While im explaining how to built and set it properly, I receive so many ooooo.... ooooo...

While Pyramid explaining how to buil and set shock properly, he receive so many ha ha.. they react like receive something from the moon..

And they were serious racer

Waiting for number 18, 28 or 38 ! Actually, still waiting for my friends to get up to speed on this !

So Mr. Salven and Mr. Vrielijnck is coming? I see that Mr. Fantini and Mr. Domanin has already registered and you guys are all using Max 15 engines !

Hey, have you tried them on the 710? How's the feeling compared to other mod .12 engines like Max and JP FX? Fuel consumption?

Not yet, that race would be our first time putting .15 to S710. As for fuel consumption, its been suggested to reduce 5.4mm reducer and EFRA pipe to get maximum milage.. which is around 5mins

As long as it's 5 minutes, it should be OK I think since the heats are 10 minutes anyways...

I meant even a serious racer like them still need someone else to show them directly to realize what they think is enough, but actually there is better way to do it.
Lets see this Bali Open result...

While holding the two outdrives the pulley should not turn at all. Correct? Now how much force do you use to try to turn the pulley?

If the pulley does turn that means the diff is too loose. If you try to drive the car in this condition will the car pull to the right under acceleration and go left under braking?

Didn't mean to step into GoldFinger's shoes but you gotta put an effort to make that pulley slip while holding the outdrives.

OK, only if traction is extremely high.
Usually slight turning (but your finger hurt a bit ) is a nice start.
