Default missing gear

Yes it is a 35 tooth gear and yes I also have the 45 tooth for rear.Stange it seems.Maybe this is the gear you will need if you install a diff in front as I can,t imagine using it in the rear.

Yes, this is the low profile one. S9451 is stronger as it has 9kg of torque while S9550 is at 6kg and both are metal gears. I've been using S9550 on S705 and it will break your servo horn only on a hard impact (until the front pivot ball came out of front knuckle).. meaning the 6kg of 9550 is more than enough. Or the servo horn is too weak

Schrijver99.. you must put 2mm in between when using S9550 on your 710 and it will not touching the belt. Actually the front belt is already touching carbon upper deck as well as the lower chassis as you could see the smear on its print right after 3 tanks (standard front belt tension setup)

Default Alternative antenna mnt...

When i placed my sanwa rx311 into the rx box, i had to face the crystal and connectors inwards and towards the front of the car.. that meant the antenna wire would exit from the rear and travel to the frnt to use the antenna mount...

Sooo.. i cut a small piece of fibre and made two holes (countersunk the bottom one or there won't be enuff space for the screw head). Dunno about other guys, but i've had 3 cm of extra antenna height make the diff btwn glitching when 9 other antennas are beside me on the stand..

Also, i've always liked these types of antenna mnts.. you can pick up the car by them! (though thats not a good practice..)

No need for superglue round the edges of the graphite.

holy crap, reading this thread is a B.I.G pain for me as my 710 might get delayed a week or so.

From your comments I think you got a front diff gear. Contact your shop or distributer and explain the problem. I'm sure you'll be sent the correct part asap.

The 705 instructions are the same in regards to building the diff and they don't show putting grease on the diff rings.

All it shows is greasing the thrust bearings only?

Can anyone elaborate about setting up the diff. I'm not sure about the part where you tighten the screw. I tighten the screw and while holding both outdrives I try to turn the pulley. I set mine to where you can turn it with some force. After that I use the grub screw to hold it in place.
There is no real need to grease the large rings. If you chose to, then use only very little.

The way you have set the diff is correct. To be sure of the setting check if you need a considerable amount of force to make the diff slip when you try and turn the first gear of the 2-speed while holding the rear wheels.

Any picture available?

Also i've adjusted the servohorn, so that it's 90 degrees with the servo link and not the servo.

Be sure to check if you have the same amount of steering left and right without a big difference in your transmitter. Normally this is the case with the servo horn at 90 degrees to the servo.
