Ummm... The older one was 2.7 mm if I'm not mistaken. The newer ones are 0.5 mm thicker... (3.2 mm)

That's nice ! I could see Uncle Crash's eyes were envious on the orange seals on mine...

BTW, good summary Bro.
Sorry, after Pyramid input... it was not 100% correct.
About longer wishbone and thicker rear CF tower is not inside every kit. Maybe im just a lucky one.

We're flying on Wednesday evening. So we'll have 2 full days ahead of us for PRACTICE !

D, you've been there.. hows the track surface?
Track surface is fantastic. I believe the surface is sealed and very smooth. Very easy on tires. For me, it's a driver's track. When I was there, most predominantly use Ellegi 40 shore tires and some even 37 shore.

Don't know if it's the same at JITC. Hope to be there someday. Perhaps those Singapore guys who had been to the Futaba Cup in JITC as well as the FEMCA open at Srinakarin would know...

Believe me... Most will already be there by Wednesday. Last year, I only had 1 full day of practice (Friday) and it was too tight for my liking. First, to familiarise the track and secondly, to set the car up... I asked around and most were already there early in the week ! Now they really know how to enjoy RC !

BTW, I believe MrChan mentioned that the track layout will change a little from the last time. But the deadly chicane will still be there according to MrChan.

Below are some old pics...

Last year was different though...the 710 was NEW to everyone, so 1 day was really too short to get your car dialled...now most drivers would have already know the car inside out, it's more of getting used to the track and atmosphere....An All Asian lineup of Snake Charmers...

Yeah... We got a racing culture shock when we got there... I remember during practice day on Friday, the driver's stand was constantly full the whole day from morning till 7 in the evening ! 1/8th and 1/10th mixed !
