Good observations Julius ! That is actually temporary until I can get hold of M3 countersunk allen screws that would be long enough to fit through the spacer behind the shock towers.

Should not be a problem if I set the shocks straight right?

It looks hollow from the 2-speed side. There is a grub screw inside to hold the pin in position so there is no way it can become jammed between the 2-speed shoes.

Not quite sure what you mean Julius. Are you implying that the kit DOES come with the hollow shaft? (Hence the grub screw explanation?)

Default Who is Mr. D?

For those who have been asking D who he really is then seek and you shall find!

Look carefully at his pics, the brilliantly polished Shark pipe might just reveal who he is!

I just spend 5 minutes to CAD out the idea of the steering linkage diagram that I don't quite understand completely...so you guys can tell us (and me) what exactly should we position the servo horns and the right linkage length....I don't have the 710 yet, but I would like to address this problem now so I don't have to dig out these thread when I start building the kit in may 2004...

From my 14 years of RC experience, I always believe the servo horn setting MUST BE positioned 90 degree perpendicularly align with the Servo linkage, NOT to the servo position if we want to maintain the equal amount of LEFT and RIGHT steering travel.....but I can be wrong, since the servo position itself is in angle, but I am very much sure the Diagram "A" should be the one to use......about the length of the linkage, you guys who got the 710 should post the right dimension here.

Cool

I believe Julius already address this............It depends on what (witch brand) of servo you are using. As long the epa is close to where you need it.


However, nice job on the CAD and your question because I will be in the same boat as you in Spring 2004 when I get my 710.

I want to ask the same question too...that polished pipe look very familiar, the shape, the color and the finishes.......not sure where I've seen that, but I think that particular piece of equipment that I was thinking are required some "batteries" opperated and it is not designed for RC use....it is for....ah, I am not sure I should say it here.....LOL
