Hey Bro Mark, I think you can still repair and use that chassis if only the front part where the bumper is bent. From the pic, I see that only the front part of the chassis is bent just before the front bulkhead.

Also, check on the receiver pack and perhaps the tank. On a bad crash like that, I would try to resoulder the receiver pack.

This is what Paolo mentioned;

HSN: 5 1/2 turns
LSN: 2 turns

I have the S100003......Racing pack S710
Is this set including longer rear bottom arms
I will measure today!
Must change arms anyway
Great idea about the longer pivotballs

Thanks InitialD

I was thinking it would be re-useable, but there is actually a crack through the chassis, which you can't see on the picture No, I'm afraid I'll have to sell it on Ebay

I'll check the pack - I will be checking the tank, though - I was thinking the same as you.

Need to get a list of parts I need

I think this pack should already include those new lower rear arms.

I use the longer pivot balls including the newer arms. Bullet proof.

Something else, I do, is to place 1mm spacers on the wheel hexes, therefore, the pivotballs are screwed in 1mm further than normal on my car.
This also allows you to quickly tune the track width of your car, as you can very easily change a 1mm space for a 0.5mm spacer or even remove them. This allows for an instant 200mm->199mm->198mm change.

Cheers, Mark.

Do you use the steel ones - I have some of the same material as the normal ones, but they are longer - don't know the part number anymore, though

808346. These are steel ones and they are longer.

Do you mean to say that you have the same aluminum ones but longer dimension?

Be carefull with those. They are from the 705. They have a thin peice between the thread and the ball, like the steel version. They snap in a crash....

Ok, thanks for the info - I thought the 705 used the same ones as the 710?
I think the ones I was using were destroyed in the crash
