Build quaility is excellent. Let me know when you're actually getting the car. Build the other parts of the car and leave the clutch and the diff later and I'll help you.

You may want to get the solid axle and also ball diff for the front.
Would make the car a lot easier to drive.
The rest of the hop-up parts can some later.

Let D help you modify the Centax clutch so that it engages better.

So when are you getting your car?

You can't beat the 710. My first race with it saw me close to 1 second a lap faster then my CD3 with no changes to set up, with the same engine!!

Is it possible to run with minimum DRS ie. by placing all the DRS spacers at below the arm? I've tried and mine seems to bind with the 2-speed spur.

Thanks
all u nid to do up DRS is a 2.5 tools and a sharper long nose,I just nid 10mnts do it both!
d local KR i v been using it all d while,but with no F&R sway to caters..but it WAS awesome!!

Hey Greg, glad things are working out good for you (two) guys down there. Well, I'll probably be dropping by there for two weeks in NZ for a short holiday. Where about are you and Brett?

Brett's in Auckland and I'm in New Plymouth. With the Worlds next year only across the ditch in Australia, its more than likely both of us will be there. We don't know how many spots NZ will be allocated or even the qualifying procedure at the moment, but if I'm not racing, I'll be there in support of the Kiwi's. Hopefully meet a few of the guys on the board while there.

Waking up with a view of Mt. Taranaki is one of life's little pleasures. Of course, the black sanded beach is unique too.

Very nice place to live ... NZ.

But I think living in NZ plus living about 10 minutes away from the track is even more bliss !

I'm 10 minutes from my track too.

Heading down to Palmerston North this Sunday for a track opening, seems like alot of guys are going. Should be a good meeting, just under 3 hours drive away.

New Plymouth is a great place to live, alot of others are realising it too, our house prices have doubled recently, highest increase in the country. I wouldn't live anywhere else, 5 minutes too work and free parking 100 meters away
