Any mod. required for a 705 chasis to be used in an impulse? Any one experience?

There are others who mount the flyweight as per the manual but add one M3 x 4 grub screw on the end of the flyweight.

Anyway, as what Pyramid mentioned, I found the performance using two grub screws per flyweight a little too "heavy" for my liking and at some points will drag and bog the clutch engagement.

So now, I took out all the grub screws and run the cut flyweights just mounted in between the flyweight pins.

Steering has improved since I used it. Only did a few tanks so can't say for sure yet. But initial feel is that steering is more "predictable". Turn in is also better, I feel...
I reduced the steering travel a bit after installing the longer servo saver and the car turns well and less likely to lose it's rear end. Just my opinion...

And the friction collar that came with the servo arm is a lot better than the stock one. I managed to find an extra collar for my rear diff too...

No idea. I would think the X brace and the engine mountings would be different to cater for the Impulse radio tray. Front and back would be the same me thinks...

Try putting a coat of *spit* grease on the polished part of the diff axle before putting on the diff collar. That would make the diff setting smoother and more predictable to set.

Like Darth Vader said (may the force be with you), you get more steering. It is best used when you have a high speed sweeper as the cornering speed increases because of the less Ackerman.

If you can get countersunk ones, that would be good. Use the countersunk shims with the countersunk screws and you solve the problem.

The thing is it's difficult to even get M4 size titanium screws. I wonder if the East titanium screw set for 710 has those screws in titanium or do they only include M3 screws in titanium...

D, you got time to do an experiment for me? If you do, could you do the following:

remove the metal shielded bearings and end-play shims from you clutch.

Now add shims to the thrust bearing carrier until it can no longer be pushed/pulled. Using your verniers, measure the shims which had to be added to achieve this and compare with your measured clutch gap.

Cheers, Mark.

I could actually use some for my second 710 - but I need a new chassis for it first
