What's the optimum tire dia?
As joemugen said you can run them down to 57mm or less and the car seems to like as long as you keep the ride height down also. I can say from my own experience the smaller the tires the better the car handles... on a good track.

Looks very good and very nicely done. Reminds me on those Friday pics we used to have. You deserve a good pat on the back.

BTW, the 710 looks better than the T1 EVO.
thanks D 710 belong to me and i worked on the 710's body more than T1

i'm gonna break in my motor this weekend. i'm plannig to use %20 instead of %16 but i'm not sure. my engine is zx-12 legal and i'll use it just for races, for practice i have an 2102. what do you recommend me? if i use %20, do i have to add shim to the engine head or just fine

BTW, i have a question about foams, i measured diameter of the foams which comes with kit, it's about 65 mm. should i make it 62 mm for standart setup before put my car on the track? does it makes big difference?

thanks

It's strange. Sometimes I find my ordinary belt also wants to slip out with a front diff. But now, I don't find that problem even when I run with that flange collar from the oneway front pulley. Perhaps it's slightly got to do with the front bulkhead alignment or the ecentric cam...

Concerning the PRO belts, I would use them on a clean track but the track we run on tends to have pebbles here and there. So far I'm very happy with my standard kevlar belts. All 3 belts have not been changed since early January this year. And most of all, I particularly like using the 6361 from the front of the Vector / 950 1/8th scale belt as rear belt.
Thanks, I'll try that.

I guess "some people" watch very closely on "some other people" 710 in recent Thailand Nitro Tour.
Great response !
