Its almost worth coming over to the UK, buy a new kit, join one of our races and then go home with a "used" 710 (so the Swedish customs can't moan!).

What? Where?

And the only reason you can see anything at all is because YOU have my microscope!

We just need to wait and see. Serpent are normally good to keep the card very close.

rccobra705
Yup, VERY close.

just out of curiousity, why would you pay $665 for the 710 instead of buying from Japan, say rc-mushroom or one of them shops? just curious, $665 seems very expensive!!! (do they ship to sweden)

That's old news and who knows when that will come out. Besides there is another nitro F1 in the making ... 1/10th scale and VERY nice looking. On the other hand , this one is also old news.

Fulcrum, where are you coming from? Are you preparing for the upcoming Euros in the UK?


Thanks for your reply! I´m from Germany, and was just curious about the EFRA rules. In Germany we use the so called DMC rules and I just want to check where the differences are.
Thanks for the link!

Default Read-end assembly

Hi,

I'm having a very hard time assembling the read-end of the car.. i alwasy have to fiddle with it to get the arms moving freely.. now i think it is wearing out a little, but we all have to agree that the read-end of the car is an enormous complex peace of work...

Have any of you had problems building it, or having problems with the downstops and/or staby being 'tweaked'? It's really driving me mad!

Check that your rear track width is 200mm - having it too narrow can lead to such problems.
Also if the pivot ball caps are on too tight, this would lead to the arms not dropping freely - check these first.

Other than that, check in the FAQ, where Julius describes how to better assemble the rear end.

Cheers, Mark.

..Or you can order it in Hong Kong and kindly ask RC-Mushroom to mark it as a gift worth 50 USD

May not be an electric car but.... if there is 1/10GP from Xray, Serpent SB960 might be a good name for their buggy
