Are they the front roll centre spacers? Can't see what else they would be.

Cheers, Mark.

Yes, but if you are using the Airtronics receiver, you have to cut the extra part on the Futaba connector to plug it in. If you are using Spektrum system with ur m11 then no mod needed.

Thanks Markp27.. Those tips were covered in building the car... I've been in this hobby for awhile... I've driven Mugen, AE NTC3 and Mongoose-G4... I know every car has it's +'s & -'s.... ie. strong points and weak points... Area's that could be bullet proof and area's to watch out for... Could have been a bad batch of steering knuckles... The car is build right and drives great... I'll figure this one out... Thanks again and I'm looking forward to seeing those pics...

The m11 stock receiver will work, just you have to cut that piece off the futaba connector to plug in. But if u dont feel like doing the mod you will need to use other aftermarket receiver or modules. Novak and LRP both make high performance receivers, Spektrum system is getting more and more popular due to its convenient features and work just as well. Hope this helps.

Yes they are.. I was using two spacers together right below the deck and a team driver told me to remove one and put a 1mm spacer. When I came home I found that I had these optional spacers from RD Logics that came with the car. The purple ones are 3mm, gold 1mm and the stock ones are 2mm. I really don't think its for looks since they are different sizes.

Check your setup guide on page 17, it will explain what the positioning of the spacers will do to your roll centre.

Is the chassis on the 710 suppose to be completly flat? I put it on a flat surface and it titer toters on the middle...

edit: oops I guess if I assemble the upper deck first that will help straighten it out...right????

My results were not that good, but for first time out with a new ride I was pretty happy. I think I can be faster (in time) with this car than my NTC3. Just wish I had changed earlier, the Nationals probably isnt the best place to start with an unfamiliar car.
where did yah get the shocks from, CMC ?
how much ?
thanx Ray
ps cyah at the track
