I can do it in the 3pk, but before it hits the track I need to dissasemble the arm and cut a 1/8 inch of plastic off to shorten it..


my cars are usually totally put together and torn down two or thre times before run just so I am sure I am happy with it..

II hope I can get it to run like the 705 did, As the car was nearly perfect.. minus bowing up a few motors and never finishing a qual last year.. It will be incredably hard to go any faster then we were last year but hey if it is better I am game at that too, but there is no break through tech here as far as I see.. has some similar things to the original yok that came out in 99( rear uprights) the roll center adjustment is long over due, granted I think it is a better car I am not sold as it being something totaly special yet.. in my exp at the top level the field is pretty darn level.....

p/s: Why is the throttle linkage from the carb to the servo horn very long?
That's a tuning secret i think Mop is experimenting by connecting the throttle linkage to the steering servo! and hell will break lose everytime the car turns left but stops in its track when turns right! or is it the other way round?

Yes, there were a couple of 710. Did not race because the car was not ready yet. Still had teething problems then.

They changed the layout and it had more of the shorter straights. With a stock gearing suited for a track like Seremban 2, you'll be more likely to overshoot in the corners when the 2nd gear hits as the track layout was different . Even more so with a one way front !

I heard that somebody managed to get the B main champ with a 710 but used the solid front.

Cool ! No need programming from the 3PK to do all this !

The rear uprights are nothing. It just allows you to change camber independently from the rear trackwidth which I manage to do on my 705 with some dremel work !

Then again, just drive the car and you'll know what I mean. More responsive on the throttle, acceleration is mind boggling, corner speed is excellent and you get to go on the gas faster out of the corners. How can this not be better?

Cool. I guess you already got your 710 assembled? If you have a machine shop, the holes in the one way driveshaft adaptors can be done.

Woow. This is excellent.

Yeah, I took a look at it. It looked like the flat spots for the grub screw mounting of the pulley adaptors are about the same area. Just the hollow mid shaft (808253) of the 705/835 is a little longer. Nothing a dremel cannot do.

I also want to add that you can use the Hudy spring steel 801214 Wheelaxle front PRO for the 705 for all the wheel axles in the 710.

I also found that the engine mounts of the 710 are the same as the ones on the 705 except one is 15 mm and the other is 1 mm lower.

I have not checked the mounting positions of the grub screw flat spots on the 9632 hollow 2 speed main layshaft but the overall lenght is the same as the one on the 710. I guess with some drilling and grinding, you may be able to use the hollow shaft on the 710.

If they are uneven left and right it may be a tweak in the sway bar.
Julius: Thank you for your response. I have got the front droop to be the same with and without the shocks, the rear the left side is 1mm less with the shocks attached, I will check the tweak today and see if that helps.

check your shock lengths.. make sure they are the same. the only way to have less droop after instaling shocks is if one is shorter than the droop allows, must have a lot of droop to allow that though.. are you at 7 above chassis or below?

D, sometimes its just best to race it like Mark G did. Then one finds out tetthing problems too.

Its about time they do different layouts there. I think most drivers, beginners included, were already driving with their eyes closed because they're so familiar with it!

I think I know who that was.

clutch bell & pinion gears

None of the various special tools cluttering up my tool box will hold the clutch bell while tightening the pinion gears. In the past I've torqued them on tight with lock tight, so they wouldn't loosen with deceleration (other cars). So I wound up holding the bell in my hand and using the plastic gear holders to tighten them, and hope the engine will finish the job.
Any other suggestions?
