BY the way, any info on a release date for the Front Defferential ?

I've been following this thread, however, I do not recall seeing anything about a release date.

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.
A little cut off each end and lengthening one of the flats has the hollow shaft fitting very nicely.

Also, Ive been thinking about the front to rear angle of the front shocks. I'm thinking of spacing out the lower ball end to straighten them up a little, and as an added bonus, the top end will have a little more clearance from the carbon fiber. It should hold up ok as I have done it on the 835 to solve the problem it had of the dogbone rubbing the shock springs. Run a fair fer races with it spaced out and have found no drawbacks at this stage.

Still if you look at the Centax II clutchbell housing tool, it only makes use of a single hole on the optional lightened Centax II clutchbell. A pin will go through only one hole and it already holds the clutchbell firmly.

I'm still trying to find a 3 mm drill bit hard enough that would drill my Hudy spring steel Centax II clutchbell housing tool (909593) to align with the Centax III clutchbell holes. Once this hole is drilled, they will fit fine in the Centax III clutchbell to hold it.
Thanks, it's the II version of the tool I don't have. I'll try the HPI tool and see how that works.

Any engine that will suite your budget will be fine. Even OS engine is good. Slap it with an outlaw inline Shark pipe and see the car flying on the straights ! Remember, no point having too much power when you cannot control it.

InitialD, What tank did u use? the lid is different? Your lid nipple on the cetre behind the lid?
The manual suggested we put the lid nipple on the right for right hand sweeper...why? other than explained in the manual pg 22?

It's the same Serpent tank from the kit. I drilled a hole and put the nipple in the center, plug the other two sides with grub screws. When I do this, I do not need to change the position of the nipple if I run clockwise / counterclockwise tracks. Not a must but just my preference.

I believe this has got something to do with the moment of inertia forces acting on the car (and the fuel in the tank) when the car takes the corners.

jfc, I've tried both sides and raced clockwise as well as anticlockwise. All I can say is that ever since the AFL cap (this is standard now in all kits) was released I did not have any problems whichever side I place it.

Maybe on a huge fast and flowing track ??

True. I actually never had any tuning problems when running clockwise or counterclockwise tracks with the same fuel nipple position on the tank.

Perhaps...

p/s: Are you already back to KL? Recovering from jet lag or busy building your kit?

Yes, it is the same battery pack. Any word or email from the website concerning the receiver pack?

How did it work for you? You're using KO servo for steering? What length did you end up with? The servo arm 90 degrees with the servo casing or 90 degrees with the linkage?

It works just fine...well at least on my table..hehee
Honestly...less than the 44.5(standard)...exact no proper caliper to check..mine useless. But yes 90 deg with servo casing.
