Where is the mark on the hubs
Just in front off the turnbuckle

What have the rest of you guys done with the shim...Left it in, or took it out?
It is supposed to stay in! It makes the gears run true, like a sealant. I'm not sure there is a seperate part number. I know it is supplied with every 1st speed pinion though.

I'm sure those close to Serpent do not want to overstate the case for the 710. But this is a GREAT car.
I just finished 2 days driving it (while breaking in a new engine) on a slightly dusty track with fair traction. Temperature in the mid 60's. My durometer indicated that the kit tires were probably F/R 40/37. The car understeered alot. I didn't have any red springs, so I changed to F/R 40/40, and this helped a little. Then I changed the DRS to the "above" position and there was a noticible lessening of the push in the high speed sweepers, but it was also better in the infield. Then I shortened the position on the anti-roll bar about 2mm, and the car is now nearly dead neutral when it drifts at high speed, with just a little too much front push left. I quit at this point waiting for the red springs, which should be here tomorrow.
In a word, the car is, DRIVABLE!
I sold my two MTX3s at the track today.

JFC, I got mine via eBay

You'll find that PayPal will not allow you to sign up but a lot of the sellers accept money orders. Alternatively sign up with BidPay ... you give them your credit card number and they send the money order to where ever.

#802511 Centax-3 gear-shim alu
This shim will also be supplied with the 16T and 17T gears.

If you have free time, about that 2mm mod, please take a shoot from the side showing carb and the tank braket. No worries on the machinning.

Pyramid, I received my 16T Centax-3 Gearpinion last week and the shim was not included. Thats why I thought it was not meant as a permanent part of the Centax-3 System.

Thanks but im not willing 2 give away my credit card no. nosirreee

Maybe i just use my feel & touch things. The clutch nut measurement is actually a matter of engage early or later...so i think i manage without "digital measurement". I just use my "analog" caliper
Thanks Sow&Steady. Hopefully InitialD can shed me some light on this.

Same here. I bought the 16T pinion, # 802516 and the package definitely does not include the shim!

An analog one will do but for an old boy like me, the focussing is a little weak. I need to see actual numbers to best judge whether its right or wrong.

Master D may be a little quiet, probably still in Bangkok. Or maybe resting at home and wondering what he can share with us from M. Salven's "Tech Talk" to cut off 1 second per lap!

i pity u..

Master D for sure got a lot of things he learnt there but whether he would share or not.....i think we have to fork out some green note...or bigger RM(MY) for him to open his mouth

I hope he didn't really make lots of laps...coz if manage 100 laps, meaning 100 secs to cut off
