Probably not, because you have too many RC cars. You keep coming on here trying to dog Serpent. Do you see any of us going on the R40 forum and causing controversy? The R40 is a very good car. My cousin has one. I've seen Hara race it at last years Roar Nationals at Revelation Raceway. I could tell you one thing. It's not the car that wins the race. It's the driver. He only wrecked once the whole race. He would have won with any car that day. So instead bashing Serpent, why don't you pick one car (instead of messing with your 107 cars) and learn to drive it?
ChrisBlack310 you said it ,couldn't agree with you more

I have ni-mh batteries for my reciever and was wondering if I need to discharge them after each day of use or should I just let it drain by itself?

they should be stored fully charged.. not fully empty... they are not suppose to have a memory so i would not worry too much, i usually throw mine on the shelf until the day before the next meeting and then charge.

If you are talking about the 5 cells AAA on your 710.....after your race day, just leave the battery alone (DO NOT discharge) and 6 days later, before your next race, peak the battery (make sure not use more then 1AMP to charge AAA) then you should be all set

Ni-Mh does not required discharge, you can do CYCLE on the batteries, but again, these are your receiver pack, and you are not running those batteries like ppl do to race their elect TC, so there is no reason to drain and charge like the old time Ni-Cd batteries.

Master D(JC), at last i managed to slot in onto the A-Main!! All becoz of Serpent Seven Ten & my trusted RS5 STS. i only changed the ride height to 7mm(F/R) and tires 40F/37R. the track was very dusty. The rear diff is near to full lock(i love it this way). I can punch thru the corner and most of my overtaking was done in the corner when other racers slow down

THANKS SERPENT & THANKS FELLOW SERPENTINES OUT HERE FOR ALL THOSE HELPS...of coz most of it to you InitialD.

I will do my very best to be in this "A-MAIN" group. At least before someone else follow suit in buying the 710 at LHS.
Congratulations for this great result.

Actually I did register just to say all of that. Just to let you know, I do own a Veteq. As a matter of fact, I own 2, a Veteq and a Veteq 02. I ordered one of them from your local hobby store Cruizin With RC's Inc. You're the one that told everyone about their great deal on Veteqs. I got my second one for only $400. And yes, I still run them. I've also owned an Impulse Street Spec, an Impulse Pro, and now a 710. I honestly don't feel like I got ripped off when it came to the Veteq thing. If you don't dislike Serpent products, why do you always bash them on the forums. I agree with you about all cars having issues. Here you are bashing the 710 about the "710 push". The push aint nothing. That's all about making small adjustments to dial it out. Your R40 has issues out of the box also. The unprotected steering servo (don't tell me that little flimsy plastic thing will protect a servo). The slop in the rear linkages (nothing that shims won't fix). The undersized gas tank. How did your R40 handle box stock? When I say box stock I'm talking about everything setup as the manual says. If you say you set everything up according to the manual, then I'd call you a liar, because the instructions have an error on the step for the clutch (the bearings are listed wrong). Another thing is everyone used a different weight for their diff grease (not the stock supplied diff grease). You know what? I'm not trying to bash you. We in the 710 forum just want to talk about the 710, setups, etc... We don't want to talk about all that drama. Most people in the forums are here to learn and share ideas with each other. It's not about which company makes the best car. I'm sorry if I offended you. I wasn't trying to. I just got sick of all this bashing in all the threads. Oh, and by the way, how much are you selling your Veteq? Does Cruizin With RC's Inc have any more in stock?

Actually I don't really care what company wins a major race. It would be nice to see Serpent win, but I could care less. I give props to all the Pro drivers out there. It doesn't matter what company they driver for. They always put on a good show.

but reading posts here on this thread make me think otherwise sometime. bragging is just as bad as bashing, if done excessively or without any ground.

got a veteq and an impact for sale, pm me if you are interested.

Sorry if I offended anyone.
I just felt that it was stupid for fastharry to come in here trying to start controversy over a typo.
It's bad enough for him to bash Serpent in the R40 thread, but for him to come here trying to start stuff.
I felt that was wrong.
