I agree with what clmbia45 mentioned. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

But then again, what you could do is get another set of flyweights if it's available. Then with one set, cut it down to fit it differently. Test it out and see if you like it. Else, revert back to the old stock one. That's just a suggestion.

That would be cool, especially if hiding it is also functional in terms of crash safety!

If you look at the 705 of Michael and Julius for the Euros in Portugal, I think that's how they mount their transponders too.

But then I'm looking into fitting the normal type of AMB transponder onto the 710 with the optional carbon fibre 1666 star transponder mounting of the 705 instead of mounting it on the bodyshell. Most local races do not support the new personal transponder yet !

I installed the Palmaris hand modified ns12 engine in my 710 for future racing. I had a palmaris P/S in a sx12 in my 705 and the murnan couldn't get away from me, imagine what it will do in the 710.

Pit, I haven't heard of Palmaris before. Any more info on this? PM me if you wish.

Thanks,

No I haven't!

Don't listen to D too much ... he might have a good memory but he's just trying to get the forum going again.

Seriously, I've been trying to get one but to be honest, Mr. Murnan is not the most responsive in terms of replying PMs or Emails.

Maybe he's too busy working on his engine for others that its not much point bothering with small orders from overseas. Unfortunate for me but what to do ...

Try this place out.

They carry Murnan modified engines. On their site, they only have the modified Mugen MT12 listed. I'm sure Lee could get other ones. I'm just not sure if he ships to other countries.

You could go for a Palmaris. Same day replies and definately shipped worldwide.
