Not only does the Prop Blade keep it cool but it puts a drag on the engine to simulate the weight and drag of the car due to the blade desing of the prop.
The last thing you want when you are using a run in bench is to keep the motor Cool I'm sorry but if you keep the engine cool during run in you will wear it out before it ever hits the track.

The proper procedure when using a run in bench is to actually cover the head of the engine to keep the temp in it. You want to richen it right up and run it in for the first couple of tanks and a med low throttle at around 80C. Then the next two tanks and mid throttle at 90C then the last two tanks wide open at 100C all the while keeping it very rich. Then put the motor in the car and run two more tanks through it getting it close to your race tune at around 110C.

If you keep it cool throughout the run in on the bench you will wear out the piston and liner before it even hits the track.

Yep, sure way to stuff your engine is to run it in too cold. You want the insides and block to expand close to what the do during normal operation.

If the piston liner etc dont have the temp to expand then the engine works too hard putting too much stress on the rod, and the piston and liner then need to wear more to free up. Then when you finaly bring the engine to race temp, there is too much worn from the moving parts.

Do you think it would make a big difference in decrease of reception if I were to make my antenna shorter? I want it short enough so it wont stick out of the body. Im thinking of wraping it around the antenna tube, like the ones you see on 1/12th cars. I hate that long antenna

The whorst thing you can do is rap it around something, DON'T do this...
Make sure it sticks out of the body( 10cm)
You don't want your car take of in his own and blow his engine up!
I prefer a long antenna and not the cost of a new engine.....

Of course you can get them 3rd party. Speedmind and so does Tamiya sells them. Just make sure of the size and length of the M3 titanium screws to replace the steel ones you're using on the car.

Don't try that with your 710. Silver Stone Track is not that small. If "yours" is too short,other guys will laugh at you.

Silver Stone Shop has it. You have to know the length of screws first.

Unhappy Rear shock tower

I'm having some bad luck with the rear shock towers of the 710.
I broke two in one day of racing.

These where not violent crashes either, usually when I got on my lid . Maybe double stacking two towers together
and filling in the webbing of the towers with something to reinforce.

I think Serpent needs to look into this.
Other than that I'm really impressed with the car and the way it
handles.
