MR D,

Do you know which K&N filter fits to the SS 3 port? At rccarinternational there are several sizes and I'm not sure which one fits.

Cheers, Mark.

I remember Jan wanted to sell me the K&N filter. It looks nice but I think a normal sponge type will work fine. In fact cheaper too.

You basically have to buy the aluminum adapter if I'm not mistaken. Then the K&N filter goes in. I can't remember what adapter goes in a .12 engine. You can ask them via email.

Ok, I thought you'd said one time about the K&N being good - I've dreamt it I think Ok, will stick with the sponge.

Why not get another complete kit just for spares? If you calculate it out, I think you'll only get a few separate things for the same price of a complete kit...

I know what you mean, but I normally break the same parts, so I'd end up having a load of parts which I may replace once in two years, but a few parts which I would replace a few times.

My philosophy exactly ...

Plus, those parts you don't need immediately such as 2-speed clutch set etc will eventually come in handy when the older one wears out.

Yet others such as the pinion set, what I do is have them installed with other sizes (16-21) and I keep the original 17-22 pinions as spares or ... see below.

Above all else, if you happen to drive at a track where there are others with the 710, you'd most likely end up being the good samaritan who just happen to have that part he needs.

Aha, but you're taking the 2nd kit and building the lightest car this side of town has seen ! Remember?

You're using 21T pinion? I find that using about 60 to 62 mm tires with the stock 22T pinion is about right for the normal straights at Titi. Unless you have an engine which can scream 48,000 rpm !

Really? Oh good samaritan, where are you when I need you for spares?

Oh, yes, I also remember than rubber tires work better when front and rear sway bars are taken out. Set the car for as little camber change as possible and use lower roll centers to get more grip. The idea is to make the car roll more.

Yes Very nice... I just followed the report on mytsn on cleaning them and applying the oil etc. I used the Eagle Racing bearing cleaner with Shellite.

Just for a bottle of bearing oil? That would be overkill. The problem is when I start adding stuff to make upo for the shipping, I'll blow out my pocket !

I have never seen anyone succesfully run on our track with foams... rubber tyres aren't that bad, $8usd for the tyre and insert can be reused, i do have a bad habbit of buckling the rims though. I might try a frnt roll centre change to see what that does to my mid corner steering. What impact will that have on entry and exit steering though?
