I am yet to actually learn something from you on this forum.

Its not that I don't like you, my statement is from the example you are giving of yourself with the kind of aggresive words you use to qualify people you don't even know. It was poor
I'm just answering you with your own words (read above), only thing I've changed is last paragraph.
Get off this Forum man!!!!!!!
We don't need people like you here!!!!!!

I guy posted this in another forum. Is this at all true with the new 710??
"ive had some bad times with 1/10 sepents. i dont really even stock them anymore. every time i would use it some kind of belt or pully problem."
Just wondering if any of you have had these issues? Also, do the pulleys or tensioners wear out and need replacing?

Has anyone felt the need to change belt tensions from "default" yet?
After 3 half days of running, the compressed air blew the rear belt off of the pulley, so I tightened it. No problem since.

I believe there is only one belt tensioner, the longest one which spins the front wheels?

All three belts can be adjusted, and I set the front and rear belts one notch tighter after running the car for the first time.
I'm still on the original belts, much better than the 705.

How about the front and rear eccentric hubs to adjust front and rear belt tension! I had put them both on loose but i think of changin them back to default.

Oh really? I was trying to get one but was told that they were only making them for the team drivers first. Oh well, thanks very much for the feedback.

I dont see any top drivers or manufacturers banging down your door begging for you to build them an engine for their team drivers.

Where did your drivers finish at the nats?

To tell you the truth, I couldnt give a rats arse if you have made your own engine and I havent. I also dont modify engines for money, I have done some work on my own and my friends engines with some good results. Am I about to go global? Hell no, I have a real job that takes a lot of my time.

I am yet to actually learn something from you on this forum. Unlike the other reputable engine modifiers on the forum.

Its not that I dont like you, my statement is from the example I have seen of your work. It was poor.
Sparksy

Go and ask Michael Salvan what P/L set did he using in Winter Nats, and put your word back into your ass!

well I could really careless.. how about a motore forum for you guys to battle it out.. the tech and motor was as good as any other motor at the show, with the builder there to supoport it, Salvin did runa piston and sleeve and had no issues ands gave nothing up.. so there you go..


the 710 was more durable then the 705 or pro ever were drive train whys, we put threee gallons of fuel through the cars at winternats, and never fixeed one drive train part.. belts and pulleys are fine.

Good to hear about not having any drivetrain or belt/pulley issues with the 710. So, how many gallons of fuel do most of you have on your 710's so far?? Hey Ammdrew, was that 3 gallons used for one car or two cars??

they are all avalable from elligi, it is up to the store to just order them, i would recommend the solid dish though, much more durable.

3 gallons between two cars at the track, that does not count the 1/2 gallon used before we got with our fuel supplier BK and the breakin fuel used on the motors before we evem left..

and all that fuel was done in constant race conditions.. faster than most normally ever drive, if you go to a race like this and you are way off pace you usually end up replacing most of the parts on the car.. as the 1/8 scale cars will try and remove them without tools...

only parts we ended up putting on the car were lower and upper bumper plates and we deserved all of them.. It just will not hold up when you try and poush the 1/8 scales out of the way because they are slowing you down..
