Ultra-lightweight spring steel bell housing for Centax-III clutch system. Weighs 10% less than the original bell housing, yet still retains all its strength.Due to its new design the bell housing and the rest of the Centax are now better cooled. This item is suitable for the Serpent 710 and is only designed to work with the Centax-III system.
is it available here in our place, D?

I sincerely hope that MS and thre Serpent team get a turn in the luck department in Brazil.

I'd hate to see that yet again Serpent is not in the top 3 because ...... because .... because ....

Yes but revving high without power would be counter-productive. Obviously Swauger got it right in terms of rev and power using a #6 plug. Even MS admitted it in the MyTSN article.

Yes. I believe those adjustments were for better fuel mileage.

Or course with all the adjustments set, with 40% nitro, anything is possible in the speed department.

Don't know of availability yet.

I've tried the vented clutchbell option on the 705. I did not have any problems... dirtwise !

Really? It's 1.875.

Hey Mark, does the FAQ include the 710 internal drive ratio somewhere?

Not yet, I think Rene confirmed the value some time ago. I'll look back and add it to the FAQ.

Man you're making me jealous - talking about racing, when it is virtually impossible to drive here
Actually the weather is great today - bloody cold (-5 Deg C) but very dry. If it remains so, then I could risk going to the track on Sat Just wish there was a webcam installed there, then I could see if the snow is still on the track

Cheers, Mark.

Yup. Rene's reply would be the best. That would be many moons ago.

The major customer is in Korea and I'm sure they would be glad to have me there, but a they work on average 12-15 hour days, then there would be no RC
