Thanks for the replies guys. I think I'm going to just run the extended plug like "D" said. Do you guys have a part number for this extended KO plug/wire??
I'm taking your guys advice and instead of buying a bunch of spare parts I'm just going to buy a second 710 kit and use that for spare parts. Like you guys said, cheaper in the long run. Plus I can always buy a couple of extra's on top of that like some extra belts, shock towers. Thanks guys!

Thank you punisher, that gives me a great idea... it would give the car more downforce. I will have to check with the local track first as they still say it isn't race legal to have a turbo plug? I heard it is somewhere, I just dont remember though. I hade another delivery arrive today, I must still fetch it, but it arrived. My car arrives soon, I worked like a compleat fool to get enough money together, should be paid end of the month, so I can order my 710!!! I cant wait. It would have been here already after I sold my laptop, but the a$$hole paid me with a fraudulent check, should have known, this is South Africa. I lost R5500 which is ~$850. If only I could find him!!!

Tell me about it! I've been saving like a &^R&^% trying to get everything for the 710 and setup tools. I've sold a RB WS7, almost new, Mugen clutch setup, Mugeb 1/8 shocks. Plus had to fidgite a little and make some room on the Visa! Now I'm just waiting for my 710 to arrive! Then in the first week of April I'll order my spare 710, 20 sets of tires, starter box and pipe. Then I'll be completely ready for race season. Can't wait!

You can actually take a peek at http://photo.rc4fun.com at the SAC 2004 gallery.







I believe the photos were shot via a zoom lens on a Canon EOS 300D !

Hey D,
I heard you were at the Thailand race not so long ago. How did you do?

D man... It is more like...

<The bow smiley> We're not worthy... (another<The bow smiley>) we're not worthy...


Nice looking car... I like the number placement.

How the.... do you get these extra smileys?

Do those cool 710 stickers come with the kit?

COOOL!!! That brown really works well

Hey, your car has antlers! Is that a tactic to get rid of the other drivers

If only there was a guy with a D1 at the event!

I used cable ties so that I can put silicone tubing on it for that quick grip to rip out the body clips !

It was actually the larger body clips from my 705 ! Believe it or not I forgot to bring along the 710 body clips with me and I ended up using those !
