I believe the latest digital servos from KO (KO-2343 and 2344) allows you to program the servo for what it's worth ! You need a special cable which they sell. You can either do it via their propreitary programmer or via PC with the necessary software and cable.

In my opinion, I don't think it's necessary though...

I try not to run more than 200 mm in the rear for setup and handling reasons. It does rub the right DRS arm a little but now not anymore.

Cheers, Mark.
You could actually... I believe the 705 had an optional aluminum rear hex wheel adaptors that are 8 mm wide if I'm not mistaken. Perhaps you can use that too. Or you could use rear wheels that already have +2 mm offset.

Me either. However, radiotray, rear tower, brake plate, front upper and lower bumper have all broken and I have pulled a pivot ball from the hub, not the arm.
Radio tray and brake plate ( )? You mean the CF brake plate?

Picard, I have also done some very silly things when making adjustments... try running a front and a rear spring on the front shocks, and your rear shocks in different upper holes.
I think you were in a hurry when you made those adjustments...

I found that the 710 behaves very nicely with soft suspension setup even on high speed tracks. Don't know why. Perhaps the car is light and the stock yellow springs and 30wt oil is already enough.

If you need mind boggling brakes to outrun and outbrake the competition, that's the ticket !

With some changes to the setup, you can make the car drive as if you're on front diffs ! The car turns in easily and powers out fantastic !

The pins may be a little tight going in the hole. Perhaps it is meant to be that way. What I did was I used one of my old hex wrenches with about the same diameter as the pin and use a plastic mallet / hammer to knock the pin in. Take off the tires and lay the chassis flat while doing this. Also, make sure that the holes in the oneway outdrive and the holes in the aluminum axle is inline.

Mop, here it is.

Might or might not work for you. Worked for me though. Perhaps you could make it work the same when using the optional front diff.

I would agree that if the traction is decent, the oneway front is faster.

Please let me know "D" how the solid front diff and front diff compare on a small track. I'm interested in hearing about that. Thanks.
