I know what it is, it isnt the force or yoda... it is... that you have a bottle of nitro there, it is open and your windows are closed, also, I heard a little birdy tell me that you have been painting a body with the windows closed, these altogether = clouded vision... not the mention engine fumes, but that would have been from some other time

I think if I could collect nitro fuel from my lungs, it could easily been about 1 gallon or so !

Yeah, the CF plate that sits over the brake arm and roll bar. Had a nasty rear end hit and snapped the shock tower and there was enough force to split the brake plate.

The radio tray was this last weekend... only a small crack where the reciever box mounts..

Woow, that must really be a big hit !

I also had a crack on the radio plate at the receiver box mount nearer towards the engine during the race in Thailand. Just the CF splitting which I manage to use CA and press the CF layers back in one piece.

It was a bad hit when the 1/8th scale T bonned my car on the short infield straights from the pipe side (thank god for the Shark pipe ) and the car rolled over on the other side scrapping the receiver box. That was the only time when my 1st gear pinion and spur got destroyed because that too got scrapped against the tarmac.

Ah, now I can see it ! Nice shots.

Is that a BMW M3 body? Marcos, I think you should change the bodyshell. Use the good old Stratus or the Stratus 2.1 or the newer Alfa 2.1 and the Mazda 6. It'll do a whole lot of good to the car.

Don't know how many of you read this but this is a funny post on mytsn by one of the members !

You don't need the big bucks to keep up!?!

my 710 has leveled the playing field (for a while). This car is amazing, I've only raced with it once but what an improvement over my mugen. I work at Revelation Raceway, and there is often many very fast guys who come to my track. With my mugen, no matter what I did I had to force the car in the infield to even come close to keeping up, and everyone knows its hard to stay consisent when you are forcing the car. Now I cruise around the infield, at quarter to half throttle and the fast guys are wondering what happenned to me,they're forcing it to keep up. Its easy to stay smooth when you're not forcing the car. I think I have the Serpent design team to thank for this, I think I'm a pretty good driver, but I don't think I woke up a better driver 8 hrs. after finishing building the kit. P.S. tell the mugen, assc., &ofna team drivers the 710 stinks. please!


I think Ken is right ! We should tell everybody that the car stinks and that it has lots of problem !

Hey Mark, I think ID's been busy, cos he has been sniffing tha paint fumes while painting with the window closed, but he must have opened it cos the cloud has lifted from his vision... Only joking... Great win for Shumi and Ferrari this weekend!!! there seems to be something about germans and italians together, like nova and ... well, i dint know...
