Hey all im a noob here lol. But anyway i have a few questions. I need to know when the new ellegi's come out and also it says that the rear diff can be easily taken out by taking the blocks off the top and it doesnt work as the driveshafts stop it!

Just want to know wat you guys think?

I believe Rene Cornella or someone at the factory mentioned on mytsn 710 forum that the new rims will have ETA of about April.

As for the rear diff, you are right that the driveshafts are in the way. I remember that after using a long nose to push one of the dogbones further out and twist the rear diff at about 1 or 2 hour angles will dislodge the dogbones from the outdrives.

Else, you could slide out the rear upper arm pivot pin so that the upper rear arm is disconnected from the buklhead. That should give you leverage to disconnect the dogbones from the outdrives.

Anyway, welcome aboard !

I always use the same brand servo matching the radio....for digital, use S9451...very good speed and torque.
If you want something lighter, I knew someone used the S9550 for both throttle and steering....they are like 25gram lighter then standard servo (cause they are shorter) but 83 oz/in @ 6V torque spec, I am not sure it is strong enough for steering......S9451 run .10 Sec/60 Degrees @ 6V and 121 oz/in @ 6V spec.
The 9550 is fine for steering, and for throttle also. However, there is a chassis clearance problem with the 9550 used for steering (see prior discussions) as it is 1 mm thicker than the standard servos.

I took the back plate off and then had access to the diff, etc.

Yup, the easiest would be to take off the 4 screws that hold the rear shock tower and 2 screws that go into the back plate from the chassis below to remove the backplate. That would give you ample space.

Else, you can actually only need to remove 2 of the upper screws that hold the rear shock tower. Those screws go directly into the upper block of the rear bulkhead. Taking out the upper blocks would then be a little tight with the rear backplate still attached.

Welcome MRME... thank you columbia for the information on the servos, I think I will use the ones I have for now, they are the bare minimum, I must first get back into the rc thing as i have been out for about 5-6 years... I will get others, but will wait. Thank you all, It is nearly the end of the month, I will place my order soon....!!!! Serpent, HERE WE COME. Can anyone tell me what updates are expected in a new kit, I know wheels sometime in april. Also, where would I be able to buy wheels in bulk on-line, also, cheaper than buying lots of sets of pairs. I am looking for Ellegi obviously, but I want to choose the shore, some of you will remember I found a place, but you could not select the shore.

Thanks Dee... Which would you say is a better pipe to use, Performance wise, the EFRA legal in-line novarossi pipe, or the H.A.R.D. Shark in-line pipe?

Look what most pro's use Novarossi. They built that pipe specially for the engine. Im sure they spent alot of R&D on that pipe to compliment it with their engine. The Shark is nice because the outlet pipe wont bent out of shape when someone hits you. With the Novarossi I dont find it a problem because all you have to do is pull it out with a plier and its back to normal. You asking for performance right? I recommend the Nova pipe but its up to you which ever you want. For me you cant go wrong with Nova because all pros use it IMHO

Hey Cyba... Thank you, I was going for it, as I know the brand and it is obvious that novarossi will try to get the most, but I wanted another opinion, so thank you, my mind is made up. I have a dog just like the one in the picture, but he is all black and a cross, but he looks all rotti. Get this, his name is Bruce, he is still young and a bit clumsy, although he is a year already.
