Hey serpentracer1

Not only the pully’s are different, also the pulleyadapters are new. Even they had be modified to be lighter. So that’s why the old pully’s want fit.

Actually the FC Blocks where designed for this car. So we just used they earlier.
The hollow shaft will not fit. But you can fix it your own.

About time difference : here its nearly 2 PM

Is the 710 also tested with the pretension-springs, and what was the outcome?

We tested tha car with many different things. But not with all the stuff we have.
So we still must learn more.
I actually never used them in my 705 so for me it was not important to try the pretension-springs in the 710.
Hey, it could be a good idea to test them.
Thx for input.

Wow, it looks like it’s in middle of a living area.
For sure we have some nice tracks here in Europe, but you can have fun on every track.
Not the track makes the fun, it’s the people the drive.

Yea it is we built it in 2000 and it right in the middle off a major highway with shopping centers and all around it.The size of the track doesnt bother me Ive always believed that you develop better driving skills on a smaller track than you do on a larger track

At the moment we had not planed to make a gear diff.
I don’t know exactly, when the front diff will be available.
But it will not take long time, because we also know that a one-way or a solid axle doesn’t work on every track.

Thanks Rene....

As you've been reading,alot of american style club tracks are a med size,surrounded by 2x4 wood lanes......Do you feel the rear suspension will hold up to the hits it will take,without breaking,or tweaking?.....

Of course,I understand that ina hard enough collision,ANYTHING will break.....but there is a certain amount that will be inflicted regardless..

D,

Thanks for the break-in info... For a while I thought my tempgun was going belly up... Anyway, I did take them apart, knowing very well what can be lest inside by tuners and manufacturers. I think I'll try your method of breaking in.... in the future.

Rene, you can come and test at our track, if you wish At the moment there are lots of unexpected hazards like leaves and twigs and acorn nuts It may be important to test under these conditions

We did not take a peice of wood and gave the suspension a whack

But I do believe the suspension is no more falible than other cars on the market. We crashed the car more than once during testing, and broke no parts. Wooden boards? We'll see for sure at the crash test track of the Florida Winternats, but I'm quite optimistic.
