I must admit, I use windows... I am a desktop support engineer with a dream and I hate the platform I use, but it is all I know... My dream is to at least compete in the world championships, I would like to race at least once at all the popular tracks around the world... My 710 will stand by me.

Glow plug hole too big? What are you trying to do? Take the enigne out with the bodyshell on?

Well, the cable ties is a cheap way to protect the head. Especially if you run Lola body which makes the engine exposed. I think Mugen sells some head protectors that you can put on too.

Not sure how it works with the WC - if it is by invitation only, but it you want that WC feeling, I think you could do worse than going to the Winternats in florida next year - it is affectively a mini-WC.

Yes they are. It's a cheap way to protect the engine.

Solaris is the operating system from Sun Microsystems - this is the worlds most stable platform. Uptime on these units is in the order of a couple of years without reboots! The only reason mine go down at home is due to power cuts

I suppose... I can respect your secrecy... I am worried, and I wander if anyone can help, If I order a kit on the first of april from serpent, and if they send me all the updated parts, what will I actually get that is updated? I dont want to order on the 1st and on the 3rd they release another update, and then I sit with an old part that I will need to purchase and spend more money. Are there any other expected updates?
