Thanks...oh yes, I always use Locktite on wheel nuts...I've seen way too many wheels come off during a race. I know people who use Locktite even on nylon lock nuts.

well, i straightened the wobble on the front one way by lightly pushing the pulley over. That didn't work on the rear so I guess I'll have to to pull the rear diff out.

Default My car

Finally I got it all together

Went to the track to run in the engine some and crashed at speed in the second lap... front right end gone ( the aluminum pivotballs are very fragile).
LHS's don't stock 710 parts yet so I ordered a second kit as spares. I think it's cost effective on the long run

I love this car!!

Nice paint scheme! Looks killer. When you assembled your diffs, did they wobble at all?

I just checked them. The rear has up to .6 or .7mm wobble (it has some side play) and the front is .3mm (Smaller pulley). Nothing to worry about... when those things pick up revs they'll straighten out.

Does anyone run 26mm rear tires on the 710 or majority of the racers are using 30mm...? Is it possible to run 26mm in the rear...?

Obviously another graphically talented person

Back to your car pic - what do you use to mask the body work? - the lines look very clean.

No worries and no Jedi tricks to the numbers !
I meant to ask you this earlier - which droop gauge are you using?

Is that Mazda of your's ready yet?

The masking tape I used is "pactra" 1/4" to divide the colors and than regular one to fill out the big areas. It's a very easy tape to work with!

Thanks for the good comments on the graphics! It's nothing special but been a rookie at paint jobs I wanted to to play it safe and have a simple yet racy look.

Updated my website to include my 710 and courtesy of markp27 there is a link to his 710 FAQ pages, I'll try and keep the link up to date for easier reference.

To tell you the truth, I stopped using loctite on my car after I stripped the engine screws ! Perhaps I was new at that time and never thought that you just needed a little of it to get it to work.

I only use on the grub screws on the aluminum pulley adapter. I only use on the grub screws on the aluminum pulley adapter.

I don't use loctite on my Centax pinions and on my engine screws as well as the wheel nuts. I just tighten them up very tightly.
