Had to post a pic of the car, some of the hop ups are very useful, however others are for show but the bottom line is when replacement parts are needed these are way cheaper and look fantastic.

This car has the Titanium Mid shaft and 2 Speed shaft, front universals, pro dogbones and axles as well as most of the hop ups that are available.
What is the url of the shop you ordered these from? I know it has been posted before but the titanium shafts get me going!

Mark, the mods were partly from "a little help from my friends" (in the same tune as Beatles' song) !

The instructions and 3D diagrams are pretty similar between the 705 and 710. In the 710 instructions manual, there are more words there to guide the builder. But building the 710 when comparing the 705 is like heaven and hell !

How is the quality of the Titanium shafts? Have you tried running the car with CVDs?

Can you let us know what hop ups that give you those weight and performance advantage and what does not or the ones that just serve as eye candy?

BTW JABRONI, the pics look really cool.

About SSG graphite, I was told that usually since this type of graphite is softer (more flex), they are made thicker. Don't know how true this is. Anybody can shed some light?

The SSG package looks cool but it seems quite expensive. Maybe you can buy a 710 kit with that price

I would not know about the quality and strenght of the CVDs. I know 3 Racing CVDs for the Mugen is crap. Spending on a broken CVD can be very much more expensive experience.

Anyone?

I believe Proficar403 mentioned earlier back that he saw what he thought to be a revised 710 kit with the thick rear shock towers. Don't know about the quality of the plastics have improved though...
