Finaly i had some time off yesterday to have a testday for my 710 and myself. After last drive (2 weeks ago) and some parts that needed to be replaced ( don't get too fast on throttle when you exit a corner wich has a brickwall ), i wanted to get the car working with a good setup for my front balldiff. Luckely for me that i race (need to read learn to race) at MACH Heemstede so there are sometimes teamdrivers to test new stuff or try different setups. I have been setting up my 710 on hudy setup for to many times now to check what was wrong with my car (it broke out on corner exit) checked shock, downstops, tweak, toe in/out and still it stayed .
Time to ask the experts Rene and Stanley:
Check your rear diff!
Eureka problem found (had to read Julies article before putting the diff together)

Now i can start to improve my laptimes and hope i can have a good race this Sundays.

Are you referring to the XRay CVD mod? I'm not surprised if Serpent comes out with one that ius suitable for nitro because I think Serpent has been testing out the CVDs for some time already.

Schrijver99, what was wrong with your rear ball diff?

Or to put it the other way around, how did you assemble the rear ball diff wrong?

RB engines are actually fine. I know that the older engines like the normal X12 and the Rody Tuned X12 engines are notorious with broken crankshafts. I don't know if that's a problem with the newer V12 engines. Which are you planning to get?

But suffice to say, you can't go wrong with the Novarossi / NovaMega engines.

While RB engines shine at the bottom end, the Novarossi ones will be better at the top end of the engine RPM.

Hey, pass me the original doc. Perhaps with the "real" word processor that I'm running here I can then print it to PDF the correct way !

Hey, the titanium screws are not for weight savings in case you didn't know ! It's for looks ! Don't want the screws to rust in all the humid weather that we have here.

Mr. Hudy, if you can build the MTX-3 centax properly, I do not see why you cannot build them right on the 710. Like Mark mentioned, parts go in very easily.

Remember... the eye is watch and the darkside has you... use the FORCE...

Anyway, I have a problem, would you go for the q-world failsafe on rc-mushroom, or will you go for the KO failsafe? I dont know which one I should look at???
