.. in case you ask.. I don't
I agreed with you all along, what I was saying was that the mod with the shoes being exactly equal would not cause a problem, obviously unequal weight will cause problems... toast angine bearings, all clutch bearings...

lol. Its something I will have to get used to myself. Been using the screenname modellor for the best part of 4yrs and the sudden change made me feel like a newbie

I spent an hour on the board reading the threads to figure out where and how I was going to make my first post . Got that 1st time newbie too shy to post feeling

I hope your kit arrives soon too. Nothing more exciting that opening that box for the first time and seeing all the parts neatly packed away.

Man.. you reply faster that I edited my post

Funny, even without regrease on the whole race day, I haven't toast my thrust bearing.. but yes, wih unequal cut it will definetely shorten the life (which I mistakenly read the post/meaning it would toast the thurst bearing right away). Get Tmagic G4 thrust bearing for cheaper price, exactly the same in size if not mistaken (maybe the border could verify it) .

Julius,

Even if you modify your clutch shoe to the exact lenght and size, would you still recommend doing it, is it really neccessary? I heard you won the race, congrats to you Which cars were also on the podium? Will we see your results on mytsn?

1 - 10 were 710.....
I use a cut clutch shoe in my clutch. But when done incorrectly you may do more harm than good. I don't think it is nescessary for all tracks.

Thanks much, everyone. I'm in Eindhoven (yes, Philips central) and will try to catch a whiff of nitro if I can find my way around.

I thought those 710s were good, but a complete top 10 block out

Did you end up sticking to the 40 Tyres or did you use some softer compounds? Any chance of a sneak at the setup?

Just out of curiosity what was really wrong with the 705 compared to the 710 in tuning wise? Was it the design or material that they used that makes the car harder to setup or find a sweet spot?

The 705 was really the end of the development of the Impulse series of cars - essentially the car is good, but is inconsistant: on some circuits it goes like a rocket and on others it just doesn't perform or is hard to find the right set-up. The sweet spot isn't as wide as the 710 and the maintenance is a lot more involved.

For me, I still like the 705 - its a good car to learn with, as it is really strong and has enough to tune on it that you'll learn about setting a car up.
This car won some impressive races in 2003, remember - including the European championship!

I'll be heading onto the circuit perhaps on Wednesday (light now until 20:00 ) with my 705 to turn some laps in - I'm looking forward to it already!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Serpent 710 Kai kit

Does anyone know where you can get the Kai conversion set for the Serpent 710?

And the cost?

hello for alls, This the best forum in the wolrd, for the 710. I read all nights. My english is not very good, but i reading...litle and litle...
Well, i a electric driver, i love electric cars, XRAY is the best. But for some circunstancies i change for a gas car, my first touring gas, is of course, a serpent 710. I probe it, and with yours posts i help very much. Now im confused with a front roll center, i put de upper arms up, with all the shims down, the roll center is low, ok??, the car turning more and is overturn in the curve, with a lot of grip, no??? and viceversa. Is this correct, or not ?.

Thank you, very much.
