With the TP04 is a 2 piece pipe and generally used for torque. You need to match the pipe and manifold to get the correct pipe length. The inline pipes (fixed pipe length) like the TP05 and TP06 are generally used for middle and top end with pretty moderate bottom end. Whatever pipe you use, gear to compensate accordingly.

If you did not know, Julius does not work for Serpent ! He works for KLM but drives for Serpent !

Put it this way, guys running methanol only, with better superchargers, more boost and better cylinder heads make about 3000-3500 Horespower. Guys running Nitro about 90%, with less boost are making about 8000 HORESPOWER!!!! There is alot of power to be had with Nitro. The extra power that comes from Nitro is because it is actually quite explosive. Nitro actual explodes in the combustion chamber. On the engines that are running Nitro in Drag Racing, it is so explosive and there is soo much cylinder pressure that after every pass all the bearings in the engine have been completely pounded flat! Now thats power! Just my two cents.
Can you build me a custom nitro engine for my 710 I need more power! I just need a few hundred horses only, not a few thousand.

True. Take a look at some Team Magic pipes and inline pipes made by HARD. Their lengths can be adjusted.

You could actually use the 2690 pipe on the 710. Team Serpent used to use that pipe on their 705 / Impulse PRO before the TP05 and TP06 inline pipes came out.

Mr. Chan is right about the things to do. I noticed the same when I tried a friend's 710 with front and rear diffs. On power, the car drifts and does not track the path that you want. I would suggest tightening the front and rear diffs. Front relatively tighter than rear.

Yup. Especially lacking of good Serpent drivers in our area here. Hara would be a tremendous boost to sales of Serpent in this region !

I checked 5 times the clutch gap and the end play as in the manual. I loose the clutch spring more than one turn but the problem is still there.
I am not able to understand if I made a mistake or the clutch shoe is burn out...
If you measured the clutch gap correctly, you would have compensated for any wear in the clutch shoe. So I don't think your clutch shoe is burned out assuming you checked your clutch gap correctly.

Anyway, did you mod the Centax flyweights? The correct way to check the clutch gap is to take off all the bearings at the back of the clutch bell and mount the clutch bell with the thrust bearing. Then measure as per the manual.

If your clutch still slips, keep adding shims (0.1 mm at a time) to the front near the thrust bearing to make the clutch gap closer and test it out.

What do you guys use to clean your engine? I was told to use cleaning alchohol.

Which fuel would you recommend using, Tornado or Byron? Im currently using Tornado 25%. They should both be about the same correct? These are the only 2 type of fuels my lhs carries.
