Mark, I feel bad for you.
I guess it wasn't your day.
But at least you didn't break anything.

How often do you rebuild your diffs?

Thanks I only started with RC last year and never really had the time to do much driving with the 705. To improve my driving, I bought an EVO III last November. Now returning to the 705 my driving is much better than last year - my only problem is my memory!
I actually didn't have one "off" today - which is amazing considering how twitchy the car was - the EVO III winter practice really paid off

Anyway,

Where are you guys mounting your switch? I searched for some pics, but couldn't find one that gave me a definitive answer.

Thanks!!


I installed a KOPROPO electronic swith on my car and used the tips on MYTSN. Here is a link. You must login I think? http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=9658

Boy, that was a tough day! Well, I've got a couple of weeks without Rc now and I hope things go better when I get back

Cheers, Mark.
Oh dear, I know how you feel though Mark.

I just got back from the US and thought I'd join the race at my club (the outdoor one). Of course, all winter I've been playing indoors and the outdoor track had been wet all night.

It wasn't a good start for anyone including me. By heat 3 I got the car to perform better but the problems go on and on. They were small ones but enough for me to say "bugger it, I'll pack up and go watch the Bahrain F1!"

Time to rebuild the car ... it hasn't been serviced since I bought it and its done at least 5 races in Asia and Europe!

Mine is the old fashion way ... so no particular position, just where the plugs meet

Not having a switch means I have to plug it in every time I need to power on the elec...not a option I seem to like..
Typically, most racers will run a Y lead into the TX battery conn. Then plug the PT into one of the connectors, the Rx pack in the other. This way, you can still baloon your Rx but you avoid the trouble of switches malfunctioning. Yes, you will have to connect and disconnect but it is really better than having a switch go bad at the wrong time...

Default New Colours

Eventually got my camera back from my mate - here's a pic of my new body shell with colours heavily borowed from Cox.

Cheers, Mark.

I think you missed that Serpent has updated the DRS arm too. It's now longer so the pivotball threads in deeper.

You're right I forget that the 710 has two "arms" I'm still "playing" with my 705, but the 710 will soon hit the track

Mark, I'll give you a very old tip, it only involves a piece of paper and a pencil. Its called "list"

But like PSI said; At least you didn't break

Couldn't agree more.

Anyway, let me know next time when you update the FAQ so I can upload it to RC Reviews.

The latest version (1.0.1) is on there now folks!
