The porting was not optimised in the crank and the bottom end was shocking.
Yes.. correct. Im still remember that 2103.

I still have the 2103T engine. That's my first engine and I would say that it's a pretty decent engine for a beginner. I think the piston and conrod is damaged already. The liner is still stuck on the crankcase. One of these days, I'll rebuild it and bring it back to life !

I bought one as an "upgrade" from a MT12 and expected to be dominating at the track after reading the specs. I think they claimed 34,000 rpm at the time and I was freaking out that a motor could rev so high!!!! I thought man this thing is gonna hammer. Sadly I got my ass handed to me big time by the much better MT12s. My motor did have marginally more top end but the rest of the powerband sucked so badly that it did not matter.

How many volts on my receiver pack do I need in order to run safely? I would like to check once in awhile but want to make sure whats a safe voltage? I usually just plug it into my charger and it reads how many volts it has. This reading should be accurate from the charger correct? Can someone give me some numbers?

Like AMGRacer mentioned, NiMH does not need discharging. But some purist would insist on discharging theirs anyways.

I would actually recommend discharging the RX and TX batteries after your weekend runs - although it isn't as important as in electric touring cars.
For my EVO III I have GP3300 battery packs - when I discharge them with an NiMH discharger, I can squeeze 4 Amps into them, when I don't discharge them and then recharge, then I only get 2.9 Amps - also the overall power output is lower and the car isn't so responsive.

Obviously the case is different for the AAA packs in the 710 - you wouldn't notice any difference in response if the batteries weren't discharged and maybe the run time is not hugely different, but good battery maintenance does help to allow the pack to "live" longer.
A couple of things to observe with NiMH is never leave them for long periods with a full charge and never discharge them completely (i.e. to zero volts; NiMH discharges cut-off at about 0.9 V) - apart from that you can pretty much do what you want.

Cheers, Mark.

I believe most receivers have a threshold voltage of about 4.8 V before the fail safe kicks in (if you have one).

One NiMH cell is 1.2 V. 5 cells would be 6V. Some times after charging, it even touches to 7V.
