Naah... I think I'm not as lucky as you ! Now I'm tempted to keep the shell and not use it during race !

Ummm, I tried to mount the body as backward as possible. The rear body post should be mounted on the side of the rear shock tower closer to the engine (opposite from the manual suggest).

Yeah... With some natural light and fill in flash, the colours turn out better. The decals help out too.

Kent IC Club had the 2nd round of the summer series yesterday, I was having a great final after qualifying 2nd, I was driving away from the rest of the field; However, 20 minutes into the 30 minute final after a slight loss of concentration I had a fairly minor accident which broke the front shock shaft and put me out of the race. Up until then the car was awesome and my lead was great enough to hold onto 2nd place and only missed the win by 1 lap because the guy who was in 2nd at the time of my accident also went out with problems.

Best part is I've dropped my quickest lap time by a full second, I can honestly say the 710 is an exceptional car and very easy to drive, as well as being incredibly quick and it's doubly nice when you've got the only Serpent there, the rest are driving TM G4's and Schumacher R12's.
Well done Diesel Racer, and I thought you said you're not that good!

Did you go to the last Nationals? You should with that kind of performance. Apparently Mark Green got 2nd.

I raced two weekends ago too at AMCC (no race over the Easter weekend). Qualified 8th in the foam class but had to leave the race before the final started!

Next time you feel yourself losing concentration, come in for a pit stop and do a little stretching to knock off the cob-webs!!! You would've won the race if you had!!!
Or better still, come in for a pit stop and ask your pit man to clean your car's windshield!

Hey Mark, missed this earlier. Congrats ! 2nd is still something.

Do yourself a favour. Please tell the other guys that the car you run has a lot of problems and your win is mostly based on a lot of your luck and skill. Else, you even out the playing field and give away the podium when you tell them to switch over to Serpent !
