I think it's mostly that you get 4WD braking as oppose to rear 2WD braking with a oneway front. Other than that, the oneway front is generally still faster on the 710.

Front left and right can have different camber. So does the rear left and right. Front and rear wheels need not necessarily have the same camber.

I use -1.5 for the front left and right. In the rear, I use -3.5 on the left and -3.0 in the right. That's because the track I run on have more right hand corners and sweepers.

I just like the 2 speed to kick in right when it hits the straight but it seems to kick in too fast as well in the turns which makes it a bit difficult to drive.
The correct way is to set the 2 speed to engage about 1/3rd of the longest straight. I think that's the general rule of thumb.

If still you find the car uncomfortable in the infields that the 2nd gear still changes and makes your driving difficult, I suggest to test out using a SMALLER 1st gear spur or even using a BIGGER 1st gear pinion to compensate. You will have enough rollout to take your car in the infields in first gear. Remember that changing pinions has a bigger effect on the gearing than by changing spurs.

I think I need to make adjustments so that it doesnt engage too early. Before It would engage at halfway down the straights which in my opinion felt too late. I find it difficult to adjust the 2 speed without taking the gears out.

Yes, it is difficult to access the 2 speed screws from external. I suggest taking them out. It's pretty easy. Use a flat screw and pop out the R5 C clip (keep a lot of them as spare). A quick tip... Push the C clip out downward into your pit towel on the table. That way, it will not pop out into the air when you take off the C clip !

Thanks, if thats a compliment
Yea, the main purpose i paint with that color is for my pitboy to recoqnize it. Furthermore, this time, i make sure my color theme is the only one on track...i also paint my EP TB EVO III the same color. all this becoz, my pitboy ever pit the wrong car. He totally mis-watched my car which traction roll on the end of sweeping corner. He still thought my car was still running

by the way...your car's color looks awesome
Crashed_1...are ye in business for another one to paint ? How about 1 set of tires with postage/shipping included?

Default Gearing?

Hi everyone
iam running the standard gearing on my710 and my car was quick on the straight but seems very sluggish out of the corners i have checked my diff and my my clutch is allmost at the end of the thread! there is 0.7 gap on the clutch i am using a new mova max turbo s3 engine and out of the corners my car gets blown away buy a mugen with and jp modified in it could this be because of the gearing? tracks in this country are very small and tight. would you guys reccomend different grearing for track like these?
