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?
Have you done the flyweight mods?

If you have not done it at the moment, I suggest to use a smaller gap of say 0.5 mm or so.

I have done the flyweight mods. My clutch pre-tension nut is set at 1.1 mm with the stock Centax gold spring (1.7 mm diameter) and I'm currently trying the 0.7 mm clutch gap. Very hard acceleration and I need to control the throttle coming out of corners. So for smaller tracks, I suggest going to smaller gaps especially if you do not have much traction.

It could be that your engine bottom end needle (LSN) is still on the rich side which can perhaps be the problem.

Anyway, if your track is indeed small and tight, the standard 17/22 pinion and 60/56 gearing on the car will be too tall for your track. You can stick to your stock 1st gears and change just change your 2nd gears or you could just gear down to 16/21 pinion and 61/57 on the spurs.

if I have .5mm of pretension, it should engage sooner / lower rpms correct? or is it the other way around?

Yes. If you loosen your pre-tension clutch nut down to 0.5 mm, your clutch should be engaging earlier.

But anyway, I have found that with that setting I have currently on the clutch, the engine does not engage later. Still very responsive. Maybe only very slightly later than when I set to 0.4 mm clutch gap but acceleration wise with 0.7 mm clutch gap is tremendous. Very agressive clutch setting. Perhaps I need to go down to 0.6 or 0.5 mm to tone down the clutch a little or use a bigger 1st gear pinion.

In case not mentioned before, HSP-108250 Hudy Ultimate Setup has been revised on the openings (wider) as well as support block gauge (lightweight).

Have not yet tried mine but looks the wider openings meant for S710.

Hi Ron, you're finally back to the Serpent fold after Ralph Burch leaves Serpent ! How ironic !

Hope you enjoy your stay here and the company we have. Looking forward to your inputs like in the good old non HPI forum days !

That car was shown here on the forum sometime late last year.
It looks like a nice car.
Some may not like it, but I own and run a Veteq, so I like the design.
