The Serpent front kit tires (Ellegi 6 spoke rims) are zero offset and will clear the knuckles fine. I don't think there is any front offset tires made by Ellegi or GRP for that matter. I only know that FAST tires (made by GRP and similar rubber to Ellegi) have REAR offset tires for MTX-3.

Of course not ! It was too fast for me to go full throttle !

Yeah, he did tell me about it. I'm surprised. There must be something wrong I guess or just a bad apple. Everybody I know gets the Massimo to sing really well. I would think it's one of the more reliable engines out there.

Default front bumper plates ?

Any news on when are the new lower bumper plates gonna be released?

I'm running in a rather small and technical track and even though I'm crashing less... the bumpers don't take notice of this

Serpent was out of stock and so all of their dealers (sign that I'm not the only one cracking low B plates)

To finish a race I did a pretty good fix with 5 min epoxy and than wrapping the low B plate in heat shrink (before the epoxy sets) . You cut out whats needed of the shrink plastic and you're ready to go in about 15 minutes. The fix is very sturdy.

Welcome ! Go to http://rc.kel-ain.com and on the top page is a FAQ compiled by Markp27. Read it as it has almost everything there. That would save you some time.

Yes, they do rub at the slightest bend. Ellegi wheels are soft and can warp. If you use harder dish rims like the ones made by FAST or Ellegi or even by Speedmind, they are pretty hard.

The best knuckles for the 710 is still the stock FC knuckles. If you use the knuckles meant for stock 705, it will be even worst off. Not many rims can be used.

If you really need to offset the front wheels, you could use DIY spacers. Use lexan pieces thrown off from your bodyshell and cut it to shape by tracing the hex wheel adaptor nut.
