my question is, do i want too much, am i loco? or is it normal?
COOL, you are not loco to us, but to the people who have not tried racing... I also want a few other cars, and I was also thinking of a little car, but also I was thinking of a 705 to toy around with.

Youre right man, for people who have not tried R/C racing, it might sound like a stupid idea, but for guys like us, what really matter is the fun and enjoyment we get from racing.

BTW, I have a very mint condition Serpent 705 for sale, you might want to check it out. Please PM if you're interested. Thanks.

Thank you sooo much for the offer... I have just bought my 710 and am just a little broke, I will only buy in the next few months. If you still have it then we can have a look. I saw a good thing recently...

It said like... the best way to wake up is with NITRO in your cup... or something similay, it is in a previous post I think...

I have just spotted that on the Traxxas website that they have a lifetime engine replacement program... Only problem is that they charge $100 for it. This is a good price for here, but you can get a new angine for that. I suppose they just recycle the engines by replacing the sleeve and piston and the bearings if needed and then give it to someone who needs. This is a great idea if you think about it as 1) you dont get as many angry custommers about engines. 2) make money as you neaver really need NEW engines, only in new kits...

We have approx. 21 square feet of skin

During exercise we can sweat 2 pints an hour and

Our muscles produce enough heat to boil several cups of coffee (helps to understand heat related emergencies a little better, eh?)

We have enough carbon in our bodies to make 1000 pencils and

Enough Phosphorous to make 3000 match heads

Our femur can absorb a 1/2 ton of pressure

Our hands have more parts controlled by more muscles than any other part of our body

We are capable of processing over 10,000 different smells

Our brain dedicates more space to vision than all the other senses combined

If every citizen in every city were calling everyone in the phone book (at the same time) it might come close to how many connections our brain makes in a second

Pasted from http://www.angelfire.com/co/fantasyf...bodyfacts.html

HEHE, no more plagierism...

But this is nothing compared to the
Serpent 710

Intial D,

I am kicking the idea around. I am not sure why though, my Mugen has been performing flawlessly but I still have a desire to run the 710 again.
