Here's a pic of the finished product.

Cheers, Mark.
Nice! Hope you get as much enjoyment as i do out of mine!

Default I'm Finished Too

Hey guys just finished building my 710, what a great car. The Last car i built was the Impulse, what a big difference.

I'm still whating on my power plant (Nova). Hopefully, i will be racing next week.

I would like to think Serpent to building a great car and thank you guys on the thread for helping.

This car was one of the smoothest cars i build, can't wait to test it at the track

Cool Ron. Show us some pics when you're done. Today is already Friday and it's pics time again.

1. Make sure that the 5.2 mm inner diameter ring of the thrust bearing piece is installed nearer to the clutch shoes.

2. Shim the end play as per step 8.7 on page 28 of the manual. Allow very little end play.

3. Grease the thrust bearing. I use Mugen Super Grease and they last even after a few weekends. Very sticky stuff.

All the steps above if followed religously, you won't have to buy any thrust bearings from your LHS anymore.

I think with all cars, it's about the same. I guess more on Serpent. Conspiracy theory with Hudy again?

Congrats Mark. So another day gone without preparations for your bike outing?

That car looks to sweat to play ! Nice job.

Oh yes, I think the roll axis play more important role for that matter.



http://home.tiscali.be/be067749/58/

In terms of car handling, this means that the end where the link is angled down the most (highest RC) has the most grip initially, when turning in, or exiting the corner, and that the end with the lowest RC when the chassis is rolled will have the most grip in the middle of the corner. So if you need a little more steering in the middle of the corners, lengthen the front upper link a little. (Be sure to adjust camber afterwards) If you'd like more aggressive turn-in, and more low-speed steering, either set the rear upper link at less of an angle, or increase the front link's angle a little.

If you're planning to go outlaw, then 5 port engines are nice to have especially on larger tracks. Else, 3 port engines are plenty powerful already especially the SS Novamega versions. Which 3 port Novamega version are you planning to get?
