Fantastico ! That's the outlaw version BTW. The EFRA one is 52606.

They are actually the same as the NovaMega TP06 ones...

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

That car looks to sweat to play ! Nice job.
Yep only done 240km this week on the bike I'll cycle to my LHS tomorrow, I think - get paint, crystals and power extention cable (for battery) - that'll get me a good 120km

I've certainly learnt a lot from building the 705 last year, so the building of the 710 was from my side much better - not to forget that everything just fitted perfectly! or maybe I'm just imagining that. I didn't realise how crap the 710 was until I read the G4 thread - seems you did a good job there D

Yep, it has been a long time. But the problems came from my LHS and not my bike. First my LHS couldn't supply the motor, it was on back order for about two months and for whatever reason he couldn't get any in stock and then my other LHS couldn't supply my two servos - waited two months for those, too Eventually I gave up the the LHSs and ordered the motor and servos from www.the-border.com - all was delivered within a couple of weeks
Bike riding is more like a drug than fun - need to do it, but I'm not sure if I enjoy it or not

Yes, the 710 is indeed a crap car.

Default The birth...it's a boy!

All, I'm now the proud father of a new born. Just minutes ago it came to this world. A healthy young 710, weighing about 1.5kg & 41cm in length. Here is a picture of him on the operating table.
