They didn't even have the prototype of the 1/8 F1.
I did talk with a guy from Hudy.
He said that they are still working on an updated setup tool for the 710.
Good pics PSI. you're lucky to get to go to RCX, I just get to see the article in Xtreme mag!

If you meant HSP-108250 Hudy Ultimate Setup... the new revised one already available. If something elses, please keep us posted.

Here is the original question:


When I responded, I meant that the position of the lower arm has no effect on the CG of the car, but will of course have an effect on the RC of the car.
Yes, it was me who meant the wrong thing... Actually, I do not even sure what I'm looking for

I think Julius mentioned this before.
Kevin, thanks for the info. Yes, Julius mentioned about that. I guess from the 15 grams savings on the titanium screws and another 15 grams on the shafts, that's great !

Oh Harry, you're fighting an unworthy cause. Get a life trying to convince people that Serpent is made in China ! Get back to your own threads or if not at least post something useful here.

Besides, you never know that the 100 odd cars you own (including NTC3 and R40) are made in the good old China (whatever that means).

Ummm, I thought Pyramid or Goldfinger mentioned that the setup tools are already coming with holes that are aligned for the 710...

Check if you missed out installing the 1 mm aluminum spacer in between bearings (909514) that goes in between the 2 normal 5x10x4 bearings. See step 8.7 on page 28 of the manual.

PSI Racing, are those rubber wheels on the Impulse Carbon or are they foam tires? If they are foam tires, can you ask them if they are the new Ellegi rims? They look like they came from the 1/8th scale wheels...

BTW, keep the pics coming. Excellent !

Julius Why didn't you start in the a-main of the first nk 200mm at Heemstede? 'cause of the rain? Saw young Miquel Hereijgers training at Ruchpen with his new 710 very nice to watch. Was doing allmost 18 laps in quali.

I was on standby for work that day and got called just after the first qualifier and had to fly to Sao Paulo for five days...

So my TQ time of the first heat was best time of the day which gave me tenth place in the final.

Miquel was quite fast on the Heemstede track also. He has a good style. Fast but tidy and controlled.
