You have to be specific on how short are the tracks where you run... The shortest FDR for the 710 is 7.15 for the 1st gear and 5.09 for the 2nd which I believe is still tall compared to the other cars. The trick to getting good acceleration is building the clutch right. Also, foam tire size also determines the tire rollout and what top speed / acceleration you get out of the car. The smaller the tires, the better it is for smaller tracks.

Like Baxter mentioned, you probably need the front ball diff option or the front solid axle lock pins to lock the front oneway into solid axle so that you get 4WD braking.
