Thanks for telling me that in German "Sow" means "really" because my wife has been giving me a hard time ... she says "Sow" means "baby pig"!!
Actually it means female pig, but it's also used as a form of intensifying something.

Oh man ... that's just cool. I have to lug around a 12v battery to power my truer!

To be honest I did not really have a bad time the first time around...I just never found the "happy spot" and did'nt feel like looking for it since my MTX3 was dialed. But now I had alittle extra money so I thought I would try again.

Allergies... I'm pretty much tied to running my new M18 inside every dry and sunny day from May to August. I'm the only one hoping for rain midsummer! But after a nice shower and with little wind to spread the pollen, I'm good to go! When the weatherman predicts rain, I hook up my batterycharger.

Errr... I cleaned my car and it's now 6g lighter.

I see ... sorry to hear that. I thought these days may have the anti-hytamines all cranked up perfect but obviously not. Otherwise you would have used them right?

Move over to England then ... it bloody rains here every day so far !

Thumbs up

does anyone know the link to the Kawahare site? I want to order a shock tower. mine broke today... someone rear ended me really bad in the straighway and sent my car into the bushes.

BTW, i had no rear tracktion all day long today and now matter what I tried i coulnt figure it out. i came home thinking that maybe the 710 sucked or my driving.. and, while cleaning my car I realized that my front anti roll bar was disconented. I am assuming this caused my car to oversteer into turns.. hopefuly next weekend ill do better.

I only know Kawahara associated with Mugen MTX3. thats great then if they decide to produce parts for serpent 710. i only know 3 Racing parts. Ohh well...as long as i can get the original parts from serpent...i should be ok.

Have you tried the thicker Serpent item yet? it's a heck of a lot stronger.

Cheers, Mark.

Yep and with my LRP Comp charger, I can charge everything from my Glow-Plug starter to my RX unit, so there is never a problem

Hmm, Sow-Steady would have been ok, but Sow & Steady

Where are you in England? If you're in the west, then forget about RC - it rains virtually all the time. The east is pretty dry, except for this time of year It should only last a couple more weeks, then you'll have some good dry weather

The part number hasn't changed from the original part - yeah, I know, would have been nicer to have a new part number to ensure getting the right part. Order them from www.rccarinternational.com or www.the-border.com and you'll get the right one.
Drop Michel an email (see front page at bottom left) at the-border.com and he'll ensure you get the right part - fast delivery, too!

Cheers, Mark.
