With the Loletta shell and no fuel, front ball diff, 60 mm tires and no PT, mine came in at 1780 grams. I actually put about 80 grams extra on the left side of the car near the tank to balance the car up.

Titanium screws and 2 speed mainshaft only with Tornado external fuel filter.
I also got the tornado fuel filter, now that is a filter, I dont mind the extra size and weight if it has that element in it, at least it will alloe a high flow rate. Those Hudy tools are awesome, I really like them.

What is this I hear Julius is also a diet freak?

Yes, you want to get both sides close. Sometimes you will have extreme corners (like the corner onto the straight at heemstede) which make getting both sides equal very difficult. I usually don't run more than 1 degree difference and accept if there is still a difference.
Woow ! Didn't know that the Heemstede track looks this good from above !

Damn, I hope to go there this year and try my 710 out ! Just bring the car, controller and some basic tools and borrow the others from people like Mark ! <hint, hint>

With the 710 we brought the laptime from 16.7 to 16.17! I hope to get a lap under 16 in before we get a new top layer of asphalt this year. In 1/8th laps of under 15 secs are possible. The track is 275 meters long though...

We even have a 24hrs on-line connected AMB system. You can check your laptimes on the www.mylaps.com site of AMB.

I believe Michael Salven fits it below the front of the bumper. You can also fit it on top. There are two holes on the upper bumper plate.

Else, you could also take a look at how Pyramid mount his on his website.

This is absolutely brilliant, I have heard of after sales service, but this is something different. I must admit, I have never had this kind of service before. We are blessed to have such awesome people designing and distributing such an awesome car.
