Yes, I think Julius suggested to use the 801219 aluminum pivot balls in the rear of the 705. That's what I'm currently using.

I believe if you use use -4 to -5 camber, your trackwidth exceed beyond 200 mm a lot with the stock upper rear arms. What I do is I modify the rear upper arms to shorten it so that I can still use -3 camber under 200 mm (198 mm actually). The rear pivot ball threading also need not be exposed too much.

Yes, I noticed this too and the FC steering blocks did not crack when the pivot ball pop out !

Mine, bleeding slowly through the shaft when I put it in the stand overnight. So I must use the old red ones instead the low-friction purple Oring. But this purple is doing very fine job in the composite body.
Any idea to solve this?

Nice tricks !! I must try this..

Actually I did the 5deg. camber with optional 8mm wheel hub.
Only works in touring post, track width is almost 200mm
Doesnt work in lola style, coz the wheel is scrubbing the mounting arm.

I wonder if aftermarket rc companies have started to make option parts for the 710? probably see many aluminium options parts over the next couple of months.....

Yup, the optional narrower wheel hex nuts work. I use them on my Impulse PRO to get the rear trackwidth below 200 mm.

The other thing that I do not like about narrower hex wheel adapters is that it makes the thread of the drivecup where the wheel nut goes in to be exposed a lot. Very susceptible to breakage if you happen to hit it directly. Happened once to me.

First time I'm hearing this... What about putting some AE green slime in the o ring?

Perhaps your aluminum shock body where the shock shaft hole is located is loose due to wear... Does this happen to all your aluminum shock bodies?

First time, it cames from my friend, coz i didnt use it before, im very satisfied with stock composite.
But when I try it myself for 2 RR alu body with TRY#90 shock oil, yes ! it bleeds trough the shaft in the morning. Then I replace it with the red ones and it was doing fine till now.
And trully I have not try do it again.
