Lovely, thank you. What would you suggest for the receiver pack, I have a wall charger for them, bet you only get about 80% charge from them. I am sure that the starter will run for months on those packs.
I use a "Robbe lader 5" to charge everything I have:
- 5 cell packs 700-1100mAh (receiver and xray m18)
- 8 and 9 cell transmitter packs 1800-2250mAh
- 6 cell starterbox packs 3000mAh
- 12V accu 7200mAh (other cars starterbox)
- 1.2V glowplug igniter

It's not a fast charger (ports: 2x 60mA, 1x 140mA, 1x 180mA and 1x 500mA), but it can charge everything.
I have 2 of em (about 25 Euro each), so I can charge two 3000mAh packs in 6-7 hours at 500mAh.

As for those 3300 packs in the starterbox... they will last closer to a single weekend.

Why not take the Novarossi NSR12?

Why would you want to charge your receiver packs at a lower rate? 500 mAH would be ideal.

Because I always forget to unhook them after the calculated time. Which is not that big of a problem for the packs when charging them slowly.

A lot of more complicated and expensive chargers can only handle packs with certain numbers of cells, so I think my simple chargers are ideal. But it's all in what one prefers...

I like the sound of the JP - if it turns out to be better than the 2106, then it'll go in the 710

it is $25 and the track opens at 8:00 am start racing around 10:30 - 11:00 with 3 qualifiers on saturday and 2 qualifiers on sunday and all A mains will be 30 minutes.On non-race weekends i believe that is $10 for all day practice.

As for the pipe, you may want to try a Novarossi / Novamega manifold that comes with their inline pipe and pair it up with yout RDLogic pipe. Makes the overall pipe shorter. Very good on long high speed tracks.
No tuning problems so far, during break-in... Maybe when I lean it out more. I must say the RS12T5 on my 705 was a b**** to tune with the same length, never figured it could be the fuel line... What is the longest you would go with a fuel tube?
I could make an extra hole in the radioplate next to the tank, closer to the fuel filter. That would take up to 3" off without touching the side belt.

As for the manifold; would Novarossi 40603 work?
The local track here is more of a medium track, not nearly as fast as MACH Heemstede, but I want to try everything.
