Same situation Mark is in...
Well, almost 3 days of solid rain now - not one minute has it stopped
Kevin, at least you're further west than I am - it should stop there earlier than here

I'm off to the indoor track now with the Surikarn - at least it'll be dry there ..... I hope!

I haven't seen the forecasts, I'm only 20k from the German border. But I don't want it to be too dry due to allergies...

I could be having fun with my X-ray M18 right now if only my cats would stop chasing it to chew on the antenna.

I was told to use the shortest line from the tank to the carb ! Best throttle response. As for the pressure tubing from tank to pipe, some say shortest is also the best. I use about 8 inches long and do not have any problems.

Yup, that's the one. The manifold is the same one used on all the .12 Novarossi / NovaMega inline pipes.

Yup, that's the one. The manifold is the same one used on all the .12 Novarossi / NovaMega inline pipes.
My fuel line was 10" but I managed to bring it back to 8.5" (not including filter). I can probably go to 6~5.5" by drilling the hole if problems turn up. I'll do the same with the 705/RS12T5.

Good! That manifold is $22 and pretty much the only loose .12 one rc-mushroom has... And i'm building an order there as we speak.

Thanks!

S2? Of course, its my favourite. I never drove the 710 there but my 705 with the floating rear mount did pretty well the last time it went out ... A4 final ... ahem!

The last race I did there was with my MTX3 though and I suffered from instsability. Still got to A but I can't remember where I ended up at the end. Definitely bottom 5 I think.

Aiyaya yaya! Maybe I need to introduce you to some friends I know who raced in the southern state of Malaysia last year. They continued with the race even though it was monsoon rain pouring down!

As for my bags, still waiting for D to sponsor the ticket. If he does mine I'm sure he'll sponsor yours too. Then we go .. you carry my bags and I'll carry yours!

Mark, Serpent came out with the front rammer with integrated body posts. I bought one and they (the body posts) broke after 1 race.

I recommend staying with the original touring body posts. Only problem is you have to cut out the upper bumper plate to fit the Lola.
