I'll stick with the Impact one then.

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.

They are both great fuels and would not use any other than those two! I just didn't have a pic of Rocket Science. Locals tried maxey's here and seem to not like it.

It is, Marcos - difficult to say as the engine I had in my 705 really didn't perform so well It seems to be reasonably good, but the TP06 is a lot better

Do you guys think that A JP FX .12 Engine would be a hot setup in my new 710, becuase I have got a way flexible budget now.

Default loose tail and tire wear

I had a good 3 hours practice today, My Mario Rossi was really "singing" I found the sweet spot I should have thrown away the tuning screwdriver at that moment but I couldn't resist the impulse of making it just a little bit better.... It started to bog ... so I had to start all over again

The clutch is finally doing good with the mod and glenn's tips

I have the standard setup (I'm in novice class) My driving is somewhat sloppy still so I'm drifting a lot in corners, specially at the exit. Note that the car has enough guts to be in the A main, and in my hands its a lot of badly controled power. Anyway I'm managing to stay in the track pretty decently but with a lot of "tailing" . I ended paractice with 59.6mm rear and 62mm in the fronts

The car has good steering into the turn but comes out with much oversteer

If anyone has some helpful advise it will be much appreciated

With stock tires? it is 40F and 35R

Find 37F and 37R, use 40wt serpent oil shock or 70wt(for trinity/asso) and replace the yellow spring with the red one.
Use default for the rest.

Post the result again.

Have a look at your diff settings - too tight and it'll make the rear slide under power. Make sure you start off with a loose setting first of all - but make sure that the diff itself hasn't come loose and not just the external adjuster.
Another thing to check (something that happend to me once ) make sure the front pulley hasn't come loose - i.e. that the front wheels aren't being driven.

Cheers, Mark.

I think stock is quoted as 40F/37R.

Is 40wt Serpent oil really 70wt Assos? I've bought loads of Assos oil for my Tamiya - the bottles are huge (possibly 4 times as big as the Serpent ones! )

Cheers, Mark.

From kit to kit, the Front tire is very stable on 40 (duro C type-ball tipped), the rear tire is jumping around 35 - 37 rating.

Feels like that, not exactly.

Guys... anybody have a durometer ?
Last week I bought one, and Im really really dissapoint to buy that tool. If I may suggest DONT BUY !

Why ? gave you a headache
Like someone mentioned in tires forum, IT DOES NOT GAVE A CONSTANT MEASUREMENT IN EACH SPOT !
Every brand is around the same, the most "expensive" was giving smallest tolerances.
One thing that really interesting is.. shore rating is true when it is new. After 5 or 10 minutes runs and when cools enough (ambient/room temperature) the shore is became 1 step harder.
When the tire is less than 59mm, the shore is 2 step harder.

Im I alone? is there any "Tire-Guy" here that can explain that facts?

After sharing my confusion here, now Im gonna sell my durometer
