I drive the big tracks with the oneway for sure, they say it's hard to switch back and forth since the driving is different but I don't mind. I have been fairly sucessful at the small tracks with using the solid axle up front so I will give your setup a try. Is there another setup you use for your front ball diff?
It's true that driving a oneway and a full time 4WD needs different driving styles. That is why I am really wanting to go back to oneway. I have actually driven oneway all my time with the Impulse and 705. I only tried diff and front solid when I got the 710.

For the front ball diff, the same setup as per the front solid was fine except I thought I changed to all around 40 shore tires instead of using softer front. Then I started playing around with a different setup. That too worked out pretty well on small and medium size tracks.

************************************

I used a little more droop due tot he track being bumpy. I tried playing with 4 x 1.2 mm hole shocks with 35wt oil and yellow springs. It works quite OK for our bumpy tracks. Sometimes it makes it too bouncy especially with the problem I had in the rear ball diff outdrive. Perhaps I will try 40wt or even 50wt with 5 x 1.2 mm holes like our friends in Holland and see how it goes.

Just read the article.. I think it is great for that impact (which I`m not aware of as I never owned one). I`m wondering if the battery could not be taken out like most of current car nowdays? Thats quite a lot of works in order to be able to do the charging procedure faster in my opinion (unless the battery could not get out easly as nowdays cars).. and still involving removing one lead and plug the charger lead. What is the different with using extension cord coming right out from the receiver and connected directly to the battery pack? still the same 2 step procedure, take out and plug into the charger.

But hey... those article are from 2002 with a very nice on off switch that I never knew it existance. I believe he also did write tips on installing an on/off switch to the S710.. why dont you get an on/off switch with charging lead option instead? this way you will have only 1 step to charge your battery which is just plug that charger lead in
My problem is that the KO switch has some other battery cable, which I modded and it now seems like it will work, however, it does not turn on the receiver or servos, so, in my frustration, I removed it and now have a plug, so so switch on, I plug the battery in, and unplug when it is over, like Dee, I think. I will check the switch later, I think it is a loose connection to the receiver cos my charger picks up the switch and the light on the switch comes on, but no response from the servos. I have all my wiring quite neat, but I will add some protection as the may rub on the ground lightly when the chassis bottoms out.

I believe you're trying to increase the idle screw in order not to make your engine die due to the rich LSN setting. Decrease the idle screw and lean the LSN. I believe the problem will go away.
That could be it my engine skills are now way behind everything else - too much time spent with the Surikarn

Ummm, I think Golfinger is blaming the 3 of us for the 15 or so extra pages on this thread. Not about cleaning up the stock at rcmushroom !

Talking about swiping the stock , somebody comes back home from time to time to bring back the loot to UK ! No wonder we're having stock problems with items like tires and Serpent parts ! Racers in UK are having a wonderful time I guess...

It's not even Monday and the brain is already mushy? Perhaps too much radiowaves...

You mentioned that your 2nd speed engagement was not constant...

What did you hit to break your car?
You must be rich to buy a $350+ car and sell it for only $50.
That's a $300+ loss.
Did you have the upgraded parts?

Definately the microwaves plush the shock that my boss has left the project now I'm responsible.

The 2nd speed was simply that I had the screws too loose - the 2nd gear came in too early. I'll be rebuilding it tonight and have a closer inspection, though

But with it being a glass car, he probably had to sweep the bits up off the track - not much worth in a load of old broken up glass

Too bad Serpent didn't make his car out of plastic and carbon fiber.
Maybe he wouldn't of had to sweep up all that glass.

I'm glad that my 710 wasn't made out of glass.
