Yup. The shape looks the same. What RB part number is that? It looks like the stinger is shortened.

What does the newest batch of 710 have i compared to the older ones? The last time I remember when I bought my 2nd 710 was that the fuel tank had a internal filter and thicker shock towers. Im not sure but are there any other newer parts that are currently out that I might not know about?

Default Bag numbers

In the process of building the 710 I have a lot of bags that have A at the end of the bag number such as "Bag - 15A". I'm assuming perhaps incorrectly that there has been an update to the original kit and not the instruction manual.

Can someone who knows more about this than me please confirm.

Why not testing OS carb ? to me it was more proportional throttle movement vs fuels coming out...

The sts carbs tend to sit a lil higher on the engine, so we get a better clerance for the throttle linkage.

I see..

I checked that you were EP racer too.
1 question, did Palmaris can be drove just like electric motor?
I meant, you can squeze the trigger slowly to top slowly and the engine sings proportionally.

With nova carbs, I found (Im just a noobie ) with flush setting of spray bar almost impossible to do that (Nova base engine).
Usually i retard it near to 1mm to make my engine sings like that.

Oh ya, i got new batch of RR lower arm coming in, I will let you know if it new batch already.

OS carbs? Why? I think they are they smallest carbs. Not enough for Nova based engines.

STS carbs are close to ideal because STS engines work about the same as Nova engines. But one thing I found about STS carbs are that they are composite and not aluminum like Nova.

I actually just wanted to try it out and it felt OK. I'm wanting to try out the highest roll center setting (as what I have in my diff setup) with the solid front. I think it will make the car more responsive in the front. I found the car (with front diff) to be very nice in the chincanes with a high front roll center.



Yup. Play around with it. Sometimes I use 1 mm or sometimes I use 2 mm. If I use a lot of caster, I get a lot of on power steering. Too much coming out of the corner that the rear end goes wild. Well, the less caster also helps in the turn in of the sharp corners.
D,

I cannot get the rear down to 197mm since changing rear roll center. The top pivotball is compressed all the way with no space inbetween, is this going to be a problem?

What tires are you using? Offset ones?

Which roll center are you using? UBO/LB? I believe you would need to tighten the top rear pivot ball to the max and then set the rear camber / toe in. The minimum trackwidth I measured was 197 mm I believe. If you have different left and right rear camber, your top rear pivot ball would be screwed in differently.

If you still cannot get to the rear trackwidth, then just get the most minimum that you can get. Watch the rear dogbones. Make sure that it does not bind.
