There's actually no problems with the 705 rear diffs. The only thing was that like the NTC3, you could not adjust the ball diff on the fly. You need to loosen the grub screw which is difficult to access. Else, if you try to loosen the rear diff externally without loosening the grub screw, you'll end up with the rear end loosing drive.

There's a simple solution to that which is to use loctite. There was some instructions compiled with regards to building a bullet proof ball diff posted on the 705 thread. One that would make the ball diff able to adjust externally even without the use of the external diff adjuster hop up.

I further went ahead to use the FPS pulley on the normal ball diff because that one protects and closes the diff balls better. Also, not that it's a serious problem but it takes away the wobble found when you install the stock pulley. And yes, lastly the FPS diff pulley is wider and does not make the rear belt slip like what some people have complained...
Thanks guys!

How about my weight question?

I believe this is with engine and pipe. Else, it would be a laughing stock if Rene would have quoted the weight without engine and pipe...

Imagine, the engine alone is about 200 grams. So the total weight would be somewhere 1900 grams? That would be absurd.

Yes, no grub screw is used. Only loctite.

What is it that i see in the lower right corner
It doesn't look like an FPS or ball diff
How could you see in that pic? If I were you, I cannot even make out if it's a ball diff or a FPS ! But thrust me, it's an FPS you're seeing (or not seeing)...

Cool. I assume you got your kit at the cheapest place available? How much did you get it for?

Whatever... As long as you get a kick from saying "I just got myself a spanking new Mugen" on the 710 thread !

Default Huge Box

Woow, look what do we have here? An early Santa's gift from tIANcI? Nah, it's not a Mugen. Or is that from Santa in Nuremberg?

Oh, also look how dirty the one way front diff is (bottom right corner of the box)... No wonder he could not get the car to brake straight ! (j/k)

I don't know how you do it but I don't think any amount of Photoshop filter will do the job ! Perhaps you're lucky that the one way is hidden underneath the car all the time...

Yup. It actually got stuck in the customs... Well everything went OK. No tax. Convinced the guy it was used parts. Just had to show him the one way bearing !

Nice one!!! I put on the box that it was a gift Thought that may have helped - but proviing that it was second-hand is even better.
Probably felt sorry for you that you'd paid good money for that junkie One-Way

Really? Didn't see the word gift... Anyway, when the guy saw the description Model Car Kit (which I actually hopped it was a 710 ), he wanted to tax me but I convinced him upon opening the (HUGE) box that it only consisted of parts... I'll have to admit that the one way bearing made it more credible !

Oh yes, could you have gotten a BIGGER box?
