I already spoke with Aaron.
I'm waiting on a dealer packet.
A lot of the local hobby stores are already carrying them.
I'll try and carry them anyways.

Speedmind is being distributed by Magma International Ltd., right?
I'm supposed to call them back tomorrow.
How are their tires by the way?

They are supposed to have the new rear shock tower, new rear arms, and new bumper plates.

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 hate plastic carbs.
I have 2 Sirios, and those carbs have given me the worst time.

Actually I have a few videos of his fingers at work but I can't post them due to copyright reasons ... the videos are commercial ones. Your description is right about the "step motor" looking inputs though!

Talking 2 Liters already gone!

Another sesion at the track today and now I've put through about 2 liters of fuel through the 710 - the car just seems to get better.
I'm still using the one-way, which in the 705 seemed impossible to drive on my track - although my driving has improved a lot Breaking is really not much of a problem - I still have to be careful not to put too much braking force on, but apart from that, the brakes stop the car nicely.
As long as I drive smoothly, then I see no hint of understeer and I can really "boot-it" coming out of the long left-hander onto the main straight.
The left flick is always tricky, due to the bumps at the entrance, but keeping as far over to the left and keeping the lines smooth make it no problem.

In terms of breaking bits.......ehm...... nothing! I even rolled the car today first time I've really got the fast flick wrong and as normal through there, when something goes wrong, it goes wrong big time But even though the 710 rolled a couple of time, I could drive away from the accident without any damage

Tyre wear is still really great and even - I started with tyres all around 62mm and now I have front 61.2mm and rear 60.8mm - and the runs today where pretty hard and fast. I had to run fast today, as there was also a Kyosho FW-05R on the track but even though I wasn't at 100%, I was able to easily catch and pass him

A couple of pictures to show you what my car looks like now after the 2 liters have been used

I am becoming annoyed, not just at the repeated comments, but at having to filter out all of the unneccessary posts when reading this thread.

Good to hear your car is working for you.
I had a close look at the pictures and it seems to me the cooling head is 90 degrees off. The cooling slots in the head meant for airflow over the plug are not aligned front to rear....
