www.rc-mushroom.com has the 3PK for $250 (metallic) and $275 for the black metallic. You can probably get one shipped to you for under $300.

OK when you accelerate your are pushing the return spring and when you brake you not pushing the spring, now when you lose power (battery) the return spring will push the servo arm to the minimum acceleration or idle, which is what you are looking for.

I had already two experiences with batteries and it had worked perfect.

On the Impulse I have it the other way but it is the same, now because I do not have a digital servo on the Impulse the servo it is not as soft as the digital when no power is apply.

I noticed in my car that there seems to be a problem with the 61t spur, as it seems to be excentric. That is, mesh can be good in one position, but when the spur is rotated the mesh changes. In that case, mesh can change from Ok to too loose, or too tight.
This is a point for Serpent has to look at.
I'm still using the 61T spur. I'll report back if anything happens.

The thinner copper 0.1 mm shim should go first and then followed by the thicker 0.3 mm aluminum shim. The thicker aluminum shim will protect the thinner copper shim when it goes on top of the piston liner.

I notice that at the first instance, the gears should be mesh tight. Then when the car is run for a few tanks, the gears "loosened" up. And even though it's smooth and rotates more freely, it will not strip. That's what I notice on mine.

Ummm, I don't know if jhigga15 refers to radio as in WITH the servos or not. I think the radios from RCMushroom does not come with servos...

If I had a limited budget, I would invest in good servos and a normal Tx/Rx.

Hi,

I just started to build my 710 and due having the first step have the wrong part (two left side lower bulkheads, no right side, lol) I started on other parts and build the shocks and radio tray. Which leads me to ask...

what were they thinking but the rx and servo's right in the path of fuel overflow? Has anyone has issues with this? Its kinda hard to protect the rx or put it in a bag since there isnt much room and the wires wouldnt quite fit... Anyone have insight into this?

I'm running 16/61 1st gear combo and going through about one spur a week! I'm making sure it has the proper mesh and making sure my motor mounts are secure but still stripping.
Thanks guys for all of the replys on this topic!

I'm going to try Master D's methods on the mesh of the spur and pinion..........a tight mesh. Also I may try Pyramid black book mod.

I still have that little bit of NTC3 in me...
