I agree with driving the car out of the box to get a feel for it...What I would like to upgrade is the Brake if possible....

Unfortunately for me the 710 guy had a tuned 3 port he could blast past me with my old SX-12 RE. I was so scared to get the mix wrong, I set the mixture far too rich and my centax second gear kicked in at the end of the straight - man everything was ok when I was testing typical mistakes on race day I suppose

What a day though - the Mugen boys thought I had a tuned engine funny seeing as they could from the start almost get me for the first couple of laps. But I drove smoothly and safely.......and then booted a couple of them from the circuit when they wouldn't let me through revenge, lets say and the 705 being a tank, they came off worst

So... when your 710 makes it's return with a JP, the Mugen guys might like to lay down on the floor and start crying before the race starts?

Saves them the fuel, tyres and embarassment.

Why? She might be there just to support you on your first race and pit for you. Unless of course, her presence made you shake like Gil

Ooops! OK chief ..

Three races: first race 2nd second race 1st third race 2nd
I was beaten by a 710 driver - the Mugen boys where 6 laps down on us in each race. The race was summed over the best two races from the three - the 710 guy beat me by 1.35 seconds

A dominant Serpent display - if you like
And well done to you for your first nitro race!!!

BTW: checked with the border guys, the JP engine uses the Novarossi conrod - but the JP version is cheaper

Thanks, bro! It was a far better result than I had expected. I need to calm down a bit, though, as my driving can be somewhat too agressive at times But that's just lack of experience, cause I'm not an overly agressive person.....ehm, hmmm, just though, in the bicycle races I'm also very aggressive maybe it's just my style
