Fully agree.

That's true.
But then again he still needs to buy a new car and a new engine since he sold both for only $50.
That's probably why he's going around bashing the 710, because he has no car to mess around with.

Hey, is that a new trick you're planning to do to free up the drive train?



Well, I think as long as you manage to break in the piston sleeve afterwards, it should be OK. Don't think it's completely toast. Perhaps Serpent should put a warning in the front of the kit saying that if you're breaking in the engine, be careful not to overdo it and get carried away driving the car too much !







Didn't you get the new rear shock tower with the 710? Get the new one which is thicker. Still running mine.


Yes it was much overtime building the kit in 14 hours from saturday afternoon till sundaymorning

Gues the drivetrain is very smooth now then hey

I did richen up the needles allmost a full turn but when running the car is was driving so smooth I didn't realize I was driving that hard and I didn't touched the needles only by the fourth tank I leaned 1/8 turn on the main


No I think I got the old 3mm one. Traction rolled the car without the body on the thirth tank. Rideheight with the new tyres made it roll and broke the tower. I can still drive wirh it 'cause it's not completly broken in half.

Ah! I finally posted something sensitive?

Actually I'm in the same boat ... when I saw his car I wondered why we all do what we do to our cars and engines.

My Studio 8 is basic, would loooove to use iMovie ... first I'd have to dump my 2 G3s and go for the G5.



Oh, don't let me dream of that But actually, my mate who won with the 710 is around about 0.5 seconds a lap quicker this year - same motor just a change from 705 to 710
Hate to say it but I told you so!

I'm Slow&Steady with the 705 and now I must admit I'm SlightlyFaster&Steady with the 710

I must admit, my first impression is WOW, the car just responds... the clutch is a little slippy (saw to it, will test soon) but it is such a pleasure to drive, you turn, and it turns. I had the solid axle in the front... WOW!!!

Hey, that's sensitive too !

Crashed_1 is asking if you have the whole vid of the race taped... He wants to view it and imagines driving the car when he's not on the track !

I'd like to get a G5, too, but I really prefer laptops, so I'm now considering the newest powerbook - maybe I'll wait until Tiger comes out, as there is bound to be another powerbook update at the same time.

Only sensitive? Not tickly too?

Yes, I have the whole race on tape. Started making the mpeg and seeing that most of you guys are voting 512 kbps or greater on the survey, I don't feel so bad posting a longer video

I'll need to edit some of the tape: you know, sensitive images, shaky hands and that sort
