I bought 1 secondhand vector and 1 veteq stripped them of the servo's and engine stuff and sold the chassis again. Bought them for 900 euro's. I got 2 RB C4C engines and 2 futaba 9404 servo's, 1 sanwa vb and a hitec 545 with 2 recievers. Got about 200 euro back for the 2 rolling chassis so got a good deal on the engines and the rest of the stuff.

The RB are running superb and the servo's andso are working excellent ( now also in my 710 )

Get your vector nt up and running Mark it will make you just as happy as the 710. Although the nt series is a bit more difficult to work on it 's a very good car.

I think you'll be amazed to see that the speed difference compared to the 710 isn't that much 'cause the little 710 is very leight so power to weight ratio is allmost the same as a 1/8 scale. It looks faster because it's bigger

Ebay is great to buy a bargin and then sell parts of it off at an unbelivable price

Mine was the property of one Karl-Heinz Meister (the ex-German champion and engine god of KHM fame) - some nice modifications where made to it

Yeah, the 1/8th is very popular at my club - about twice as many 1/8ths as 1/10ths Watching them racing is amazing - they are soooooo quick!
I do want to build the Vector NT up, but I don't want to distract myself away from learning my 710 - so much to learn so little time

I know what you mean. I like my 950r but now with the 710 it's really fun. I started with a 1/8 scale so the 710 is more forgiving. Man that thing is really awesome to drive compared to my 950r.

Still learning everything for my 950r. The main differnce is the space you have on the track. With a 1/8 the driving line is smaller so when not on the racingline the car has less grip. With the 710 that racingline is bigger so more space when you make a mistake also the 710 really reacts very good to my steering movements when correcting it and has awesome grip ( a little too much when breaking my rearshocktower due tractionroll )

This is the track I race on. We drive counterclockwise and the track is very fast. Did 16/17 sec while running in my engine.
13,49 is the trackrecord with 1/8 car.

Is this a pressure regulator for the engine - saw something similar at the race last week. The guy with the 710 had some attachment which meant that the fuel system remained pressuried even during no throttle - he said it was analogous to using a capacitor on an electric motor.
He said it really helped the pick up out of the corners.

Anyone have experience of this?
how they install this thing?

between pipe to the tank?

or

between tank to the engine?

or

between the pipe to the engine? ( )


IF they install this thing between the pipe and tank... it would probably VOLUME INCREASE CANISTER.... as discussed here:

VOLUME INCREASE CANISTER THREAD


i hope that is correct? am i?

I think that's what it is - between the pipe and the tank, I think.

It really is a nice track. You'll need lots of confidence in your car to make a good lap 'cause a little mistake and your lost.

The sweeper coming on the straight is the tire terror corner you can take it full throttle but your rightreartire will be gone when doing it full throttle everytime. So tire swap every 1 or 2 tanks.
The corner at the end of the straight is banked so you can take it fast too.

The only corner where we brake is the last corner for the pitlane.

How hard would that be?
I've got a php-based chat software I'm testing now. If you want to try it out one of these days let me know and then we hook up a few guys. Pretty easy and a lot less difficult for the surfer than Java based chat.

There's a messenger system around but I need to find it again. Don't know how hard that'll be yet ...

What was the problem with the Music!?!?!?! Hmm maybe a bit of Pink Floyd or Fleetwood Mac would have been more appropriate, but it was ok - oh man, I think I'm old
Thanks! I must say, I do like it myself even with the Genesis music that everyone if complaining about

Fleetwood Mac eh? Need to look for it for the longer version then

Took the motor apart and it looks like the easy handling with the stock setup messed up the new engine by enjoying it to much.

I have a nova based mugen mr12 can a p/s from a sx 12 be used in the crankcase?

the only thing I noticed yesterday that when on power out of the corner I got a bit of understeer, guess I will use red springs on the rear next clubrace, could be to much power though
Looks spanking new now
