Hey Marcos, I see that those look a lot like Speedmind dish wheels. Are they Monotuning?

Check it out...
Cool. I really wanted to drive at JITC. Looks like a really cool track to drive especially with a 710. Please let me know if any major races are coming up there.

Ummm, about my "weapon"... I don't think I can compare mine to this one below...

Just a biased opinion from me.

That`s my 4th S710.. I`m getting a little bored now as it become less of what more could be done including those all boca ceramics bearing that Goldfinger force me to use. Just for info: 3 racing quality, no doubt, is good. Just the fitment (proper dimension) is the most area that need attention.

Oh yes D, the most unsafe driver (smoking), indeed is `him`.

Is that "D's" real name?
Maybe we might finally uncover the man behind the mask.
Obviously we can't possibly comment on the allegations of D's name, i.e. "you may very well think that, but I couldn't possibly comment"

Hey Mark. Sorry for the incident. Strange that the controller did not go into fail safe mode. A same incident happened to a friend of mine at our local track. The crystal on the receiver loosened out but the car went into fail safe mode and the throttle / brake servo was locked. That was on the 3PK. But I would gather that it would work the same on the 3PJ that you're using. Are you by any chance using Futaba receivers? I thought I remember you mention that you're using something else for the receiver... Perhaps that's why the fail safe did not kick in or supported...



You can try bending it. But if it was me, I'll look at the place where the chassis bent. If it's at the nose BEFORE the first screw mounting where the front bulkheads are secured, then it will not tweak the chassis as a whole. Well, if you leave it, it'll be OK I guess. It'll just be ugly.

If the bend is somewhere in the middle part where the front bulkhead is screwed and mounted, there is a chance that the front part will be tweak.
The Rx on my 705 isn't PCM - big mistake, but I was young and innocent .... ok younger!
I'm going to order one to avoid this happening again.

Yeah, it bent just after the last non-bumper retaining screws on the chassis, so it is just the very tip - a hit with a hammer should do the trick
