In short, this tool is totally awesome !!!

I wish I had one years ago. It makes gap measurement so easy and quick it is crazy! No fumbling with calipers trying to get consistent measurements and having to do any math to calculate your clutch gap or endplay.

The newest version of this tool will work with ALL versions of the Centax clutch (from Serpent and Mugen anyways)... Centax-1, Centax-2, and Centax-3.
Great glad to hear that they updated the tool.I guess it will find its way into my tool box

Default Team Tamale Digital Clutch Tool

For anyone who is interested, I have written a short article about the Team Tamale Digital Gap and Endplay Tool on myTSN at:

http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=10173


This is a great tool that makes Centax clutch building/adjustment very quick and easy. Team Tamale also offers several other products and tools for RC cars.

Aha! So it IS coming. COOL!

Does that include the wait for the other hop-ups mentioned a while back for the 710 ?

$140 isn't too bad.
I would like to try one out before investing on one though.

Check out this page.
http://www.serpent-usa.com/serpent/sernew_1.html
That's what Serpent USA should be releasing soon.
I don't see the solid rear axle or the CVD's yet.
I might be mistaken, but I think the CVD's for the 950R are on that list.
Hopefully they'll be out for the 710 soon.

Default Mazda 6 Wing

Hey D,
Did you cut out those little slots on your wing?
It doesn't look like you did.
I remember when people were testing the Protoform LMP 1/8 body.
They found that the body was better when cutting out the slots.
Here's a quote from Mytsn.

"After a good weekend of 1/8 practice, I felt the Protoform shell(after opening up the rear slots) the car was much much better. The car turned better than before. REALLLLYYY... stable, point and just squeezzzee the trigger. No matter what..it'll go where u want it."

I just wanted to know if anyone tried the Mazda 6 with the slots cut out on the wing.
If you did, let me know how it handles.

You got it buddy, especially the Ti shafts!

I think CVDs are even-stevens, depends on one's preferences

What slots are you referring to? You mean the aero wings that go on the middle of the wing like the Alfa 2.1? I don't use them. It increases straight line stability if I'm not mistaken but takes out steering.

They should fit ! Team Serpent in Holland uses them predominantly.

I'm not talking about the fins that you could add on.
I'm talking about the holes that are cut out in the picture.
It's sort of hard to see it, but it's in the middle of the wing.

but who care, we normally won't reach the top end anyway
Like I mentioned before, the FW05R car is very suited for small tight tracks. But on big tracks, you need to modify their gearing properly. Else, you get a toast engine.

If you want the same kind of acceleration as the stock geared FW05R (1st gear FDR of 7.47) with 62 mm tires, you need to gear the 710 with 16/61 (1st gear FDR of 7.15) with a tire diameter of 59 mm to get the same kind of launch.

As for the 2nd speed on the 710, use 21/57 (FDR = 5.09) with 59 mm tire diameter to match with the FW05R's FDR of 5.44 with 62 mm tires if you think that the top end of the FW05R is suited for your track.
