Hey there rice, in fact on the smaller tracks, I run on a cement track on a weekly basis and a tarmac permanent track for a moderate high speed track also on a weekly basis. The setups I use are pretty much the same as I have listed. I just change tire shores accordingly and perhaps shock angles (particularly the rear shock).

I don't know how rough your cement track is but we are able to use 40 shore or even 37 shore foam tires. 40 shore would be better as 37 shore would wear a little faster.

Sounds like they're having too much success with their M18 car then eh? No need to sell pewky dogbones to fussy racers like us!

Serpent Ti? You meant 3 Racing...

Didn't you sapu every single titanium 3 Racing stuff when you were back?
More wishful thinking on my part for the Serpent Ti!

Yes, I sapu the 3-Racing (no choice mah) front shaft but the rear one is going to be the Shooter hollow shaft.

Thumbs up Atomic hobbies

Hey baller Atomic is a very reliable shop I have dealt with them and they sell only good products. I am quite sure if you bought something that was defective they would stand behind it. But a gain battery paks all have to be charged when you first get them .They never come fully charged. Hope this helps you out.

Default droop confusion

I'm writing this post to merely ask for some clarification about the downstop suggestions in the setup book. Since increasing downstop means lowering the downstop value, what are you supposed to do when the book suggests to increase/higher/lengthen the downstop, or vice versa? In the case of the book suggesting to increase/higher/lengthen, is the book suggesting that you increase the value, therefore decreasing the downstop, or is it suggesting you lower the downstop value, therefore increasing the downstop?

it means to increase the numerical value. ie on the droop gauge if it is at 7 and it says to increase make it 8

Get BOTH the old one and the new one too! He has one in the touring car and the other one is in the Lola one.
With new one i ment the one he gets after i take the one he now has (old one) And i don't think he will be driving the Lola version cause its illegal at our 200mm International.

I think everybody here will say "Do it, get the 710" but to be honest can't you try before you swap?
