I have not broken any yet. Just stripped one the other day when I was rebuilding it. I actually have 2 sets of aluminum shocks back from my days of 705 from the 5 sets I have. I use them for my testing purposes instead of draining and refilling them with different shock oils.

MSpeed? You can buy 2 normal Novarossi engines. Apparently speed wise, the Max is about the same or in fact a little faster than the MSpeed. For the price, it's not so worth it.

Kondo?

It's not available here but it is available there in ID?

Default Texas Biggie News at Mytsn

Brandon McNally took the lead immediately with his Serpent 710 and never looked back. Starting from third grid position Brandon timed the start perfectly and was in the lead at the first turn. He never gave up the lead for the entire race. Brandon dominated the field with a 10 lap cushion at the end of the one hour A-Main. Normally this class is so close and competitive, yet Brandon averaged lapping the field every 6 minutes. Brandonís Serpent 710 was equipped with the latest NovaMega SS-12 3 port turbo engine. The horsepower was transferred to the Ellegi six spoke wheels that provided the grip and durability for the one hour main with no tire changes. Congradulation to Brandon and his very fast Serpent 710.

Initial D is correct, it is not worth to get the Mspeed as their motor is not as fast as the Max or JP....most of the things from Mspeed are eyecandy only....nothing improved in the perfromance wise

We just thinking of doing something different... and would like to ask around if they are any good. Mspeed is easier for us to get but yes the price high. I only like it becuase, if not mistaken, all the heatsink moded with air flow... just some sort of marketing issue to use when selling Anyhow, they came up with RR12 version that I really wanted to know.. any change you guys tried that?

I was reading the s710 black book from the link above me and I was thinking do you really need to mod this car this much to get it working properly or is this guy just Hardcore?

I have not heard or seen any Japanese racers use MSpeed engines for races. But I have heard them using Kondo engines. That would be your best bet. They are also not cheap.

He's just HARDCORE.

Seriously, I have not done any mods (except for the clutch) as listed on the webpage to get the car working.
