I mean when there is no engine my second gear does spin freely but I have to hold down first gear with my finger. My question to you guys is on your 710's when you spin the gear box with your fingers with no engine installed do both gears spin or just 1

I assume you're spinning the 2nd gear counterclockwise. It should spin freely by itself. If not, then the white 2 speed shoes may be rubbing slightly inside the 2nd spur bell. Did you tighten the grub screws too hard? Set the spacing as per Step 9.2 on page 29 of your 710 manual.

No those were the last laps of warmup before the start.

It wasn't that bad!

Default Some testings...

I did some minor test over the weekend. With the black Centax shoes, spring collar at 1 mm, stock Centax spring, clutch gap at 0.7 mm, modded / cut flyweights assembled in between the post and with two M3x4 set screws on each flyweight, the acceleration and punch was fantastic. As I still do not have the yellow shoes, I cannot comment on it's performance yet.

Default Wishful thinking...

I don't know if anyone would agree with me but I find the eccentric cam inserts on the bulkhead that holds the oneway / diffs only providing ONE notch to tighten the belts a little bit too little. I don't see why anybody would loosen their belts up to 3 notches. I'd rather have extra notches to tigthen the belts because at the end of the day, the belt loosens over time. Option to be able to have more notches to tighten the belt is very useful because I find that the belts really last. I end up junking a good belt not because it has lost it's teeths but because the front belt was too loose to be used.

I notice that especially if I soak the belts with silicon spray, the belts lengthen a little bit. Therefore when new, the belts are already loose at the tightest eccentric cam setting !

Perhaps we can all join in to send a petition to Serpent to have this eccentric cam part revised in the future 710 kits. Just some of my musings...

hey guys put the 710 on the track for the first time, i can confirm that the car is not made of glass I car handle real good with the stock set-up. Did not have any springs to test some set ups. Unfortunatly no one showed up to race but 5 guys so just did some laps.

Hi Crashed and everyone. I hope its not Mark's picture was on the site but rather a picture of the true inner person behind the hacker.

I'm afraid I can't do much to prevent further attacks like that except:-

1- report the details to the relevant authorities and ..
2- start a search on either an alternative CMS or look for security patches.

In the meantime, I managed to put the site back on-line. I don't know how long it will last before it gets hacked again but enjoy 3Hobby.Com NOW while it lasts!

Thanks for the report on your test. I was in two minds as to which mod to try with this rebuild ... I'll this stock one first now.

Default Novarossi NSR12S3 or NS12S3

My LHS has a novarossi NSR12S3 and the NS12S3, I know that the NSR's are microcasted and the NS's are cnc machined but what I don't know is which of the the two is better in performance in terms of torque and RPM. Your recommendation will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The 710 should be in the league (if not better than other cars) if driver and engine variables remain equal. If you have any question, do not hessitate to shoot.
Thanks for your imput. There is a lot of information on there. I will print it up and read tonight at work. Couple more questions for you...
Why does the 710 have longer shocks in the rear, and will my JR XS3 reciever fit in the receiver box.

Hi PMR,

My apologies for the long time in replying.
I have not been on the forum for a few days.

I personally don't use that method for modified flyweights, but others have done it with success. I use the original flyweights (on the pins) and add a small weight to the far end. I don't use the 3 separate flyweights cut from the single clutch shoe.

Regards,

Smile Hi all !

Sorry for the long time away.
Been busy with work, and went out to practice on the weekend.

InitialD, happy birthday !!!!

Mark, got my engine issue sorted out on the weekend. Now it is broken in, runs strong, and runs cool.

Sow&Steady... sorry to hear about your site being hacked. I was looking for that article about shortening the S710 wheelbase, but did that get removed?
