Nice one Glenn!!! So after the engine is run in, it simply runs cooler?

Cheers, Mark.

Unhappy Removing oil from tyres

It was great to drive the 710 again today, after using the 705 for a while, whilst I sorted out my motor problems - the car is so precise beautiful to drive again.

However, I was having real problems with spining - under braking, the rear end would snap out really easily - not something I had experienced with the 710 uptil now. Also through the fast flick ocasionally the car would spin on the apex I was checking my tweak and all kinds of stuff in order to find out why - but I found nothing to explain it
Then one time through the flick, the car spun out into the grass and I had to go and retrieve it....then I saw it the blinking 1/5th lawnmowers had been dropping oil all over the circuit and right on the apex of the fastest corner on the circuit.
I check my tyres and they are loaded with lawnmower oil I was trying to test a set of Enneti dished rims, but now it is pointless.

Is there an easy way of gettng the oil out of the foams or are they essentially ruined

That's great to hear ... so only at 90C and the JP Fx screams eh? Just you wait till you properly tune it!

Were you using a 1-way?

Hell! That's the same as using TWO 1-ways, one in front and one in the back!

Return the favour ... leave thumb tacks for their next run! See how the big boys handle a flat tyre or two

Easy, soak them in soapy water ... leave to drip dry indoors. Well, that's what I do after a day on an oily. dirty track. Seems to work OK

BTW, foams get progressively worse with light and dry air, the "honeycomb" structure go brittle and dry. Store foams in a sealed plastic conainer or bag somewhere cool and dark if you have a lot of sets of different shores.

Unfortunately we don't have these brands in Germany - what are these products exactly - probably there is an alternative.
I'm going to try with washing-up liquid.

Cheers, Mark.

Well, got it upto 100C and this thing absolutely screams - it's more like the 1/8th 3.5 Motors in terms of sound

Only the one true path

Good idea, bro!

Wanted to try this, but wasn't sure if the detergent was strong enough - I'll see how it works out

Green There maybe a red version, too though. I remember this as a kid - oily bike chain, oily hands, upset mother I love the smell and feel of swarfega nothing beats it - never seen it here in Germany I'll have to get a tin of it when I'm next in the UK

Yep. 4 different colours that I have seen so far - red, green, yellow and blue. One has no grit at all and the rest has different sizes particles depending on your needs. A drop of this in the petrol will slow those big 1:5th cars down a bit

My goodness! It's a long time since I've used Swarfega (probably 20 years!) - they've gone all modern

Good tip about the petrol I'll tell them it's a secret addative for extra performance

Pyramid and I using a Camois(is it right?) to rub the tire between heat.
Camois is the one that we use on our car.

Kill them... Kill them all ! Take them down like flies ! muahahah

Hey, I think you better make friends with them. Your age is catching up and you'll never know when you need to resort to 1/5th scale lawnmowers in the coming years... Think slightly ahead.
