I would.

On this Centax clutch do you have to tear the pinion gears off to change the engagement, or is it externally adjustable?
Thanks

The RB X12 while being older than the latest RB V12 or Novarossi NS12 engines is still a decent engine no doubt.

The Centax 3 clutch on the 710 is externally adjustable. In fact ALL Centax clutches (regardless of brand) should be externally adjustable. Insert a 1.5 mm allen into the hole at the side of the clutchbell and "catch" the notch of the pre-tension adjusting nut. Once you lock it down, turn CCW to tighten the Centax spring pre-tension nut for later engine RPM clutch engagement or CW to loosen the Centax spring pre-tension nut for earlier engine RPM clutch engagement.

But I do agree that coatings on the crankshaft and crank pin is definitely a plus. KHM does that also I believe.
D is correct, the coating in the crank pin really help to improve the durability, particularly the 0.21 motor. The rb concept coating in those crank pin has significally improved the wear. I did compare to those stock nova engine crank pin and found after the three gallon gone through, the coated RB pins was still in good shape but the nova pin has weared more without the coating.

I am confused as to how you turn your electronics off when the 710 has no place to install the on and off switch how do you guys turn your electronics on and off do you put the battery connector on your receiver and then un plug it

Are you referring the coatings done on .12 RB engine or on the .21 engine? Did not know that RB does that on their .12 engines.
