Why +silicon tube, because the shorter spring on brake wont be long enough to reach the end threat of that plastic end on brake linkage. I urge you to try it.. it will sure make your driving much faster.

PS: Lower front shore would definitely works to gain more front traction. I`m just having a really bad bad bad experience with it on our National championsip. Since between lower and higher shore rating would react differently in different temperature, that was disaster on the condition I was running on final (tarmac temp varies within 15deg C on and off in 45 minutes).
That ride is looking mighty good there pyramid.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the diff ball, use AE stealth grease or a similar grease for ball diffs (i personally use the IRS stuff in the syringe).

Thanks.. I would love to see Suruth drive his on upcoming Futaba Cup. Maybe could steal some `kungfu` he has. You should have joined (I think it`s already full by now).

Bro, we have mostly hot climate tracks here. A friend of ours drives with the best tire brand and found the traction to be inconsistant. I think he was using 37 or 35 shore. When he used another brand which was 40 shore for the final, he found that he could drive more easily with it.
I really doubt is the tires since on all 4 qualifying runs (1 was canceled due to the AMB operator stop the timing too early) I was able to be on the first position with average of 8 seconds lead (it was in our hometrack). Yes, on all 4 qualifying with 37 shore all around. On final (same day) but with 40R, the wheather become very cloudy and still having sunshine on and off. I could not even give a close competition.. That`s why now I would rather have same shore since tire wear between F/R is not an issue anymore with 46T rear diff pulley. Of course, this is just my prefferences. Goldfinger still likes to run softer fronts.

Whats that stuff you put on the end of your pipe? Its looks like some kind of cement thing, does it protect your pipe from bending inwards from side impacts?
It`s a metal dry epoxy (not liquid like most glue). A+B you joint together and apply to the area (must be sand first). Yes, it really on side impacts that would bent the pipe otherwise. In the US, I think you could find it in Home Depot.

Most high end digital servo are all good now and bigger capacity of battery (800mah) has becoming available. I run Futaba S9550 is just because they are smaller which would leave me more room to accomodate other things and not to mention the weight saving. S9550 (6kg tourqe, 0.1 sec) on both steering and throttle. Most of the pros even choose analog for throttle

Anyone use digital servos, how much battery does it drain more compared to standard servos? I would like to use it for my throttle(Futaba S9451)will it fit the 710? What are your thoughts on digital servos?

Here is a pic of the track that I race at, which pipe would you recommend for this track?
For that track, definetely go with NRS-56207. To same some refeuling time, you could also try the EFRA type NRS-56206. There will be modification needed to install shark on S710. You should asked Mr. Glen Cauly about it.

I thought no one was going to answer my question...Thanks The prices are pretty much similar so not sure which to get regarding servos. I am leaning towards digital since its a newer technology.

Those are nice gadgets. For me, I found my Mitutoyo 200mm digital caliper is the most usefull as it could also measure track width.

S9451 will fit just find. If S9550, you could mount it from bottom of upperdeck which will give you lower CG...
