I may be wrong but I did read somewhere (magazine perhaps) that the Team guys were using prototype CVDs at the Winternats... Perhaps what was on the DVD were indeed CVDs. I'll check it out tonight.
When the camera shows the front view - you can see hudy steel metal.
I must say the video is really excellent - has he done one for those lovely lawnmowers yet?

Thought that was what it was. As I have the drive shafts from my 705 - wide track edition - I've added them to the 710, to see what they bring Hopefully I can get to the track tomorrow - weather and foot being ok - just rebuilding and re-greasing at the mo'

CVDs could also be made of Hudy spring steel as in the XRay. Anyway, Will check it out.

Yes, I believe it's called 2002 Large Scale Australian Championships.



Just let him know you're old and you'll probably get a good discount. You could also buy Uncle Sow a copy while you're at it.

I thought the one you emailed me said "draft" on it or something. Is this the final version now?

Hey, I'm already "experienced" with lawnmowers. You on the other hand is "Initially LawnMower" so you'll need the video to see how its done. You'll need all the help you can get!

Congratulations guys!

The Serpent 710 thread has made a pass on the MTX-3 thread and is now the fas.. errr biggest thread!


Good to see Serpent has those new parts out. I have the yellow clutch shoe, ceramic diff balls, alu middle shaft mount and alu radioplate support on my wishlist. Set-up wheels? I actually like the 3Racing ones better and I already have those.

24 Euro, which is probably less than what you will pay for Serpent set-up wheels. Also available in blue.

Uncle Sow, the bumper set cost around USD 5.00 and the shipping charge is almost 7 times of it.
A lot cheaper if you go home first..
Hey.. all the "big" team is going home already, why dont you ?

This is my reply to KO and some answer about it :

Dear Mr. Morris,

Thank you for your prompt reply.
Far as I know, there is no racer that using a switch in their “gas” car. I could be wrong.
Anyway, is all of the KO servo acts like that ?

This is the answer:

Arifin,
Typically, no. If you turn on the receiver first, the car will go crazy without a signal from the Tx. This is true for our systems and I don't anything about other manufacture's systems.
Almost every racer has an on/off switch in their gas car, just so they do not have to open the receiver box and plug in the battery to turn on their car. It is easier to have a switch of some type. All of our pro-drivers use switches.

Sincerely,
Robert Morris

Maybe I should invite him to this forum.
