Yep me too posted the link to mytsn also. It's nice to see that Serpent is trying to do something for the engine prices and that a name as Picco is involved in it. A shame though that Alberto sold his car "speed" to a German company.

Hey Mark how's your FX running? Is it run in yet so you can drop it of at my place when going to England for the European tour

Hope to join you guys at that date. The MACH dates are clubraces as I said but the 3 hour race would also be fun though.

FX is screaming It is one "hot" motor!!! There was a radar speed trap setup on the circuit the otherday, a guy with an MRX-3 1/8th scale went through at 92kph and my 710 JP FX went through at 90kph!!!! That'll give you some idea of the speed

Holland is unfortunately not on the flight path from Nuremberg to England, but if you come over, you can pick it up then

The three hour is a possibility, the only problem being that my plans for that weekend are uncertain - my folks are coming to visit in Sept and they can't seem to make their minds up when they want to come Naturally I'm not asked what is convienient I'm just told when they are coming!

Was looking to buy a FX also but it's too pricey for me. Driving two classes isn't cheap you know

Was driving the 710 last weekend and could keep up with some 1/8th scale riders. Not the big guys but the normal ones you know. Had only one problem lots of midcorner off power oversteer. I'm now checking if my diff is to tight for the initial setting but can't get the screw out of it. Because it doesn't happened everytime. Maybe my steering was a bit too hard in mid corner.

Yep, I've got a Vector NT sitting here, but I decided that I wouldn't buy an engine for it, as it would make everything very expensive and I really like driving 1/10th.

I had off throttle turn in and mid corner understeer, but I found out that somehow I had accidently set my front track to 203mm I'm dying to try the car out again, but this rain is getting on my nerves!

Driving my 950r is fun but I must work hard but when "playing" with the 710 it's fun. It 's so easy and smooth that you'll enjoy every minute driving it. Hope I will drive my 950r the same when I got it set up good. Laptimes are allmost the same but the 950r is a bit faster though.

Hope the weather will get better but it doesn't look promising though

Are you driving with or without your front antirollbar?

Without - this was the first "correction" I made to my setup. I can't wait to see what affect the track width has had though - maybe tomorrow - if it doesn't rain anymore.

The weather forecast isn't that good for the weekend over here and I'll have to work also. Hope the weather will be better next week so I can try some different things with the 710. Will be going to stock set up and work from there. Seeting the reardiff less tight initialy will make a difference I think. Maybe try Julius's setup from the LRP race and see what the car does. Will also be driving a mazda 6 instead of a stratus 1.0.
