Im using the Taam Magic starter box with uses two 7.2v batteries. Its suppose to be the smallest starter box among others and its convenient because of its size.

I'm using the Serpent starter box.
I sometimes have trouble starting some of my engines when I use my cheap battery packs.
Some of the guys have suggested using a 12V.

It says it's 900mAh, but later it says it contains 5 730mAh AAA batteries.

seems like the mazda 6 body body is the best nowadays even for electric. i use it for my three electric cars and i'm trying to avoid it now just to avoid the monotony. anyway, if its the best even for nitro, then why change it it seems more durable too than the other bodies.

ZIZU: good move! sell your 710 and focus your energies into the car/s that you really like!

Im using the front diff on my car, Its working well on my local tight and twisty track. better brakes and corners like a train on rails

The only part i seem to be breaking often is the thrust bearing im lubeing it every 20 mins or so of racing but the car is using an alarming rate of them

Are you suppose to lube your bearings? I have changed mine a few times because it wasnt smooth and gritty which was from the wheel hubs, maybe due to an accident that might have damaged it. So far my 710 has been running good, 1 gallon tank and the only meaintenance I did was rebuild the rear diff. Other than that its still running fine.

Do you mean the thrust bearing in the diffs or the clutch?

Anyone using a Ko Propo Electric Switch for their 710, is there room for it? The only downside is that it drains the batteries even when not in use. What are your thoughts on getting one?

I just got information that some of the 710 alum. and the plastic parts are made by 3Racing and some company in China. That's why Serpent parts are very very cheap compare to the old days... Is this true?
