Well, that is a very good record.

Are you in Panama? That would be quite close to Florida. Join us for the WinterNats next year!

anyone looking to buy a 710? I built a car and decided not to run it.

I have a post in the buy sell forum but I figured I would ask you guys here as well..

I am open to offers in the range of $350 or OBO. ( shipped)

Thanks.

Thumbs up Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Switch to 710

Did you read my post on this forum? I had try all the top car and end up keep 710 as the one I drive. it is definetely a good car if you really know how to build a RC.
My user name already tell you what driving skill I have
and 710 survive my violant abuse
NTC3 is a good car for so many years, but if you want to try belt drive system, only those who do not know RC will have trouble with it.

With the 61T spur and 16T pinion, you need to mesh it a little tighter to run it in. If you make the pinion and spur mesh smoothly, you'll end up stripping the spur.

Yes, it will be tighter than normal initially but after running it for a while when it's running a little bit smoother, relax slightly on the meshing so that the pinion and spur turns a little smoother. It should be ok.

Hi Alan, are you up north in MY? What CVDs are those? 3Racing? They snap pretty easily and their cost of replacement is not cheap either. If anything, wait for Serpent's replacement. I believe the factory drivers are using the prototypes currently.

Anyway like the others have mentioned, if you set the trackwidth correct and the steering end travel correct, you will not have problems with the dogbones.

What are you planning to use? Front ball diff, oneway or locked front axle? With the front ball diff, the car needs to be narrower like 197 mm in the front. You could put spacers like rcpanama has suggested but make sure that the front suspension does not bind and travels smoothly.

Julius also mentioned to put spacers in the wheel axle so that the dogbone does not sit in deep enough for the wheel axle to catch the dogbone and break it or dislodge it when you hit something at the same time your steering travel is at the max.

Cheers !

p/s: Don't set the diffs soft like the NTC3. Else, your diff will slip and you'll get a bad handling car. Refer to Julius' article on mytsn on how to build the diff correctly. You should not allow ANY slip on the rear diff or front diff and your car will track straight when you gas the throttle. BTW, the ball diffs on the 710 are much more rugged than that on the NTC3. Just build it correct on the first time (Mugen Super Grease).

2nd is Philip Lee from S'pore (FW-05) and 3rd Dhanu (G4)

The track is being resurfaced again with some emultion after having VHT 3 weeks ago so its become tackier ?
Especially in the some (shiny) spot. And if I noted there is no car that is not having tracktion rolled but it was a great track.
Do you know that Mr. Dhanu is using 35 shore all round for the 45 minutes final?

Actually, on 1st heat he is disq's because of the track width. I'm also very sensitive because the organisers are not telling him that his car is also already underweighted on the 1st heat.

I think that already goes to show the limit of a driver's potential. I'm pretty sure Pak Hendro has not gotten better times on the Mugen than what he got from the 710.

And I'm pretty sure going from what you say, if that teenager you're referring to drives the 710, he would have easily TQed.

In summary, what I'm trying to say is that on the top level, all cars are pretty much equal. Pros here, cons there. It's all the the driver's hands and capabilities.

Is that possible? Tire wear so low?
