Default Switch to 710

Thanks for all the info. Look like the 710 is a very durable car.
Well, I'm from Sabah, MY.
I've been running NTC3 for a year and feel that the running cost is quite high, some key component parts like wheel bearing, diff gear and pinnion, flywheel, CVD ect is not durable. But I have to said it is very easy to handle.

Are they available with different heads? (socket, button, flat)
Do they have M4 too?
If the answer to all above questions is yes:
Where do I get those?

I have specific requirements. I don't need a set thats 90% or even 100% the same as for the 710 since I use a lot of aluminum screws too.

Default Track width

Hi guys I have been looking for an explanation of Track Width i would just like to know how this works? For example I recently ran a smaller track width at the rear which seems to give me less steering, why is this?
Thanks for your help

I don't think they've got the hang of this on-line thing yet ... besides you're probably a good "live" customer.

Thanks for your help
Think of it as your stance. With your feet together you're pretty wobbly, easily push to one side or another, in other words your weight shifts easier. On the contrary, if you spread your stance you are more stable in terms of side to side weight shift ... a lot harder for someone to push you to one side or the other.

Similarly, if your trackwidth is narrow, the weight of the car can shift more/easier from side to side. Conversely for wider track width.

Within limits and depending on your overall set-up ... narrower trackwidth in the front gives a little more steering because the when you initiate a corner you're starting to force the weight of the car to shift from side to side.
