The blade types are said to be too strong for 1:10th, and if the wire types work for the team drivers, then they work for me, too

I agree with Mark. Especially the 710. To be honest, I don't even think you need the stock ones for most tracks.

As you can see you can get most of this part from R/C Mushroom with a very good price


Serpent Bracket Tank - Mounting For 710
$10.00USD
Serpent Bracket Middle Shaft Alu For 710
$21.00USD
Serpent Pivot Inserts LW MID-POS (8) For 710
$4.00USD
Serpent Front shaft lock-set for 710
$5.00USD
Serpent Anti-Roll Bar Levers Alu Orange
$26.00USD
Serpent Shock Housing Alu. PTFE Coated Front (2)For 710 & 950R
$13.00USD
Serpent Shock Housing Alu. PTFE Coated Rear (2) For 710

Ah OK. Plus you're probably running on a generally high-speed track and can't last 5 minutes right?

I copied my settings with another 710 at the track and notice my car leans more than his on the turns and not as planted as his. My lap time is about 1 second slower than his What could be the problem? The only thing I didnt ask him was what oil and shock holes he used. I was thinking maybe it could be the downstops as well. Any help would be appreciated.

Cyba, this means you did not copy the other set-up exactly.

Anyway, I think lean is generated from a few things in a car's set-up:
downstops, roll-bar, roll-center, ride height, tyre size.

Try to check what the other car has with these.

Default Clutch.... help...

I got some strange problem on clutch today.

I was using black shoe and yellow spring (I think it's stock, is it?). The stop-accelration is ok, good punch. But once its in speed, re-accelration is extrememly bad. I tried loose the spring, no work. Than I tried a brain new black shoe, a little better, but overall still no good.

The clutch gap doesn't seem effect the problem at all. While I losing the spring, the gap become smaller (is this correct??? Im kind confused), but doesn't change the strange behavior.

I guess I might need to try a new flyweight?

I did copy everything to roll centers and sway bar stiffness. I dont think its my ride height cause I use 4mm and it doesnt rub much on the bottom. Im guessing it could be the droop which would make the car lift more on the turns.

What time did you leave Silverstone today, I stopped by on the way back from Danshui around 5 but I guess you left already. I saw a guy with a cap on but it was a Oakley cap and he had a MTX-3 with yellow body
