I can't but the three port still puts me off a bit unless I decide to enter the rubber races. But painful memories of collecting boxes of inserts, wheels and tyres just wore me down.

D, it depends on the track. If you have decent grip and there's a flat sweeper or two then I'd definitely be using it. Helps with max power through a flat sweeper without the worry of traction rolling.

The only way to make it re-engage is keep click on thrttole until lucky happen.

Nope, 2nd speed didn't kick in.

Really a strange problem. It feels like the spring push the shoe back in high RPM, makes it dis-engage even the RPM still remain the same high.
I was about to say the same thing as D mentioned. Check your 1-way or the rear-diff. Most likely your rear diff is slipping.

Hi I will like to get some advice in reference to my Set Up. I has been raising in a large Parking loot Track with the 710, the set up I have works very good in that Track (med low traction) , I will show the set up.

We will start as of Sunday running in an other Track which is smaller (High Traction), one Fast Sweeper coming in the straight one slow one coming out, four hair pings and one chicane.

This track is very small compare to the other, we change track during our 14 raising in the year, depending on the sponsor.

The Set Up I have is the following:

Engine Nova Rossi NSR12 S3, with two ceramic Boca Bearing, Nova Mega crankshaft 11.5 Outlaw MS for Novarossi, yellow shoes, with 1.8 spring.
Fuel 20% Nitro 12% oil with Nitro Blast Additive.
Glowplug C6TF Novarossi
Pipe Nova Mega 5P out low

Tires Ellegi 40 front & rear


Shocks Red front & rear, 35 / 3 holes front, 40 / 3 holes rear
Shock Mounting front 2 & rear 1 (Default)

Transmition Spur 61 / 57 Pinion 16 / 21

Drive Train Rear Ball Diff Med hard / Front One way

Roll Center Rear UTI / LT Front 0mm under

Down Stop Front 0mm Rear 7mm

Camber Front 1.5 Left & Right Rear 3.0 Left & Right

Toe Front 1 out rear 2 in

Caster 2mm front

Ride Height Front 6mm Rear 7mm

Body Alpha Prot.

Car Weight without Body & Fuel (includes transponder & temperature gauge) 1665g
With Body 1785g


Bearing Complete Boca Bearings set and Ceramic bearing in rear Ball Diff.

The car has the three latest Aluminum option from Serpent, Hudy Dog Bones front & Rear, Hudy Drive shafts front & Rear, Ventilated Disk Brake, Hudy drive shaft in One-way.

What will be a good change from this Set Up to move to a smaller track (more technical & higher traction?

Thanks

Yeah, that was what I was thinking as well. Anyway, I think you should not use any type of brake cleaner. The ones I've seen are very caustic on plastics. Using the wrong one could melt and deform the plastic cage where the oneway bearing needles roll.

Paying more than double for JP FX when you can just buy an ordinary 5 port engine for the same performance? Does not make any sense.

JP website mentioned that the engine with the new 3 port sleeve (IDM style type porting) is about the same performance of their 5 port engines.

Ah, with a JP FX 3 port, why should you need to be relegated to join the rubber tire class? I'm sure the 3 port kicks in every bit of butt in the outlaw 5 port engine class.

The real strange part is: if I lift the car and put throttle on (about 15% of throttle). I can see clutch engage and than slip away after a while (under the same RPM) That why I say it feels like spring push the shoe back in.

Anyway, I gonna try the rebuilded clutch first this weekend, than new spring, than new flyweight, than.... I don't know...
