InitalD,

Thanks for answering my post. Was just wondering if teflon oil will be good susbtitute for the Serpent one way lube. And for the Graphite grease, I have a tube Silicone Lube which is thick used for guns. What do you think?

I cannot comment on it. It may or may not be a good substitute as I do not have experience on it.

The graphite grease that we refer to is DRY and powdered type. Just like talcum powder. The reason why we want it dry it because it will not attract dirt like conventional grease. I think the silicone lube you refer to is dry or wet type?

Looking forward to your reply.


Thanks,

Titan
Do not use substitutes unless the lube is meant for one-ways.

As D mentioned, get the Serpent one-way lube. You'll have trouble-free operation and when you do maintenance on your one-way, you'll need it again.

It looks like this is what is coming for the 710;

...a new servo saver for improved Ackerman, a harder rear anti-roll bar (2.5 and 3mm) and new and better diff-adjusting-clamps.

Actually the 2.5 and 3mm rear ARB are already out. (802337) The new rear ARB mounts are included but also sold seperately (802338). I believe there is NO new rear mount for the stock 2mm ARB.

Ooohhh... getting SO close to 500 pages....

Hi all, sorry haven't been around much lately. It's been a busy summer with racing, work, club activities, homelife, etc etc.

In case anyone is interested, there are two new articles about assembling and setting up the different versions of the Centax clutches. These articles explain the differences between the various versions of the clutches, where exactly to use the different shims, and step-by-step instructions on how to assemble and set them up.

Centax-1: http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=10532
Centax-2 & Centax-3: http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=10534


There are also two other good article about Centax clutches:

Centax Clutch Adjustment: http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=9829

Building the Perfect Centax-3 Clutch: http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=10063

Mount the steering linkage ball UNDER the servo saver as per the manual (step 6.8, page 23). That should solve your problem.
