I've not studied the rules yet, as I won't be racing until the end of the season - what to get more practice in before getting on the circuit.
Which rules are you running to?
We run to both BRCA and EFRA depending on the championship.

Does the 705 include a pipe and/or header?

No. You have to purchase both these items separately. It doesnt even come with a shell. But thats the price you pay to have a real race car

Since it is basically the same as the impulse, I am looking forward to it. I had a lot of positive results with my impulse. I was recently in a REAL car accident where my impulse was one of many things destroyed, so a 705 will be its replacement. I think that I am going to try the RD LOGICS pipe set.

but i know that i should use a glow plug wrench to hold the pilot shaft but wont the crank eventually start turning once someforce is applied?? or to i only turn it until the crank turns over cuz the new engine will be very tight.... and for batteries... should i just get the pack that serpent makes?? cuz ill for sure screw it up if i make one my self.. and wats a radio hand set.... is that just another word for ur controller or wat??

No. The flywheel is mounted on a locking collar (the brass collar which has a split along it. If you hold the flywheel with a pair of grips and start tightening the shaftnut the flywheel will compress the collar and lock the flywheel tightly onto the shaft to prevent it from spinning.

No. It cant. The shaft would only start to turn once the flywheel would compress the collar and lock it onto the shaft. But since you are holding the flywheel with a set of grips you are actually not allowing the flywheel or shaft to turn in the same direction as the nut.

Never. I believe that constant use of a piston locking tool can damage the piston and conrod.

Hey guys, I was just around running my 705 around my driveway and I didn't go more than half throttle. Well I came back in the house, inspected the car, and there was this mysterious oil liquid type stuff on the bottom of my chassis. I have no idea what it was, I can't identify it and it doesn't look like any oils i've used before. I wasn't driving hard at all or anything, i'm also running 30% fuel if that has anything to do with it. Does anyone have any idea what this oil is?

Also, my receiver battery dies after like 20-30 minutes of driving, even if I fully charge it right before I go out. I'm charging it at 3.5 amps if that helps. Any ideas?

Anyways, here are pictures of the mystery oil:
