The site below sells the tools u need to assemble your 705.

http://64.70.208.72/speedtechrc/75.html


Alll you need is the following metric size:

1.5mm Hex Allen Wrench *
2.0mm Hex Allen Wrench *
2.5mm Hex Allen Wrench *
3.0mm Hex Allen Wrench
5.0mm Hex Allen Wrench
7.0mm Hex Socket Wrench

* denote (Get another ball Hex Allen Wrench if you can afford) for those hard to reach places.

I would also recommend getting that Hudy GLOWPLUG / CLUTCHNUT Wrench. It include wrench for your CLutch Nut, Glow Plug and the 5mm for your Adjustable pivot ball Nut.

I've lowered my bodywork down a couple of millimeters in the hope that I'll get more "ground-effect" downforce - does this work in practice, or does this effect not scale well onto RC cars.

Cheers, Mark.
I think it works the same as 1:1 scale cars.

Like modellor mentioned, I believe there is a 6 or 7 part articles about bodyshell aerodynamics by Bruno Heremans. Just look it up at mytsn.

For what it's worth, the Serpent receiver pack is 730 mAH. They sell loose 750 mAH AAA with the shink wrap and wires but you need to solder them yourself.

Yes, I've noticed that on my 705 with 2 Futaba S9451 digital servos, I use up slightly less than 100 mAH per 5 minute heat. I think in your case, you end up using about 600 mAH which a 750 or 800 mAH pack should do it.

I've read that hardcore racers who use 150 mAH packs that are very light just for the 5 minute heats...

www.RDLogics.com
Agreed. The NovaMega price is nearly double that the RD Logics. But I think they are a little soft. How are you finding the contruction?

So you're saying that perfromance wise the .15 and .12 RDLogic pipes are no different than the 2690?

Or you don't have to put grease in there, like some will advice you or like some of the Driver i know. But then again, its all in the matter of preference.
Yes, it is a matter of preference. But I would think that if something is constantly rubbing against a metal plate, I think some kind of lubrication should be applied.

Anyway, the reason why graphite grease is recommended is because they do not attract dust. Also, not all greases are made equal. Some fly out very easily but some when applied, stick like glue This is good because you do not have to apply grease time and again. I believe Ronnie grease is a sticky type.

You can use Mugen grease or the black AE grease. They are good also for the Centax thrust bearings.
