oh and he has mugen now.

now. anyone here know if front impact belt will fit on 705?
and rear knuckle arm?
Good choice

The impact wide front belt will fit the 705, Part number 808361, infact it will be better with the wide one as it last longer then the stock, same goes to rear knuckle arm part number 808311 that work on the 705.

Second is 4.2, im now assuming that I put the shaft in backwards as the notch at the end is on the wrong end (2 speed side instead of the side pully side) Thanks for your help. Sorry if this has been asked before, it's hard to go through 60 pages of posts.
For step 4.1, i think i have the pin flush with the other end, I can't remember since i don't hold the car now. But whatever it is, u need to check that with the dishbrake braket (part 801342), place it on top and make sure the pins protrude out atleast about 2mm from the separator below it. Part 801342 separator is where to hold the brake-cam in place.
I don't understand your 2nd question.

Devin - To answer your second question you have to slide the caliper rod from below the chassis so that the e-clip is visible on the underside of the chassis when you turn the car upside down. But as for way it is located. Just make sure the flat side is facing towards the brake disk.

Shock towers


Do you get better performance w/ shock towers or w/ out shock towers.

I get more stability and better performance just running the car straight to the ball cups.

Any feedback?

The 2 pins should be flushed towards the bottom of the chassis. The E clip should also stay flush at the bottom of the chassis.

When braking occurs, the brake cam (situated nearer towards the 2 speed gearbox) will squeeze and press the brake plates together which is supported on the other side by the notch / bridge on the disk brake bracket at the top and by the 2 rolling pins at the bottom of the chassis. The brake cam, the 2 rolling pins and the notch on the brake plate is what keeps the brake disc (which is in between the brake pads) in position.

Actually, there is no other option for the rear knuckles on the 705. The 808311 is the part number for it

Yes, I find that the shocks in the original Streetspec position (on the bearing blocks) give better handling results.

For the front, it gives better mid steering corners and side bite even without the FC steering blocks. In the rear, more traction is obtained. The feedbacks from the team drivers have been positive. If you look at their test setups, you'll notice that they are not using the shock towers. Try it out and see if you like it.

Ok, I almost forgot to post this. It's obvious which is the new chassis

I never used my shock tower since day 1 of my 705. Well, off course I have to try it and test @ least once. My car where just not gripping enough with shock towers on.

I have it, and racers were asking me where are the shock towers. I just do not want to use it. I drive and my car is better without it.

So...the car will have more grip with out shock tower?? I was never thought of that. My Impulse Pro slide all over the place last weekend (Like racing on ice) I can't seem to get the car to stay at all. I think I might have to try it this weekend club race.

705 is almost finish!! Since I used to built 2 Impulse, 2 Impact and a Veteq .( not to mention all others kit that I built in the past )...it's all the same to me!! LOL...

Any how.. all the front and rear and finish. But. the front suspension seem to be very tight in traveling up and down. But..I think after a few run...it will braking in quite nice.

Also..the Dogs bones (drive shft) seem to have alot of the slugage in it...so..I decided to cut some fuel tube and put it in the outdrive on both end. I also did the same in the rear.

After all this work...the car look almost like my Impulse pro. Except a few changes in the chassis and some other stuff...but..after all front and rear suspension is about the save. (I have ball diff and front salid diff in my pro)

Can't wait to drive it!!
