Thanks... I don't have any accurate scales... On my palm, the difference in the weight is very slight. I'm thinking less than 5 grams difference.

You actually do not need to insert the fuel tubing in the rear. You never will pop the rear dog bones out unless in a hard crash at the rear. The front ones do because of the way the steering blocks will move.

You actually need clearance in the rear when the rear suspension is working. Putting fuel tubing or any kind of spacer will bind the suspension movement. Just a thought.

It is a really bad idea to put anything in the outdrives to take up any space (especially fuel tubing). Those gaps are their for a purpose. When the suspenion compresses the gap actually reduces due to the camber angle. If you have the fule tubing filling the gap completely then when the suspension compresses it will make it feel harder than normal as the fuel tubing will also act like a really hard spring. This in itself might not be a problem but if the fuel tubing doesnt compress as quick as the spring and the 2 pieces are not identical length on both sides the car will be out of balance and not drive properly.

Where did u get that rear sway bar?? It seem to work nice!! A friend of my got it from HK and he say it was cheap there. What is the part # and about how much will it cost here??
Ordered it from the LHS. Part number is 909335. I actually did not use the blades that came with it. I got 2 separate male blades (909216) that you use for the 705 front adjustable sway bar. It's thinner and better according to mytsn.

Where is here? HK is always cheap when it concerns RC How much did your friend get it for?

When did the newer version of chassis for the 705 come out, just got my kit from a dealer 2 weeks ago and got the old version. Maybe the store had older stock of the 705s.

Kind of a kick myself now for not nowing about this and making sure the kit had the newer chassis before I got it.

Very, very nice shell!!!!

My shell is inspired from the Lotuses of the 1960s - it is very conservative, especially compared to your shell!!!!
