Yes. The alloy one is too soft. The setscrew wears a track right around the end of the axle and then just wears it completely down to a cone shape as it moves outwards in the corners. There is a way to delay this. If you look at the bottom of the setscrew you will notice that it is concave in shape. Grind the bottom to a flat shape. This will give a better grip on the axle and stop the setscrew from digging into the axle which starts the problem.
Yup, that is correct. Thanks for the tip What people do here is to pre drill a notch on the axle. Same idea, just different way of execution

Then again, after some time, the problem will come back again. I thought there was a tip at one of the mytsn forums which is they insert a steel rod through the solid spool.

Then again, you can always cook up something in the workshop with a stronger material and a CAD station right?

Anyway, nice 5th body post on the 705. I always wanted to do one on mine.

Carbon graphite enclosure on the whole in front of the bumper? For dust / pebble protection? What about the bottom side?

The switch / plug of the servo extension is pretty dangerous. Use a double sided tape and mount the black plug onto the side of the throttle servo. Heheh, then it would block the snake decal on the side of the throttle servo

What else did you put in the car? I don't see the 17T, 22T and the 47T pulleys installed...

The Impact seems to have the normal touring car body post. Shouldn't the Impact use the GTP rear body mounts when the Lola body is used? It gives better handling to the Impact.

Just a guess and something to note... I have a feeling the 705 will have lots of off power steering. The caster angle is too little.

if you look closely the plug has a valcro (spelling?) on it. so once i plug it in, i can just mount it between top side of receiver under the deck.
pulleys.. ehhh.. i wanted to try bone stock first. as the track that i'm going to be running it on is pretty big.. but we'll see.
so 17,22, 47 are what i need?

impact mount.. lol. it used to have floating body mount.. until i took it off. i'm saving it for my 705 as i'm selling the impact. hehe

Neat Heheh, next time take pictures using a Nikon D1 digital SLR camera Mark will agree with this

Genius At the same time, you could swipe of the front body post on the Impact. They seem to be sturdier

yeah i've seen ppl running impact front body post. but you have to cut them in half and shorten them to use it.
there weren't that much stuff that i could keep.
btw. that graphite thingy was from my old impulse. i had all holes cover on my front bumper (top) because that thing kept breaking.
don't know where other 3 went. so i'm just left with the middle one. what's the use? mostly for looks.. lol
and come to think of it, i think it will actuall hold pebbles in there if it were to come in from the bottom side of the chassis. but oh well.

cast angle? right now i have all 3 clips behind. like what the manual says. too little you say? honestly i haven't played with caster much so it would be nice if you can shed some light on it. heh.

All 3 clips behind the arm will make the caster angle small. This will make for a lot of off power steering. Very little on power steering. With small caster angle, you need to run a lot of front camber because during corner, the wheels experience very small camber change unlike when the caster angle is large (all clips to the front). With a large caster angle, you get little off power steering into the corner and a lot of on power steering out of the corner.

I know that this is what is suggested in the manual but I personally think that this is too agressive. Test it out. You may like what you have set or may end up somewhere in between. If your car is far too twitchy for your liking, then you will know that the caster is one of the problems to tackle first before touching something else
