Currency exchange rates does not favour us. But no doubt, Hawaii beaches are one of the most beautiful in the world.

The flange has a curved side and a flat side. The curved side is suppose to face the inner side of the pulley and belt. The pulley flanges on the one way are correct while the one on the solid axle is not as the way the pulley flange on the right side was mounted, the flat / sharp part faces toward the inner pulley. You will find your belts strip faster if they are installed incorrectly

Aha, I thought I remembered you mentioning to me that you've been there. Nothing to shout about though. It's a Casino / theme park but nothing like Las Vegas or Disneyland. One of the coldest place in Malaysia. 20 to 25 degree Celcius (68 to 77 F).

Ok, I'm rambling... Perhaps I should admit that the 70's show applies to me as well

Ah, that was the idea

Anyway, I saw your posting on mytsn. On the contrary, I measured and the one way unit from end to end is 42 mm. The front solid axle is 1 mm longer at 43 mm !! It must be the pro drive cups / diff adaptors that is making the whole assembly shorter.

I should have made myself a bit clearer on that point - it is indeed the completley assembled width I was talking about.

It's my age, you know - makes one forgetf.... ehm, what was I talking about

I checked the one way and the solid axle. The 24T pulley (808229) is the same one used on the solid axle and one way. So they cannot be different.

P/S: I just noticed that the pulley flange (right side) on the solid axle is installed wrongly

I have a Futaba servo, so there must be a slight difference in the position of the servo head on the sanwa. (pulley flange seems to be the right word to me )

It shouldn't be a problem to remove some material from the servo saver flange to allow it to fit - I take it that it would just be the tip of the servo saver flange which is causing the problem? Simply grind it down a small amount - not too much though!!

Ummm, the stock servo saver does not have any problems if you follow the 705 manual instructions of installing a Sanwa / Airtronics steering servo to the T.

Ummm, it looks like for your case if the problem of steering servo mounting can already be solved with the stock servo saver, going with a 1/8th scale servo saver would get your into problems It's like 2 rights will end up in a wrong.

In your case, you should use it still and remove some material on the servo saver like what Mark has suggested because it gives a better Ackerman steering.

Default Throttle hitting gas tank

Hi, I just finished assembling the 705. One thing I noticed, when I extend the throttle switch on the engine fully, the "opposite end" of the ball head hits the black triangular plate (that holds the gas tank). I use a RS12 5P. Anyone ran in this problem before? And how did you fix it?
Secondly, I had lotsa problem putting the mid belt onto the pullies... Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help.

I have that engine also. I didnt have any problems installing it in my 705. You can cure the problem by a couple of methods.

Firstly you can try turning you carb slightly so the ball does open over the tank mount.

Secondly, You could loosen the ball end and rotate it slightly so that it clears the carbon mount.

Interesting, InitialD...I never noticed that there was a difference in the sides of the pulley washers.
