Does anyone know where I can find or want to sel the purple aluminum brake-lever that goes on the optional aluminum brake braket? "Brake plate alu purple with ballbearing" I do not want to use the plastic brake lever I know some one made aluminum ones.

Do you know where I can find one or buy one off of someone?

Sorry, but I have not seen any coming from 3rd party option houses that is specifically for the 705... Perhaps you could get one from the other car and mod it yourself.

Default S-705 New life

After I got the S-710 I decided not to sell my 705. Over the winter I took it apart, cleaned and inspected every part and replaced a lot of em to create an outlaw monster. Now it's finally done and I have pics

With the body on:

Hey Kevin! Great pictures! Notice you haven't got the floating rear Impact mount that D was on about.

Look what I've found in my spares box

Looks nice KevinS!! Have you ever noticed with the S9550 steering servo and a gear dif on the front that the serpernt servo saver makes contact with the gear dif casing? I had to dremmel down my serpent servo saver a lot so it clears. I hope it holds now with less material around the balls.

Maybe I'll get the floating body mounts later. I havn't driven the car in this configuration yet, so maybe it turns out I need it afterall. Shame about the extra holes in the body if so...

Yeah I'm holding off painting my GTP shell until I get the floating rear mount for that very reason.

I'm probably going to order the 2106 for the 705 - I was so impressed with the engine in my 710, how easy it is to tune and its power....it'd be terrible to go back to the SX-RE now I could never tune that engine

This is really breathing new life into my 705

I have never tried a gear diff. Does it have a 24T pulley too? Since with the front one-way the servo saver stays at least 1mm clear of the pulley...

Kevin - the stock servo saver cleared the one-way and they're both 24 teeth, but the extra diameter of the gear dif case compared to the small diameter shaft of the one-way is the problem..

I compared the S9550 to my S9303 that I used to have for my steering servo and the S9550 splines for the servo saver is moved forward about 1 mm and thats what makes it contact the gear dif casing.
