InitialD,
YES, that is WAR PARTY'S Ti 2speed shaft....

When cutting the yellow shoe into three pieces make sure that you have a gap between the shoes when they are placed inside the flywheel.

Also my measurement on the modify centax clutch is 9.5mm!!

Unhappy

Hey Punisher,

I can't belive , with all the improvements that you have already in your car and you haven't hit the road to see how it performs or you have a veredict for all of that, last sunday a run for my very first time my 705 in the track with all the crowd, and belive me this car doesn't need all of that , is good to have it ,, but this car is awsome at the end of the day with 120 racers , i saw the results and only 5 racers were doing 16's sec. laps, 2 impulses , 2 yok's and my 705, i use to run 17 or 18 sec. a lap but last sunday i was very very satisfied with the performance of the car , By the way Punisher nice ride you have there i like the aluminun screws in it, can you post a full pic of your car?

Ciao!

The exclussive importer for the United States is Paris Racing and they do stock these tires. Have your local shop contact Paris Racing and they will fix you up.

On a side note there is a lot of bad information being tossed around on this forum on clutch set-ups I suggest anyone who wants the correct and most up to date information look at the Serpent web site for there information. Peer to peer support is good but bad information makes for a long race day.

I agree!!
The 705 out of the box Rocks!!
I just put the bling bling or eye candy factor on the car for some purpose.
However, some of the hop-ups are a benefited for the car!! Like the alum. 16t pulley for the front belt that seems to get torn up with the plastic pulley. With the alum. pulley I have seen less strip front belts, go finger. Also the lightweight hollow mid shaft and Ti 2speed shaft has less rotation mass to the car. Have you felt the weight of those stock shafts!?!?!?!
Anyway my car is ROAR legal weight (60oz) with these little goodies on. So I don’t see anything to wrong about having a little eye candy!!


Pictures are from Nizze…Thanks!!
