You have too much time. Because I know how much time it costs to do things like this. It looks nice.
You did not change the front track-wide?
So the car is rear very wide (like 248mm) and front very small (like 225mm).
How does the car perform against a S835?
Rene, Alistair is correct that some of the parts have been changed to convert it to a 235mm chassis but the main 710 design remains the same.
The car is 240 wide at the rear and 227 at the front. (I would normally run the 835 with approx 10-15mm diff)
It used VoneS drive shafts at the rear and the normal 835 up front.
Some spacers have been made for the axles and some of the arms modified but the 710 suspension design is still retained. The front axles are modified 835 rears and the throttle set-up is an adaption from the 950r.
The chassis, radio plate and side braces are custom made as the car is 10mm longer than the 710.
The car still feature all of the set-up variables that the 710 has though.
We have only run it once (with a sedan body and TQed) but already have achieved a time within .1 of a sec of the best that I did with the 835 in the same config.
It will be interesting but I would assume that it will be easily a better car than the out of date design that is the 835.
HINT,HINT it would be great if Serpent made one. You can send me one if they do.
BTW, THOMAS (aka venomworldorder) has asked me to write an article about the Mirage for RC Underground so once I get time you can check it out on his site.
