But the serpent 733 has the same design only the shocks are on the inner side. So what was the problem with the 710??

Indeed ... 733 as well as the NT1 also, so all designers have it wrong?

wrong terms opps
but all the plastic are done by sla right?

hopefully car comes with batteries. we can't find one from market now fits on the car. may be because it is pre-prod ...
Seeing the real car I see more to offer than pictures I ve seem, like the flex top deck and the easy access to the diff.

The rear shock location may be a problem. I experienced back with 710, been the first part to be hit from the back, it will most likely be the first part to be replaced. Been hit on the back happened just too often here and would be too late during qualify or final.
The NT1 is little different. you got the wheels on the bottom, on top you are behind the rear shock mount... just may be they will help..

but hey, this car still must be in my tool box. too good to miss

Hello Everyone!! I'm here in Lostallo now but before we headed down the road we stopped at the Shepherd shop and had a look around. Among the cool stuff we checked out was some of the production sample parts for the V10!! The differentials look awesome, the production aluminum parts are blue and everything looks really nice. I am super excited that I get to return home to the US with a car after the Pre-WC. I can not wait for the GLC and especially ROAR Nationals with the car. I am sure everyone will be quite happy!!

As kitracer already said...
Serpent made it a 2 piece system on the 720, and went to the same idea with there 733 as Xray has with the NT1. The Velox V10 is the same idea as the Serpent 710 had, it's a small difference, but it's there...

It's true the fibre carbon is thicker, lets just hope it is enough...
