Is the rollcenter changable on the lower arms (front and rear)?

The internal gearing has changed.. what has changed regarding the pulleys and gears?
If the diffs are reusable, the difftheeth are the same, so that means the middle pulleys would have changed.. how and what changed there?

How is the rear stabi connected and are there different hardnesses?
Roll center is adjustable in the rear and front end. In the rear upper link, you have 2 posisition in the uprigth and 2 in the carbon mount. In the lower pin, you have 4 position. In the front end, the lower pin is fixed and the upper pin has 3 positions.

Side pulley on the 2 speed axle is 21 and rear pulley on the gear diff is 47.

Stabi is adjustable and mounted on the bulkead on ball bearings and connected to the rear lower arm by links. l So far this is the only one available.

Good luck Paolo. I wish I could make it to this event to add to the # of Serpents there but I'm sure everything will go well. See everyone at the GLC.

4 positions, yikes, that's a lot, good stuff!

That means the diff of the 710 won't be available as a 'spare' right?

The internals of the rear diff are identical. You'll need new plastic parts only.

It's difficult to explain the installation of the anti roll bar bearings without actually seeing it. But it's quite ingenious....

What's the total weight of the car with no radio gear?
With two diffs and race ready (incl body but smallish tires) my car weighs 1770 grams. So compared to the 710 the new car is lighter.

Wow, that's lighter than the 710. I had to put a bunch of allu screws in order to bring it to a decent level. Let's see how this car perform, if drives as good at looks, i am ready to sell my MTX4
