i really like the new steering blocks, i've only tried the 0 versions.
The car becomes more predictable steering into a corner, it's easier to hit the apex.
They really work great in the fast flowing corners.

I'm also running the new xceed tyres for a week now.
These are also great, amazing grip. The car was really rolling and twisting from all the traction the tyres gave, stiffened up the anti roll bars and the car was just amazing. Also the car is more direct on steering, and i think the tyres/rims are lighter then the grp type.

I had a race today and drove my fastest laptime so far and had my best qualifing result. I was on TQ but in the race i was rammed of the track while overtaking in the second lap

Serpent/Maxy's Fuel wins 3rd round of summer series race at Fort Myers. This time is was Luke W. that took the win. It is the third Serpent/Maxy's Fuel win this series. The first was Gianni, the second was Maxy and now Luke. Good job Luke. Nice consistent run. You did not let the pressure get to you and you made no mistakes. Congrats again!!! In 2 weeks is the last race and lets see if SerpentMaxy's Fuel can do it again.

That's awesome. I wouldn't be surprised if Serpent took the last one as well.

i live 15 km from the serpent factory, so my lhs has everything very fast.
It's the only shop who have's these tyres. But from what i know there availible in 1 or 2 weeks, then serpent has the new batch from japen.
The first batch was only for team drivers and my local lhs got some tyres.
They are were only avaible in 38 fronts and 40 rears. Don't know if the new batch has all the different shores.

hey guys, just wondering how compatible are parts from a 710 to the 720?

I have the option to buy a second hand 710 which has heaps of brand new in packet parts for it.

i have a 720 already, so do they use alot of common parts, or are most of the 710 parts exclusive to the 710 only. Does it share parts with the 950/960?

i know with mugen, the mtx-4 and mrx range use alot of common parts.

thanks.
