You forgot the RR Evo, RR Jap Cup Version FW05R, FW05RR, RRR EVO and the Evolva 2006 WC.

According from Mytsn, 710 was released on 11-14-2003....so, it is like 2.5 years without new facelift like Impulse to 705, or even new car...
I can only remember NTC3 was the last car that has the longest "no major change" so far...

So the chances of having a 710R 712.8 783.234 777.7778 sometime this year is very very high. (simply a wild guess..)

Yeah... without considering they redid the front differential, new shocks and other "inventions" must be made to ensure somewhat its durability.

and performance... In lieu of incrimental updates, Serpent just chose to offer upgrades to the existing car. Not much different than an "Evo" or "Prospec" update which they have been offering with their "Team" car. Basically the same car with all the upgrades included. They all do the same thing with just a slightly different marketing style.

New car with what calling not the important, but the outlook & construction will very close to 960, very long rear suspension arm without any DRS anymore, lay down deep degree rear damper shock with own carbon fiber tower, independent carbon fiber body mount tower also work for camber link, brake disc with carbon fiber fixing, front upper arm rolling center adjuster not using shim, named 720......I hope like this

I think we have to wait till end of the season, it's not a good idea too release a car mid-season. Not many people are going to switch cars mid season.
I also think the chances are very slim we will see the 720 at the euro's on Mach.

They just finished the Formule 1 project and are busy preparing the launch for that car, if that goes succesfull, then the dev. of the 720 really starts.
Also i haven't seen or heard anything about someone seeing the new car, which i hear pretty quickley because i race on the Mach(Serpent) track.

I also don't believe Serpent will release the new 1/10th scale sedan in the middle of the reason. If they do, what's the point releasing new optional part for the 710 like the new front gear diff.

You have very interesting information.
I would add strong emphasis in chassis rigidity, same centax and 2sp, shorter internal relation.

I would not pay attention to the introduction of new parts for the 710 as a reason to say that a new car is not coming. Before the 710, Serpent introduced new parts for the 705 that later were part of the 710, like the FC steering blocks. So, maybe they are just introducing parts that will fit both cars, so current 710 owners can that advantage of them.

Also, new car introduction in the middle of the season is not new for Serpent. Last year the 960 and three years ago the 950R were introduced in the middle of the season. I am not saying that it is a good idea, but they have done that before.

Finally, the 710 is a little bit old and Mugen and Kyosho have introduced new cars. Even though the improved 710 (new chassis, RCCs, gear diffs, chassis rigidity oriented parts as well as some non public mods) is a very competitive car, as it was proven in the 2005 Euros, 2005 GLC, 2005 US Nationals, 2006 Winternats, it is far and away from the out of the box car. I think Serpent definitely needs a new challenger for the Worlds in Australia.

Lets wait and see..

You sure about that? I cant find anything about the 715 in the www.mytsn.com. Do you have a web link? I have heard from very reliable sources the name "720" and never "715". (Kinda overheard, maybe I was eavesdropping ) Maybe they changed it, who knows.

The rtr is just 710 rtr, not 720.
And the 960 wasnt't released mid season, it was end of august, which is a bit to the end of the season, at least overhere it is.
