extracted from the setup manual:

centers. In general, a higher roll center on one end of the car creates more weight transfer at that end. The amount that a chassis rolls depends on the position of the roll axis relative to the carís center-of-gravity (CG). A lower roll center generally creates more grip due to the reduction in weight transfer.

Is is correct? weight transfer isn't consequence of the chassi roll?
The manual says that less chassi roll created more weight transfer....

So these are EVEN BETTER than the Race Brakepad set, which are better than the stock brakepads...right?

Don't think they are better.
Guess they will be between the stock pads and the race pads.
The race pads are pretty expensive.

And the steel 2 speed shaft is still steel so don't think it's much lighter, if you want a light one you better go for titanium or alu.

Why doesn't serpent make titanium parts actually, a lot of other companies do?.

Serpent does make most of the lighter items, just not the 2 speed shaft. I think they will one day, it is just that the quality of the alu or titanium must be really good, since the 2 speed shaft is longer. If you notice. A lot of people have issues with other brands of the 2 speed shaft that are titanium. Most people I know have to work to get the pin in the titanium shaft to work with the 2 speed or it even bends. This is all relative to the 710/720 not the other brands. Just my 2 cents

That is true. It has to be a very good titanium for the two-speed shaft because of the tendency of the two-speed bearing eating it up. Now once it got a little groove from the one-way bearing, it will be a headache. I wouldn't get a titanium shaft somewhere unless it comes from Serpent in the future.

Anyways, the spring steel shaft should be really good as the material is even stronger than the stock steel. I know I'll get one as soon as it hits the U.S.

The one way bearing of the 2 speed does not ride on the 2 speed shaft, it actually rides on the 2 speed adapter (Part #902412) so I don't think there is an issue on the one way bearing, only maybe it could bent permanently if it gets hit hard

You know what, I don't know what I was thinking when I commented about the 2-speed one-way. I guess 8 hours of sleep over 2 days is no good . But you are right, the 720 got a 2-speed adapter where the one-way rides on. Thanks Sam, you are my hero .

But I'm still getting the spring steel shaft when it comes out .
