Make sure you adjust the camber so the fronts wear evenly across their width.

That is a bit strange with the left front, though - are you using a locked front axle?
Fronts seem to be pretty even and iam running a oneway on the front not locked.

P.S what the new shock tower?
It helps to keep the wear even.

There is a new thicker rear shock tower availble, as some found the original one a little too weak in a crash Unfortunately you and I seem to have got a defective original rear shock tower which refuses to break

Well it can't be from braking, then - is the one-way working ok?i.e. both wheels spin ok in one direction and drive the drive train in the other. I would think it is ok, otherwise you'd have problems under acceleration.

Checked the drive train and everything seems to be ok after closer inspection i have noticed that the "bigger" tyre seems to be larger on the outside of the tyre than the inside by only 1mm or so

Whats the difference between 3 Racing Aluminum Chasis and Serpent Chassis 4MM for 710 ?

I'm about to order some parts from rc-mushrooms.

With 3racing's reputation on their aluminum parts and the Serpent chassis being less expensive at Mushroom, I would go for the original Serpent chassis every single time.

By the way, purple is passť.

It's just the arm on which the trackrods are mounted that's new (longer). The number is 802146 for just that one part. 802143 is the original set of all nylon parts in the servo saver.

You could get one from Holland but you will spend double the Mushroom price... Personally I would wait. I have some 3racing parts and the aluminum is really soft so it will probably flex more than the original one too. I don't see how this 3racing 'hop-up' is an improvement over the original.

I think when you hit "Notify me of updates to Serpent Chassis 4MM for 710" to the right of the product description, you will get an e-mail when it's back in stock.

Default Optional Servosaver Arm

So who has fitted this? Has anyone else found it causes the origional part of the assembly (the arm that the servo link attatches to) to hit the left hand bulkhead?

Oh, and if you havent seen it....

Aluminium Middle Shaft

I haven't but if Serpent can do better than K-factory and Kawahara ones for the other cars (MTX) then I'm all for it.

I suggest sticking with a Ti one.
