Glad it is fixed. Did you check if the Ferrari body would fit? It's kinda low and the shock towers or the engine heatsink may need to come out of the shell... Just a thought.

With the red springs on the rear are you running the new rear roll bar or the standard and how far in is it set?

I use the old stock one (2 mm). I set it about 12 mm from the end but the sway bar is mounted on the inner side of the lower rear arm (not outer as what the manual suggest).

Got to go kick some ass (or get my ass kicked) this morning.

Trinity 40WT is the equivalent of which Serpent oil?
I never used serpent oil, the only reasons is because I do not have a full line and customer prefer either trinity or associated. With red springs, I always use at least 70w TRI. Those Red+40s TRI is only suggestion to test the car just to see what I called fast response and hard to drive. Explanning is never been easy, its not like centimeter fixed measurement and the audiences are all unique

As a guideline, what oil do you use for which springs?

The kit comes with 30 - Yellow.
I ussually use the following (based on trinity oil) White/Yellow 50W-60W, Red 60W-80W. At the moment, I like White 60W either both on technical or big flowing track. PS: With the way I build the shock as stated in the b-book.

The 710 kit comes with 30w oil. I heard a while back that the weight is different from other brands. Serpent 30w is the same as Trinity 70w? BTW what Serpent shock oil weight would yo recommend on a high bite smooth track?

It may well be that some people still mix up the roll center position with the bulkhead position.

Front bulkhead low => rollcenter high. Slightly less grip but faster response.
Front bulkhead high => Rollcenter low. Less response more grip on throttle.
