We had this Sunday a Race in our Club and their where two SERPENT 710 raising one in the Novice group (rcpanama) an one on the Experts.

The two cars had the new Servo Saver install, my car had the Servo Saver, the 2.5 rear Sway Bar & the new Allegy Tires.

I can say that my experience with the new servo saver was excellent and a new tire was excellent.

The expert driver had TQ and first position, he broke the track record (Small & technical) he made 60 turns in 15 minutes main, he had very little Options install in his car:

Yellow shoes, hard spring in the centax
Red shock springs front & rear
Alu shock bodies with soft membranes & insert
New Servo Saver with front Ball Diff (new ring)

All the rest is standard

Set Up RC front 0 under, RC rear UTI, LT

There is nothing secret about it (maybe a little)

And no use telling you, we have told you to take a sicky and get serious. Be at the track at 9 tomorrow morning

Unfortunately my driver needs an education - apart from the one he gets from you, that is.

But brace yourself, I have a "To Do List" before the next night meet.

well...wear issue is totally minimal....i went through 3 heats and the 45 min. main with the same tires....only the rear tires were having the most wear....but still half of the rear tires still left.

for the fr tires i would say 2mm wear...

i do not know how to describe the traction....but my setup was almost perfect no rear tailing out or over steering...just nice with my driving...

that sounds good how long are your heats.

Was that 2mm on the fronts for the whole day?

The outer spur should spin freely counter clockwise - it has a one way bearing in it.
