I think the current rear RC that you have now is slightly lower than stock. Some tracks prefer a lot of camber change while others not. The shorter rear upper arm (UTO or UBO) gives more camber change upon suspension compression. The stock rear RC and the currect RC that you're having now is the long rear arm version which gives less camber change.

Like I mentioned earlier, the RC would depend a lot also on your overall setup. I would look into the other stuff first before playing with the rear RC. If the rear is loose, I would tighten the front sway bar some more. Make it more stiff. Less rear droop. More rear camber.
Yep tried all of those D, ven the shorter arm, track prefers the longer arm

I am fairly sure it is the clutch, but if I can get it to stick the car will be near perfect for me.

My problem is if i go back to the higher roll centre, I cant see it working any better? Hopefully I am wrong

You could try... I thought Pyramid mentioned before that the higher rear RC worked better in terms of rear traction.

If you're casually playing and racing at club level, I suggest going with the stock parts first and when you break them, then you could replace them with parts that are with stronger plastics which is a running change that Serpent is doing.
D, i rarely run my 710 but I found the pastic parts has been fatigued and there were some movement and not in place.

D, I am referring to the front upper and lower arms, the rear lower front arms also but not noticeable like the front arms.

Oh dear, where have you been my firend. Need to borrow the ring?

I've been saying this to NiMo for a while too and you can see it in his engine's performance. Not sure about Mark's because he has the old fangs. I better check mine this weekend, the guy at the Border promised that its got the new fangs.

If you see what I mean?
That's what I normally do but I find that if I'm following a couple of the faster guys, that's where I lose ground.
