I'm not so sure that the car will not see this....if one shock is loaded and the other is not ie. going around a corner, then the shock tower will see a similar twisting effect.

What you effectively end up with is the rear shocks are softer...but this softness is not entirely controlled by the springs.

In most cars...you would try to have the most rigid platform to mount the shocks so that all the suspension work is done by the suspension and not but the unpredictable gearbox flex.

Anyway, time will tell...if Serpent does not modify this area with options then we will all know it is part of the design.
The shocks force is in an up and down movement. They create a pull/push on the tower. Take the car and roll it sdeways like in a corner. You won't see a twist in the tower. That could happen if the tower itself would flex. That is why it is made as thick as it is.

That way you should be able to turn the rx around and allow it to be closer to the mount, without the xtal hitting the servo.

Thanks, i'll keep that in mind!!

Not wishing to labour my point, but the loading into the shock tower is offset from the centreline so you would get a twisting effect. Also have you heard for Newtons third law 60mph down the straight to compress the suspension induces a different load into the car. I was a Stress Engineer in my previous life..... Anyway, enough of this. We can agree to disagree! Peace!

But here is the fact, that Serpent is release the SS version (to catch up to the NS technology) in less than 3 month right after they releasing the MCP version(still base on RS).
So I think they will not releasing the KHM shortly.
Beside that the RR(long stroke) is coming..
Hmm.. Did not know that!
Thanks for the info m8

Default Weights

Just for information, I took the liberty to check the boxes for their weight labellings...

Serpent Impulse PRO - 2.445 kg
Serpent 705 - 2.275 kg
Serpent 710 - 2.3 kg

Perhaps the 710 box is heavier than the rest since the car is much lighter.

If you round off all numbers to one digit behind the comma:
Serpent Impulse PRO - 2.4 kg
Serpent 705 - 2.3 kg
Serpent 710 - 2.3 kg

So?

All it means is you are paying for almost twice the weight of the car.... (without engine and radio the car is probably close to 1300g)
Don't know if that makes it cheap or expensive though

Just for our information, what does the "Batch: D495" underneath the box mean? Date of manufacture?

Just a guess: In most manufacturing processes that run by some sort of QC system, (i.e. ISO 900X), they require batch tracability. In case a problem is discovered with the prouct during or after it is produced, there is a means to trace the product by batch number so that the problem can be corrected.
