Default Kit Tires

Julius / Rene, can you confirm what shore the tires in the kit includes? Manual says 801840 front 40 shore and 801841 rear 35 shore. But the default setup sheet in the setup book mentions front and rear 40 shore. Thanks.

I am still thinking about getting one! Actually I might just wait for the MTX5
Or I might wait a little bit for the serpent 711.55, with the newly designed SFC stearing block (SUPER Fluid Cornering) and Centax 8, hopefully the kit comes with 3mm titanium shock pins! Hollow design 6/4 titanium doggie bones... and maybe magnesium carbonate polymer arms!!??

Just got to know from another mate of mine that 48 boxes of 710 kits were sold out from one LHS in 3 days ! Perhaps other countries like HK, US, Holland would chart higher numbers?

Any idea how many 710 kits were shipped out of Holland to date?

Lawndoggie, where are you planning to run that car? The moon?

If that's the case, don't forget to mount anti gravitational foam tires !

Good idea! Perhaps then I won't have to go to LHS to get replacement parts every week!!
Actually I think things are getting better, I still break the same parts the same amount of times. But I managed to squeese in a few runs more than before!
I definitely won't be buying another serpent unless I get my driving skills up to par! I don't want to spend 40USD for parts every week. The same amount of parts could have been bought for half the price!!
I was checking the LHS about Lola conversion, I have to buy parts that cost around 40USD!! WTF!!!?
Forgetaboutit!! I just got the Minicooper body! I think I'll stick with TC setup, and run my Mini body!

USD 40? How can that be? It only cost about USD 30 or so here. HK is suppose to be cheaper !

Ummm, come to think of, the 710 kits are selling for like close to USD 340 here !!

HK is cheaper if you know the people... but I am still new to the hobby.... while everyone gets 20%off.. I get none!!
This is another reason I am not planning on getting another snake. There are 3-4 retailers that carry snakes here, not one of them are very nice to their customers.... thats my observation/experience. Of course many people will not agree with me...
In the end, its not just about having fun playing on the track, I want to enjoy the purchasing process too.... but lets just say that I hate buying from those dickheads...
