Lightbulb 710 upgrades for next season?

Anyone knows what improvements/minor upgrades Serpent planned for the next cold and dark Winter months? Heard something about improvement of rear arms but am not sure....

For the next rev till 5 we still trying to find perfect rear bevel diff set.
Should be more than 20 grams bro.. at least 45-50 grams if you were using FP-S9550 as steering servo.
With 60 grams it would change your car handling.. better direction.

Pyramid notes that the alu. mid pulley mount is way higher than plastic one so front belt would not scrub chasis anymore.

Called Sur at JITC last Sunday, the new mid pulley mount was back ordered though.

I told him to let me know once it becomes available.

Speaking of the servo, I'm using the Sanwa WRX for steering. Do you think 20 grams of ballast is enough to counterweight ?

Hi Om Redsand, looks like there isn`t one diff from other car that is suitable to be used on S710 unless we making the whole new one which is beyond our limits (otherwise we will just make a whole new car ).

One hour from now, all you need will be in Goldfinger office.. force him to sent you direct

As for WRX, I think another 100grs will make it perfect balance

Unfortunately, we do not have that. Also, it must be something that is still in current production so we wont have difficulties to find some more stocks
