i love my 710 box stock its a winner, change the springs and its even better.

i was reading around the MyTSN website. and all of a sudden i see s710. is this just a car with more options? like that long servo saver arm and new adjustable diff collar? or does s710 merely mean Serpent 710?

sorry just not too sure about it.

anyways, how is that new diff collar and how do people like that long servo saver arm? ive yet to try them, but one of the hobby shops i go to normally showed me these new options, but i didnt want to buy something i mightve not liked. any feedback?

it just means serpent 710. but definitely try the new servo saver. it helps a lot. also, i would modify the front shock position. you can put spacers on the front shock tower to move it forward a tad and then mount the shocks on the backside of the tower. this makes the shocks more horizontal so they will be a tad stronger. hope this helps. very good car.

This was the case on the 705, it really made the car better.. i still have the spacers used on the 705, so that will work on the 710 too?
Gues i need to make that 3th bodypost-hole in the body bigger :P

wait a second, you mean make the shocks stronger as a whole? as in strength of the shock shaft etc.? or or you mean strength of the dampening force of the shock?

clarify please.

i do not know for sure if the spacers from the 705 will work or not, but they probably will do.

i mean the shock shaft will be stonger. it will be less prone to break. this is how probably all the team drivers have their cars set up.

The shocks are less prone to breaking when you mount them like Joe suggests, as they are no longer at a slight angle, where they are already under a slight bit of stress. If you then have a frontal crash, it doesn't take much to snap the rods.
Mounting the shocks so they are no longer angled helps reduce the chance that the rods will snap in a frontal crash.
I find that the shock action is also somewhat improved.

Cheers, Mark.

The spacer fits, but the shocks can't be mounted in the lowest hole...

Why not? It works fine for me with the Impulse spacers, and I'll guess that they are the same as the 705 ones? Have you tried turning them so that the flanged side is at the diff-side?

Edit: I realized that I may not be talking about the same spacers as you do.. My bad

You never use the lowest hole anyway.

I find the spacers look bad. I grind the plastic top part one mm thinner to get a little more clearance. I never broke a shock shaft. And yes I do crash sometimes (and when I do it's mostly big ones....)

The new shocks fit better. They don't need reworking to have some free movement.

You mean on the 705? I removed the spacers and trimmed the top-bumper-mount.... worked fine and the shocks where easyer to unmount (3mm in front in stead of back)
