I recentley bought the serpent cvd's and i like them a lot. The car is much smoother trough the corners.
I heard from a driver, which had used the 3racing and serpent ones, that they both have a different point where they wear out. but he said the serpent ones where better cause you could replace individual parts.

Julius, you may indeed be biased but the fact the Serpent dog bones are better quality is dead on! I used various sets of 3Racing CVDs. The first ones (i.e. version 1.0) broke on me once. The next set, while never breaking did get warped quite easily. I'm not talking about any front end collisions with a wall, I'm talking brushes with the Zebra zone. They just warped over time.

After that I used dogbones from Kawahara for a while but when Serpent came out with CVDs, I tried 'em and really liked 'em. I've had a few side collisions with a barrier but they have not warped. Very pleased. I only use them in the front. Any advantage to using them in the rear?

Default Julius Heemstede Setup?

I''ve gone from racing at a big track with full-throttle sweeping curves to a much smaller one with a lot of tight turns and one really big straight away (it's driving me nuts!!). Grip varies (doesn't it always) and tire wear is high.

I was looking though mytsn for ideas on setups and I came across Julius' Heemstede setup for the transmission: 17/22 vs. 61/55. I get 17/22 and 61 for sure but 55? I tried it and I wonder if I'm doing something wrong. The car doesn't seem to be a lot faster on the straight-away. My understanding was if I go from 60 to 61 my top speed drops but acceleration is better (good in a short track situation since I'll never get to top speed anyway). Going from 56 to 55 though, shouldn't my top speed go up or do I need a really big piece of track to take advantage of that?

I'm using .7mm gap, yellow shoe, normal flyweights (better response on a shorter track), about 1.2-1.3 gap with the hard spring.

Thanks for all info! A last question though, what would you recommend, the 3-racing CVD's or new wheelaxles and dogbones?

i have used 3racing cvd on my 710 for awhile. No problem at all. I guess it really depends on what happen during the collision.

Don't rub it in... I'll bet you still have the original front shock shafts in there also.

thanks harry, finally i ordered both of them

but there'll be some suprize because i got new shark 2505 inline pipe set (5mm) instead of 2503 (5.2mm). i hope i won't have to make modification on sidepulley and it's not gonna gets engine hot as 2503.

by the way do you know why there is no information about 2503 nd 2505 inline pipe set on hardracing website? so interesting

Does anyone know when the gear diff will be coming out and if anyone has been involved in testing it?

Thanks

Yuck, a gear diff Mike?? I couldn't think of anything worse!!

After having a gear diff car and continually stripping gears, I love the ball diff, so easy to adjust as well. I would also assume a gear diff would weigh abit more, so more rotating mass.

Well i know that serpent are planning on releasing one and that it works well on slippery tracks. I also know that every car but the 710 uses one.
