Im not the type to say this company copied that company, but that rear hub design looks a lot like the one on the Yokomo GT4. I still think that the GT4 has one of the most advance suspensions in the market.

Thanks,

Is there going to be an upgrade kit for the 705 to the 710? I'm going to be really PO'ed if there isn't.

This looks like a nice car, and just in time for my nitro appetite......

Any ideas on street price or is this a stupid question?

Probably around 399USD
If I am to get it, it is not going to be until Feb or so... Want to test the market reaction first.
Anyway, I am upset because they mentioned that they started the 710 resaerch 2 years ago, well that damn 705 came out a year ago!!! Not good for the consumers!!! If I knew there're working on the 710, and were planning on leting go the 705 design. I would have NEVER made the 705 purchase!!
They should have NEVER released the 705, but rather, the upgrade parts for impluse.!!

Hey you shouldnt be upset that they started the research 2yrs ago.It gave them time to ck the mkt and to see what other manufactors were doing and in which direction this class was going.Im glad to see that they took there time with developing the car as they did.and as far as changes goes I have 2 impacts and 2 impulses and 705 so you can imagine the number of parts that I have that may or may not be able to be used on the new car but thats ok with me.Seems like they listened to us the drivers and what we want in a car and they are going to deliver it to us.Im looking forword to the new car anything that Serpent does to me is a positive to the hobby and im looking forword to running the new leader of the nitro car scene!

The above is new to me. Some of the things that I was told is that you are able to lock the front one way to make it into a front solid axle. For the rear, they come stock with adjustable ball diffs and rear solid axle as optional part. You also can have adjustable ball diffs in the front !

Well, it does seem like a dream car with all the bells and whistles thrown into it !

I don't feel like buying another Nitro car...my 705 has less than 10 races under its belt. Oh well, the 705 will still be competitive for me, and if not, oh well...that's life.

R/C cars are starting to become obsolete just as fast as computers now.

Well, depends on when you bought the car of course... I got mine early January this year. So by some people's standards, 10 months is really long ! My Impulse PRO is nearly 2 years old and I'm still running it.

I think the rear 'active' toe in will be great, this I really have gotta see, so now RC cars are into so called 'active' technology.

Good to see that there will be a new Centax, the current one on a 705 feels a little sluggish to me.
