Serpent actually has these lexan support for the inner body for some time. Check out part number 1784 and 1785.

Seriously, that reminded me of the incident in Thailand. I asked Michael why was his top carbon fibre brake plate with 2 missing M3 screws to secure to the left and right rear bulkheads. While expecting a technical answer from him, he said that he forgot to put it on !
i tot so at 1st...but when i asked him...he intentionally did it.

BUT i do remember my friend's rear shock tower mounting. He Actually forgotten to screw 2 more screws(4 screws)...and he thought his rear shocks can move up & down along with the body!! the thing just rock & roll front & back

710 Clean Sweep at the Summernats

The 2004 running of the Team Orion Summer-Nats turned into a Serpent 710 benefit. In the first major outing for the mighty new weapon, the 710 took all three podium positions after rain washed out the finals and the results were based on qualifying. Darrin Campbell emerged victorius followed by Simon Nicholson and Stewart Grant in a Serpent-Mega clean sweep.

And in Victoria…..
The Victorian Championships were on, where after qualifying the Serpent 710 driven by Steven Jovanovic set a stunning TQ time to sit atop the pack. Unfortunately some engine problems at the start of the final dropped him from contention.

Full Race reports to follow.

That's my preference for this body though so you'll need to try it at your own rick.
Hi Sow&Steady,
I did that but the car was tail happy. I believe could be that I was using 40shore tires instead of recommended 37 shore for that track. I will try again. Thanks.

I forgot where I read , it mentioned that all kind off body stiffener is not allowed for Touring Car class.
I could be wrong though..

If you plan on buying the tx module in the future the synth rx is not a bad idea. I love mine nice and small plenty of channels, nice easy turndial. you cant beat it
Thanks for the confirmation FTSPEEDWAY.

ok, here my 710 kit picture after 14 tanks (RS5 STS=6 tanks, Nova Max P5=8 tanks run-in)
If you followed the ROAR mark then it should be good. You'll need to amend your set-up accordingly then. I'm guessing your track is either giving you lots of grip or your set-up is doing it.

Time to use that set-up bible!

Good luck!

All new cars now come with it or have hop ups for it. That should be good enough reason to use it right?
Cybe, D is right and trust Serpent and us, some shells DO flex and this makes a lot of difference on high speed tracks.

Hmmm ... no a bad idea, especially if you put some kind of a flat thing at the top of the post.

Ahhhh OK!

Like I said ... if the 37 shore is still not satisfactory, use the "bible". It is a VERY VERY good set-up book!
