It's everything I wanted it to be and more. The only thing I know I will have to get as extra is the vented brake disc....

It looks like they have kept the battery holder and pack unchanged too, or does anyone see any difference? Now is the only question, when, oh when, will there be serpent 710 kit in my house...

looks like you can use the vented disk form the 705.Julius can you use the light wgt clutch bell from the 705 will the 1st and 2nd gears from the new car fit it

The car looks awesome what can I say!!!!

No more discusions on passive or active :

Dynamic Rear Steering (DRS)
A ground breaking feature that enables, depending on adjustment, toe-in setting changes during acceleration and braking as well as rear wheel steering assistance during cornering. The user can easily select from 4 settings on the singles arm wishbone to ensure that the car can be made suitable for all track conditions.

Think they are following our forum very often now. (everybody is here!)

The prices of the parts don't need to be "competitive" when they break 1/3 the time of other companies.

A couple of questions:
-Does the rear have adjustable roll center?
-Are the brake disk, clutch bell, and two speed components(other than gears) the same as the 705?
-Are the dogbones the same as the "fronts" from the 705?

Proficar 403, here are some answers to your questions:
1.Yes, the rear has an adjustable roll center and adjustable camber change as well!
2.Brake disk (hey it is brake from braking....NOT BREAKING...I hope!) and two speed stuff is the same, clutch is not.
3.The dogbones are not the same as the 705 but they are the same for the front and the rear!
