My friend was only breaking in his 710 when he hit the wall at a slow speed. Didnt realize there was any damage until 3 weeks later which was today, I looked at his car and notice a crack on the top front bumper! It must have been that one hit, but I remember him going pretty dam slow. The whole piece was not broken just on one of the middle pieces on top that connects to the chassis. The bumper still works but its weird how it cracks so easily. I believe this must be the weak bumper people are talking about. This piece is definately too weak as a bumper if you ask me. They need to come up with a new design or material

At the moment, Im using 705 Lola bumper and trim to fit touring shell. Cut the (broken) top plate, leave the droop set screw area. Tougher and safer

Default Ralph's 710

From the snake pit report and pics, it looks like he's using a different sway bar (silver vs stock black). Sway bar settings are way hard the way the linkage is installed. Looking at the rear upper pivot ball spacing, I think he's using the long upper rear arm version instead of short.

I guess most guys are using 37 up front and 40 in the rears? If it suits them then I guess it would work with most tracks? It cant be that bad trying it out

Does not necessarily mean so. It all depends on the different setup you use and of course the driving style.

I use 37 shore front and 40 shore rear at the current moment as I'm testing the front solid axle. Will take out the pins and see how the car negaves with the same tires this weekend.
