Yesterday, I tried switching to the stock Serpent 30 wt oil, composite shock body, yellow springs, 5 holes front and rear and stock shock mountings. 37 shore front with 40 shore rear. Tires at 63 mm front and rear.. Rear sway bar 3 mm. No front sway bar connected. Caster at 5 mm behind the front upper arm. Rear diff is medium light. Camber -2 front (left and right) and -4 rear left and -3.5 right. Front toe out -1 and rear +2. Rear trackwidth 197 mm and 200 mm front. Ride height is 5 mm front and 7 mm rear. Droop is 1 front and if I'm not mistaken +8 in the rear. DRS arm is in the above setting. Front rollcenter with 4 mm spacers under the front upper arm (lowest roll center). Rear rollcenter is with the lower pin at stock bottom position with the upper rear arm at the shortest upper arm position (UBO/LB).

Oh yes, the car felt lighter with the composite shock bodies !
And that is all you have to say after giving us all those details on your set-up??? Man!

Ok, Ok... Besides the mentioned decrease in weight due to the aluminum shock body , the car was fabulous ! On a short small technical track that is.

I'm actually not sure of this one right now. There are conflicting reports that the tank that we're currently having on the 710 is the same old tank and inner filter from the 705. Therefore we have to use an external filter.

The 710 is suppose to come with a "different" tank which has inserts inside the tank to compensate for fuel increase / decrease during tech inspection in big competition races. Externally, the 710 tank and the 705 tank looks exactly the same. I don't think any of our 710 cars have that new tank. If you have that tank, I do not think the external fuel filter is required. That was what I understood from the mytsn forum.

If you open the feulcap and you can see a hole for a screw at the bottom you have the new one (with brasscollor filter inside).
If you can't see it, you have the old one (705 tank with old white 705 "filter")

I also have the old one and have to use a fuelfilter

Is this what your talking about? The only thing I see is a hole with the fuel tube going into it.

Default Fuel Filter Route

How do you guys route the fuel filter ? Mine seems to rub the carbie linkage and not sure if there's any other way to route it.

It's actually not worth reading the German thread, as it degenerated into people abusing each other about pretty petty opinions.
