First part of my 710 turned up yesterday - unfortunately just the spares and the decal sheets which I ordered
The suspension arms are noticeably smaller than those from the 705.
Looking forward already to the big box turning up
However, it is just aswell that my 710 isn't here just yet, as we had another heavy snow fall last night

All you need is some snow tires for that track and your all set

Yes. Agree with you here. The plastic drivetrain parts of the 710 are much better than the 705.

The old tank already had a filter !

Just that the old one did not filter smaller particles and that is why an external one is needed.

As always, Serpent will not come out with a new part number for the tank. I'm pretty sure of that. They will just replace the tank with the one with the bronze filter. I think if you buy them as spare part, you would probablt get the new one.

Else, if yours is not broken, there is no need to change. Just keep using the external filter with it !

The stock is fine because after a while the belt loosens.

The only "complain" I have about the front and rear tensioner is that it only allows one notch for tightening the belts. No more.

On a side note, I think I ran my side belt too loose last weekend (mine set to the minimum tension). Going from the missing tooth at the side belt, I think the belt skipped. The front and rear belts are still stock from the box and the tensioner is still at stock position. Very free drivetrain.

How do you adjust the tensioner for the front and rear?

. . . if you go to a race like this and you are way off pace you usually end up replacing most of the parts on the car.. as the 1/8 scale cars will try and remove them without tools...

only parts we ended up putting on the car were lower and upper bumper plates and we deserved all of them.. It just will not hold up when you try and poush the 1/8 scales out of the way because they are slowing you down..
You practice with 1/8th scales on the track?
That sounds dangerous/expensive for both parties, yeah!

Read the manual on page 7, Step 1.9 for the front and page 11. Step 3.3 for the rear with regards to adjusting the eccentric hubs.

I cant seem to find the instruction manual and setup manual for the 710 online. Do you have a link to it? The links are playing tricks on me

Change the position of BOTH eccentric hubs to adjust and front rear belt tension. Both hubs should have the same position.
