I have both PMB and Hudy setup systems. One is for the Snake the other for NTC3. They both work the same...but honestly, the PMB one is a little dodgy, like D mentioned, the plastic is a little thinner which makes it flex a little when you're reading toe measurements. It doesn't give the same measurement twice after compressing the shocks. Just be a little careful.

26 mm wide front and 30 mm wide (or even 31 mm) rear.

That question you need to answer for yourself. Ask around the people on the track what shore hardness they are using. Harder shores last longer but generally gives you less traction. Sometimes even unusable at your track !

I suggest you stick with foams if you want to practise or if you plan to race. If you buy from certain places in HK, they can come up even cheaper than rubber tires with rims and inserts. With foams, you only got to play with the shore hardness variable unlike with rubber tires. Rubber tires once overheat will never not give you the same exact traction (even after it has cooled down) when it is new.

That's pretty excellent wear. Should be a nice track you run on !

Correct!

The track above is almost identical to the same track I goto in Taiwan except that the drivers stand is on the opposite side. I prefer the long straights closer to the driver stand like yours so that its easier to see when the car is WOT.

The straights in front of the driver stand can be pretty dangerous. The cars come out of the pit lane will directly be in the way where the cars are at the fastest !

i agree thats why in our track the pit lane is in a slow part of the track and the straightaway on the other side opposite of the drivers stand

This past weekend i ran my serpent 710 at one of my local tracks in a 20 minute main and the tires only wore out 3mm. I was running 37 shore front and rear.
I was also running 37 shores all around and I couldnt keep my car on all four wheels. Was flipping like a @#%[email protected]# from the high bite track I think its because my front and rear wheels had too much toe in. Just want to clear things up, the stock 710 tires come in 40 shores correct? I think in order for my car to run good with 37 shores is to toe out a bit more and use red springs that I am hoping will arrive my this weekend!

When I do the lift method I notice that both tires lift almost at the same time but one wheels drops down faster than the other. What could be the cause?

How do you mean that the wheel drops down faster? Do you mean when you compress and release the suspension?

If you haven't already done so, make sure that you are lifting the car on a perfectly level and even surface - use a spirit level to ensure that the surface is level.

Cheers, Mark.

When I lift the car both wheels come off the floor but one of the arms seems to drop faster than the other. I think it might have to do with the shocks not being even when rebounding. Dam it! I got bit by a mosquito! How the hell did it get into my place Trying to type and hunt it down at the same time

Maybe, can't help there - but it could be that there is more pre-tension on one side than the other (i.e. the tension used to get rid of any tweak).

Good luck with the mosquito - at least we don't have them here until June
