I don't know this is a better solution for those who cannot get in touch with the Serpent shock tower as a replacement........you can buy 2 3racings shock towers from EBAY/DINBALL.........I think for the price of 2, is a little bit less then one stock tower from Serpent (I believed they are $40 from Serpent each)....

On top of that..........you can pick the SSG version for ALL SHOW and NO GO route. I usually won't recomment 3rd market parts for Serpent, but shock towers is not something that important, also, the price of 2 to 1, it is a bargain.

What is odd is....they have only 2 shock positions....why? and what happened to the rest?

Hmm, sneaky.... Now let me just recap:

This is a woman, who dresses up as a man, but only in polka dots, has hairy legs, a moustache, a big beer belly and likes messing about with snakes..... Well, if I met a woman like that

Also-more specifically-has it been wearing front or rear pretty evenly-or all front or all back. And this is in 5 minute qualifers and 20 minute mains.

Thanks for the answers guys,

And somehow....HUDY one has a circle opening for you to adjust the 710 even thought that HUDY setup station is out almost 5 years already....

I bet Serpent designed the 710 rear uprights for some reason that only HUDY setup will work.
Rookie your'll probably find those top openings were for the Yokomo cars which have the same style of rear bearing block.

Sorry Rookie, I see Proficar has already answered this.

I adjust my camber without removing anything, using a Hudy 2.5 mm ball-tipped driver. So if Serpent and Hudy conspired to prevent the Integy set-up station from being used, they're not only sneaky, they're incompetent.

Wow, you are right on that. I've given up on trying to re-read the past pages.

I think Julius mentioned it an o so many posts ago. but to use the hudy setupsystem you'll need to make extra holes for the rear upright to align to make the adjustments for camber.

Wait.........are you saying that the HUDY one (that hole) is not even high enough for the S710? I didn't try it yet, but I saw there is a hole on on the HUDY one and assumed that will work.....

Hmmm, that mean another update from HUDY just for S710 is coming?

So you are saying you can adjust the camber by using HUDY setup system without remove or rotate anything.....? Well, that is what HUDY system suppose to be......unless you are talking about using Integy system, then I would like to know how.....

Don't think Hudy has them allready. Just read the following thread on mytsn for some more info.

Hudy only made one....108250 for 200mm TC, there are only 2 package, 1 is everything including ride height block and this and that, the other is setup station only............they are exactly the same thing.

I think drilling a big enough hole will clear the problem, at least HUDY is plastic compare to Integy (alum )...
