Ummm, nice avatar you got there... One of your old pics?
Thanks! I can't take credit for this one, though. I started with F1 photos well after the great Gilles Villeneuve died G.Villeneuve and Senna were, for me, the last great F1 drivers.

Both were great drivers but I guess times change and MS took it to a new level with sponsorship, PR, branding and commercialism. Well, Bernie did well for a used-car dealer!

One of the reasons I got out of F1 - it was such a pain-in-the-arse!!!
The path of F1 was enevitable once sponsorship became big in the late 80s. Today F1 is something different to what I remeber - I gave up following it a couple of years ago

Schrijver99, I think you only need one more post to transcend to the next level

It was not like prison . Testing that long time and already knowing to have a better car, but still driving on races with the existing car , was the hardest part of it.
Iím happy that itís over. Now we can really go for it.

Rene:

I read somewhere that to turn the one way to a solid diff you need to buy a option to do so? What is it and does it have a part number?

Also,

As i am new to serpent, are the springs for the 710 the same as previous models and do you offer them in a full kit or just in pairs etc?

Taken from the 710 FAQ;

is there a solid front axle included in the kit ?

Ronald Baar (NL) 14−11−03 at 17:16
Almost; the standard front shaft with one-way bearings can be locked by using the optional set #802252; in this set are 2 pins to lock the front shaft (there are 2 holes in the shaft and holes in the 2 driveshaft adaptors and an alu bushing to slide over the pins). Pictures in the product-section soon.


So I guess you need to buy the optional part that locks the one way front.

The shocks are the same as the 705. The yellow springs in the pics look the same as the ones from the 705. But in the FAQ, it is mentioned that there are going to be new optional springs.
