Of course,I understand that ina hard enough collision,ANYTHING will break.....but there is a certain amount that will be inflicted regardless..
For sure I don’t will promise that the rear or front suspension will hold every crash.
I only can tell you, that in all the testing the rear suspension never broke or bends.

[B]Rene, you can come and test at our track, if you wish At the moment there are lots of unexpected hazards like leaves and twigs and acorn nuts It may be important to test under these conditions


I know this track.
2 years ago I had driven in south Germany
And the big test sessions are over.
The only thing we must do now is getting together a good setup to improve. And go faster and faster,… .

But I do believe the suspension is no more falible than other cars on the market. We crashed the car more than once during testing, and broke no parts. Wooden boards? We'll see for sure at the crash test track of the Florida Winternats, but I'm quite optimistic.

Julius


I'm sure it will be fine.....Thank God I've been racing a nitro tc3 for 2 years..Learned the lesson's of hitting the boards,and learned to stay off them

I thought it may be familiar to you It's a great track to drive on, but only since I changed the one-way to a solid have I been able to really drive on it how I like to.
I'll volunteer for setup finding duties

Damn,you have computer problems for a few days and come back to find the forum has become one big snake pit.

The car looks good but the image gallery on the product page isn't working,what's up with that?

Definitely a smart move by serpent to have so many of there top guys publically representing the 710 on the no.1 nitro touring car forum on the net.

It will be interesting to read and hear about first reports once the cars hit the track and see if it lives up to expectations.

Salven,you the man when you don't have radio problems.

I'm actually very close to getting the setup I need on a very small tight track meant for electric cars with my Impulse PRO/705 and a front solid axle setup. I'm able to do quick S bend chicanes quite effortlessly. Just need to train the hand behind the Tx.

I'm told that using the Veteq rear springs (longer than normal) negates the need to use the pre-tension spring option.

In any case, is the 710 coming with the yellow Veteq springs or the original shorter Impulse yellow springs? I believe Veteq springs does not have orange springs (softest) and that their softest spring is white.

Also with the new sizes the belts run over larger diameter pulleys (especially the front belt) which makes them last longer and run smoother

Thanks Julius for that bit of info !

You are right. There is no orange Veteq spring.
The car will come with the standard springs (not the long one).

Julius mind if I ask what route do you usually fly? Do you fly AMS-KL? I take that sometimes but most of the time with code sharing MAS flight.
