ok, so who makes the tyres that are compatible with this car?

I am going to look into some type of spacer also.

while I am typing, ..


I read someone has put CDV in their 710? what does CDV stand for? and what is the benefit of the over that the car has?

I guess it would be that they dont get lost bc they are one piecew with the piece where rims sit?

The green spoked wheel (kit) are 26+,- mm wide; the white disk wheels are 27+,- mm wide. The latter barely clear the steering arms; the spoked ones have about 1 mm clearance. The forum on mytsn mentions that serpent is coming out with new wheels in a month or so--my bet is they have 1 mm ofset. Cut 1 mm off the inside of the disk Ellegis and you will have the same clearance as the spoked ones (still not much).
i guess im not the only one that cuts their rims down

i cut my fronts to 25mm or 24mm depending on track condition. cutting down leaves more room so you don't have to worry about spacers.

Not always. With all things there are limits. Going too wide will decrease performance.

I trim my fronts (GRP dish) to 26mm. They come 27mm wide from the box. Wack them on a truer and then using a file, grind the inside edge.

I think CVD's has less friction compared to dogbones.

CVD's have less play; they are generally lighter; they don't fall off; they tranfer power to the wheel more consistently than dogbones (because of less play); but they do require more maintenance than dogbones.

Personally, CVD's are the way to go... I hate dogbones

Smoother/less friction (when off throttle/freewheeling) .. yes agreed.
Lighter..?? disagree.. coz to make a CVD, the bulletproove one, they need to use some heavy-duty cold process steel. Far as I know, they will not beat the spring steel / heat-treated one in weight terms.
More consistent.. its about same rate.

Just my 2cents

What color were the protoype CVD's? What maintenances are needed for CVD's, just lubing?

I have a question for the Pro's. Once I get my car running wich should be within the next week or so, just waiting on the weather now as I will probably have my car completed tonight! I'm going to setup the car as the book says. I keep hereing that the 710 has this nasty push or oversteer. If I incounter this problem, what would be the first areas you would adjust to correct this problem?
I'm going to be running on a parking lot that has really smooth ashfault(only a few years old and doesn't see much traffic), it gets blown down before the track gets laid out. But it never gets a traction additive used like VHT. Let me know what you guys think that way the first time I go out there and the car does this pushing thing I won't be standing there with my hands down my pants! Everybody else there is running the R40 so I want to make a good impression the first time I head out! Everybody at the store is telling me to buy a R40(they don't know I bought the 710 yet )that it handles just as good as the 710 and the 710 is a piece of crap. So I want to go there on the first day and knock there socks off! Let me know, thanks.

The setup book has alot of info on the last page in that color coded sheet. It explains what problems you have and tells you what needs to be adjusted. I never really paid attention to it until I read really carefully how it works. Really good piece of information. I wished I had used it earlier in stead of Forrest Gumping it. But like everyone says, one adjustment at a time. If your looking for a PRO's advice then ask Julius. Hes a factory driver for Serpent I believe.
