Long time ago I did some trial laps with the Impulse of Matthias Meister, son of Karl-Heinz Meister. His impulse was fitted out with a solid front axle. It was excellent under breaking but difficult in cornering. I would say that a solid front axle is only an advantage on very specific tracks. But normally a one-way front end should be better - and on very twisty tracks a front end differential could help to improve. I drove my 705 only with a one-way.
My main problem with the one-way was spinning when breaking - which caused me to have a lot of high speed crashed and many replacement parts had to be bought. It all stems from a tweak which I can't seem to get rid of.

I thought the EVO III was going to be the same with its one-way diff, but I can get it to break perfectly in a straight line (i.e. no tweak!), but obviously not during turning.

I really need to rebuild my 705 to attempt to get rid of the tweak. It's not a weight distribution problem, as I have an MSP Tweak Station and from that I can see there is no tweak in the chassis - I think maybe one of the arms is binding a little.

This forum is quickly approaching the number of pages of the 705 forum! I was gone racing for a day and had about 10 pages to read!

I was wondering why serpent isn't just including the optional pins to change the one-way to a solid with the 710 kit. It just seems logical to me, since it is only a couple of pins. This is a very minor gripe, but a gripe nonetheless.

Also: A few pages back someone mentioned that serpent would include tires in the kit. I would like to suggest that serpent include something higher than the 35 shore tires that were included with the 705. I believe I am right in that most drivers are using somewhere in the 40 shore range currently. Also, you guys apparantly tested the cars with shores around 40. I have never even put 35s on my 705; I tried 37s and they were even too soft.

The new rim design for 2004 looks great though. It appears to give all the advantages (durability and dynamics) of the dish-style, but with easy pivot ball access and a very different look.

Default Mugen Guys

I notice the Mugen guys haven't infiltrated the this forum for a while, they must be busy getting a copy of the 710 ready for the Winter Nats.

The new rims do look very good - and look a bit more robust that the current ones. The current ones have certainly saved my car from some damage (they are always the first thing to break in an accident), but I think they break a little too quickly.

It'll be interesting to see if Serpent supply harder shore tyres, as the guys have already mentioned that they've been concentrating on mechanical grip, therefore allowing a harder tyre to be used.

Cheers, Mark.

Default Down graded

Scanning the image page on mytsn I notice that the el cheapo plastic radio plate support bracket has returned instead of the nice milled version on the 705, along with the standard steel drive shafts, axles and non-vented brake disk it looks like we'll be keeping the bank manager happy again with yet more expensive hop-ups. Come on Serpent you still got time to change these items before you start shipping.

The alu bracket isn't required - I asked Michael this already:

For me, though, most important is the amount of support and availability of spares - this is where Serpent can't be beat in my oppinion.
