I am disappointed as the new car doesn't have vent disk, hudy steel spring dog bones and axles as standard!
You guys are saying its the best/most exciting car to come from serpent, and I think the best car should come with the best AVAILABLE parts. And thoss parts listed are clearly better, in terms of hardness, weight.
And at 400USD a pop I think serpent can bare the little upgrade,, and add 20 USD, I don't think MOST consumers mind at all!!


The key word here is "UPGRADES"
Compare the overall quality and craftsmanship of any serpent car to any other maker and you will see that serpent has more built in upgrdes that most people dont see.

With fuel ?
I only know (like the rules sad) without fuel.
So our test car is 1675gramms.
But itís not exactly. With different (smaller or bigger) Tyres, or different hardness, or with different radio, body and even colours the weight can be different.

1675 grams WITH a painted body and tire's?

That combined with low rotating mass.......A shaft drive killer for sure..

I was hoping the car would be between 1650 & 1700 grams, 1675 is a very good weight to start out with,thanks

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.
Any comments on these, Rene?

I need to work hard on the setup of the car - transitioning from left-right and right-left is too slow - too much understeer, too. Then the CA glue seemed to melt and the tyre came off the rim Didn't have any CA with me, so that was the end of the day.

Still not quite getting the hang of the one-way though - spins too easily under breaking. I'll keep at it to see if I can get any better at the breaking.

He, Iím only one from Serpent, so I donít know everything.
About the bushing, the pins and the o-ring:
See it the other way around; if itís not in the kit, itís a cheep option to have a solid axle too.

The tyres : Iím not sure, but I believe in the 705 kitís where 37 shore tyres.
And witch tyres with the 710 comes, I donít know, but I will inform me.
