Cool. Have they arrived yet? I think you need 4 pieces right? Ummm, if they look just like ordinary piece of aluminum to support both the 10x15x4 bearings in the middle, then it's also easy to make your own...

Excellent ! Julius is right. With the front ball diffs, you can really tune how the car handles. How the car goes into the corner, comes out etc. You can tune the car without even having to tune the shocks etc.

I'll be using it in a race this weekend. Don't expect too much from the results though ! It's a huge track which would be very suitable for oneway but traction is lacking. So a ball diff would make driving more consistant.

Yes, just simple piece of aluminum that comes in set of 4 per bag. It will sits in between bearing through axle just like the aluminum spacer on your centax. It will be cheap and not worthed to make your own.

S710 setup to share... Please give us feedback in case you did try it on your local Tarmac track. It`s excellent to my knowledge with planted rear.

Forgot to mention that you would need to cut/shorten you upper arm by 2mm in order to have it set at `UBO` with -4 camber.

No thanks - last summer was a killer for me. We had temperatures upto 38 Deg C and I was cycling the whole time - god knows how it didn't kill me A Malaysian guy I work with was having a nightmare - he told me he moved to Germany to get away from that kind of weather

Thanks for sharing the setup Pyramid ! Some questions...

1. UBO / LT setting is pretty high rear roll center. I think that's about the same as what Michael did in Thailand. I'm currently testing UTI / LT. Just one step lower on the rear center than yours. Seem to be pretty OK for the car. Rotates quite well. But I like to use high roll center in the front. Makes the car shift nicely and fast in the on throttle chicanes. I believe Julius is currently having the same type of rollcenters in the front and rear.

2. Noticed you're using pretty soft rear sway bar setting with the inner mounting of the rear arm...

3. How does the 80wt or 70 wt Trinity Oil compare to Serpent's shock oil weight rating? About half that?

4. How is the fixed pistons (used in the rear) different from the adjustable ones (used in the front)?

5. Concerning droop... Mind telling us what shock lengths did you use? That would determine how much droop by using your method. I'll check to see if my droop settings are like what you described.

6. DRS arm... By saying it is below, I take it that the rear wheel will toe in on cornering? I hope you took the LT position of the rear bottom pivot pin into account when mentioning the DRS arm...

Sorry for the many questions !
