I think the old fart has dissapered somewhere in Europe - seems he thought the Ring would be there - the elixia to recapture his youth

Commenting on sir Julius Setup on Saturday is confusing.
He definetely dying for steering in mid-corner but why using harder front spring. More consistent?
On Sunday is more conservative, could be because the traction is way better than Saturday.
With the saturday setup I used 37 shore tires. I was having issues with traction roll so the yellow rear springs were to get a little more forgiveness in the car. Also the front roll center was lowered to get the car to change direction slower.

On sunday I changed back to the mid front roll center and in the end it proved a better combo with the red springs, but this was with 40 shore tires.

I have now stuck to using the highest front roll center. Found that it makes the car responsive.

Ooppss, so it was really a hard day on Saturday.
Not enough steering but can flip the car.
And Congrats with the result

BTW, Im kind of lost with this :
"Also the front roll center was lowered to get the car to change direction slower"
During my testing, place the arm higher is making my car change direction faster. Is it because you were using diff ?

It wasn't a hard day on Saturday. With the setup as posted I had a really good car. When I changed to 40 shore on Sunday I had to change a few things to get the balance right. It was faster and easier with 40s but I only had a limited amount of them, so I saved them till the important races.

Although you get more grip in the front with a lower roll-center (higher upper arm) because the car rolls more you slow down the response a bit. It depends on the type of track and grip probably.

Thank you, make sense.
I believe Per Ola-Hard had the same confusion with me, because the car reacting in different way. (pls refer to the feeling when we use "new-hole" on 705)
But your short explaination show me the light, im going to use that as my guideline.

WAAAA We lost...
The Dutch team was way too kind for the host. They kept giving the ball to the Portugese. But the hosting team topped the Dutch kindness by shooting the ball in their own goal. They should have just stopped being so nice and fight for the win like R/C guys do.

Oh well... I don't care... I ordered a 2nd 710 (for spare parts if I manage NOT to build it) and those new shiney Serpent option parts.

Great tires/rims combo. It's a perfect match for the Serpent sedans 710/705. The rims are so strong it makes rubbing the front steering knuckle a thing of the past.

There's actually a Twister thread on here if you want to hear more reaction to this tire

This is one way to do it. If you're not impressed by the wiring then maybe you might like the look of my newly rebuilt & re-serviced "snake" with its new "skin"!
