When you adjust the drag brake do you not only adjust it from the brake linkage screw but on your transmitter as well? Incase it starts to fade I was hoping you can adjust it using your tx? Is it possible without interfering with your carb settings?
I always adjusted from the linkage on the car for the drage brake. On TX, only adjusting how hard the maximum brake will be.

Optionals, actually I am no fan of optionals but as a team driver it is my duty to test things (a nice duty though.... hehe). I only use Serpent orginal option parts:

* The pro brake pads, works good almost no wear but the steel brake plate seems to wear instead (but cheaper to replace). I use the pro plate with holes.

* The middle axle alu support, good but not a must have....

* The radiotray and chassi alu support, really stiffens up the car and makes chassi bend less during a crash, a must have!

* The front alu levers for the anti-rollbar, a must have!

* The new rear rollbar, makes the rollbar action more accurate and no play, I recomend to try this one if traction is decent.

Another tips (I have used it the last weeks) is to use a longer inner pin in the rear driveshafts (11.7mm instead of 9.7mm) as this decreases the wear of the rear diff steelparts. These pins was used in the S-705 and Impact differentials and seems to work, make sure they are perfectly centered though.

Good luck!

rcpanama, thanks for the reply. I had that problem once before that the antenna connection was loose on the Tx. I could source out to the problem when I shook the Tx with the antenna extended and the servos on the car would glitch badly.

But anyway, to eliminate all possibilites, I have taken it out and tighten it back again. I have not tested it yet. Hope to do it soon.

Has anybody tried the 802325? As oppose to the stock ones, these pivot inserts have their hole in the middle which opens a whole lot more other rear roll center combinations !

It's nice to make people feel good though. Not so good for me to hog the limelight all the time.

Well, you could say that I purposely left that important one out for my good old friend.

On second thoughts, I think mine is much lighter now due to the 4 mm chassis being badly worn out ! I think the part below the engine (more towards the left rear) is already down to about 3.5 mm thick already.

Yes.

Perhaps to make yourself feel good despite the lack of track time, you could just take a sandstone and grind the bottom of the chassis to make it lighter and more importantly make it look like it is more "used". Just like a used Levi 501 denim jeans.

When you go over to Onkel Sow's track, you could feel good and show off to him proof of your many hours of running the 710.
