and it didn't come with a spacer for the pinions.

i do remember the flywheel being "serpent flywheel color" when i built 710 last year. anyways any info would be appreciated.
I don't know about the pinion colour but apparently the black flywheel has a better coating on it to allow for smoother flyweight movements. That's what I was told anyway ... so I got one too to test it.

Got a thicker rear shocktower, thicker bumber plate and longer rear lower arms too?
Oh, the new kits come with thicker rear shocktower, thicker bumber plate and longer rear lower arms?

What's the purpose of the longer rear arms? For more rear camber?

The shorter original arms could lead to the pivot balls being pulled out.

Well, I just got my new 710 to store beside my other one and it didn't come with any of the upgraded parts except the black flywheel and spring-steel-coloured gear.

Personally it makes very little difference to me - I've not broken anything since getting my first 710 even though I was practicing running into concerete curbstones on my track at the weekend

The 710 ran brilliantly both on Sat and Sunday here - my only change to the standard setup was to mount the front shocks on the lowest setting, remove the front anti-rollbar and set the right rear camber to -3.5 degrees.
I was getting minimal understeer going into the high speed turns (and was quicker than all other 1:10ths through there) and none at all into the hairpins.
Coming out of the turns the car drifted nicely and gave the confidence to really nail the throttle early and get good speed on the straight.
Under breaking, the rear end would lose just enough grip to give a really nice turn in.

It was really breath-taking to drive the car now just got to wait a couple of weeks until my next bike race is over and then I'll be back at the track!

Cheers, Mark.

For the ones coming out of the factory now, I think so... Those are running changes. It might even be different per kit depending how may of each item they had laying around? I have never seen or heard of that black flywheel though.

The longer rear lower arms (A-arm + DRS arm) are to prevent the pivotballs from being ripped out on impact.

Thanks for the info
Brian, can you describe how the car is loose and where it is loose? Before a turn, in the middle or after the corner? Off or on throttle?

Sorry but you coming from the NTC3, the first thing that comes into my mind is your rear diffs are slipping.

The new flywheels are black in colour. The new pinions are hudy spring steel coloured.
