I see this thread is starting to get ugly.
e420x, here's some advice I gave to someone awhile back.
Don't bother with the first sentence.
It's too late for that.

All I could say is all the cars that are out right now are capable of winning.
The best advice I could give you on choosing your car is buy a car that you could buy parts for at your local hobby shop.
Buy something that fits your driving skills.
Make sure you get a car that you could get support from the guys at your track.
Bottom line, buy something that you like.

are you telling me bearings need less maintenance simply because they are on a 710 ? or the 710 use a different kinds of bearings that requires less maintenance?
Hi.. I'm back..

Being asked that question, looks like you no where liking the car.. so I should not bother to explain and I believe we both will prefer to play on track rather than here

I believe they call that Low internal ratio or someting I'm not sure as I do not read advertisment that much

again, from you point of view, no less. the 710 is fine, as i had stated in my previous post. just don't like hyped up sale pitches about the car but at least they are not directly from serpent.

suit yourself, never expect any factual explanation anyways. and i actually like it here than at the track, talk is much cheaper here.

Maybe before we start a war on "which is the best?" you should look at what you know about "setting up a car" If you dont know alot about "droop, downstops,upstops, camber etc etc and what they do i think you may have a hard time setting these cars up. If this is you first car you may want to go for something easier to start like a FW-04 or something just to get started i see alot of people buy these super tuneable cars and dont know how to tune them properly and get very fustrated at how hard they are to drive, and usually ending in quitting the hobby.

I dont see anyone giving "hyped up sales pitches" people are only saying what they think about there car to help this guy out!
And if Serpent didnt give sales pitches, how are they go sell there product? by telepathy?

I tough those subject is close already. Anyway, I come to realize that indeed we (mugen/serpent/kyosho/etc drivers) are all the same. We do not like things JUST BECAUSE we prefer other things. I see nothing wrong with that..
