I am sure 710 is an awesome car but I heard that 710 is fragile just like TC3, is that true? any 710 owner breaks a lot of parts?
There were problems when the car first came out, but Serpent has revised the parts already.

please dont given up

I don`t think you could bring the picture up by using url address since in it hidden on the server. Picture location is,

http://au.msnusers.com/_Secure/0SgAgA0MV0vr1cd8k5!cyutF!l!*XPO0YelqNKJT57S4D6E03n!gVNM1jhz5wECqdsr* IHRuX380vBaeBjLVGSYWrUTcg2Al6uj!EVJeoBq*rF28Hzr1D2 A/P1010006.JPG?dc=4675479415783412924

while your given url is the actual website directory to that picture?

How about this way,

There were problems when the car first came out, but Serpent has revised the parts already.

How do i know if i got the revised kit/parts?

You will never know!!
Serpent always make a running upgrade almost each batch.
On their last batch now, they put the thick rear shocktower already.

The options like adjustability, solid axle coversion, adjustable rear diff, easy to get to diffs, etc...etc.. make the car that much nicer. On the other side I find it lacks in steering. The 710 is not as tough as the MTX3 and cannot be made to take the abuse a MTX3 can. There are ways to toughen it up and make it less prone to breaking but not to the level of a MTX3. You can be the best driver in the world and it only takes one hacker to hit you and next thing you know your pivotballs are pulled out and you have a broken shock shaft. You are only as clean as the guy next to you will allow you to be. The 710 might have a slight advantage in my eyes as far as which car is faster on the track, but any thought of that is replaced very quickly when I wreck or get hacked. 30 minutes becomes a lifetime when you are driving defensively as to prevent a wreck.
Couldn't agree more.Both are good cars as I own both.
MTX3 - What more can you say.
S710 - Fast.Could benefit more if more rugged.
End of the day it's your choice.I'd go for parts availability at your lhs.

Default close but?

Both cars are very good but I really have to give the edge to Mugan. When I'm running test on the bodies I make the Mugan is more sensitive to changes that I do which helps me but the main thing is it's a stronger car. If you crash or get hit by another car the Mugan has a much better chance to keep racing and Serpent parts are way over priced !!! That said I do like serpents but If theres a important race comming up I'll use the Mugan!

New huh??? If you look closeley at that pic you will see it's a MTX-2 and that car under full power hit a stalled car at the end of a straight! It did bend the frame but finished the race. And this has happend twice (over the years) to that car. My Serpents on the other hand have been in some very miner crashes and couldent finish. I don't mean to say any thing bad about Serpents but my favorite class is 1/10 gas outlaws and some outlaw drivers can get pretty rough (not me LOL) but you don't see to many Serpents in that class


Maybe over your side, most in Asia is not and some parts even cheaper
: Maybe this is true but a (pair) of uprights for the front of a Mugan in the US cost under $10. My Serpent uprights are the same price except you only get one side!!!
