I would like to know what problems that the 705 has that you're hearing... No durability issues. Problems only come when you assemble the kit wrongly.
If you know how to setup a car, you can make any car for that matter to handle the way you want it to.
Like Slotmachine mentioned, if you think 180x80 track is too tight for the Serpent, then any other track would be too huge for the 705
You should be lucky to run on that track size. The place where I come from, you would be lucky if you can get to run a straights of 150 feet
Yes, the MTX-3 is very well suited for small and tight tracks because of the internal drive ratio and the gearing. You can also make the 705 work good on smaller tracks... No, not like the 180x80 track that you mentioned
Smaller than that
You can change the stock pinions (16/19) to 15/18. If you need better acceleration, it's just a matter of changing the internal pulleys to change to a better internal drive ratio.
Any more questions, please ask
