Hey guys,

can anybody tell me which partnumber the tamiya cvd drive shaft has(Including inserts and cvd wheel axles) that fits the s400??
I believe it's the 46mm shaft??
I know it's been discussed a few times here, but I believe no partnumbers were mentioned.

Thanks in advance!

53724 is the blue aluminium 46mm swing shaft
84007 is the same 46mm swing shaft but in black alu.

53500 is the cross joint axle.

Those are the parts needed to convert.

Well, today was my first race with the S400 (switching from a 416)...NICE! The car was near perfect out of the box. I added a lap and a half to my personal best! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a gear diff. I think I'll switch to Tamiya 46mm CVD bones, I broke one today with a light tap of the wall, I've heard from others too that they may be brittle.

It should be Silicone diff oil, not just the regular diff grease.
Good starting point is 2000 wt.

Have Serpent decided to totally drop the optional front diff, it's not even listed on their web site.
Does a rear diff fits in front ???

Has anyone had issues with the front wheel nuts coming loose and what did you do to rectify it?

Thanks

Serpent wheel nuts are some of the best out there. You just have to make sure they are really tight to begin with. They are designed so they grab against the wheel so they don't back off. Hope this helps
