I dont know if they fit but if you would fit Tamiya Axles you'd need the hex hub also.

tamiya axles do fit but you need tamiya hexs as the depth of the pin slot is different and serpent hexs bind on the bearing when used with tamiya hexs

Hey guys I'll be posting my winning setup from round 2 of the Florida State Electric Series it will be available on the Serpent website. If you have any setup questions or questions in general regarding the S400 please feel free to ask away.

I also wanted to thank Paolo Morganti, Serpent and Exceed tools for their support!

Some racers who are looking for the last bit of weight savings are running Tamiya CVD's. However, keep an eye out for a new release from Serpent around late april that will make you happy...
