Nah... I'm using the hollow Hudy one. Its a beauty, just took a little shortening and a little filling to fit.

An aluminum front shaft would be fine as long as your setscrews are tight.

I think when you hit "Notify me of updates to Serpent Chassis 4MM for 710" to the right of the product description, you will get an e-mail when it's back in stock.
I think he needs a chassis ASAP because he bent his.

Ah, you're way ahead of the game. Those are hard to come by these days. There were originally made for the Impact right?

Thats correct. I had it on my 835. They are still about. A very good investment if you can get your hands on them. Much like the front doggies from the impact/835, and the hudy oneway outdrives and front axles. All very good items and they fit the 710 perfectly. (the outdrives need a little shortening)

Sparky, thanks for these tips!

I've ordered the front 835 ones but it was out of a big guess. I wasn't sure if they'll fit. In any case, I'll need to wait because they're out of stock.

Where can I get the hollow shaft? Do you know?

Which Hudy 1-way outdrives do you mean? I mean from which XRay car?

You might be right, it was my rear ones (the original and now the Ti) that seems to wear quite a bit. Maybe I need to "punch" on the throttle less.

If you email mushroom they may be able to get you one. They told me they could get almost everything in the serpent range.

The out drives I'm talking about are the hudy steel ones from the 705/835. The ones with the 4 slots.

Oneway Outdrives

Wheel Axles (fit front and rear)

I think it's more of a track "problem". High speed sweeper will cause the tires to do that when you do not swap it around. Worst still when you go through the sweeper ON POWER !

I think that "bigger" tire needs less camber. About 0.5 or 1 less than what you're having.

808223.

Onkel Sow, I think you were sleeping when Onkel Sparsky gave tips on what he did to his 710 late last year way before Serpent came out with the options...

ok guys.. I know we cant all keep out 710's stock so has anyone tried any of the existing option parts that serpent have to offer?

808223 Inner Driveshaft Adaptors Light..... fit the front oneway, although you loose the locking function of the stock parts.

808220 Driveshafts Front... the Hudy spring steel bones for the front of the 835 fit both front and rear of the 710. They are actually just a smidgen(less than 0.5mm) shorter but fit very nicely.

Also the stock mid shaft is a fair bit shorter than the optional hollow midshaft for the 705/835 so it shouldnt take much to modify it to fit. I havent got one on hand to try, and I'm too lazy to pull it out of my 835 to check.
