Based on your experience, which bearing(s) tend to get damaged first? I wanna keep some spares so i would like to know which are the ones prone to damages.

Also, I checked in RC-mushroom for 710 hop up parts. The prices for ori Serpent alloy parts seem to be a lot more costly compared to those made by say, 3Racing. Especially the alloy parts. Is there a reason why? Are the ori Serpent ones much better in terms of quality?

confused:
Serpent alloy parts are top notch quality thats the reason why they are a little bit expensive than the rest second is prices are based in EURO so exchange rate is also a little higher than the US Dollar

Hi all,

A while ago, someone suggested using some Kawahara central driveshafts for the front dogbones on an S710... they are a bit longer and thicker.

These were part of a special Kawahara central driveshaft set (one long, one short). You had to buy 2 sets in order to get 1 pair of the front dogbones.

What is the part number and name for that Kawahara set?


Thanks!
Glen

I think it is Kawahara ZF-142 Centershaft. That is the numbers on the 2 bags I got from you, when I bought your S710. In the bags there is a long and a short dogbone.

Regards

Not really yet. Just went back to work after 4 week holiday and then I missing the 8 long M3 x 16 mm screws for the servos and I can't get these here in Chile, so I waiting for these. The club season will start March 20 and the National races in the end of April. I will only race the National races this year, so I have some time yet.

On Kawahara's website, it mentions ZF-143 instead of ZF-142...



Glenn, where did you get this Kawahara part? How much?

Hey Pyramid, congrats on your fine outing. Just saw your setup. You mentioned that you used front solid axle for the first time. The strange thing is you also locked the rear diff ! So front and rear solid. How is this setup different than the one you're always using? Mind sharing? Thanks.

Those look sweet. Are they aluminum? What is the cost?

Almost makes me want to give up my swing shafts.

Especcialy for the L. Collari Innotech Italian racing engine. No where in the world i have seen them cheaper. Which will suit your serpent 710 real fine.

They also sell Siro, MEGA, Shark, RB Concepts, Picco etc.

Surely worth a look. Great service too.
For the L Collari what engine model do you suggest?

You've been quiet about the Nats. Guess you're still in the doghouse

I have not seen you since the WinterNats. I hope the intrest rate is low. I am going to make you come to the track to get it. I need more driving lessons. I will let you drive the 950R.

I have a scheduling issue I am trying to workout right now. I will know soon.

Hi D,

I got them from someone who I believe is a forum member... but of course I forget his name at the moment...

Those were the ones he recommended to me. The ones I got (and Claus now has) are blue not silver.
I forget what the price was...

Just be careful not to clip any curbs or boards... I see the 950R is fairly fragile compared to the 950 and other cars. I know several 1:8 drivers who are trying to find old 950 cars because they don't like their 950R's.

Me? I'll stick with my new Veteq... it is awesome!!!!
