Default REAR FLUID DIFF FOR THE 710

Does anyone know where to get the rear fluid diff for the 710 in the US? Also I heard they have a upgraded 710. Anyone have any pics besides the one they have on MYTSN.

You can get the gear diff from Serpent USA, or have your LHS get it from there.

I believe the upgraded 710 just includes the common upgrades that everybody already uses... no new parts.

undo the 4 screws that hold the 2 halves together, split it open & fill away. 20000 wt x-ray diff oil works nicely on a med traction surface

Default Bearings

What do you guys do to recondition your 710 bearings for the upcoming season. I have my car stripped down right now and am wondering what i should do with the bearings? I know some people take the seals off and clean them out and others just soak them in brake cleaner. Any suggestions? I also noticed some of the ball joints are binding now whats the best way to free those up?

With the national races starting again in less than a month, mine is in pieces too. I'll just do the usual with the bearings, seals off, blast with degreaser and then re-oil and re-seal. The rest like the ball joints just need cleaning and a bit of polishing and they're good again.

I remove all the bearings from the car, then remove the seals. Soak the bearings in Shellite then place on a paper towel to dry. Then replace one seal in each bearing & reoil using inox or Serpent bearing oil. Replace other seal & reinstall into car.

For binding pivot points, polish the metal parts & reinstall. Make sure the caps arent to tight to cause binding.
