How many screws do I need to remove in order to take out the rear diffs? It had to take out 12 screws or so for it to come out. I was hoping there might be an easier way?

I remove 6. 4 on the bearings holder and 2 off the shock tower (the upper ones)

Oh! and the upper arm pin... to take the dogbones out

I only take out 8 and leave the shocks mounted:
2 screws from the chassis to thr rearplate
2 screws from the rear plate to the upper bearing blocks
4 screws from the upper to the lower bearing blocks

Will try it out next time without taking out the rear shock tower.

As for M3 titanium screws, I'm afraid that your only source would be to get from Tamiya or from Speedmind. I got mine from Xenon Racing which is for the electric Barracuda car.
Actually, Tower hobbies has selftapping ti screws from both Kyosho and HPI. The HPI ones are even with allen head. And the link PSI Racing mentioned (Integry) seems to have them too.

Right now I'm thinking Kyosho... $6.29 for 10pcs selftapping screws (philips head but near half the price of HPI) and $7.29 for 8pcs M3 with allen head, both button and flathead. Bad news is that most are out of stock or limited qty...

I haven't seen any shops that carry packs of Speedmind screws, just sets for specific cars...


Do I need titanium screws? No... It's my addiction that tells me to get them! Anyone else here have that problem? Maybe we can start a support group.

I hope you realise that using Schrijver99 method of removing the rear diff, the shock tower plus the rear plate detaches from the rear of the kit. The rear shock tower is still attached to the rear plate.

I may be wrong nut what I know is Ralph does not work for Serpent USA anymore but it has been common knowledge for like a year already. But he still drives for Serpent. The Evolva thingy is however new to me.

I don't know if I'm wrong but the Serpent ones are like 2.9 mm on the head. So using the 3 mm head ones would not make them countersunk into the chassis fully. Besides, I think there are some that need 3.5 mm.
