Yup, you are right ! I guess Serpent needs to update that. My guess is that the 4 x 4 grub screw (H16) goes directly into the opposite direction of the diff assembly where the E18 screw goes in.

Much like step 3.5 in the 705 manual but then the diff uses a 5 x 5 grub screw.

Then, I use a 1.5 allen to BACK OUT the H12 setscrew so that the shock pivot ball is fully threaded onto the setscrew.

When you need to take off the shocks, then just do a reverse of the above. This is what I do anyways. Some may or may not disagree.



This is what I do too.
Would it weaken the mounting if you leave the setscrew in? I left it that way for my first race and it seemed to hold up.

I just wanted to thank you all for the setup information for the 705 (even if this is the 710 thread)! I picked up my kit a month or so ago and have one race so far. I have a question about the tank mounting. I moved the spacer that goes between the tank and the top plate so its now above the tank. It lowers the tank another 1/8" or so and still leaves enough room for the batteries below. Is this okay to do? Or will I have fuel delivery problems?

If the spacer is rubber i would say keep it underneath the tank because your fuel will bubble. I read in a post to put some fuel line under then tank on the post to stop some of vibration, if its sitting on the chassis it might get more vibration and your fuel will bubble more.

I kept an O ring between the tank and the plate for that very reason. The tank looked so high when I put the car together.

Perhaps, you can get an excuse to put bling bling aluminum parts without feeling any guilt !

But seriously, do gas powered cars really need to be balanced left and right weight distribution wise like what you do on eletric cars?
How about putting a few more coating on the body? That should give a very even weight distribution.
But then again butting more weight up top is a bad idea....

looks like I may have to add some with this new car.. It will be the first time I have ever gone to tech and not been told my brick passed.
Hey are you getting out of serpent?? I see that you're selling your 705 on ebay!

Not to mention....next to the "PART LIST" there is a "(10)" right next to it, means there are 10 listed title inside that directory, and after I click on the list, I've got......."There is NO PARTS"...

Well, time to talk to the IT ppl man...........
