I also have installed all the 3Racing Hopups .(hopups cost more than complete car kit !) My car weighs in at 1.736 kg without body or fuel ! My car is fitted with the titanium pivot balls not the aluminium ones and replaced all screws on car with stainless steel ones ( from RCSCREWZ ).

All the replaced parts in aluminium have increased the weight substantially .
Is my 710 heavy ???

Default Titanium screws

Hi,

Does anyone use titanium screws in his Serpent 710?

Where did you find them?

I want to try titanium screws in my Serpent 710. Not because of the weight saving, but more for the strenght.

I thank you in advantage.

I'm not sure that the strength will be any better than the standard one - the are after all screwed into plastic parts.

I do have titanium screws, though - mine are all tamiya screws - just find a dealer who supplies good tamiya rc cars and he'll be able to order the screws for you.

Cheers, Mark.

Mine are all from Speedmind ... they used to have a package ready for the MTX3 which are 90% similar to the 710 ones.

I like that Stratus body they have on there.
It's from a company called East.
Has anyone heard of them?

Ti screws will not be as strong as stock for sure. You can tell as they can be cut easily using a plier. But you'll have a very hard time trying to cut or bend the stock steel screws. The advantage is in weight over stock and stronger but heavier than alu ones. I also noted that stock serpent screws tend to rust....

Most RC manufacturers use lower grades of Ti, which is a shame. Higher grade (5 and up ) Ti is just as strong as steel.

About stock Serpent screws; lately some are of poor quality. Especially 4mm grub screws and some 3 and 4mm button head screws don't fit my Hudy allen tools...
(yes, I used the correct size )

I use Duralube on my screws and the rust just falls off, it also keeps it from rusting. I was too lazy to take the car apart so I just put some on a Q-tip and smear it on the top of the screws or where I can reach them at. NO more rust for me
