For the front of the 710, it's 4 x M3 allen screws holding the front axle and to take out only one side of the front arm (choose the left upper arm), just loosen the set screw in the front left upper arm so that you can push and slide the hinge pin out and your front left upper arm comes out easy. The front diff or oneway will come off easy.

For the rear, 4 x M3 allen screws on the top holding the rear diff, 2 x M3 screws and 2 x M3 Philips screws at the bottom which hold the rear backplate (8 in total). Both rear upper arms comes out easy and the rear diff is accessible.



The thing is with the 710, you do not even need to take the rear diffs out to change out the oil or to clean it for maintenance. Once you set the internals correctly, you will not need to open it apart unless you need to replace the rear diff pulley.

If you want to change the rear diff tightness settings, you can do that externally with a 2.5 mm allen. Quick and fuss free. Even the pit guy can do for you before a start of a race.

If you need front braking when using the front oneway, it's just a matter of putting in two pins to lock the front oneway and you're good to go. Don't even need to do a change out. I believe those things above you should already be familiar...


very good points... but after driving the 710 for almost two years, i went back to mugen again. i like the mugen better.

Me too. I prefer the Mugen over the Serpent cars too.

Not even the Serpent R&D engineers have driven the 710 in pre-production and production form for 2 years...

i said almost 2 years because i know it's been more than year but not necessarily two years. almost is the keyword. but you know what i mean because when the car came out, you were probably one of the first ones who got them also just like me. or maybe you even got it sooner because i heard you test for them, right?

I like sarcarsm... I would have thought you tested for them since you "almost" (becareful, I'm using "almost" as a keyword here...) drove it for 2 years.

anyways, i got my serpent when it came out which was december of 2003 i think. i sold my mugen car cuz i couldn't afford having two kind of cars at once. so i used my serpent all along up until 3 weeks ago when i sold it and bought another mugen car. i personally like the mugen better. easier to setup and drive. but i won races with the serpent 710 also and brought home some hardware but like i said, i prefer the easy way which is the mugen.

but you know what, from what i've heard, you work for them and do r&d and such. that's a pretty cool job man.

i can't do such things because i'm not that good.

Coming back from the dead eh, RCLover? I guess it's true that your life is pretty boring without RC.
