The WOS axles have a total different effect. I use the pin in the Std hole.

Taner: to achieve more steering you just need the steering block. The axle are nice cause are lighter thanthe stock ones, so lees weigth on the rotating mass and suspended mass in the suspension

Hi Paolo,

Hi guys!
havent got any answer for my questions.
please answer..

What gearshaft are you using? titan? spp? standard?

then i wonder how you have mounted your reciever.. and i would like to see pictures. So i get an idea how to do. The problem for me is my friend that i bought the 960 from has brake the screwhole on the radioplate there the reciever is supposed to be mounted. maybe i can glue with epoxy or something and make a little hole in it? i dont feel to buy a new one for nearly 100 Euro

Hi Orfeous,

I had the Jp Titan and the standart shaft. But I broke both shafts. I ordered the spp shaft today. And hope it is stiffer than jp titanium and standart shaft.

The item is Very New and is not shown on Serpent site yet. The part # is SER 903208. Serpent USA doesn't have it as of yesterday but we have it on order. I would expect it to be available in the US soon.
Ashford Hobby SER 903208

its really light.. lighter than standard. beacuse of the new spp have been hollowed. it can be done with the standard steel shaft too. to lighten it up some.

I am a little knew to the 960 but know the front and rear transmissions aren't the same and would require different tire sizes. I have not seen in the manual, reference guide or setup guide any mention of this. The link above does not appear to work with the new site redesign.

Isn't this information a little important when running these cars?? Where do you go to get the necessary charts or information?? Any help would be appreciated.
