I can post some pics I took the last time if I can still find them.

If not I can take them again... But then it would be difficult as I need to take out the upper deck etc.

What's in it for you? I thought you're driving a Mugen?

I picked up the Serpent pack also. Looks like AAA 700's. Had to cut the plastic wrap to get the tank seated properly.

What is the part number for this battery pack?

This is new to me as I thought that only the Impulse PRO had a pre-assembled battery pack...

The reason i stepped away from serpent was because i along with many others got screwed with the veteq and that is why sometimes i make some jokes about those snakes(there deadly).Serpent lost a lot of customers and trust with the veteq saga,including me.I sold my veteq after a clear demonstration of lying about the veteq.There was a race in europe somewhere last year i think it could have been in Spain where Salven went out with the team to compete and to our shock he was going to use the vector NT rather then the veteq.This clearly showed that there was something wrong with the veteq and it created quite a shit stir in the VIP room.I sold my veteq straight away after that and thought i wasn't going to get involved with serpent again even though they do have the best R/C site on the net MYTSN.

Now i'm just deciding which class i want to run in and for the winternats to be over to see how things go but i do have my sites set on a mtx3 even though i think the 8 scale is getting interesting now with so many big boy manufactures having excellent cars out and good competition.Anyway the history lesson is over now class dismissed..
Jun, I feel your pain... Well if you got the money then run 1/8th scale. Heck, if you have lots of money, then run 1/10 and 1/8th scale

Anyway, here's a pic I found on the front pulley assembly.

Thanks for the pic,yeah money thakfully is not an issue but time is. Looks like serpent might have got there act together with the 950 from what i'm reading on mytsn but it'll be a while before before i trust them again.200mm cars are popular but the speed of the 8 scale again is tempting,the tough decisions in life are just to depressing.

. The 1:8th is nice. I too want to get back in the groove. But the class is still small around or area. We would have to travel to other clubs 100miles away just to race every weekend. That wouldnt bother me too much but I like my club track and my 200mm cars.

Maybe next year. But this year I am concentrating on 200mm and 235mm 4WD. Need to practice far to much for the coming European championships.

This is a pic of the battery brace a friend and I had made by a local machine shop. You have to look real close, but it is an aluminum machined piece.

Is anyone running the solid rear spool on their 705?

I haven't tried it yet. Why?

I believe you need to use an Impact solid rear set (808370) and get the 46T for the Impact solid rear only (808371) separately as the Impact solid rear set comes with a 47T pulley unless you run a 22T brake pulley.

If you are not aware, you need to run the Impact solid rear as the stock dogbones on the 705 are similar in size as to the ones found on the Impact. They are definitely better in strength unlike the solid axle set for the Impulse (801401).

Team Serpent USA usually runs them but I think they will be reverting to the ball diff in the rear from the reports of the Winternats.
