Thanks Arun for the info. Is this mini AE nut the one without the nylon at the end (just a flat nut) ? Do you have the part# for it also ? Thanks again.

Correct, no nylon. Part #7260 (team associated).

Viva la dogbones!
Thanks. I'll try your method. The spacing out that I do now is almost full proof.

Yup, couldn't agree more. Dogbones are more durable and rugged for nitro cars. I've been using my spring steel front dogbones for close to 2 years aleady and it's still there. Universals are meant more fo electric cars where efficiency is moe important.

Very true. I just don't think that universals can be built to be up to the task of handling today's engines. It's just one thing that I don't have to worry about on the serpent cars. I have been running my spring steel dogbones so long that the drive pins wore completely flat; at that point, I just turned the pins 90 degrees and ran them again!

You can replace the pins. You know that right?

Regarding axles. This is from Kolff back in april. Maybe something for the 710?

The Front axles are prototype CVD's that we are durability testing. They are holding up well but a release date is still to be decided.

Yup. I have not tried it myself but I believe there is a special tool by Hudy that does this. I believe it's 106000 HUDY ASSEMBLY TOOL for 3 mm pins.



The pins are actually available from Serpent as part number 9216.

hey guys, well i'm in the process of making slightly longer dog bones made of Titanium for the Serpent 705 for my car. Hopefully this will free up some Unsprung weight and stronger dog bones. Hopefully they will be done within 2 weeks and solve most of our problems.

chris

p.s. Are their any other things I can do to free up weight >?

993, if you're on a lookout for testers on your product, hook me up with it and I'll try it

You can do some titanium screws for the car, of course they have to be cheaper than the other ones , what about some titanium pivot balls, the stock ones are pretty heavy and the aluminum ones are pretty weak,, they break easly ,,

RC Pit Stop Shop...if you're familiar


I change those screws in 2 speed (6 flat head screws). Wow the 2 speed now is lighter than before. Thinking of changing the long screws in the 2 speed clutch.

I'm really interested to hear your findings. While I know that it'll give you very little unspruing weight, I would not know if Titanium has very good wearing properties...

Hey Paul,

Not forgetting titanium shafts for the 2 speed.
