Any commonly broken parts? Looking to order some spares and wondering what i may need.
Also looking for an aluminum servo horn, using savox 1258.
Thanks!

During my 2 months of racing it, the only thing I have broke is the mounts that support the bumper that are attached to the trans. Seem anytime I land on the back bumper they break right away. On my 3rd set

Wow, I've had my for about a month and haven't had any issues yet. I like this truck way better than my SC10.2 and I haven't really gotten into tunning it a whole lot yet.

What shock parts are you looking for?

I haven't broken anything on mines but I added CF battery strap and shock towers. The rear CF tower requires the RM buggy bulkhead though.

I'm still using the stock servo horn as the spacer makes other servo horns fit not as well.

It's how ackerman is changed on the SRX-2 vehicles. Instead of moving the steering link on the rack, the steering link is moved on the arm. The ballstud on the rack faces forward instead of up like many other vehicles.

1 is least aggressive and 3 is most aggressive.

Would like to try one of these out but can't seem to find a used on here for sale. Seems from what I have read, the Serpent is a good truck. I like the fact that I can use my Losi/Tekno offset tires and rims.

Do the carbon towers improve anything?

Just strength and cool factor I think stock is just fine. I might change my mind out on the carpet though which is what you mention you run on.

Front end seems to be a little lite or bouncy on the straights and jumps nose up. Battery is forward. What else can I do? Running stock springs and Pistons with 35w ae oil in the front. Everything else feels good.
