How many racers using Lipo on S400 Serpents?
Hi Guys just wondered how many of you in the states are using 5000 mah lipo batteries on the Serpent S400 Touring Car ?
We found in the uk that using Nimh in the Nats we were down on power and by fitting lipo and going brushless it moved us up the grid.
Trouble was fitting the lipo to a car designed to take sub C cells, after carefully looking at the chassis it was decided to make a new top deck or top plate as you call it, so we made a couple of prototypes and bingo it worked a real treat not only can we slide in and out the lipo but the handling was even better than before, more positive cornering less tire wear no understeer or over steer, all for a simple mod that takes about 20minutes to do.
The design keeps the centre T bar and uses it to support the top deck with a countersunk hole to stop tweaking and keeps the flex in front of the T bar it screws down in the frame opposite to the motor and retains to top scew fix at the front, check it out on [url]www.tfracing.co.uk any questions guys I would be pleased to answer.
