The also have the top plate in stock. They don't have the rear X Brace. Sorry.
Are you sure that's the right part?
This is what it looks like... The part where the axle goes through should be round, not oval right?


Having a look at the on point website it looks like I need to use part number OB102B or OB102O?
Would I be right?

Yes, sorry he makes both the Serpent style round and the associated style oval plates. You definitly want the round ones, 102B or 102O.

Also trying to find a place that sells WGT wheels, pink (soft) rear and hard fronts.
Can anyone help?

Ah, the bane of running Serpent. Parts availability. Or lack thereof.

A rather disrespectful comment I must say for a moderator.

Also as someone that has placed orders with three major manufacturers in the past week Serpent was the only one that had every part number needed in stock. Yes they may not have had the quantity desired but still had stock of everything. Can't seem to say that about the other two that were 90 to 98% out of stock on the entire order.

No, just personal experience from someone who has a Serpent S120, S120L, and S100.

Ask S400 owners about parts availability.

Im not sure where you are from but Amain, Stormer usually have a good supply of parts. If there is something they dont have I can usually locate it for you. The WGT tires, I don't know of anyone who sells those compounds specificly in the US but you could probably use 1/10 scale BSR oval tires if you want different compounds other than the spec compound. You wont be able to buy Spec WGT tires with a different compound than what is normal, lilac. The spec tires are available from Jaco, BSR and CRC.

Thanks, I managed to get the bits I wanted between Stormer and Rcmushroom. I ended up going for the On point side pods and the power rod rear stiffners. So hopefully these will be nice and strong.
Rcmushroom have Xceed WGT tyres, they're less then half the price the local hobby shop charges. We run soft rears and hard fronts here. Only thing is that they never have them in stock...

Are the 200mm and 235 mm pancar tires the same as far as wheel dimensions? If they are try www.rc4less.com

Hey all, managed to get my S100 running today. Got it running pretty well.
I race on low grip ashphalt, I run 25 tyres on the back and the link set up sloppy as. Still having a few issues with rear grip and laying the power down. We run 13.5t with 2 cell lipos.
I was running quite a bit of droop in the rear shock. Is it better to wind the rear shock in to lessen the droop?

Anyone have any other suggestions/ideas to help me out?

Love this car to bits, just need a bit more grip in the rear end to make it perfect.
