The "carbon fiber" wheels look stupid, but that's not Serpents fault.

You could almost save enough money to buy the car by opting for something other than the Black Diamond, they have already been surpased by Tekin, and Speed Passion, and LRP soon.

Xray has a Link car out now been available for about a month.

The "carbon" wheels are a sticker applied by one of 4 WGT legal manufactures. All are the same compound - Lilac.

I happen to like the carbon fiber rims as does everyone else that I've spoken to who has seen them. They are so much better looking than those ugly white dish rims and white rims in general. I think the carbon fiber gives them a "high tech" look. You guys are the only ones that have said they don't like them. Your opinion, my opinion.

I have the McKune CRC and it is good, I like this Serpent front end much better, seems a lot smoother easier. It took a lot of hours to get my CRC to work nice, my S120s were smooth and tight right out of the box. I also like the rear damper and although it is a lot of work to get set up as compared to the torpedo tubes I think it has a better chance of being consistant. Preferences I guess.
