Check with your dealer. They can pre-order the S411 LE from us, Serpent America, and we'll ship out the cars as soon as they arrive at our warehouse.

Looks like the DCJ shafts have been removed from the LE kit in favour of a second gear diff. Thanks to RAB hobbies i have mine on order and awaiting delivery

Hi iZzy,

I have tried the double joint bones today but found it is rubbing the c hub with close to full lock. The special bearing come with the bones kit in use but still rubbing it.

Do you guys just shave the c-hub to enlarge the space, or have I done something wrong?

Me, and Fischer too, always drive 100% (maximum) Steering. Everytime!

A gear diff isn't the solution, too - because a gear diff feels ways different for me. Sometimes i use a 500k Geardiff or cleaning gum Geardiff - and sometimes the Spool.

Best way to eliminate that problem is to use the Double-Joint CVDs. Then you have all ways possible, Geardiff or Spool in Front!

Hi !

You have to cut some Material from the inner C-Hub, but this is maximum 1mm (only on the inner side where the CVD ends) . Serpent made the Double-Joint CVDs bigger then the prototypes to make them more durable

As i know, they "edited" the plastic forms for the future about 0,5-1mm - so its only a temporary step with a dremel

i removed more material than that, only due to double shrink on them.
i had my doubts about them lasting, but i used them Friday, sat and sunday. no problems.
i think all serpent need to do is bevel the edge like they do on the other side. then it will be fine. pitty i have 4 more packets of C hubs. so i will have to dremmel them before use.

Well, it's correct enough to be true in this context. No matter what other physics behind or involved, a CVD WILL run unsmooth at a certain angle, resulting in unpleasant effects.
What the DJC is really doing is cutting the angle in half, postponing the problem.

(By the way: Why does the DJC solve the rattling problem, if the problem is not related to the huge angling of the joint, as you stated above? Please explain.)

I also have 100% steering rate on, but I seldom use all of it. 100% steering angle is only useful in really tight sections, where speed is low and rattling negligible.

Yes, gear diff in the front gives the car another character, I haven't said anything else. It works on every track for me though, with same oil. It makes the car flow through the turn, instead of hacking it's way through. I like it.

Have any of you guys found a 6 deg caster block that will work with this car? I have played with kickup in the front to try and get the same effect but I don't think it's the same... Also, have any of you played with using the different top decks (2mm, 2.5mm) with the 2.25 lower chassis to see what it does....or even cutting the top deck to get more flex. My car is good right now but I need to find more corner speed....

I'm in Canada (toronto) and ended up buying from HK. No Serpent dealers locally here... Shipping was quick. I ordered Monday and by Friday car/parts were delivered.

What problems are you referring to?

Curious as to why you would want a carbon front stay? The plastic is just fine... If anything a little more forgiving in a crash.
