There are about 3 setups out there now as well as probably 5 guys on here that have tried it and run it now. It settles the car down and takes some of the aggression out of the initial turn in.

Thanks I thought that this may have been the case I think I will give it a shot to see what it feels like on our track. Outs is open and fast so it may be okay

Thanks

+1000!! Please post pics

Can you remove the topdeck so we can get a good look at the part, that is if it's already installed on the car.

Thanks,
Steve

Ive been using 2 on the front and 1.5 on the front rear. really smooths out the steering. It has been the best change ive made to the car so far.

I have some hard to find NIP option parts for sale for the 411. Flex top deck, alum rear drive shafts, 3.5 block and other items.

Serpent 411 Option Parts new. Hard to find in states!
