Had to go a ways back to find my post but found that when I measured it was 9.5 center to center, still not 8.5 though, for some reason thought it was. With that 8.5 or 8 would produce a better ackerman split.

Please post some pics when you get it.

(On a side note, if the in out of the setting doesn't bother you're setup, I think one could just re-drill the original plate with a tighter spacing to see what it performs like )

Default Shocks x-ring

Do you guys have any advice or tips on how to smoothen the shocks action? At the moment I m building my LE, my 2nd s411, i found out 3 of the pre built shocks are not that smooth, my 1st s411 also have the same problem, only 2 of them are smooth. So today I disassemble the the prebuilt part of the shocks and found out the culprit to this was the x ring. Somehow the x rings on my 3 shocks looked like it was not cleanly round cut, there were burrs left over especially at the edges. I tried to cut those burrs but it was difficult to get it perfect. I m wondering are there any x ring or o ring (from other brand) that can fit nicely into our shocks.

Dameetz,

I am not sure if they fit or not but I do believe that Kyosho uses X rings on their shocks. You may want to look into that option.

Tamiya makes x-rings, too. I picked up a bunch in Hong Kong.

I think speedtech has 'em. If the serpent uses standard size o-rings, they should work. They fit in my TC6.1 shocks just fine.

I still say that is such a cool car. I may have to give that a go once funds allow it. Please let us know how it runs.

What body did you buy?

Steve

My S411 will be arriving Tuesday, just in time for the Midwest Hurricane Series to visit our local track next Saturday. What hex wrench is most common to the screws on the car?

Default 5/64

5/64 (green integy i think) will handle 95% of the screws. i only use 3 wrenches. 5/64, 3mm, and 1.5mm. those 3 will handle 99.9% of the car.

5/64" is 1.98mm, so I'm guessing 2mm is the correct wrench.

I'd recommend investing in a decent 2mm. It's so common on r/c cars you'll use it more that the rest of your wrenches combined. M3 nuts also use a 5.5mm nut driver, which can be hard to find. Associated makes a flat steel wrench that's 5mm on one end and 5.5mm on the other that's really cheap and comes in handy for me on my non-serpent cars. Wheel nuts are usually 7mm, and you'll have to take wheels on and off enough that it is nice to have a good one. If you buy wrenches, get something with a grippy handle so you can hang on when you've got shock oil, diff grease, or tire sauce on your hands. The cheap plastic handle ones at your LHS are ok for the off sizes like 1/16 (robinsion pinion screws), 1.5mm (set screws and m2.5 screws), 2.5mm and 3mm.

I dont know if anyone needs a good start for a RCGT class for the 411 but here one is. It has excellent corner speed and keeps the rear planted through out the race.

Best regards,
James
