Scott has already been running for Serpent in 1/8 and 1/10 nitro for more almost two years. It would be obvious that he would leave whatever other electric gig he had as soon as Serpent made their comeback to 1/10 electric TC.

Defcone - I don't think Scott is related to the gear company of the same name. That person is Jay Kimbrough.

Ok great, because the new battery is an upgrade from an Orion 45C pack. Regardless of actual numbers the change is positive and I also gained another 1000mah in capacity as well. Unless you are also saying that Orion 6500mah is actually less.

To keep it on topic, how soon will the diff kit be available?

sometimes the Clip at the bottom sits out too far and rubs on the shaft. make sure its not scratching on the shaft, and causing your issues. if not, take the seals out and have a look nothing is caught up in there. maybe on one shock only, as mine i have replaced the seals, and all is good.

Thank you very much for this clarification, it is spot on. My name is actually Kimbrow, so therefore it would be easy to see I am not related to Jay....however, those are fabulous Kimbrough people

The switch to the S411 is a very obvious one for me as stated above, but I must say that I wouldn't even have ever had an exposure to EP touring car racing if it wasn't for the great support of T.O.P. and in particular E.J. Evans. I enjoyed racing for them and appreciate all of their support. Thanks E.J.!

Now back to your regularly scheduled program...... the Serpent S411

i have been using the Xray 84t 48p spur, and place a 1mm shim on the screws before they go in.
