I plan on being in Monroe this weekend and you guys can get a closer look there at mine.

So far the few people who have run this car says that it steers and handles well. It also just won a race in HK I believe, which I hope to hear more details about but this is a good beginning.

Default S411 BLADES

WELL HERE WE GO. DISCOVERED THAT THE SPECR YOKOMO WHITE OPTION BLADES ARE A PERFECT FIT ONTO THE BALL AND INTO THE OUTDRIVES. SNUG AND LESS SLOP.

Serpent S411-specrbdblades1.jpg Serpent S411-specrbdblades2.jpg Serpent S411-spr008n_l.jpg

The blades in the S411 are the same as the S400 and do collapse under hi loads such as in OPEN class (MOD). The SPECR BD5 blades are a no modification fit into the dogs and into the drives and have less slop than the originals.

Cheers

Ren
