His transmitter is not wrapped - it is painted orange. He has separated the transmitter - painted the black plastic - and put it all together again. I think he has used car paint.

Honestly, I've had no issues what so ever with the Serpent spurs. Fit fine, and seem to run pretty true. Can get into the mid 3's on thr FDR if needed with the options they have as well.

I have a Serpent spur on my car right. Works very well and the price is great too. There are others that work but they are more spendy.

Yes, on the smaller spurs, the holes are small. On my 112 tooth the holes are much larger. With a reamer the smaller holes can easily be opened up on the small spurs, obviously, just be careful. Also a ball head driver makes it easier too.

Marc is sponsored from Sanwa. I know he also has a M12, but his orange painted transmitter is a M11X.

Probably a comfort thing or to show it off. M11x still a very good choice if you dont want to spend $600. I use my m12 with m11x receivers just as much as m12 receivers and cant really notice a major difference.

We had a super hot 37c day here today with Track temps hitting 60c and lots of cars traction rolling. Not ideal conditions for my first run with the new car. My initial thoughts are Its a much more consistent car to drive even though I had an average set up on it all day. I really should have built the car with the kit set up instead of putting my V1 set up on there. The new diff is soooo much nicer than the old diff. Another racer who has switched from the awesomatix was frustrated earlier but after changing to a LTCR took the win ahead of a new T4 then myself. The X-rays were quicker but the new car is more consistent over the 6 minutes. We will get there with the set up. Today was too hot to be bothered wrenching. I think I need air con pits like at TITC.

Had my first outing last night with my new eryx 2.0 , I am very happy with the performance and love the car. Only issue I had with the car was the front belt coming off the front diff while leading the mod a main but that is an easy fix for the next race. Kit setting for the belt tension I guess is too loose for a 4.0 motor. Haha car has serious potential

I having an problem thats been causing DNF's lately. The rear bottom shock mount (set screw) is quite easy to be knocked out of the arm. Almost every time that I'm rear ended, it comes out. Is there a fix for this or am I the only one with this problem?

Get a longer set screw. I think a longer one is also needed on the front knuckle
