I don't think so. we have the summer sizzler in august, then a trip back to cali for my brothers wedding in september, then vegas for a week in october, I'm still sending money to the lawyers/court to probate my moms house, all while trying to finish up the 66Mustang to "maybe" put it for sale, wanna buy springs to lower the new Challenger and tint the windows, buying a Motorcycle from Mikey to turn into a street tracker, very busy this summer/fall. heck I might even skip the sizzler this year. looking at all the RC stuff I have and asking why? and just ordering a Losi 22 to add to the mess,

I sorry what was the question, oh yea, NO, not going to the GP.

btw, i knew what you meant, I was just playing with ya.

I was currious as if anyone has tried the S411 on carpet yet? Also was wondering if anyone has switched to one of these from one of the other top touring cars (Xray, Tamiya, TC6 etc) and how does it compare as far as handling.

Hi guys. I just ordered a S411 and had some questions if it's not too much trouble. I might be asking questions that people might have already asked, so please bare with me.

1.) People were having trouble with a servo saver not fitting. Did anyone solve this issue?

2.) I run 17.5 No boost on carpet. What Brands of spurs fit, and what size would be a good starting point?

3.) For the people that already have ran the car, What Parts are more prone to break? or is it the usual, knuckles, C-hubs, arms, etc?

4.) The Spec-R blades people are speaking of. Those are ones for the Xray, correct?

I just hope the aluminum used is of quality grade. I know from experience the the aluminum used for the rear pods for the S120 bend extremely easy. Paul Ciccarello had to machine pods out of thicker aluminum to correct it.

I was looking forward to seeing one but it looks like no one is going to represent Serpent at the Asphalt Nationals. That is too bad because it would help expose the car to the rest of the non serpent following community.

well you have to understand that S411 just came out on the market and it isn't enough time to figure out the car and getting all the bug out... come on give the serpent team more time ...

Good point. but wouldn't the race be a good place to figure out the car and what not? I mean what better place than an actual race setting? just a thought.

first, they'd have to have drivers that race this class on their team. far as i know the whole u.s. crew is down with the off-road and 1/8th scale nitro at the moment. i suspect, the push for the updated car was coming from overseas where the ets series still makes tc a valuable market for them.

honestly, tc setups are as easy to figure out as ever right now. all the cars are so identical, that they all use the same (hpi) springs, (tamiya) pistons, and appendage geometry. sure, they'll take some tweaks to hone in a particular chassis, but that's only as good as the track is that day anyway. anymore, it just comes down to what color anodizing you want your car to have ...
