I have in my old Sakura. They worked excellent. Spring steel and for me, took about the same maintenance as the others with Xray axles. Better then Spec-R, though my serpent ones have been as low maintenance as I could have hoped and have outshined anything else. I actually rebuild the rear stock axles more often then the front DCJ's.

Arrowmax makes some good quality products though.

I think its serpent dcj working very well. I used them more than one year and they are still okay.

Post Servo Saver

For anyone who are still looking for a good server saver and requires the less amount of triming to get it to fit on the Eryx then give Yokomo B-Max2 MR server saver a try. I just put it on and it fit very well. The hight of the servo saver is exactly the same hight as the stock Serpent horn. I think I will need to shave a small amount of plastic on the base the horn to clear the L shape ball cup. To use this servo saver, you need to buy the following yokomo parts:

YOKB2-201 Servo Saver, Mount & Bellcrank Set
YOKB2-201SH Yokomo Servo Saver Metal Part Set


Here is the picture of the servo saver on my car.

I use some Team Associated Green Slime around the o-ring at the bottom of the shock. It's not a permanent fix, but it will keep the shock oil from leaking out.

This thread has a TON of good info, but it takes forever to sift through and find the best info/advice. Is there any way would could compile all of that info and put it onto the 1st page of this thread much like the thread for "TLR 22SCT Thread (Check First Page for FAQ & INFO)" (sorry can't post links yet)??

Considering how many 3rd party parts fit the S411, and are very popular, it would certainly save some time digging around for the info.

Are you using the kit black o rings? Serpent has some clear o rings that I am using. I tried some others that I had for other shocks but had more leakage with the other types. The serpent clear ones work great for me and my shocks are very nice overall.

Ok cool.
Are the clear o rings specific to the S411 ... option parts?
If you have part no that would be cool
