Need 58t 48p for 21.5

Thanks in advance
The ones with 6, 9, 12 holes. Xray, Kimborough, Precision racing, etc.. It might be hard to come by 58T, 48P gear that fits to Eryx, is it not? Try 74-78T 64 spur.

If you look at the pic I posted you can see the front holder fouls the top deck and the back holder has been ground and clears the deck. I would have thought my post was self explanatory.

the complaint about the spur holder is the side to side play when everything is assembled. nothing two thin shims can't fix. this was on the s411 2.0 eryx, not sure if all of them were this way but the first few released had it.

Oh now I can see. I didn't know what you meant by "Fouling" since it's not a specific term. Maybe I should check mine too.

After seeing Johnny's version of the RRS I tried the same. The only thing i did different is that I dremeled material away on my c-hub instead of the arms, to keep some of the flex characteristics of the suspension arm. After a short test I can say that the car handles really wel, the car has crazy corner speed and is very stable wich makes it forgivable as well. I hope to test some more with this modification. Good thing that serpent will produce this as upgrade, the only thing i'm "scared" of is that they will again come out with new suspension arms, already have enough arms that i can't use because there are newer versions, however the evolution of the arms is good

I have a Serpent S411 ERYX and I noticed that the wheelbase is a bit shorter when I was trying to line up a touring car body to make new mounting holes. It's not a big deal as I can trim the wheel wells to match the car. Is this normal for all Serpent cars?

no its a bit of a different body thing some fit better than others but it the same same with different manufacturers cars as well
focus on gettin the front right and the rear ends up where it has to go
What type of body???
Tourer or VTA

I was using this car for vta and the Ford Mustang body fit just fine. But the Protoform Mazda touring body I tried to mount would not line up. With the front wheels lined up with the body, the rear wheels are a bit too far forward so I have to trim the body a bit. So I compared it to my other car and it is a bit shorter so just wondering if this was normal for serpent cars.

Yes, the car has a shorter WB out of the box, but use the adjustment to fine tune for different tracks.

I usually run a long wheelbase on mine. Car's way more stable on-throttle when you do this

That's good to know. I bought my car used so I wasn't sure if it was assembled differently or correctly. I am thinking the shorter wheelbase will help the car rotate and turn better on tight technical tracks.
