I like the newest setup posted in the nitro section of the serpent site. The only change you will need to make is on ride hight and droop as those tires are a bit smaller. The front kick up and rear settings help a lot over the stock and are no cost.

My diffs are 200,300,50 I have the v1's though there are recommendations for v2 on the setup sheet. I also like the 60wt/800 shock oil as well. The red and white springs mentioned above worked well on the stock setup but I found my back end bottoming out with red on the softer shock set up.

The upgrades mentioned above are all good recommendations I would add the wheel off sets -1 or -2 in front and +2 or 3 in the rear. I have -1 up front and +3 in the rear.

Eventually you may want some different springs and sway bars but the ones in the newest setup work well for me. I messed with setup a lot making one change at a time.

the upgrades are nice but a lot can be done with a little shock and diff oil then tuning using various setting avail out of the box. After getting some fans, I would suggest getting the 0 degree hubs and 10 degree caster blocks (together removes 7 degrees) as it seems to help reduce front tire wear a lot.

6S, in a Cobra? Are you crazy?.....

But if you really want to, go for the Tekin Buggy motors....
I drive the 1900kV, on 6S, in my 966e.

On 6S the car can be very fast, depending of course on the motor you put in.

What's the size of the CC 2650 motor?

Or because you have the car, did you measure the available space already?

Motor mount
Machined 7075 T6 aluminium motor-mount with one-screw fixation and easy slider system. Flex-free and very strong motormount. The space for the motor allows a maximum motor-length of 72mm, which covers most widely used motors.

Ok, well depending a bit on the diameter of the motor, but you can put up to 72mm of can size in the Cobra, so yes, your CC 2650kv will fit.
