The only thing I am comparing between the Serpent/Durango is price. I've seen first hand how quickly the Durango's are breaking, so I'm not exactly interested in their product. I'm simply hoping for a lower cost of entry for the S411 platform. It would certainly make my decision easier to go for a new Eryx 3.0, rather than getting a used Eryx 2.0.

Nothing beats building a car out of the box, but paying an extra $300 to have that experience is a little hard for me to justify.

[QUOTE=Benzaah;13228085]Part number has not changed so I doubt the screw is in a different spot than before.

The only hole in the top deck I see is the one for the belt tensionor that doesn't line up with anything on the chassis, so I'd agree with you unless they do a running change in the top deck, but the pictures don't show that.


I reckon that's a typo as they have never had plastic versions of the 2 and 6 degree hubs and they are not listed as a spare anywhere. I hope it's true as I've always wanted to test the 6 degree hubs and never wanted to fork out for the Alu version.

Agreed, this is really mis-leading and NEEDS to be fixed up. As with the previous car, same thing stated, but no other c-hubs but the stock 4*. And nothing available other than the aluminum option ones. BTW, the 6* are a nice tuning option and work quite well.


Also the new shock o-rings seems to work well so far. ***I have to recant this statement, as after one run the new o-rings leaked very bad, first time I have had drips of oil on the spring collar and lower arms. It looks like the o-ring did not swell, but the inner hole expanded. I have now gone back to the blue Traxxas x-ring and the Yokomo shims.

Hoping the pics on the site are of a early production car, as I don't see the 3rd hole in the front shock tower for the extra body post either.

I am have to say, this chassis looks phenomenal. Been a long time Serpent fan and to me this looks like the next level. I will be keeping an eye out for race results. Very impressive.

are the 2.0 parts interchangeable with the 3.0? is the aluminum chassis geared more to asphalt or carpet, mod or stock?

I should have indicated petitrc.
It's the website hosting pages on some cars. Have a look here http://www.petitrc.com/ and look for Setup Sheet just under the banner.
