Andy63,

It's only because you made a blanket statement that it is slower than the A800 as a matter of fact.

It is not a matter of fact.

And like you say, you are working on areas that need improvement, i donīt see anything wrong in my statement as you say it yourself.

but just to clarify, i donīt mean to disrespect Viktor in any way, i wanted to help this newcomer hannhann00 get a perspective on two very different chassis putting pros vs cons.
But in the end, i favor the Serpent 4x greatly, so i dont understand the accusation of trashtalking a chassis i clearly favor in my arguments.
We have been having really good luck with the car on CRC black carpet which is about the highest grip you'll ever see.

Here is the setup that we have been running if anyone is interested.

chicky03, Did you guys do any shimming on the heave damper...front and rear? Also, are you guys running any alloy/titanium screws, ball studs, pillow balls or hinge pins?

no shimming, lots of alu screws and some steel and ti in the high stress parts.

I just adjust the turnbuckles for the ride height. I have the front cam all the way on high and the rear all the way on low.
