Good work serpent , make a truly different car and actually have it work is impressive. At least in today's standards.

Nope feels like any other car. Center spine makes the car very rigid

Some problem with spring supplier. Last notice on Facebook about the springs is that they should be available the end of the month (October) so hopefully soon!

I'm 1 of 3 people at my local club that has 1 of these and all of us are extremely pleased with them. We all run slightly different setups but all of us have had to fit a 1mm shim between the heave damper and the spring to achieve the required ride height for asphalt setups. The car is extremely competitive and easy to drive out of the box and I'm really happy bought this car!

Some of my mates seem to hate the car. They think it's overly complicated and I had it setup wrongly so it pushed like a ship but I still like it!

Need to get a wiki going I think!

I didn't hate on it. I like it too, just gotta fix the understeering issue. It's boring to see all the different manufactures come out with the same basic design.

Hahaha didn't include you in the some. Never selling it regardless of what people say. It's so unique!! I'll learn how to set it up!

Gotta find out where Rave Sir bought those springs from

Personally I've found it very easy to work on and setup. The car holds perfect tweek much better than any other conventional touring car I've owned. The setup is really straightforward once you get your head around it. The box setups are very safe and you can unlock the steering very easily. Just hop over to the Facebook page and you'll see David Ehbar answering many people's setup questions and no doubt you'll find some help with gaining the steering you want from the car. The 4x rotates better than any car out there!

I do think it's very easy to work on also. 6 screws and diff is out (a couple more than your average chassis but still easy enough none-the-less)

I'm on the facebook group and if there are any handling gripes I see people commenting about on there, its that there isn't enough entry steering but am sure this will be unlocked as more people get the car and more importantly those option springs become available!
