P.s I am running on very rough track
Thanks in advance
I would not worry about doing what you want to do. Just putting a truggy rear tower, shocks and the right oil and pistons is not going to make much if any difference. All the guys you see doing this lately even with other cars is accompanied buy other things that make it possible and actually make a difference, sometimes good and sometimes bad. There are a lot of good setups out there that can get you close to what you want with the stock buggy parts.


If you would like to post your setup we can help get you going in the right direction!

What is it that you want the car to do that it's not doing now?

yes what is the car doing and what do you need it to do better?? i run on a very rough track also.. lighter diffs will help out.. having high diff oils makes the car hyper active.. send me a pm with you email addy. i will send you a few setup to try out.. jeremy

I owned both and no way the serpent will turn anywhere near what the kyosho does. If it did I would still be rocking the serpent.

Now i know why you like the k car.. you overdrive. The k car can be pounded on and drive good. The losi and serpent you drive like wnd onroad car.. smooth and easy onthe throttle. Most guys just simply overdrive.. and yes i can turn under the k car.. ask scotty shin as i did it to him several times

Yes you use the same wire thickness. I have them on all my serpent cars. I like them. Ecause they are different and the wire system does give you a 2.1 wire as an added option. I have used the 2.1 a few times. Otherwise it's the same as running the rollbar but the cool factor is way up.

Hey guys I was wandering if serpent was going to release any updates or a new car? Really ready to buy another new one but I don't want to buy another car this week and they release something new the week after. Thanks
