I've had both and am faster with the durango. Parts are WAY cheaper for the Durango. Durango shock caps $6.99 vs serpent shock caps $30. Durango hinge pin inserts $4.99 vs serpent $30.

If you shop around you can get the durango cheaper than you think.

My cousin had the opposite results. Faster with the serpent then the durango. Also parts are no big deal, since the serpent is pretty much bulletproof. Also ebay has chop shops which have the parts you may need for cheap. But nothing is really needed.

I think it has more. Stock setup had way too much for me. Pm me your email and I'll send you a really nice setup.

you might try in the durango thread. I know responses there might be biased towards durango, but if anyone has driven the serpent and the durango, they'd probably be watching that thread.
