I would think he can google Serpent in Holland or something Serpent in Netherlands and find something. They have to have a public facility there that sells Serpent.

I will also email Serpent and see if there is a phone number or address to give him.

Although they are Dutch, Serpent is not doing really well in our country....
The best changes he would have is with or "2 Brothers", or "Ermen racing"....

The easiest way to set-up a starter box is to take the top off of the box and place it against the chassis (turn your car over so it is chassis up). Move the starter box top around until the opening for the starter wheel lines up with the flywheel on the engine and start putting your locator pins/stops in place. Now reinstall the top back onto the starter box and everything should line up perfectly.

Hi,

Ive just bought a Serpent 966 and the kit turned up and it includes the 3 Orange belts, when i bought kit i also bought a set of low friction belts as spares, part number 903301. My questions are are the orange belts better than low friction ones ? do the orange ones last longer or lower friction ?

Thanks

Personally ive had bad experiences with low friction belts, they strip really easily, so yes the orange belts will last longer

Thanks Guys, i just wanted to clarrify what the orange ones were in relation to the low friction.

Also whats a good shock set up to start with ? tracks quite big and open, few hairpins here and there but alot of on power sweepers and corners.

I was thinking maybe 3 hole 1500cst front and 4 hole 1500cst rear ? unsure about springs just yet, i have the complete serpent spring set.
