Now trying to get into the sport

For some reason serpent didn't put a tools need to construct kit in the manual
i downloaded it from there wedsite and so far i have guessed on .PDF page 42 FASTENING MATERIALS
2.5mm/3mm/4mm/5mm/Hex Drivers
3.5mm Phillips Head
2.5mm Flat head
909597Centax gap-tool alu (I ordered the one from xceed)

any thing else???
Thoes are the tools you should have in you tool case if you have been in this hobby already if not then you need to buy them to keep in your tool kit. also you will need ball end hex drivers also.

Hi

can someone please tell me the distance to drill the holes for the link system from middle hole in the rear to the front hole of the link system.
And the distance from the tank to the left and the right hole.

See the attached picture.

Thanks

Last year with M3 : Semi

2010 with S966 : A main baby!

I could not be more pleased with this car. I think the only thing I changed all week on the car was going between the Blitz and the 909. Very solid car.

It was your driving not the car. The m3 evo is faster than the m3. We will see at the worlds next year. Kyosho will win again. But congats to the winners the 966 is a great car.

Why would you want to put a measly kyosho part on the all powerful 966?

Yes, that is what I am running right now....but it is coming out. My Kyosho tank at the Nats came up at 121 to 122cc. It seemed everytime I went through tech the CC count was different. So the Serpent tank will go back in.

But yes, the tank does work.
