Please advise!
no not freely like a 1/12 scale, your twisting the chassis a little so its going to take a little bit of force to make it move

mine last a long time. pinions however, donet last as long due to being alloy. if you run on a dirty track, go off a bit and get things caught up, they dont last as long, but i have never stripped a spur on the 966. maybe 4 or 5 race meets i will replace if need be.

I just built a new car for my son for the nationals here.
The car's been sitting in the basement for a few days with slightly higher humidty because of a few days of rain.

Every single screw on this car is rusting now.
Looks awesome, I'm lovin' it

hi fellows, just want to comments on the recent Serpent manufacturing quality, not the material quality but the workmanship of parts.

I recently (finally) upgraded my 960 to a 966, new kit new built. I have to say, compare to the 960, which was the 1st gen kit, this 966 is awful to build. Parts don't fit without some "fine tuning", machined parts with lots of chips left in crevices, plastic parts need to de-bur of the extra material from the mode. This is so different in quality control compare to my 960 and even the 960/08 OS2 upgrade i did to my 960, which was still excellent for fit and finish. I major "mod" i have to do on the 966 was the rear axle pin that holds the quick release lever for the wheel, the pin will not go through without elongate the hole.

I also recently build a Mugen MBX-6 buggy, this is my first Mugen build and i have to say I have never build a kit that trouble free.

I know myself very well that as much as i am complaining now, i know i will buy another Serpent. what can you do???

anyway, i just wanted to see what you guys think on the quality of finish on Serpent cars/parts of late.

sorry for the long post

I have to agree entirely.
I've been a Mugen guy since I started nitro racing, but with the recent Off Road addiction of Mugen and the lack of support for On Road classes, I decided to make a switch to Serpent.

My son is running the 966 and I went for the 733.

I was really shocked about the amount of work it takes to build a functioning car.
Once it's built, the 966 is a great performing car and it also holds up well.

The 733 on the other hand is so fragile and it's so hard to keep a working setup on it, that I decided to give up on it after not even a full season.
