Hi Guys,

I just bought OS Speed 21XZ-R and the 2080 tune pipe for my Serpent GT car. Now I realised the 2080 manifold is not pointing correctly. Any of you guys using this engine on the GT car? Do I need to purchase the offroad manifold, ie the 2060 manifold and use it with the 2080 silencer?

thanks in advance

Yes, you need an offroad manifold.

Hay Paolo . Is there .much difference between the plastic a alloy braces ?
I have only used the alloy. I put them on from new assuming they would be stronger when I crash !
Kind regards Greg.

Serpent Cobra GTe, when can I get one of these? Site says end of Aug! Itís the 26th. Any idea on who I can order one through? More or less I want this to play with when we go quiet at Timezone. We also have a few guys who have created their own Kyosho GTe's like Ted who had his GTe out after the dinner at Timezone. Electric looks cool but it will never satisfy my love for the noise and smell of nitro. More or less looking to set it up similar to my Cobra Gt and race it for the love of racing!

So the GLC in Toledo, Ohio was over the weekend and Joaquin drove the Cobra in the GT class. All I have to say is that after having 2 Cobra's and a Xray completely kick my "bum" I may have to look into a new ride for next year...

Can you tell me what brand, shape, size etc this battery is and what you're using for voltage drop please ?

And did you have to modify the battery box, or what ??
