Good to hear. Don't overfill the diffs. Just put enough until you almost cover the cross.

Paulo,
Do you put the same 1.2 grams of oil in the GT diff as you do in the 747? Are you going to be runnin GT at the Byron's Challenge?

I think I may order another Ferrari F430 body. I ran that body at the RC Pro Nationals and really liked the way it made my Kyosho GT car handle.- Plus it looks awesome!

I will by available for tech information here, Please don't pm me because i always forgot to go check my pm's

I am waiting for Serpent to upload the editable setup sheet so i can post the setups i have ran so far. The link for the GT setup ares is:

http://serpent.com/product/600040/setups/

The default setup is very close at what i have being using. Please remember that all my test have being made with Alpha tires and Alpha R3 body.

Enjoy the build

Paolo
Thanks Paolo! Looking forward to building my first Serpent and definately not my last. Planning on also getting the new 747. My work bench is ready for the build on the Cobra GT!

Hey Daniel,
Sounds like you, me, and Tony will be running a Cobra real soon. Tony and I are going to Houston next Sat to test and tune. If you have yours by then you should join us.

Wish I could, I'll probably have the car ready to test but I have a major plumbing problem I'm completing on my home next saturday. I have to rent a trencher and run a new drain line. Ugh!! If you know anyone looking for a really nice roller Kyosho GT I'm selling mine with 2 extra chassis (1 stock and 1 carbon fiber Max Velocity, the roller already has the Dragon racing chassis) and all the spare parts.

Regards,

Daniel
