Just from looks you can see where they went all plastic on many of the parts. I will be changing from the Dragon controller to my Futaba in the near future, but for right now i'm curious to see how it runs stock no mods or upgrades. By next week I will do a comparison with my Serpent pro kit with standard mods.

Can't lie, this RTR looks great the way it is now!!!!!

Good to hear I couldn't make up my mind which way to go pro or sport kit, do you happen to know the part# of the back plate for it to take off the pullstart can't deal with the pullstart.

You gonna love it... that RTR is amazing, I did that last KoPropo GP race from the box not changing anything except I used alpha tires and also make sure you put red locktite on set screw for gear coupler front and rear and also the center outdrive 2 speed.

Part number for the backplate is #13025. You can get it a SerpentAmerica.com

Glad to hear the RTR is doing well, I have to say after helping a buddy run his in I am very impressed with the quality of this car. Its a Serpent and hold its RTR components to that standard. Awesome car!

Henry C man you got to try the Sweeps in LA, they had more traction last time. We had everyone running them at the Airtronics GP. Do 40 rears with 45 fronts with EXP rubber.

I think we need or like to see more under the shell pictures. Lately it's been on the track running which is nice and dandy, but let's see what makes it GO! I like what Paolo does and sets his chassis to the side of his pit area for all to see.

I usually run the Slicks. You may want to go 45 all the way around with the summer heat starting to show up. It was much cooler during the Airtronics race.

45's with white foam and rok wheels. That's what I'm looking at for the next time down to that track.
