Well done Andy and Mike. Serpent and Sweep is a great combination.

I picked up one of the RTR cars and ran it out of the box at our weekly races last night. That car is pretty impressive out of the box. I ran it the first round in sportsman and won the heat, then ran in the open class main with it and finished second to my teamate Ty. Not bad .

I was really impressed with that RTR. Gus slammed the door shut on me for a few laps holding the inside line with ease. Right out of the box that car has a good setup and holds its own on the track very well. This isn't your typical RTR this is a Serpent!

Try adjusting the clutch, sounds weird but sometimes if it engages too loose or even too tight this can happen. Does it do it with all of your tire sets? also check your drive pins.

Check these things....
I have had the same problem.

Check clutch bearings
Check two speed bearings
Check the diff' outdrives for pin wear.
check wheel balance

Aswell as the points others have noted

Regards
BM

Default 2 speed Adjustment

How far out can u go on the 2speed adjustment screws/springs before its out of spec. Stock is 5-1/2 turns out and yesterday, i finally got mine to shift pretty good at about 6- 3/4 turns out. Does this seem way to far out ? after our 3 hr enduro I took it all apart to inspect and then set it up back at stock setting and had to keep backing it off till i got it.

Also added a Buku clutch , maybe that made for having to adjust shifting some ? The thing Rips with that clutch

Is there any chance what your mentioning as vibrations might be tire chatter??

Every time i exit corners pull the throttle rear tire start bouncing/vibrate
Like 2-3 seconds and roll smooth again.

I tried my friend alpha tires and sweep (balanced) still doing it.


Thanks
