I have a feeling I am going to get ripped for asking this .. but oh well

here we go .. Would a buggy body and wing easily fit on the serpent GT ? I know they should be the right size but would I be able to attach my posts to the rear shock shock tower? If I removed the front bumper would it work okay? Reason being is I want something fast onroad with a 2 speed and love the look of open wheel

Attn Buku clutch users. What is the solution for the rear brake disk touching the flywheel. It doesn't appear to affect performance, however my flywheel is now completely clear of the grooves and numbers for adjustment screws. Yes, the small disk is in the back. 15/19 pinion. 44/48 Spur.

Remove the rear disc brake. You only need the front brake. Single brake set up is plenty of breaking power.

Anyone know if this battery will be the cobra gt?

I have both servos HV so I don't need a regulator.

What's the body of preference of all u guys?

I ran the Sweep body early in the season(last summer up here in the NW) and then the Alpha for the TZGP. I like the looks of the Alpha better but it seemed maybe the Sweep Had better steering? ?

Any thoughts from the pro' s would be cool. P
Looking forward to our approaching season and trying to cure the winter blues by prepping my nitro for Spring. Can't Wait

Thankx,
Kevin
