Serpent 748 "Black Edition" !!!

Very nice car and build, does anybody noticed the flex in the rear part when breaking? When you brake, the braking force will lift the rear part. Do you guys have a solution for this or just drive it this way.

The 747 did this as well. If you pull very hard on the brakes this is normal.

I'm sure you will be far enough ahead of me Jamison that you won't get the cars confused... LOL
But you'll have to blame Timmie if it looks similar to yours... I can't paint my way out of a wet paper bag!
See you tomorrow morning... looking forward to this race.

What servo's are you guys running for steering and throttle? Was looking into the K.O. RSX-one10 response for both but wasn't sure if i needed a torque one for throttle.

Are people running the ERS-971s on both throttle and steering? Is the BLSv2 worth the price diff on the steering for the .01 speed increase and reduced torque?

Will be fine, every decent low profile will work.

Those servos will do just fine. Futaba is coming out with a new HV low profile servo BLS 571HV it will replace the discontinued BLS 551.

I am using the XPERT 3431 low profile servos in both positions on my 748 and they have been flawless thus far.
