You will have problems with rear body mount. You will need the Serpent RTR rear mount. I fixed a post in the center of the kit version to work.

The kit mount position on the rear does fit using the outside posts.

Only thing you need is two new holes as the distance is wider and they are located more backwards.

I have a kit version here that does have two positions.

http://www.serpent.com/product/600583/

But there is also a smaller (older/newer ?) version with the same part number only having the inner mounting positions.

So there might be kits out there having different content.

This is the small one:
