Can you run 15min on those 5600?
I only have one race on the Serpent and the batteries and didn't run them down. Our mains were 7 min with about 2 min of warm up laps. It used approx. 4000 mah. With my last vehicle, I was using a single 4s 5000mah turnigy pack and I could just make 15 min.

So i don't see why you couldn't run 15 min with the 5.6 unless your track is wide open and ur full throttle for most of the run.

Sorry i am running a lil behind on making post guys.

* better steering on power
longer rear hubs

down on the front link short front hole

12 deg blocks wont make better.

* Lipo straps
no issue getting into race sorry to say but the way the boxs are set up is more scure then anything i seen

when we had the car in protype a year ago at motoroma i watch alan burton have the straps come undone and almost lose the packs so pass on that.


*orion packs
yes they fit i have a set of 5000 5500 6500
and imo buying cheap lipo is like buying a cheap nitro motor what the point in buying junk

i bought 3 cheep packs and had 3 issue never again.

5500 packs get me close to 15 mins run time.

if i missed anything let me know

i've always bought hobby king packs and they have performed just as good, if not better then expensive ones. only thing i will not buy from them are chargers. don't get me wrong they are good but i have the powerlab 8 for 1300wt 40 amp charging. with that charger and nanotech's charging at 8c all u need is 2 sets of batteries (x4 2s) and 1 charger and u can run all day non stop.

I went to motorama this past weekend. 1st time out with the serpent and bumped up 2 times with it. even led the 3rd bump up till i screwed that up.

The buggy has all the turning you could ever want and fly's great. Only problem
i had all weekend with it, was the screw backing out of the shock shaft on 2 shocks(yes they were locktited). I ordered new locktite today.

Really happy with the buggy.

Default Diff setup

Hello..

I am going to drive on a large indoor track which is very loose.
I am thinking about 5000-5000-2000 for diff setup.
I havent got my car yet.
Anyone who have a great diff setup for this?

What do you guys think of this buggy so far? I'm thinking this might be my next buggy. I'll compare it with my Mugen and keep the better of the two.

Everyone loves it. Haven't heard one person say they disliked the buggy and it can win races

Got to run the car for the first time this weekend. Tried Porkchops setup and the car was dialed. Car has a ton of steering. Jumps spectacularly and handles the bumps better than anything I have driven. Kind of drove like losi but more stable. I highly recommend the car.
