Check the setups page on the Serpent website. Look at Chris Young's setup for Medina OH 2017. Hard pack with dust, very little grip. He ran away from everyone all day.

Sounds like a pretty good setup. Think I will check i out to get an idea on what setup he is using. I been printing out different setups to read over and see what guys are doing or not doing on the car.

Not sure how that would work indoors. I was at the race where Chris used that setup. Bite started out just shy of medium and went to hell from there. It was hot and very windy so the track kept drying out within minutes of watering. By the 3rd heat it was a dust bowl. But Chris's buggy was putting the power down. Literally left everyone in the dust. Side bite and forward grip were amazing and it jumped nice and level.

Been so busy since I got my new to me buggy that I have not had a chance to even go over the car. I mainly got it for indoors but I would like to get some work on it and put the parts all away but I also have a new Serpent 1/8th buggy to build this weekend. Just too many things to do and not enough time. Work is getting in the way.

Ordered some new shock pistons for my MH from RC Shox so I hope to get them in soon and give them a try at my local track and see how they feel. Just need to find time to get working on the car along with the my 2wd SC and my new 1/8th Serpent. Too many things to work on and not enough time to get it all done.

Also excited to try a few new things.
Got the 4 gear standup gearbox, longer driveshafts, shorter arms, front wing and carbon towers.

Couldn't pull the trigger on the alloy hubs and Carbon chassis, were a bit pricey.

Surprised still no real discussion on the car, its been great so far. Similar ot my old B5m, far better for me than the B6d. (low grip outdoors)

Ronald Bar responded to a question about the standard long and option short arms. he siad longer arms made the car more stable, however i would have guessed that short arms would give more grip/bite. Anyone compared on track?

Not sure whether this question belongs here or in the srx2 MM thread but, will the srx-MH body fit the srx2-MM? Im okay to doing some "custom" cutting. Lol. Thanks in advance!

My E Buggy is all built so now I can soon start working on my SRX2 MH buggy. I have the short servo for the car and the front aluminum bulkhead my buddy gave me for the car. Can't wait to get it all done and then get a custom paint job for my car. Going to drop my body off the week to my painters.

looking into getting and mh but I have a question. is there a difference in the normal kit and the team kit? if so what are they and is it worth buying one over the other? I see that on the desoto racing website they only offer the team kit (SER500008)
while they do not have the regular MH kit (SER500007)

The team kit replaced the mh kit. The team kit comes with alu shock caps, carbon towers and no extra stand up transmission. The mh came with the extra transmission but plastic caps and towers. The team kit is also cheaper and a better value.

I have a spare MH car and was thinking of converting it to a stadium truck for our turf track. I know back in the MM days people was converting them, but I wonder if anyone has converted the newer lay down cars. I was just wondering if you have converted them If you used the SC parts or something else.

Thanks for your time
Chris

So out of the box does the car need anything for a Med to high grip clay type track? I was thinking of getting the brass suspension mount to start with. Doesn’t look like the car needs anything else.
