Chassis is stable and fast out of the box. Only changes from kit is one 1 mm shim above the steering hub and one 1 mm shim under the the spring. Only one 1 mm shim under the lower front plate. Change damper fluid to 5k.

Thanks David E...

I just learned from FB serpent group that we can install 1/4x3/8 flanged bearing in the stock right axle holder!
Now i am working hard to find how to fit xray gear diff with minimal grinding parts on the car!
the main binding is from the xray gear diff cover and the serpent carbon rear wing support!
Spool fit just fine with 92t in box setup wheelbase!

David_E or anyone connected to the Serpent Facebook group, is there anyway to get the fb page to be public instead of private. I don't like fb in general but its hard to find all the latest info without being logged in.

This is a super cool car that was a pleasure to build with many innovative new features!

Got the kit yesterday and started the build. Here are my observations not knocking anything just some things to be aware of. First off there is no Manuel in the kit but a nice little USB flash drive that I assumed had the Manuel on it. Unfortunately when I plugged into the computer it was blank nothing on it. Thank goodness the Manuel is online. The graphite components are not to bad quality but did notice some delamination when tightening the screws. Might wanna CA all the graphite edges. One of the Slider mounts for the rear where the side springs sit was bound up due to the graphite not quite wide enough for the mount to fit. A little sanding of the cutout cleared it up enough to take out the bind. Other than those things the build went fairly smoothly. Now to add some electrics and see how it runs.

How well did the pod pivot left to right? One of my friends car lacked roll?

Right after I got the rear of the car assembled I was checking the movement. Rotated to the right no problem but when I went back left it hit a hard spot and kinda had to be forced for the bearing to slide up into the carrier. I took it back apart and found that the graphite arm where the aluminum holder for the side spring sits was a little tight and squeezing the sides of the aluminum in where the bearing rides causing the bind. Used my dremel to lightly sand the opening in the arm, put the carrier back in and now it's super smooth and equal on both sides. Hope you understand what I'm talking about but basically if you have to really press the carrier into the arm to bolt it up chances are it's gonna bind. Should be that peice just falls right in, bolt it down and your good.
