Randy,

Can I ask what the following changes gave you in your setup;

-Ackerman still in back row but outside holes
-Front swaybar mounted inner hole on arm
-Front arms forward

Can I also say great result although if there was a girl that looked like that giving out prizes I reckon I would be putting on a big push to make the top of the A final as well

Actually all 3 of those changes were to get the car more aggressive on turn-in.

For those of you who cant get enough of the trophy girl, courtneyday.com should give you your fix.

If you look at the new S400 pics posted a few weeks back from S400 drivers, you will notice they have new design suspension blocks, new look spool, top deck and bulk heads

http://www.rctouring.eu/images/DSC_2441.JPG

take a close look at the Front suspension bracket...its diffrent, and the front spool is also diffrent.

Just wondering when this will be finally release and if it will be new kit or running change and when we will see this...need official report please
Don't know if you are Yohan or not....anyway going back to topic... revision sets actually should have being named "maintenance set". It's has being in the market since long time. Basically includes the parts to rebuild your shocks.

On the other hand, Serpent it's new to the electric scene and we have a lot to learn. Thanks to the input from drivers like Tim Potter, Randy Caster, Butter, Yohan, Billy Easton and many, many, many more (sorry the list will be way to long) around the globe, we will be able to improve our product in the near future. Actually, for a company that has being involved exclusively in gas racing for 25 plus year, i think the S400 is quite good. On the other side, i don't think we are doing anything different than the other manufacturers that have much more experience in electric racing tha us. They constantly improve they products bringing new stuff out.

Thanks for supporting our products.

Thanks Paolo, the car was good enough for the win, but unfortunately it just wasn't my day...

Ah I saw her a looooooong time ago, I think her boyfriend had a lowered black truck that she used to model for, and it kinda grew from that.

I haven't run the 1-way yet, nor have I ordered one so I'm not sure exactly what the problem is. If you can take pics of the problem I can advise a way to fix it.
