3000-5000wt would be a good starting point. If you can't get the Serpent oil, any brand should work fine.

Man the S400 is stable!

Just drifting around the table a bit, rear toe at 0 and it works (better) then my older cars when they where set with 1.5+ toe-in.

Gear diff is also nice 1400CST in front one and 100K CST in rear.

hi guys, i just tested the CFI Front Short Arm. The arm is pretty stiff so i decide oni changet the front arm. 1st thing i notice after i change the arm, d front steering response more better and more shape when entering corner. It's does give more front steering.. It's make d car more easier to drive ..

that is my review..i'm using it in low traction track.....

I'm surprized that there were so few entries a couple weeks ago when I was trying to go to the race. Still should be fun for you guys though, the new track is awesome.

I'm surprised as well. Oh well.....If I run 13.5 I shouldn't go through tire's as fast. I have a new set fro every run on both days. I guess I'm set for club racing
