Default Thanks scoyle

Thanks for the listing of the part numbers. I guess I am lucky as I have a few of the xray belts on hand from my TRF upgrade.. I read somewhere else that the blocks are compatible too.. can you verify this..

Again thanks

No real need to change the S400 Shocks to Tamiya, Xray, or anything else!!! The RCC shocks are good enough, and so easy to set up and maintain. Dont believe the hype--unless BUtter says so...otherwise, its not needed

I looked at Xray ballends and cups and they would work perfectly, but since my lhs has to order Xray parts and the waiting time is at least 3-4 days i rather modified the originals and held the geometry unchanged (I didn't check with the pair of Xray ballends i borrowed if they would change any angles).

No...not exactly......but close


As for the Xray shocks they fit perfectly. I know because I use them not because the RCC shocks are inferior, but with all the leftover stuff I have from my days with Xray it was just easier to steal from my old stuff than fill the new RCC ones... I know i'm lazy...

Thumbs up Lipo top deck for the S400 Serpent

Hi Guys if anyone is interested in a new top deck for the S400 to fit 5000mah lipo batteries take a look www.tfracing.co.uk bulk orders for discount so get together.......always pleased to help out. the Lipo fits in
dead easy in fact it slips in, the top deck is very easy to fit in seconds, and also adds to cornering and stability of the car a much improved hop up part.

Sorry if this was covered previously. Is there some LiPo packs that fit the car without modifications?

I have read alot about the S400 and am really intrigued by it. Looking for a new chassis for the indoor carpet season starting soon. What hopups are people using on their cars? I read alot about Tamiya parts. What are these for?
