Come on you know how that goes....suffice to say changes are planned and will more than likely make the car more LiPo friendly among other things...

as i was being told previously, serpent was having trouble with their parts supplier hence they were planning to stop S400 n come out with a S401 (???) but now as many S400 users have demanded serpent to continue the S400, so somehow now they manage to reproduce these parts for continuing support of S400 n most probably, the S401 isn't necessary anymore but, S400 will have some upgrades for improvements... LiPO friendly n more options/upgrade parts...


upgrades available so far:

S400 has been great cars especially those with gear diff option included, it's more consistent n more durable... the new alu steering hubs/knuckles/upright is great... 2,4,6,8 degree alu c-hubs r very very much improve precision feedback... aramith belts, simply dismiss most of the headache for mod racers... many more lightweight options from serpent but those r not necessary, but it'll help reducing the weight of the car (S400 ain't light out of the box at all)... short carbon insert arms, improve response in short n tide course/track...


wished upgrades for S400:

i guess i would like to see 1 piece center shaft with spur holder being offer... well, after some time the spur holder does wobble in mine... i have no idea why that happens... maybe some hard coated light spring steel weight outdrives for front n rear also will be a great upgrade... stronger cvds please, maybe titanium unit will be nice, as long as stronger but not heavier than the ori steel unit...

santa please help us here too...

Mick -
Serpent has some setups on their site -www.serpent.com

Waiting on a Brushless (and for it to stop snowing on my days off) and then will be at the track dialing it in for carpet.

I did throw a 27T in it with stock setup and it felt really good like when you have the car 95% dialed in and you can just focus on driving instead of over-thinking things.

the new alu steering hubs/knuckles/upright is great... 2,4,6,8 degree alu c-hubs r very very much improve precision feedback... Ok someone better start pointing me to where I can get these!!!!

Two questions for you guys:
What effect does changing the diff oil to thinner or thicker have?
What effect does overdriving the front wheels have?
Thx,
G

I know this is not a selling thread, but just want to inform you S400 enthusiast that I have a brand new full bearing set for the S400 I'm not using because I'm driving another car. Looking for $25 shipped all over the world. PM me if interested. Thanx!

Default My s400's

I have two S400, set up to use lipos, One an orion 2400 and the other a track power 4900. I needed the Lipo plate and upper deck from the UK. with a bit of moding it worked amazing. I needed to make plate mounts. Where else to get mounts.. I was able to dremel old Serpent 720 nitro engine mounts to work (not the mono block).
Since I could not find the gear diffs, I was able to make 16 ball diffs, front and rear. I used Tamiya 35t pullies that supported 16 balls. I then used the Tamiya TRF501 offroad diff plate. These are larger diameter. Both have the Alloy body mounts front the Serpent 710/720.

I was planing on Anodising them Orange. However they quoted me $150 Canadian.. Forget it.

One of my s400's has the 2.0 ratio change. The other is stock, except the the lipo deck. I have one set up to run black can and 2400 orion for spec racing. The other is 2.0 with a new upper deck and lipo plate. This runs the 4900 track power and TRF415 blue CVD's, Also the carbon fibre arms.

I will add more pic later. This is a quick one of the orion set up.

Serpent to 1/10th EP Touring Kit S400-phpn9249rpm.jpg


Since the birth of my son I am only able to run one car.. Too may hobbies. I also play paintball so one of the Moded S400 are going up soon forsale or Trade. Trade for a TC5r for my other son. Since parts are hard to find in Canada this is my best option.
