Like anything with racing longevity will vary. It is made from same urethane film used for paint protection on full size cars which is very tough.

You made the best choice! david,,getting the best out of this car?....hmmm.. well, do a "pilot" check before/ after each run. ( although 'sheet' happens sometimes) im usin' orion 3600 and 3800lipos,, you gotta file some parts to make em' fit. I think smc lipos fit well w/o any mods to do. We do parkin' lot racin' every weekend usin' rubber Pirreli "worm" tires,,heheh. good luck and Snakes rule!!!!

I have had a TC5 for the last year that i speced up to TC5R so im pretty keen to see how this car goes. i still find it strange that this car doesnt seem that popular here in Australia. dont know if its cause of availability of parts but im really excited to get this car up and running!!

All the SMC lipos with the top exit wires don't fit, my Orion 3400 would fit if I filed the bulkhead down but I don't think it's worth it since it's just a practice pack.

Default S400 Lipo Topdeck

Hi Guys

Does anyone here have an updated email address for Vesa?
I am trying to get some lipo topdecks from him, but the email address I found on this thread and on his website ([email protected] or [email protected]) just bounce back to me?

If anyone knows if his email address has changed, please let me know.

I have sent him a pm, but not sure how often he comes onto this thread.

Thanks
Mike

i got the same reply long time ago but i've been waiting for serpent to release the top deck, and till now, still no story...

i wonder has anyone make a 1 piece top deck exactly like the trf416WE (the rear part does seems better design with 416 motor mount)..?

Hey guys... Im having a setback with my S400... The front wheel vibrate excessively when I accelerate with the wheels turned into a direction.

Heres what I have checked:

-CVDs arent bent
-Play within the cvd is not excessive
-It does it at any point of the turning of the wheels....


Please let me know if you know whats wrong with it or atleast you can guess what could be wrong... Thanks.

check for hub bearing having too much play. also try rotating the tires front to back. if running rubber you may have an issue with foam shifting inside the wheel
check
