Default S400 parts

Sorry guys, I was away for some weeks. Whats happening with the S400 parts. Are you not getting parts for the car? I was told that the new driveshafts were not made by the same supplier that make the other parts... and would be available without delays...
Feedback please...

I've been hearing "they'll have parts soon" since December. I'll believe it when I see it.

Has anyone figured out how to wedge a 40c 5000 mah lipo into the S400?
How about the weighted battery trays, any chance they can be offset just enough to clear the top deck?

i am looking for gear ratio help. I run 17.5 rubber with lipo and i currently have a 98 tooth 64p spur gear. in order to get the correct ratio on my car i had to borrow a 55t pinion. my track is a medium size good traction carpet track that flows very nicely. i have not changed the internal ratio either. any guidance for a new snake guy, I just switched from xray. also a nice setup for the car would be cool as well.

thanks

That puts you at 3.73 FDR. What are the locals running for the FDR?

serpent (v-design) lipo top deck is coming very soon... it should have 25+mm of clearance (without the battery lower bump)...
