They are still listed on the Serpent Holland website on the optionals page. My guess is they were not added to the Serpent America website yet because maybe they were sold out when they added most all of the other products. I have seen them listed at some other places though.

The fronts are in stock at demonpowerproducts. The rears are out of stock. The fronts are part nr. 401166 and the rears 401167.

Edit: spelling.

Mailed them 2 days ago but still no reply. Also mailed a couple others that show them as in stock but also no reply. I'm waiting. I could buy a used S400 just for that part but that makes no sense. In that case i'll buy another brand's car and be done with it. Schumacher, Xray and Corally seem to have no problems with spares.

EDIT: MMR is out of stock.

Here's a novel idea. Learn to read and understand that not everyone is in the US.

EDIT: On second thought i shouln't have said that. Anyway, they all replied already and don't have the part in stock. So i'm back to square one.

Thumbs up 2-speed.de just saved me :)

Yep, they refunded my payment for 401098 and sent the rest of my order. Today when i opened the box i saw the part in the attached picture. I didn't order that one and its not listed in Serpents site. As an added advantage, the slots are wider and can accept blades without dremmel work

Anyone knows the part number if it even exists ? Maybe something new is coming

After opening the paper invoice included with the order, i see its listed as 401112 - Solid axle front. A search for 401112 in serpent.com returns nothing. Serpent America returns Solid Axle RR and so does speedshop24.com.

EDIT: Not listed in the site but its listed in the manual. Nice to know the rear fits in the front. They should've just used the same design front and rear.

Anybody know what modification is necessary to use Tamiya 415 driveshafts in the front of the S400?

I just placed an order with Serpent America... I was thrilled to see steering knuckles in stock again.
