TJ, If your talking about the dogbones they fit without modification. I use steel in front and alum. in the rear.

p.s. Did Doug mention how many steering knuckles were in stock? I need them and 4 degree C hubs.

you need to change the cross joint to Tamiya if you wan to use Tamiya 46mm Swing shaft which is the s400 cross joint is alittle smaller than the Tamiya's.

anyone know how to make the turning angle of S400 bcome more smaller??? anyone ever try setting droop 6mm for front without having problem with the ride height ????

Thats the 19% VAT difference. And thats in Germany. In my country (Portugal), its 20%. Thats why we order so much from US and asian countries if we can get it past customs

i was just at MMR and they were very helpful with parts and setup for the s400. It was goodluck for me that I was able to get there. They have tons of parts there including the CFI arms. Give them a call or send an email, I'm sure they will ry thier best to help. I know I will.

What is very sad is that so many guys that have invested in there S400's are now dropping them for other makes due to the lack of key spares and unknown situation with Serpent.
Locally its a real dilema as the agents is one of the longest running and most respectable racers in our country but cant supply necessary parts.
They themselves had to cancel race entries for a national due to this.

Serpent should at least inform their supporters and loyal customers of what is happening !!!

Can anyone list what compatible parts from other makes can be used on a S400 please.
Are Tamiya a-arms, c-hubs and steering blocks interchangeable ?
