When would you run a spool in the rear? Maybe I am missing something.
Drifting definately. Spool in the rear with oneway up front.

I would ask for help if I were them. Get another company like 3Racing to make parts for the thing.

For that matter I dont see why the aftermarket hasnt jumped on the bandwagon for making serpent breakables.

Just a note, the -.5 block only needs 3mm under it.

This thread is sad because the car is awesome. I love how big the window of set up is on this car. Im not great at getting the set up right but this car is very forgiving in that area. Nonetheless it wont run right without parts.

Hello Guys:

I just wanted to keep you posted that we at Serpent America is trying hard to continue the support in this car. Personally I am also affected the lack of parts. So far didn't need parts but eventually I will also need. Once we have more info it will be posted.

S400 is a great kit undoubtfully... like it a lot... it's simple n nice... but we do hope to see parts on shelve so we can try to push harder n run faster... some upgrades should be produce periodically too... a little improvement here n there might bring this kit into bigger games... maybe a pro driver is essential to bring further development into this kit too... it might be very helpful too when racers may get help from factory drivers regarding car setup for certain races when they meet up at race...

tried it and it doesnt fit.
If the diff case was solid plastic we could machine it to fit but 720 gear diff has 5x10 bearings on the outdrives.
There was mention guys using Xray NT1 gear diffs but there hasnt been a reply as to how it was done.

Damn. Either they are coming out with a new model or nothing at all right? I certainly hope for a new model.
