It does a little bit, but without the purple, I lean more toward XRAY because of the history of Serpent/XRAY. Many people dont remember or dont know that XRAY used to be distributed by Serpent. The bulkheads resemble the Cyclone yea yea, but to me, more like XRAY. See XRAY lovers, I give XRAY props, ya happy now!

Default lipo use

could someone that has the car measure the distance between the chassis plate and the lowest point on the rear bulkhead(the little nub i think) on the battery side. I would like to see what lipo packs i might fit in it.

thanks

I like how the shocks have a built in bleed system. Anything that makes shock building easier is great.

Looks good but your shocks are on upside down.

Must be the way the shocks are designed, they were intended to be used inverted. Other than that, whats the cut in the rear bulkheads for?

All you're doing is increasing unsprung weight running your shocks like that. I doubt Serpent would do such a thing.
