any1 has anymore links to some other part makers for s400..? can post it up here for sharing purpose... thanks...

Chassis can be found for Europrean area on www.the-border.com,..

To break the chassis that way, must of hit object at a 90degree angle, or jumping something!!!! Just wondering how!!

Good luck!

Hello guys:

Past week I chatted with serpent, it looks that they are trying to at least have sparte parts for the cars and have clients satisfied. They didn't told me how exactly when, but it looks promising. I hope that they start with spare parts again, I love my car and have some clients that love them too. The car is so easy to drive and set up for people like me that aren't experts on EP that will be a shame to loss this car.

Weird!!! One heck of a hit on asphalt, judging the scratches on te bottom of chassis. Sure it is the weakess part of chassis. Thats the way it goes!!

In the UK, the s400 has been loosing interest in the bigger races, but could be gaining where people are selling the car because of part worries, and being passed on to people happy to pay not much for the car and take a chance on the spares.

If the s400 was going to make a comeback, i'd expect to see someone high up in Serpent, or a A drive Team driver make an announcement in some good visual places, such as this forum to keep the car going.

If there isnt anything to report on from HQ and nothing is said, where does that leave people with an S400?

all said purely IMHO! ....

most of the scratches were made after the crack as i keep the car run for the next few minutes in the heat... the front shell weight puching the bumper down hence causing so much scrathes...

even billy easton is MIA now....seem like no top A-Main racer r using the S400....because why? i guess serpent is more concentrate on GP instead of EP. i think they come out with EP just because they dont want lose to XRAY...this both company always fighting.....

why they dont sign Jilles groskamp to drive their ep too ?? since jilles is driving their 733....

[QUOTE=M-Technic;6231085]Isn't that what they've been saying since October/November of last year?[/QUOTE



Maybe october!! Car was released a year b4. Problems started when Serpent shipped all gear to China. Crossing Slovakia to Chinese probably is the problem. Get the correct personal to operate gear. Though maybe 6 months for the change. Thier concerned with the 733's,966's &S240. Parts for the S120 is even getting short.

Serpentiers!!! Guess we have to wait on it. Bummer!!! And it's getting old!! Management problems!!! lol!!

Questions?? S400

I've been trying to replace my stock clunky steel turnbuckles with titanium ones. Does anyone know of titanium turnbuckle "sets/kits" that I can buy? I looked into lunsford, buying seperately but it adds up to about 70 bucks...kind of steep. any help please. Also I would like to replace the steel CVDs with aluminum or titanium ones, my stock says 48, does this mean that tamiya CVD's that are 48s will fit too? Is the diameter going to git through the S400 sized bearings in the uprights and steering knuckles?
