Does anyone know the FDR of the S400?
I thought it is 2.18.
If i change the front pulley to 36 instead of 35 does that change the FDR?

I've changed that because i made the one-way from a x-ray for the S400.
The pulley from serpent does not fit on the x-ray one-way, so i had the choice from a 34 tooth x-ray pulley, and a 36 tooth tamiya pulley.
The belt is no problemif you set it loose.

Choosing a 34 tooth would be way better because overdrive (34) can be good and give you more steering making the front wheels spin faster. But underdrive (36) never herd of it.. feel free to correct me if I am wrong

Hopefully unlike Yokomo,Serpent will listen to it's drivers when it comes to making changes to the car if they are needed.I know Easton's Yokomo was dialed but had a bunch of custom parts that Yokomo refused to release.

I ran the car the other day.It's pretty good.I think with some setup work for the track we run on,the car has potential. Still kind of at a loss for finding setups for asphalt. Anyone have a good starting point for high bite?

Use the set-up on the set up book. Its a very good staring point for outdoor asphalt. Work your way from there...

When will serpent drivers post their set-up on the website? Koran Nationals, and Austrian Nationals...where's the set-up? Billy E. /Cuffs ...get us those set up sheets...also what about blank PDF sheets?

We also need to update gearchart.com - they dont even have the S400 on the car list
