I just read the press release for Billy Easton and was surprised to see this line:

Next week Billy will race the Serpent 1/10 4wd offroad car at the World in Japan together with his team-mate Jörn Neumann.

They're going to race the serpent at the offroad Worlds? I don't like it's chances.

hey all:Ya greasemonkey i agree it's a stretch to think that such a new 1/10 4wd buggy and even newer team drivers will do well at the worlds in 4wd,but this is the kinda race to find out what ya got and what needs to be improved on so guess the serpent team will give it a shot.Just my thoughts thanks

Hey guys I was able to hit the track today with my S400 the car was awesome out of the box. It just needed to be fine tuned so what I changed was:
-40 wt oil
-30% rebound front and rear
-1.3mm of uptravel (chassis to floor)
-and I went added a 1mm ship to the inner ball cup of the camber link to flatten all the links out.

Right n ow I am on my way to a differnt track and tomorrow I will try:
-35 wt oil
-2* of rear tow
-and some different droop settings

I will let you guys know the outcome and how the car was if anybody has any suggestions or things they have tried post them so we can get the car perfected....After today I found that the S400 is durable and handles very well grad I got one of these cars it has huge patential!!!!!

Bryan
