you are right. had that same problem, my tensioning nut came loose after 10 runs, and I simply wasn't abe to drive in a straight line anymore. just add a little drop op threadlock on the nut and no problems at all.

Hi, are there any UK Team drivers on here at all ? Reason being I have been offered a drive with Serpent so should have my car within the next couple of weeks.

Im basically trying to contact any UK based drivers to start up some comms so as to get the best build and best drive out of the car ASAP.

Asside from that any other help would be appreciated. I have had a pm back from a couple of Serpent drivers now (thanks) and would appreciate any other info as well.

Ideally im looking towards a good setup for VTEC 27r tyres (I think they are similar to CS27's) on carpet, though I should get 1 tarmac meet in before this happens. By the way im running 19t , 6 cell.

thanks guys !

Good to hear you're success and overall satisfaction w/ the car...and if you dont mind, would you please be so kind to share w/ us your set up for that race?


Yesterday I took the car out for more testing and had a good time...the car is just simple and easy to drive...its stable and quick in and out, and changes direction vey well...next Sunday at Coral Springs we'll have our timing/scoring system up and running, God willing, and that will make testing and tuning even more interesting and worthwhile...hope to see you there

Hey everyone this last weekend at Potter said the S400's were all very good. I ran stock car was awesome but made some minor mistakes and overgeared, but still manged to finish 4th and take the lead in the Florida State Series. Once Potter gets that sheet up I will post my set up it was very good for a huge track and medium bite.

Great job, thank you!

I couldn't give value to rear inner upper camber link spacer, and couldn't select Asphalt nor Carpet nor Other.
