What parts are needed to run this car carpet with foams? I presume right out of the box it would be very good for rubber tires on carpet?

Car looks very interesting.

Thanks,

Out of the box all you need would be a Front Diff and some harder springs I'm running 33lbs Fronts and 19lbs Rears. Serpent USA should be getting parts inn on Wednesday so get your Hobby Shop to call them up so you guys can have spares parts..

Good Luck to all the Serpent drivers going to Vegas... CuffNizzels

Didnt really race, but worked on the setup a little more. Lilb and myself ran the car on HIGH bite asphalt, and as far as setups go, we have been much happier with shorter links on the car. I am really anxious for some tuning parts.

I have been using the Tamiya Roll center shims, under the suspension brackets, I highly suggest these, they come in .5 and 1mm

Has anyone run less toe in the rear, like 2.5 ?

a little confused here.. but thats not hard to do...

What combination do I need with the Tamiya blocks to make the rear end the same track width, but with 2.5 of rear toe. If I read what your saying, I need to change the forward most rear block ? 1XA ?

thanks...

IIRC, the 3.0 is very similar to a Tamiya 1D, and the 2.0 close to the 1B, and the 0.0 is the same as the 1XB. As a 1.0 bracket use the 1X.

This means you can use the brackets to vary toe, and track width....
the whole range of blocks go (widest to narrowest)
1E, 1D, 1C, 1B, 1A, 1X, 1XA, 1XB, 1XC, 1XD
with 0.5deg toe between each block.

In response to the previous question, for 2.5deg try 1C/0.0 or 3.0/1XA, and for 2deg try 1B/0.0 or 3.0/1X for 2deg.

N.B. Changing the rear block will narrow the rear of the car, changing the front will widen it.

I'm running Carpet/Foam using 2deg of rear toe with 1block in the front of the rear and the 3block in the back. I'm using one of Tamiya blocks up front to match up with the serpent 0deg block.

TimPotter are you using the spool ?

BTW,

Does anyone know when we will be getting the added benefit of Mr. Easton's asphalt knowledge ?

Yes, spool is the way to go 95% of time on our asphalt tracks down here.

Like potter said it was mainly practice on Saturday down at his track I ran my same set up as I posted before. One thing I have tried that I like is run 2* caster blocks with .5mm of anti squat I ran this set up in stock and mod it seemed to work really well.

LilB- When are you visiting Coral Springs track? Havent seen you down here, yet- come by sometime...we run every Sunday morning till about 4-5 PM. Hopefully Tim can make it soo, too...

So far the My S400 has worked great at our track...I plan to go up to MDI in a 2 weeks on Wednesday for testing at that track...its dialed at our track in CS and now I am just testing all kind of things to see what it can do...I hope those suspension blocks come in soon, as well as other option parts and spares...so far 40wt oil and AE 14.5lb silver springs all around has worked nicely, also. Car is more reactive but planted in rear than w/ 30wt and the stock springs. More tesing in a few days if the weather allows...
