Because Serpent S400 uses 35T pulleys...If you run the 36T pulley in the rear you'll have underdrive, so you'll have to change to 36T front pulley also and see if they dont rub on the bulheads...your internal ratio will change also

You are telling me could not put 36T in F & R sides together?
Isn't it also there's no spool to fit it?
Why could not use Team bomber's one:

Well, maybe better with Yokomo genuine one, even it's little heavier but smoother.

Hi browsing through the forum I am seeing posts like use a Corally thingie for this, an HPI thingie for that, a Schumacher wotsits for this etc. Are Serpent a chassis supplier who use other manaufacturer's parts (like Lotus use to be) which all sound a bit PIA. Sorry if this sounds neanderthal but I am used to Xray where if something brakes you email the Xray shop and any part arrives in a couple of days. I want to race not spend time trying to work out how to replace a part; and the Serpent looks a real interesting car for next year.

Not at all

Just with all cars being very similar on most cars you can interchange parts

The Top sythe is the only car I know that uses parts from other cars and there own chassis parts
