I raced rubber tire on carpet today and the car was good in box form.
The solid axle sucks for carpet,very pushy.Does anyone know what other oneway will fit in the car.ASC,XRAY,CORALLY,TAMIYAor something else.
One other question does serpent have any in stock?
Thanx in advance.

P.S.can you belive some JACKASS put his foot infront of my car on purpose and hit me off the track.I have never in the 12 years of racing seen or heard of anything like that.What a JACKASS!
Yes I was very mad to say the least.

Brooklyn can get the parts, have them call MMR.

I have heard the Yokomo One Way fits, and the xray will with some shimming.

The Serpent one has been a short supply items still.

Gear diff, We are running 3k oil, once the o rings break in, You can work the o rings to speed it up, or run Serpent oneway lube for a few runs.

The Serpent oils are pretty heavy, assoc and losi oils are much lighter, recommend losi/asso 50 front 40 rear. car will flow very well that way.

Hello Sirs!!! Pls help...

Just want to inquire about the internal gear ratio of my s400, as well as the final drive ratio which is suitable for an asphalt track with lots of turns and a few stretches. I am planning to use a novak 3.5 turns velociti bl motor with the 102 spur that comes with the kit. Im afraid to send my new kit into smoke without the knowledge of ideal gearing.

I am a newbie with this greatly interesting hobby.

Hope to hear from you guys. Tnx a lot...

Rhoby a 21/22t pinion will put you in the ball park from there you can gear up or down to get performane you want and run time.
The S400's internal ratio is 2.18
Check out the gear and roll out chart on gearchart.com
