I'm sure you could order it overseas and get it shipped there, I know lots of USA based shops will ship overseas.

Kschu sir, I am using IB 4600 5 cells on my s400. Got a 3.5 bl Novak velociti motor and my fdr was dialled to 8.9( if am using 6 cells/lipo orion 3600 race spec- fdr would be 10.10). The IB4600 is a lot more better than the 4200 in punch and runtime. For the last club race with 5 mins qualifying, the pack drained almost half as i have noted in my muchmore charger in between heats... Are you running the 4600IB already?

Cool

Thanx Butter, but I just counted and I only have 289! Problem is only half of them are new and in the wrapper. Any help you could spare a poor old middle-aged racer like me is greatly appreciated. By the way I'm working on some new and improved "team" raffle tickets.

As for the wt fluid to use.....that is very track specific. The thinner stuff works better on low bite tracks and if traction gets really high (not very common on aspahlt) use heavier fluid. I would recommend not going heavier than 7-10k and probably 3-5k is a happy medium.

Good luck and hope this helps.

I got my gear diff at the Snowbirds from Hubert and it only has 2 gears, I don't have the other 2 to put back in. But he said that they only run 2 gears in there's and they run mod. I'm pretty sure that Billy only runs 2 in his also. Since I'm stuck with only 2 gears what fluid do you reccomend.

Ryan,

I assume you are running asphalt...if you are and the traction is decent start with 5000. If you are having problems with traction at that pont back down to 3000. The 2 vs. 4 gears certainly frees the diff up so a little thicker than normal is recommended.

Team Molzer Mowery Racing did very well at the 08 carpet nats.

Serpent driver Billy Easton put the S400 in the Show for Mod Sedan, with a high finishing spot of 2nd and a final of 6th.


MMR Drivers Jari and Mitch put the S400 in the big show for 13.5 rubber.


MMR Driver Tony had some less luck in quals but put on a convincing show dominating his main.


Setups will be up on Molzer Mowery's site as soon as everyone gets home and settled.

Drivers Mike, Allen and Conner also did a excellent job in there mains and many congrats for a excellent performance. We will all have to watch out as conner will soon be teaching all of us how to drive.

Congrats to Billy and all Serpent USA drivers that attended the nats. I hope to meet you at either the Reedy race or Asphalt nats.

Kschu bro, if you plan to use 3600 orion lipo race spec, you need to do some machine shop works... Go to a nearby machine shop to drill the motor mount bulkhead of the upper deck so that the rear upper portion of the orion lipo will fit in the battery slot.
I had already done that along with my friend Miguel here in Manila. He is using the orion 3600 lipo race spec without hassle while I am using IB 4600 but I had my orion also 3600 which I am planning to use when the father of Masami will visit us here in Manila this coming March 30...We race last weekend with promising performance of the s400...

So, your considering of using the lipo 3600 also?

Are you using gear diff or the ball diff? Right now were using the ball diff here though some guys were on gear diff already but haven't heard a comment about gear diff so far. My problem is that ball diff easily loosens up after race, in fact my friend Miguel needed to stop the run because his diff loosens up. Can you give us some tips about these?
