well the place I got mine is out of stock that I know of. Serpent America should have stock so have your LHS order you one.. or go through kamikaze hobbies if you dont have a serpent dealer in your area.

SerpentAmerica said it has shipped to Ashford, Kamikaze, & Stormers. Distributor for Serpent in the US. East coast SerpentAmerica Florida, Ashford North eastern US, Stormers Mountain states, Kamikaze West Coast states. Or wait for your LHS to stock them or order product for you. Early next week or Tuesday the for arrival of model & parts, is my guess.

He guys!!
Since I had lot of questions for a low-medium grip setup I got something for ya:

Ok, build in the slider like in the manual. Push the steel bladders all in and fix the slider very close to the front pivots. This will work similar to AE-HB style tweak, as all the torsion goes into the t-bar.

For really low grip use it that way with a thin bar and for anything else with a thick t-bar. Stay with 3 holes and 3000cst in the monoshock.

Give it a try, worked great for me.

Hey guys i know this is a weird question but has anybody ever had a problem with there rear pod returning to flat and level from side to side movement. If i flew the car in my hand s the rear pod never ends up at zero tweak. But doing tweak in the standard way by lifting the front wheels the tweak is perfect, and the car doesnt feel tweaked on the track. It also doesnt always return to the same side it just goes to the closest to centre as it can but never actually ends up back level. Hope this makes sense

Does this also happen with the monoshock disconnected? If you run stiff damping the tweak adjustment blades may not have enough spring force close to center to get the pod level. Other thing to check is free movement of the suspension balls as any excess drag will cause the effect you describe.
