Default Serpent S400

I need some help with this bad boy. Does anyone know where I can get a new 2.5mm chassis? Is this an obsolete chassis? I've been having a hard time getting parts that are in stock. Any help much appreciated, gracias, etc.

There is a huge thread dedicated to this car and yes everyone is having trouble finding parts. There is an issue with parts flow but there are also links to shops that have parts and parts from other cars that will fit. Check out the Serpent S400 thread.

About your other question the car is not obsolete. It is very capable as long as um,,,, yeah as long as you can find parts. Run it in VTA or something with less breakage and get something like an X-Ray or a Photon for your hotter laps.

The car is discontinued but I wouldn't call it obsolete. I'm in the process of converting a lot of my expendable parts to stuff that is still available, like some Tamiya and Xray parts.

Parts have been next to non-existent for almost a year since I bought my kit. I seriously doubt they are going to start supporting the car again at this point.
