The new Xray car will be a sport version of the current car. It is due to come out next month, however, it is still unknown when the car will be available in the US.

NFE :: I am glad you are happy with it, I knew you would be. I stopped by Lightspeed today and asked Mark to build a Yokomo 10x2 and I will have it before the next race.

Does anyone remember the spring rates of the old serpent springs? I got t-boned this weekend and broke a shock. Considering converting my T1 to EVO shocks. Already have the ultra tune tower and front carpet tower.

On titanium screws. Been using them for years in my bicycles. Just use the silver anit-sieze for titanium on the screws.

Try going to the Serpent website and ask them. Or go the nitro on-road forum and look for the Serpent 705 thread.

Good luck cause I still don't think that you'll make 5 minutes at T&T with it.. I know a 12 dbl wont make it either.

If it doesn't I will step down a turn at a time a round. It surprised me that I came short like I did. Just have to work at it.

The Serpent springs are the same rate as the three softest Xray springs.

Orange Serpent = Yellow Xray (1.4D, 14lb)
White Serpent = White Xray (1.5D, 17.5lb)
Yellow Serpent = Blue Xray (1.6D, 22.5lb)

Checked this out so would know which springs to use as I was happy with my Shock setup from the T1, White on the rear and Blue on the front is what I use.

Thumbs up

Thanks University_Dave!!! I use the orange and white on mine. Was wanting to try the yellow front and white rear on my T1 as we have gone to flat carpet from a banked track. Not knowing the rate I was unsure. Now I know which way to go when I get the new shocks. Thanks again

Come on boys dont want to fall onto the second page.

So it seems there will be a new lower level car being released early 2003, anyone heard of any changes to the top of the line car?

The new car will mostly be a composite material. Not woven graphite. It's mainly for the economic racer who still wants to drive a high performance car.

Agree it is a great idea, i just hope they maintain all of the current functions of the evo2, and just replace the Graphite parts with plastic.

Personally i will already put my name down for one of those plastic body post braces. But i do love the look of graphite
