OK! Between the markings on the blocks and the ones on the ride height adjusters, Serpent must be trying to blind us Old Farts.

the ride height adjuster markings needed some help, i had a silver metallic pen marker, and wiped the area with an inked cloth to highlight the background. its easier to read but still a challenge.
i ended up just writing the number on the back side with the silver pen. (20 25 etc)

do you guys have a picture of the car with a Speed Passion V3.0 motor on it? i just want to get an idea of how to run the wires through it.

does the 3 motor wires affect handling of the car? coz it does add a slight return spring action with the center shock.

Default New to me S120L

I just recieved a S120l and am seeking advice on setup, modification, and building of the stock chassis car.
Track we run on is low to mid grip, and I am a novice driver.

Thanks in advance for your tips,
Scott

Hey Scott, Here's what I've been running:
Front springs-.o5o, 22# that come in the kit.
Green #3 shurlube on the kingpins.
Just take the free-play out of the springs, don't preload them.
Front set wide.
Center shock- 40wt oil with 2 hole piston, 16# spring, one higher than stock.
Side spring- 4.5#, the softest ones, just touching the links.
Side shock- 80wt oil with 3 hole piston.
Front shock mount 2ND from top.
4.5mm clearance front, middle, 4.0mm rear of pod
Orange rear tires, Lilac fronts. AMR body with small rear spoiler.
You may have to sand the plastic center ball pivot to remove any excess up and down play, don't get it too tight though, leave a very small amount of play.
Mark Payne talks about this in his blog, which I enjoy:

Tell me how it goes and I hope we see you next Sunday.

We don't run asphalt, sorry. If I was going to, I would start with my set up above, but Pink rears, purple fronts, and I would leave them a little bigger, since asphalt usually has less grip. You may need to raise the ride height depending on how smooth your track is. I would also try a softer center spring and a harder front spring with the caster spacers both in front, if I needed more rear traction. Hope this helps.

I had a run with the S120 Link today and all i can say is what a car so easy to setup and enjoyed every minute with it running on asphalt on a GP track and still had a blast had bucket loads of steering and a tone of rear grip i just with the battery's lasted longer lol can't wait to run the car again .
