I use a tire truer & true the inside and outside of front/rear tires. Usually to 47 and run them till they are down to 45 before replacement. But this really will depend on what rollout you need for your track.

Why not use CRC belleville washers? All of the 1/12 scale axle parts are pretty much interchangeable. I use an IRS axle on mine.

The CRC ones will work, but they're not a best fit. You can get the Serpent ones in the diff rebuild kit but you will pay 10 bucks for them most places. I believe Serpent has discontinued these, so if you find some snap them up.

Serpent finally got back w/ me and informed me "This item 411166 has been replaced by 411024" 411024 are just washers. Not sure how you would adjust the diff w/ those instead of spring washer?

That can not be right. 411166 is the correct part and as it is used in all serpent pan cars it can not be a discontinued item.

Hi, new to S120 and have a couple of questions...

Converting S120L to S120LT is possible right?

And getting the L to LTX is better off just getting the LTX.

I can't seem to find information on the difference from L to LT to LTX

L = battery in the rear/side to side position, center damper shock.

LT = Battery front to back, Tubes for dampening, longer wheelbase

LTX - Battery front to back, tubes for dampening, longer wheelbase, rear pivot moved forward and thinner chassis for more traction.

It is with the conversion kit; the conversion kit however is not 100% complete. You also need the S120LT pivot. The pivot from the LT/LTX is also narrower mounting than the S120L.

I have not looked up the part number but I just ran into this myself doing the conversion from the 120L to the LT. I ended up using a pivot from an Associated 12R5.2.

I just got my S120LT, I have came into a problem. The problem is that the rear pod bottom plate sits lower than the main chassis by about .5 mm. The instructions dont show any shims to put under the Pivot ball assembly on the main chassis side, is their anything I can do besides shaving the pivot ball down or ading shims to get it to be flat even with the main chasis?

Really, it won't affect anything? I am just use to the chassis being evenly flat all the way around.
