Would love to have seen a conversion kit but alas my S120 is on ebay. I wonder what the weight would be with LiPo and loaded electronics etc?

Cheers.

My S120 I'm keeping it with 4Cell NiMh's, Cuz I like the speed it pulls. My Xray XII is biult with RSPro, 10.5 Redline, TQ Booster, And Speedzone 5200mah 50C Saddleback lipo's. Setup with lipo's, just like nimh's and lighter in weight. Dropping volts from 4.2 to 3.8 of coarse we loose speed. But the lipo's is fun to see it's competitive with nimh's.

Default s-120 Link kit are in!

Fyi

Serpent s120 link kits are in stock at Serpentamerica.com

I am going to try to get out and race this weekend but I am still waiting on a speedo.

No fun running stock without a super duper turbo speedo...may have to shake it down with a mod motor!

Check it out.

Local tracks aren't that large and I prefer more smooth powerband, so I suppose 4.5T should be just what I need. And yes, I've also got Blackart bodies, will give them a try too.

I've already ordered the kit, so I seek for spares and optionals and still can't find many of these in stock anywhere. ((

If you haven't seen a 1/12 scale with the latest ESCs, 10.5 is fast enough for mere mortals. Especially on smaller tracks.

My friend tested use 3.5T near 4 cell speed ,
same can run 8 mins+
Blackart body is a best choice ,
support more style with you ,
but price little higher than protoform.
use receiver battery can more fast ,
use booster top speed is lower than use rx battery !

about parts had very small items had stock !
