Great run Ken. All of the s120's this weekend looked great. Support was the best, Thanks Paul.

Ran the Chicky Chassi'd S-120 again yesterday at the Big Rug in Indy. And all I can say is WOW. We had a solid field A Main regional level guys and the car was right On-Point. Flirted around near the top till the 3rd Q when I hit on the tire choice and TQ'd by nearly a full lap, and lead the Main buzzer to buzzer. This car is definitely faster and easier to drive than and of my previous rides.

Ken your car looked great! Nice run, I can definitely see a Serpent in my future after I build some time up in 12th scale. I like all my stuff to be of the same brand. Having an s811 and probably the truggy next spring, the 120 will fit in nicely

The bumper is an R5. The holes don't line up exactly but you can stretch the foam. Serpent is coming out with a direct fit one soon.

The orange parts are just redone stock parts. When I sent the pod plates for anodizing I had some other parts done.
