Btw....when comparing the main chassis to my TC6, is was about 8mm shorter. Anyone else do any comparisons in that dept.?
Alot of people have mentioned it is quite short.... I was thinking of testing it longer and longer as it has a fair bit of adjustment but right now I have the rear at full length to give a bit more weight over the front.

I really wanted to try front gear diff. Ordered gear diff from RcMarket and here is retrurn email. Serpent says there is no revision to diff case. RcMarket says different:

Dear Sir,

Your orders we'll processing.

you ordered ( SERPENT 401383 GEAR DIFF SET ) this item will delay release.
because Manufacturer they need change (this item the " case ") ,
so, their shipment will delay arrive.


When we receive this item, we'll send orders to you, OK ?


Best Regards,

Did we ever figure out what parts will support the S400 from the S411? Can I use arms and C hubs and steering knuckles? How about Belts and CVD's?

Or can I get parts for the S400 again?

I have both cars and the s411 takes a smaller outer bearing on the steering knuckles and cvd. now if you can put the hole arm, c hub, and all on it i haven'ttried it yet, but to me it look like it fits.

So since these cars are a bit shorter, how are you guys mounting your bodies?

JayBee,

My LW LTC-R mounted just fine, Kody actually did it and it went smooth as buttahh. I actually have removed 1mm shim from behind the front arm, moving the arm towards the motor (shorter) and I moved 2mm of shims in front of the rear arm, thus moving the rear arms away from the motor.

My car is really good on its first and only run (dang rain out last week).

Steve
