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

I guess I should've been more direct- are you guys running your bodies more forward or rearward? I don't know the cars inherent tendencies ie. steering characteristics. Especially on a low to medium bite parking lot, up to high bite asphalt conditions.

Your orders we'll processing.

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,

Thank you for choosing RC Market!
Not sure if I got a bad one but I got an extra gear diff for front. The one that came with the kit is perfect but the extra one I got the whole casing is not centered.... After mounting it on the car if you spin it the whole thing is going up and down by around 1mm.... And it leaks like crazy..... Yes, I had makes sure the 4 screws which hold the casing together is tighten evenly and the small gap between the casing is nice and even. Anyone have the same issue?

I have tried..yes the NT1 or the new xray T3 will works...you have to added some shims to take the play out..and you must use the Xray universal dogbone c/t Serpent axles ...
or get the 12X5mm bearing ,if you want to use 100% xray drive axles..

What shims do you have to use? (Part number?) Also, are the serpent and Xray dog bones the same length?

ive had an Xray for a little while, and in no way will i be putting anything Xray on my serpent. infact, apart from a battery retainer and blades, i will not put any other brand of parts on my car. i baught a serpent to get away from Xray. and that way it will stay.
