Where can I get information about rollouts for stock foam carpet racing? I know how to calculate it, I just dont know what to shhot for. Maybe a range as I know different tracks require different rollouts.

Default Ceramic balls for the diff/trust bearing?

I wanted to know where I can get ceramic trust bearing? Can I use the Corrally one in a 05 diff?

They fit directly on and are the smoothest best working shocks I have ever seen. It took me exactly 4mins to fill with oil and assemble 4 shocks with no air bubbles and exactly the same rebound. They are just awesome."
I have been using the serpent shocks for 3 weeks now and the car is awesome....! Just to confirm you will need 2 SETS OF REARS to be able to use on the XRAY cars.

Any questions about these shocks just ask!

Are you usingthe Serpent or Xray ball ends?
How are you securing the shocks to the car?
Whave you tried running the Serpent shocks with foam tires? Any rubbing? Any problems getting to ride-height?

The xray and serpent ball ends are exactly the same part. I have used both with no problems. Just use the screws etc exactly as if you are securing xray ones ... they fit on perfectly. I have not tried with Foam tires as we don't run them over here. I would say you shouldn't have any problems though!

Are you still able to use the adjustable pistons with the new Serpent shocks? Or are you limited to just the fixed pistons? Thanks.

I believe the statements that these shocks are very smooth but I'm struggling with the price/performance ratio. At $100 per set do they improve the handling of the car that much? I'd be curious to see if anyone's lap times get better using these shocks over the standard ones or even the Tamiya ones at half the price. Let's see some tangible data.

Guys,

There is nothing wrong with the stock shocks. If you take care of them , perform regular maint. and set them up right there is no need to go and spend more money on other brand of shocks. I ran my stock plastic shocks for 3 months and did not have a leak, the oil was still very clear and acting smooth.

Why all this discussion on changing things, just drive it.

The factory guys run the stock plastic shocks at the nationals, Reedy Race and everywhere, so there is nothing wrong with the stock shocks.

I agree. My FK05 worked very well with the stock shocks this past weekend. I don't pretend to know something that the factory guy's don't, I just like to tinker. Come to think of it, that's why I replaced the stock chassis with the BMI kit and why I have a set of those Serpent shocks.
