If you guys are using the 3.5/3.5 brackets up front, doesn't that make the overall width over 190mm. I seem to recall that using 2.0/2.0 with camber at 1 degree makes the front of the car exactly 190mm.

Bottom line, is going that wide legal?

I believe they also used the -0.75 wheel hexes.
So then the width of the care is just good enough.

You will probably get negative rebound doing it that way. I've tried Johnny's method but it is quite difficult to do without trapping air in the shock. Try the way I described. There are so many ways really just try them all and decide which is right for you.

Yeah and to be honest the old SS serpent shocks were not the easiest to get zero rebound (positive or negative!). The new shock are MUCH better and easier to build.

My method should expel any excessive oil or air in the system before the cap is put on, and this can be verified if your bladder is opec, once the piston is brought to the top and the ball wrench pressure is removed. This is like doing a normal bleed with the top caps on, but not tight and the piston brought to the top of the 3mm spacer. Be wary though that the top cap is a 2 part procedure, the plastic part is put on and located correctly into the bladder, then the screw cap is installed, I like to keep slight pressure on the plastic part as the screw cap is installed. with the new bladders, or using the Tamiya or Yokomo bladders this works well for me, if your using the old Serpent bladders with the square edge shoulder, there is no easy way to build.

I would agree with Dan though, try them all out and pick the one that works best for you, there a lot of them out there.

I have been cutting a few Serpent 411 top decks for a few locals. If anyone wants one, I have two designs, and a few different thicknesses. Sorry for the terrible pic, its all I have right now. PM or email me at [email protected] Thanks!

Default top decks

i have heard of the 3 different top decks...has anyone experimented yet with any of the others? i am told the 1.75mm is the stock TC deck to have. Any opinions out there? if i only have the 2.0mm top deck...i have also heard you can remove some screws to increase flex? which screws?

I am pretty sure standard top deck that comes with ERYX 4.0 is the best choice for both carpet and asphalt. For carpet you might need to shim front part 0.1mm to change the flex.
