No, please keep the 4.0 stuff in with the 3.0 thread!

Like 300 pages of old stuff that becomes less applicable over time. Why confuse them. ??

Because there are minor changes between the 3.0 - 4.0, and setups will be basically identical. Fragmenting all the info just makes it harder to find.

So we are name calling now? How mature. I made this point last time the 3.0 and 2.0 thread were started. Proof its a waste of time is the fact that people like you still post in the original S411 thread. It's the same car tweaked slightly. A lot of the experimenting with the car in the early days is still relevant to the new car. If you read the old threads I'd like to think I've made a positive contribution over the years.

I might be a grumpy old man but I'm no grinch.

Definition of a grumpy OLD man is a Grinch. Now grumpy old women.... we'll that’s something else.

AND your point is just that. Organization makes it easy to find and understand answers.

Currently a 3.0 and 4.0 discussion would get confused and unless you constantly refer to which car you have it will become a mess. Threads and discussions will be intertwined and following and weeding out the two will waste time.
I can see the mess on the shock discussion or gears on diff. trying to help a new guy. Why make them suffer thru the old 3.0.

Make a clean and easy break. Hallelujah and Merry Christmas old man….

True. Let bet that those make it that much faster and a larger set-up window.
Mines dialed. Wish I was a better driver. Working on that come back!!

I could survive with this chassis - it's certainly a competition worthy machine with decent cosmetics and a few unique features. Good news for current Serpent owners. I'm VBC man but I can appreciate the evolution an established car.
