No the whole rack is different.
The links to the steering blocks are much longer and the movement should be more traditional to other TC.

Thank you for the picture. It seems to use ARC components. Honestly I won't go this way as my car has a ton of steering, even on-power steering...

Just caught up on the ROAR Nats result and saw that Felix Law and his 4X made the podium in Mod. Nice work!

Haha, no - his motor was the the usual “boring” location toward the rear. ArrowMax shared a Dash post on their FB with pictures. He also placed 2nd in F1 with his F110!!! Respectable results for Serpent and Felix!

This looks interesting; a newly announced battery hold-down kit for the 4x Pro - it’s certainly more attractive than the thought of using tape to hold down the battery, if it works as expected:

I can make the conversation with you lol

As it is Felix car, we can suppose it will be a Serpent conversion. Wait and see...

Looking at the first picture that dawgmeat posted, does anyone want to venture to guess what those pins/screws sticking out the top of the front upper arms might be for?

And if Serpent does release some kind of official battery hold-down add on, I do hope they implement thumbscrews like the Xtreme RC one I posted about above. It makes for simple, tool-less removal.

I believe those pins/screws supposed to hold the body up.
Similar to the floating body mount for Awesomatix.
