I just wish Serpent would post a teaser or something for it rather than having customers leave to other companies because of getting tired of waiting.
Couple 100 bucks I spent on that conversion kit... Billy hasn't said a word about the truggy other than "it's coming." My manager and a few others are super tight lipped about it. X'ing fingers for end of year. Gonna buy the new buggy in a couple weeks when it gets released.

Thinking about selling the old truggy before this new one comes out... Hopefully it's out before next season. Lots of testing going on. Justin/Doug Fales and Billy Easton are running it. Definitely the next kit to come out.

Hey guys, do the 811 buggy and truggy share the same center diff assembly, engine mount, exhaust pipe mount ans steering rack assembly?

Thank you

It appears that I am a lil late to the party...
I got a great deal on one of these old trucks so I figured why not?
Still a good truck even today in the future? lol
What would be a good lipo receiver battery that will fit that is still available?

I'd recommend picking up the SRX8 conversion for it. The conversion helps with steering. The protek 2600 fit my S811, but I use the ArrowMax 2400 with the SRX8 conversion.

I am looking at the rtr version of this truggy, has anyone tried it? And how is the part support since this is a pretty old model?

So was there a solid solution ever figured out for mounting the center diff nice and straight on the srx8 conversion for it and not at some crazy angle like posted a few pages back? Was it
just to use the srx8 complete center diff/assembly? Does dremeling still need to be done? Need this to be known before I start buying the conversion and possible headaches.

Thanks

Buy the M2C conversion if you can. It was the best I ever had my 811 handling. If its not available, PM me. I have done a few and still have the template to drill out all the holes ( straight) and chamfer them. Almost looks factory...But if you are looking to possibly save the head aches, there are a couple SRX8 T's for sale I know of going for $300-500 depending on what it comes with/ use...

Yes... You drill it in the correct location. I still have my template if you want it done. PM me.
Parts needed from the SRX8/T: Radio tray, Center diff mount with brake pads and rotors, Complete center diff and 8 M3x16 screws.


Marked...

Drilled

Chamfered...

Complete.
