Default Serpent 811 Cobra Buggy 2.1

I thought I would start a new thread about this car so we can share setups and questions about the new 2.0!

Paul, do you Know if we can preorder the 2.0 through serpent America? I notice on your set with the new diff gears you are running 9 15 6? Does it feel like 5 7 3 with the old gears?

swaybars, springs, the complete rear end except the transmission and suspension blocks, body, and some little refinements here and there.

So what parts come with the upgrade kit. I know a lot of people are going to ask so you might want to put it in you first post so people can just refer to that. Do you know if they are going to do the same upgrades for the truggy?
