Wow did I read that wrong!!! reading comprehension is a 0.0


I bought the Tekno RC clutch and spring hardware kit to see if it worked with the Serpent clutch shoes etc.

it did, springs work too as well as the clutch screw, yet it is narrower head on the pin than the Serpent

I assume the Tekno clutch shoes should work as well.

In case you still looking for Serpent shoes. AbsoluteHobbyz has them in stock

How often are you guys changing clutch bells and spurs? Mine seems a lot looser than I usually set other cars

To tighten up the mesh you want to mount the motor mounts to the chassis and then put the motor on from the top. Keep the screws a little loose and twist the clutch bell towards the spur gear and tighten it down. This is the way you can tweak the mesh a little.

Default Serpent SRX8 EVO.

Hi guys.
I'm thinking about this buggy and I've wanted to know the pros and cons.
What should I be aware of.
Hop ups?
Anything that you feel is a good thing to know, before I get one.

Hit me.

There is a thread on the SRX8 with lots of info.

Serpent SRX-8 Nitro buggy


But the car is very durable. it all really depends on the driver. Just as with any other car.

Hop-ups? Do you need them? No. The EVO has most of the latest parts already as well. Maybe extra suspension arms, sway bars, springs, shock pistons.
Other than that, replace parts as they break or get worn out, example bearings.
J.Whiting and MikeMikeMike like this.
