Sounds good to me. Should make it easier to tune shocks for % rebound you want and to match all four or both shocks on same axle.
Nice car. Lots of stuff on this car to like thats for sure!

Defiantly a nice ride for sure. Seems like serpent is taking the right path to making the GT8 class more on-road refined. Still love my 3.1 though!!!

Purchased from serpent/DHL vs. DeSoto/FedEx ...costs a little more $$$ no worries on backorder though.

Just just wondering if any truggy chassis from current serpent lineup will match the diff through holes on the SRX8-GT, it will be converted to brushless, and if possible GT2. Updates with any truggy needs to be great!

Hi
Im also getting mine tomorrow. I live in Guatemala and the 1/8 Gt class is getting bigger and bigger. Here the IGT8 has a lot of fans, but I think this kit is going to change their minds.

I know is too soon, but any body has a setup for low grip track? also, what difference make the 4 positions for front and rear diff,

Thanks in advance!!

Default which servos for srx8 or 3.1 cobra

my srx8-gt gets here tomorrow
i am undecided on servos.
money is NOT an issue. i just want the best for what i am doing (100x200 or slightly smaller 10turn road course) i just want the best to be paired with my sanwa m12s to get the most accuracy/response out of it
i was thinking brushless with around 170-200 in torque for steering. i dont know the numbers right off hand on a full size pgs, but maybe one of those? i am not married to any brand
and maybe for throttle -->>
