Florida State Series / US OPEN NATS Warm up Results

Serpent 720 dominated the event at last weekend Florida State Series in KRaceway. The event was also a good chance to prepare the material to be used at this week US Open Nationals.

Serpent placed 8 out of 12 cars in the main, taking also the top honors with the victory and the fastest lap of the event. All drivers where running the new S-720.

Congrats guys. Way to go!!!

Here's how I build my shocks:

1. If it's new, I take off the foam and soak it with oil. Otherwise, the foam will be soaked with oil already and doesn't need to be taken off the plastic retainer.
2. Fill the shocks with oil (I usually fill it up until it touches the threaded part) and let it sit for a little bit to let air bubbles, if any, out.
3. With the foam already soaked with oil, slowly install the plastic retainer and turn it in 1 and a half turns.
4. Push down the shaft slowly to let excess oil out. Once the shaft is down, continue tightening the plastic retainer.

Hope this helps.......
