Using the Murnan version in mine with the Orion clutch (2weights). This week i'll be trying the 16T pinion to see the difference.

For the record.... I tested the floating rear mount yesterday on my local track (2004 Brazil world's) on a sedan body. It gave a lot of downforce on the long and fast turn we have here. I was able to do the turn a lot faster due to this extra help. From my point of view, it does not make much diference on the slow turns, but it is very good on fast turns. My lap time falls 0.5 secs...

is it possible to convert the 720 rcc shocks to use the internal click to adjust dampening feature?....If not,is Serpent coming out with a conversion....I think that is a great feature,not sure why they got rid of it....

That's not needed anymore because you can just as easy (ok, not just as easy, but very easily) refill the shocks...


I actually think it can be possible to create the same system, but it will be very hard to do it yourself...

We did away with the system, because it proved too difficult for many to get 4 shock exactly the same. We are not considering implementing the system in the RCC shocks.

Shock travel would be severely limited when you would install the old adjustable pistons.

Xray still uses the same system, and i think the sizes are the same....

Yes we still have them available. You'd need only the front shocks though. If I remember correctly the package was for two shocks, with enough plastic parts to make either two fronts or two rears. So you'd need two sets and two pairs of front alu housings.
I do believe the Xray shocks have a different lenght. (somewhere midway between Serpent front and rear).

Default Advice on Set up change

Hi Julius, I tested the 3rd one way and new chassis on Sunday, the result was excellent, the 3rd one-way was unnoticed, it didn’t really affected my driving, braking was as normal as always, the benefit was that the difference between the front and rear tire was minimal, I started with a 1.5mm lower in the front than the rear, after 20 minutes of raising I had a 1.5 to 2mm difference between the rear and front, not any more the difference was lest than 1mm.

The new chassis in my track was better with the carbon plate install, I always had traction roll, not at all with the new chassis the combination of 3rd one way and new chassis was excellent I Think Serpent had a AAA with this options.

I have a technical question in regards to my Set Up, the set up I am showing is the normal set up I am using, our track (Parking lot) has a low to mid traction, with two fast turns and two hair pins, I am having some problem getting read of a excess Over steer in Conner Exit on Throttle:

What will be the area I should change most to correct it with out affecting to much the performance of the car. (This is most to happen went the traction of the track is low)
