kyoshosan and suntok2 ~ Sorry guys, can't help you with the part numbers. I checked out the Serpent site, but I can't determine what you need to put together your own "upgrade kit".

Okay Team Serpent, we need your help!

Suntok and kypshosan, from what I remember, the difference are the following :-

- just for looks, Serpent have anodised the chassis black.
- Servo Saver with adjustable Ackerman
- LeMans type bumper as an added extra


Everything else the same.

Here are the descriptions of the what's included in the '07 kit (KB), but the lists I've seen do not have any part numbers and I'm not going to take a stab and guessing what the correct part numbers are:

* Front CVD shafts
* Extra one way front shaft with lock set
* Nylon adjustable pivot ball nuts
* Upgraded fuel tank with o-ring sealed AFL lid
* Servo saver with adjustable Ackerman
* New hard plastic suspension parts
* New black anodized chassis plate

So who all uses the overdrive kit and can could sombody tell me the pros and cons. Also if you do use it, do you use it with the 3rd one-way.

Sumarry explanation from the designer,

The 3rd oneway frees up the drive train, especially off throttle. It will also make the car rolls more (but you could use drag brake to adjust the roll).
The most advatage is on longer runs when the rear tires tend to get smaller, you have less problem with an unsettled rear end while turning into a corner. It`s not really a tool to get faster laptimes (on some tracks it will be) but more consistence and better fuel mileage for sure.

The 18t pulley will helps on tire wear issues between front and rear in longer runs. The advantage is, that the front tires wears harder than before. So the difference (in wear) front rear is more or less the same. It also helps against traction rolling. It's not a very big step, but you can feel the difference.

I have to think guys are still experimenting with the 3rd oneway and overdirve kit. There hasn't been alot of discussion on it yet. I just received both kits,haven't had good enough weather to test yet.

Does it come along with front CVD spring steel?

The Airtronics Championship has been completed at Revelation Raceway, it was the last race of the year for our track is closing. But we finished it with a bang! Walter was also using the new OFNA JL Racing .12. Amazing fast!

Pos Car Laps time name
1 1 148 40:10.80 JEFFREY LIN (Ofna GPX4/JLR Reddot.12)
2 2 146 40:02.96 WALTER DIAZ (Serpent 720/JLR Reddot .12)
3 9 146 40:13.18 CHRIS VELEZ (Mugen MTX4/Novarossi Plus 12-3CT)
4 8 145 40:08.92 DARIN ISHITANI (Mugen MTX4/Ninja .12)
5 0 145 40:11.26 PETER CHHU (Mugen MTX4/JLR Reddot .12)
6 7 143 40:14.19 MARCO ACOSTA (Mugen MTX4/JLR Reddot .12)
7 6 136 40:08.43 ROBBIE COLLINS (Mugen MTX4/Ninja .12)
8 3 106 35:31.83 MIKE STRACK (Mugen MTX4/Ninja .12)
9 5 104 30:17.67 ALEX NAVARRETE (Mugen MTX4/JLR Reddot .12)
10 4 70 21:55.98 PEPE VELEZ (Mugen MTX4/Novarossi Plus 12-3SCT)

Walter did an excellent job battling with Darin Ishitani for numerous laps back and forth and back and forth but prevailed with excellent pit strategy and consistent laps! Although Walter could've possibly finished on the same lap as Jefferey, but the car flamed out twice for some odd reason. The motor went rich and decided to flame out at the 4:40 mark. But with quick pitwork we were able to put him in the #2 spot. Great job Walter!
