There is no travel limitation to the cvd's. it is the dog bones if you narrow the track width too much. I ran cvd's at the 301 and it was fine. some tracks are harder than others on the cvd's.

What was your track width front and rear at 301?

Oh' I forgot to talk about the center one-way. The center one way is made to give you a bit more corner speed on some tracks. It is mainly used with the spool to add a little corner speed. It gives you less braking with the mid oneway but it has front braking. If you use a front one-way you have almost no braking. Try the center one-way with the front spool. In electric we used to use double one-ways o get the utlimate corner speed. No the cars are much better so they do not need them.

dj apolaro, did you try a front diff at 301? If so how did you like it? We have the regionals coming up in a few weeks and I'm trying to get the car up to speed as soon as possible. The more things I can rule out the more time I can have to test other things....

I did not, but Paolo did. Maybe he can give his opinion. He did end up running the solid.

Chassis 4mm 720 LCG (#803199)
http://www.serpent.com/product/803199

Quote:

New for the Serpent 720 is this new optional chassis plate which has been heavily milled on the topside to enable the whole car to sit lower, allowing for a lower centre of gravity while, through the addition of extra holes, the chassis plate is now extremely light. This chassis will be perfect for those racers looking for that extra cornering advantage in higher grip conditions and to allow your chassis to be made stiffer, the front of the chassis has space to mount the optional carbon stiffener plate, which will be sold separately.

If you have good set up and are happy with the handling of the car with the stock chassis, then I would not get the lcg chassis. It will not make that much of a difference.

So in short w/the 3rd oneway has no rear braking or am I wrong?

Yes you are wrong, You still have brakes on the rear wheels even with the
3rd one way.
