Default info on the new AFL cap seal

Hi guys,
Regarding the new AFL cap seal, from what i understand old tank can be use, just need to measure for compatibility but does it need a new type cap or just with a o-ring type cap or the old foam type cap??
thanks

Anybody having problem with new 23 mm spring set being too short on the rear shocks? I have the spring collars all the way down to get the ride height with 62mm rear tires. As the rear tires wear, I have no more adjustment.

The 23mm springs are for the front only
you need the 27mm springs for the rear

It is correct the 27mm will solve that problem, but I did the same as RoyU, because if you read the information from Serpent it says that the 23mm are to be used for 1/10 in front and rear, I had to order then the 27mm to correct this problem.


“Serpent has released 2 sets of new series shock springs, which are suitable for use with all current and previous Serpent shock absorbers. Sold in sets of 5 pairs of springs, 1 set contains 23mm length springs, 1mm longer than the older version, for the front of 1/8th scale chassis’ and both the front and rear of 1/10th scale chassis’, while the 2nd set contains 27mm springs for the use on the rear of 1/8th scale chassis’. Featuring a new colour rating these new series of springs are of a better quality, coming with ground flat ends, and as they no longer have a colour coating they function more accurately. The spring’s hardness is now identified by the coloured paint on the springs tip.”

These work great for that situation.

I thought about the higher cups, but I think I'll still run out adjustment.

Anyway, I have the long spring set on order

The 08' 720 kits are now available, it comes with a lot of goodies and the price is low considering the option parts that came with it.
