Has anyone had any experience with the serpent Hard Servo Saver Spring #803203 ?
Is it any advantages at high speed corners steering for a large open tracks?

Hi DJ,

I would like to know if you run with the overdrive conversion set (http://www.serpent.com/product/803202) ?

Because I always run with this, but I have some understeers...

Regards

I broke two cvds on sunday, when they broke, it was just the cvd that broke and not from a collision. The second one (front) broke in the main with 4-5 minutes left, I kept running and came in third with 3 wheel drive.
They are a weak part (like the front outdrive cups for the onway/solid) and should be upgraded.

I am told that some of the Serpent Team Drivers are using Kyosho CVDs in their 720 cars. In order to do this the ball on the end of the CVD needs to be ground down so that it will fit into the Serpent Dog Bone Driver. I have these CVDs in stock.

I use a standard drive ratio. No over drive.

HEY GIANNI, I SPOKE TO YOU @ THE TRACK ON SUNDAY ABOUT THE CLUTCH SPRING, SO IS 909518 CHUTCH SPRING THE ONE YOU WERE TAKING ABOUT? MY KIT IS THE 720 ’07 AND I THINK IT COMES WITH SER6586 (THE REFERNCE GUIDE SHOWS 6586) AND NOT 909518, THE PROBLEM I’M HAVING IS IF I SET THE GAP TO .7 AND TIGHTENED THE SPRING TO 1.2 IT’S TO TIGHT, WHAT CAN IT BE THE SPRING?
