Same here in the philippines too. No prob with the parts support. Too bad serpent didn't have full support for their drivers at the worlds. Correct me if i'm wrong but i think mugen also has small contingent of factory drivers. The most well represented were kyosho and xray. so they deserve to dominate the a main standings.congrats.

Of all people, you should know why Serpent in Holland does not have stock any more, but overseas they do.....

my LHS has no problem with all 960 n 720 stocks, although some option parts of S400 ain't easy to get (same as the rest of the world)... but we haven't seen a S120 yet... but we don't have a track for 1/12 yet...

hope borderRC won't have problem with their stocks in near future as it is a very big RC company...

Hi Michel,
I believe it has everything to do with them relocating to Asia, so your orders will no longer be available for pick up that you are use to, they will need to ship it to you from ASIA.

Sam
when you say ASIA does it means that they relocated in China or are they still looking in other parts of Asia

It will be a combination of a few Asian countries, namely Taiwan, Hong Kong, and mainland China, just like every other major RC manufacturer.

WC stands for wide contact. Thats the difference. The spurs and pinions are wider for durability.

The WC Clutch now uses a once piece clutch bell with the gears no longer threading into themselves, but onto the clutch bell itself. It also uses a total of 3 bearings now. 2 small 5x8 bearings to replace the 1 big 5x10.

what are the size of these bearings ? i have some 8x5x2.5 coming. i take it you use 2 of these on the outer bearing. or the other option is 8x5x3 , i went for the 2.5 and i got some shims incase.
