The shoes last the entire season for me. I run about 1 time a month on average, sometimes two.

With high traction I do not use the front sway bar. Good luck to all and please ask if you have any questions.

Hey DJ... how much does your car weigh in??? And which stiffener is that? the exhaust or the spur gear one?

the exaust stiffner. cut out where it connects to the x-brace. if you cut the spur stiffner it causes to much flex on that side which leads to striped gears

My cars weights about 1735 with light weight Twister Tires. The exhaust stiffener and cut the upper screw area on the graphite. Also my basic set up is on the serpent site now. I received and email from them saying it was up. Just go to serpent racing and look for set ups.

Hey guys just wondering if anyone can let me know what the serpent web address is. Someone has told me that you guys have a good chart on how to calculate your roll out, FDR(final drive ratio) etc. Any help would be great, thanks

Im still using the very first fuel tank. I know the AFL replacement lid came out and the complete tank as well. But also some people had problems with it at time and i was advised to keep mines. I still want to upgrade. But did serpent fix the problem and revise the design? What do u guys use?

There was never a problem with the 720 Fuel tank, not unless the seal under the cap got worn out, but you can buy the original replacement seal in a pack of 5 for about $5.00 or $6.00.

The newest tank is really good. Some people did have problems with the orange seal for the tanks, but now the seal is a black one and it is different. Works great.
