If you're going to get a RRR, the WCE is the best choice. The order of the cars are

1. RRR - Is being replaced by the EVO
2. RRR EVO - This is the new car
3. RRR WCE - Top of line for the RRR

There is no EVO update for the WCE.

He can buy the conversion and work around his WCE parts. The stand up servo might be a better option since it eliminates the linkages.

He can then add the new shock tower/bulkhead for the additional 3 mounting positions for the rear roll center and the quick change mainshaft. Don't quote me for sure, but there are a few changes worth purchasing the conversion. Then he can have a fake WCE Evo.

YOU ARE EXACTLY correct on your 1,2,3 the WCE will be the better car than the EVO, the WCE still has a lower center of Gravity and will make a big difference in handling specially on high bite tracks.

It's amazing how many people state the the Serpent 710 is hard to set-up, either you (the people that say this) need to buy the XXX Main chassis set-up guide or just plain and simple don't have a clue as to how to set-up a car or tie your shoe laces.

I bought a Serpent 710r late last season, almost noone in my racing scene (Toronto, Canada) drives one so I knew I had my work cut out for me. The first race a ran with the car yes I got beat out of the A main by a ready to run NTC3(ouch!) however the driver of the NTC3 was a very good driver just having fun to do a review on the chassis for his website...LOL


I took the knowledge I gained from that race which was Push, Push, Push, Push, TRACTION ROLL??????? I was confused, however I did research (myTSN) got good insight for set-ups and asked the one driver in my race scene about his set-up.

I rebuilt the car according to different set-ups and voila!! I won the next race, 2nd the next, and so on. The car has ben a dream since on about a few hours research. It's not impossible to set-up, or a hit or miss, like some state, the chassis applies to the same principles and theories as every other chassis if not prooves them true.

I say all this because the original question by the original poster was which chassis should I buy. It really should have been an answer closer to what does your LHS stock parts for the most or easiest for you to get because all of the "top3" Kyosho, Mugen and Serpent are so very similar. Why didnt anyone bring up the Mongoose / G4? the NTC3? even the Tamiya MK2! which really is an amazing chassis!

You also have to take into consideration what type of track is he running at, the Toledo track? Parking lot? something inbetween? the Kyosho (shaft) chassis and NTC3 and Tamiya really excel in parking lot / smaller tracks, whilst the Belt driven chassis do much better on prepared ashphalt or larger tracks.

My opinion isnt biast nor do I have a definitive answer for which chassis to get, as all of them are very similar, however the new Mugen MTX4 I would not recomend for smaller tighter tracks as its low-end gearing is limited and local racers at my track (www.fastcats.ca) are having serious low-end acceleration problems due to lack of pinion and gearing sizes (please no techy talk on clutch gap these guys know what there doing!).

Anywhoo for everyone trying to decide on a car, theres no real answer, pick which one you think looks the best! LOL!

Serpent 720 Spyshots!!!

http://www.hodamotorsport.net/forums...read.php?t=147

They got rid of the DRS...LOL!!! Did any serpent 710 drivers ever use this??? It really was a wortless tuning option but fun to say that it was your secret!!! LOL....OH NO THE TRUTH IS OUT!!!!
