Looks really nice.

One thing: I can say that mounting the transponder sideways is not a good thing. I have seen in more than one occasion that there can be problems with it counting. I believe you that yours counts. I have seen too many times sideways mounted transponders that end up having issues. They are less reliable like that.

I am working on a battery plate that holds the transponder face down & open If I make it to the shop today I will take some photos & poast them. With that battery plate the shoter lipo-bettry is used.

Very nice work and well thought out and laid out. I have run the lipo receiver for an entire year and have been quite happy. I like the looks of the voltage regulator that you are using. Have you run it before for any length of time? I failed two regulators until I learned that I could not anchor it to the chassis but had to let it kind of float in the same relative location you have it in. I would dearly love to run the lay down throttle servo, but I had a horrible experience with it on my first outing with the car. I had gone to Mexico City to a race at one of the worlds premier facilities called Pegaso near Tolouca Mexico. I had a bunch of spare parts as with me as they are scarce down there. My second time out on the track I got T-Boned (not all that hard) and it broke the laydown throttle servo loose and put it into the fuel tank breaking the tank into about 6 pieces... Guess what part I did not have?? Well I tried everthing to fix or fit a tank in it, but in the end, I ended up borrowing a friends MRX4 to salvage a couple days of racing on a great trip. Needless to say I am "gun shy" of the laydown throttle servo. I am sure you car will perform very nicely with all your beautiful work on it.

With all the Serpent mod....did you forget to send your resume to Serpent USA or even HQ @ Netherland...? Have you talk to CEO Salven yet...? Happy new year and keep up the good work....that 200mm is very interesting. I made some mod awhile back for the Impulse by using the Impact adaptor...back then, 235mm foams are cheaper then 200mm. But not now...they are like 2X the price and rarely can them around.
