Are you implying plagiarism? If that's the case, why are so many people still asking questions since the articles are already available? You of all people would be the last person I know that would learn from Michael's articles. You would be a genius if you knew about Serpent products without referring to their articles on mytsn.

I am a believer that if you read something and if you're able to explain and make somebody else understand with your own words, then you really understand what you've read. Trying to make other people understand is a both way learning process and learning is something I'll never stop in this hobby (hence my interest in other cars too). This is something which this forum is all about. Not a platform to bash other people up just because they happen to know something more than others do.

The better part about this knowledge gained is application. If you're able to apply this knowledge on other cars as well, then is not a matter of copy paste. I don't think I took any of those from Serpent team drivers.

mop_iko is right. Just take your existing fuel line cut it somewhere where the filter wont be in the way of anything and then connect the cut ends to the filter. Just make sure that the filter is pointing in the right direction. Depending on what filter you got it should tell you in which way the fuel should flow thorugh it. That way in case you take it off you dont accidently turn it around and wash all the dirt back into the engine.

Since you guys talking about FUEL LINE and fuel filter, I would like to know what is the adventage of having a LONG fuel line or a short fuel line...............? BESIDE the legal stuff.....

All I know is, someone is running a LONG fuel line because it can carry alittle more fuel....but my concern is, does that have any trouble with the long fuel line that will cause the fuel PICK UP problem?

Thanks...........

The kit will cost around $250 while the rtr will cost about $300. The major differences between the two is what you said, electronics, shocks and motor. Other than that they are the same. As for a site to buy it from you can try towerhobbies.com, ehobbies.com. Mostly everyone is selling for those prices.

The GPM Ti shafts are'nt much better. They at least fit, but... 3 weekends of racing and they are already stretched and ready to pull apart in the pin areas.
They are priced right in HK. $25 shipped for 4, but a waiste of money. BEWARE!!

I'm not too sure but I remember bbntc3 mentioning about using electric TC3 diffs for the front because they can lock fully into a solid. They could be lighter.
