Sounds like it could be a business opportunity for you? Open a shop specializing in Serpent in NZ!
I would go out of business very quickly i would keep all the parts for myself! mind you if i can get hold of that ring you lot keep going on about then it may be a different story!

Heh! Everything has a price ... just make an offer and we'll see what we can do about the RING. It'll be quite expensive seeing that the RING originated from NZ ... or at least the movie did!

I don't think its possible because he also mentioned the price for the "NEW" Picco Mega engines...

Davo, that's a pretty big split you're running. Why? What pinions and spurs combo do you currently have on the car? If you have 55T, 56T and 57T 2nd gear spurs, you could try pairing them with either 21T, 22T or 23T if you already have them and see which one gives you the best time around the track.

Did you read my reply below to your post earlier?

"I would see what the other cars are running. Check the brand of the car, their gearing, tire diameter and perhaps maybe their pipe and engine. Calculate their tire rollout and compare it with yours. That would be more than close to accurate method.

But I suspect that since most of the guys at your track run Kyoshos and Mugens, you would probably need to back off on the 2nd gear to something like 22/57 or even 21/55 assuming your engine tuning is correct... Just an educated guess... "

Ah OK ... good to give credit where credit is due. Per-Ola it is then.

Perhaps but I noticed also that you can only buy 190 mm bodyshells... Or has it been always like that previously?

If that's true, they're probably clearing nitro stuff... Perhaps only concentrating on electric car stuff.
