The new chassis looks and feels very nice - I'll post some pictures of the finished car tonight. Hopefully I can test my car tomorrow

Pyramid,

Checking my completed car with the Futaba 113ip rx, it looks to be just about level with the bottom of the chassis. I'm going to try to remove a little material from the rx side protector, in order to be able to mount it a little higher.

Cheers, Mark.

Some alternative :
- Dont use (802150) Receiver Bracket, double-tape the PCM rcv on the (802151) Receiver cover. Put 2 (1 on each side) O-ring between deck and rcv cover.
- Make some L shaped spill protector from thick lexan to protect the top of rcv. Tomorrow, I will post the picture.

Its simple, its clean, its Serpent 710....

Other than that , you should do Pyramid's mod on DTS ver4.

Look forward to seeing the pics, Goldfinger - I'm looking for an alternative way to mount the Rx, as I can't pack my Rx unit in a balloon so easily with the current system. And access to the Rx is very restricted. Unless I use my LRP Rx unit.....hmm.

Hi Uncle Sow, im feeling old now..

I just realize that Pyramid forgot to post the receiver bracket picture ??!!
In ver 5, we gain 2mm lowered deck thats why we have some problem with receiver cover.
What he did was milled out the top section of the bracket, almost 1.5mm higher(when mounted). And 1mm cut on both notch at receiver cover.

While mines broke and the workshop is busy, im trying out another solution. Less sophisticated but works fine.

I'll send you Uncle Sow's micro-scope with nightvision built in.
I had to get it upgraded after this German Nationals Round 2.

Default One-way and rubber tires..

Hy guys ... just got my Serpent 710 tody ;-) It came of course, with a One-Way in front. Where i race, the rules only allow rubber tires, so, i want to ask, is there anything differente ?? Because, as far as i know, rubber don't give as much grip as foam, so a one-way diff won't be that good, and i can't use overdrive in rubber tires also.. because they're all the same size..
Any thought please !?!?!?!
TY

Rodrigo, I can't comment so much on Rubber tyres, as we only use them here when its wet, but I would suggest that you get the front diff - the car goes really well with the diff. I use the diff 90% of the time.

Cheers, Mark.
