I know the front running a bit faster than the rear on the stock setup. I believe rubber tires need the same speed all around.

wow its been years since i posted on here. anyway, take an xacto knife and pic the seals off carefully, then use some of the spray cleaner "nitro cleaner" i remember taking the grease out when I was bulding my car and putting bearing oil.. well after your are done, just press the purple seal back on. - done !

I miss my 710

Hi Serpent Guru !

I am new in on-road. Just bought Serpent 710 kit and assembled it. Tried to mount LRP 0.12 and found this engine doesn't fit to car, see picture : Tank-bracket, rear, prevents to open carburetor. What is my mistake here ?
Thanks in advance for the help.
P.S. Sure I can start to saw Tank-bracket, but just wondering if I am only one who have this problem ?

You;ll need to rotate the carb a bit. Loosen the screw on the engine that clamps the carb, just below the carb, and rotate the carb about 10 degrees.

You may still need to cut away a little material on the tank bracket depending on the engine though.

Only a few bearings, the 2speed and the front steering blocks.
Possibly some hardware like the pivot balls etc.

Thank you very much for the answer, I did exactly the same, can not only believe Serpent did so bad solution or LRP engine is very specific and other are fit to S710 perfectly.

Thats always been like that. You have rotate the carb on all the onroad cars. Also, you may have to bend the throttle rod too. Its been years since I've worked on a touring car, but I remember working the carb and linkage to clear.
