I have a dog just like the one in the picture, but he is all black and a cross, but he looks all rotti. Get this, his name is Bruce, he is still young and a bit clumsy, although he is a year already.
Well my Dog is almost 9 years old. Had him since he was 2 months old. Brought him back to Taiwan with me so he's probably hating life right now because he doesnt have a back yard to play with anymore

I am sure you take him for a walk everyday though... we had to get a place with a rather large garden, but I suppose 90% of the places here have gardens.

I walk him 3 times a day. But it is a pain to take him out so often but I guess you get used to it. Here's the funny part, I have also 2 Chihuahuas living with me...its my girlfriends dogs haha. Talk about animal farm

Since D has got a new shocktower, i'll try "crashing" into his rear and see if it's tough or not...

Well, sounds like a bit of a farm, but one needs the extra love once in a while... 3x a day, then he isn't unhappy!!!

God morning crashed_1, Welcome to serpent, may I get someone to take your bags... I heard someone talk of you earlier... would you like a drink? (In a posh sounding english accent). Would you like me to clean your car or rebuild the engine... Only joking...

I believe there is still 0.5mm at least for chassis clearance on S710 using S9550 for steering.. otherwise I wont put mine

Yes, you are right.. it will not broke on impact, in fact, the serpent servo horn will I have friend who is using those sanwa WR? (the newest 13kg digital servo) on throttle and has burn 3 times. He set it quite tight I believe, but that's 13kg

Yes D, those shock tower are not 4mm as I mentioned since I tought the original is 3mm and the new one looks like having 1mm thicker.. You should get those new lightweight pulley aluminum adaptor/holder as well since you are quite Serpent freak not to mention for having the refference guide keep in the pocket all the time also

Thumbs up Good service!

Just got the parts from Serpent which where missing from my kit - great and quick service! I had a couple of H11 screws missing aswell as an o-ring for the shocks and a throttle return spring.
The good guys at Serpent sent me 10 H11 screws, four o-rings and two throttle return springs! That's what I call service!

The center one way is to reduce the rotating mass a bit so the motor can spool up easier. I guess the thought process is that the belts running from the center to the diffs will still spin a little while coasting and the center belt will stop spinning with the motor. Then when you get on the throttle, you only have to start spinning the center belt and pulley from zero. You know how those electric guys try to wring every last bit of resistance out of the car.

How did you know that? Jedi mind tricks?

Is there already a lighweight pulley adaptor available on the 710?

Hey guys im from the UK and im looking to buy the set that enables me to fit a Lola body to my 710! I have heard that you can trim stuff down and all but i dont like that at all! I have been told a kit is coming out over here in about a week or something but does anyone know when the ETA is?

Cheers!
