I know what you mean, I have been waiting for a shipment from Tower for a month, and I am waiting for RC-Mushroom to ship, they said yesterday, but no confirmation... I want them to ship NOW cos the dollar is strengthening against our rand and it means I pay more...

Hmmm, not sure about that. Although there wasn't a race on yesterday, I went to practise ayway and was surprised to see this blonde lady driving.

Needless to say, she promptly caught me up within 2 laps and smoked past me. I think she'll do a better job at showing you folks how its done. She was definitely using a 1-way and I think that's the best way to go at AMCC.

Could have been Sam Barnard, if that's the case no shame she races at the top level in this country.

I Agree, FINALLY... It should take about 2 weeks to get here, as I took the fastest method... I have got the KO highspeed servo, not the one that will lift a buss. I have another 3 orders that are on the way, I am still waiting for the one at RCCARINTERNATIONAL to ship... a month later. and I am waiting for my order from Tower to arrive, already shipped. I am about to place two more orders, one for paints and another for bodies... I CANT WAIT!!! I saw a really cool trick on your body that I like, the airbrush shadow effect.

What is the metallic blue colour that you used on Dees body, It looks really sweet?

Is that the lady that drove a NTC3 with the dad as her mechanic? I thought she was featured last year in one of your UK magazines. Can't remember which one.

Default Polished Conical Inline Adaptor M12 (2175)

I don't know if any of you guys noticed but as a result of staring at mytsn for too long , I noticed that Serpent came out with a few new goodies.

Particularly of interest is the polished conical manifold for use with .12 engines. Comes with rubber exhaust seal and large mounting spring. Can be combined with the #2171 or #2173 NovaMega pipes or other Inline pipes from different brands too.

Newly available from NovaMega is this polished manifold. Due to its conical shape, getting larger from the engine to the pipe, the engines performance is significantly improved in the middle range. A big step forward in engine performance and pipe technology.

Suitable for all .12 engines when used with an inline main pipe.


Glenn Cauley also posted a tip on mytsn on how to install that manifold on the 710. Check it out.

Default Shock tower front Lola carbon Serpent 710 (802202)

Secondly, the 2.5 mm carbon front shock tower for use on the Serpent 710 with a Lola shell.

Designed to allow the mounting of a Lola or GTP body to your 710, Serpent is pleased to introduce this new front shock tower. Made from 2.5mm carbon fibre this very strong but light item has a lower profile than the standard touring car version that it will replace.

The tower has 2 shock absorber mounting points to aid fine-tuning of the cars handling to different track conditions.

Default Fuel filter special (1530)

Lastly, Serpent's own aluminum external fuel filter. Looks a lot like the one from Tornado.

This turned aluminium fuel filter from Serpent is an added insurance for all Gas racers. Although the cars fuel tank contains a filter to get rid of contaminants, this inline filter provides that extra assurance that all dirt has been taken from the fuel before entering the carburettor. This is thanks to the very fine metal gauze within the filters chamber that will trap even the smallest dirt particles. The benefit is obvious, reducing tuning difficulties and improving the life of your engine.

Works on all Gas powered cars.
