The crankshaft is modded and coated.
Piston/sleeve is modded same as old RS an NS based JP's
And if you have the money: CERAMIC bearings

Found this in the JP FX Forum from daniz24 wich is super modded by JP himself:
Super-modded how? Deeper grooves?

I noticed that there isn't a mid-range needle adjustment .. this is the 3-port right?

A 5-port one is also available at rc-mushroom.

I didn't gamble too much.

Aha! The question is did she gamble? One can do quite a lot and get away with it on one's birthday.

The ports are of a different shape opening (see another pic from daniz24 at the bottom)

Yes it's a 3-port FX (shame it's not mine i've a normal modded FX)

And sorry but the P5T at Mushroom is an old .21 buggy engine

Yup. Read about it and was aware that Serpent was going to come out with it. Unless you really run on a high bite track, I don't see anyone using it.

Did I hear gays right?

Sorry big mistake Drivers

Jose, pretty impressive stuff with ceramic bearings and all ! That's about what I got in my car as well except for the ventilated disc (mine is 9606). I do not have the wheel axles and dogbones as yours and of course, my bearings are just the stock rubber sealed Serpent ones.


I have also the ceramic bearings in the front and rear Diff


Anyway, I would not use the shock seal shim. I believe that only helped when the rubber membrane was off different design. Since the running changes they made to it, I was told that the shim was no longer needed. Just thought I should mention it.


Yes you are right, I had to cut the membranes on the side so they could fit, shock shim crated a bubble inside the cylinder, it works OK as of now, will check without them next time.


This is my Serpent
