I'm surprised that Serpent only has one approved body.
I guess it's no use to try out that Serpent Volvo body then.

ANDY'S STRATUS SEDAN GT (200mm)
ANDY'S BTCC ACCORD SEDAN GT(200mm)
BBR MAZDA MILLENIA TC (200mm)
FREWER DODGE STRATUS (200mm)
FREWER BMW E46 (200mm)
GENERAL SILICONES VISION S-BODY (200mm)
HPI AUDI A4 (200mm)
HPI ALFA ROMEO 156 (200mm)
HPI DODGE STRATUS AERO II
LOSI ALFA ROMEO 156 (200mm)
PROTOFORM DODGE STRATUS (200mm)
PROTOFORM VAUXALL VECTRA
PROTOFORM VOLVO S-60 SEDAN (200mm)
PROTOFORM ALFA ROMEO SEDAN (200mm)
PROTOFORM HONDA ACCORD (200mm)
PROTOFORM MAZDA 6 (200mm)
PROTOFORM MGZS BTCC (200mm)
PROTOFORM ALFA ROMEO SEDAN (200mm)
SERPENT RENAULT LAGUNA (200mm)
TRINITY DODGE STRATUS(200mm)

SERPENT RENAULT LAGUNA (200mm)

I am sure this must be a real nice car to drive as it did well some time ago in the BTCC

So you're just testing it out.
How do you like it compared to the 710?

i havent hit the track yet but i will this weekend , but the kyosho feel more free than the 710 (less drag) i feel that it should launch out of the corner a little harder but i wont know for sure until the weekend.

Oh, I think that's a big choice already but yes, it would be interesting to see if there's new ones. Some guy on one of the other threads makes bodies and he was planning to ask ROAR if they'd sanction his designs. I can't remember which thread it was.

OH HELLLL NO!!! Is that thing Legal...???

Well, I must admit that not ALL Serpent bodies are beautifull, but they sure make nice cars. That makes up for the lack of niceness in the Renault.

I was just surprised that Serpent only has one legal body.

My bad... I was moved from one site to another and that caused me to miss a couple of days\pages... 10 or so... maybe more and it is not easy to keep up.

Tell my. do you guys have this problem?

When I was setting up the 2 speed, I found that the oval cam that gous into the shoes in the second gear seemed to twist which caused the second to bind, is this normal or do I have a problem?
