I think this is why his engine idles nicely but as soon as touches his throttle to speed up the engine gurgles and bogs down ... the HSN is richer than it should be to compensate for the small gap.

Right now if he leans the LSN further it doesn't help the bogging down issue right?
Uncle Sow, something to consider..
if your engine has to be 1.25 LSN to idle properly, there is a big chance that the compression is very low.
Quick test, dont touch/change LSN - reduce head shim by .1 mm or replace conrod(I suspect too much play in this part) your engine should scream instantly when trigger touched.

Thanks
In average, I believe I sent about 20hours learning and getting used to building the Serpent shock that once I HATE the most. Art Carbonell written a good tips about it as well I believe (about the bleeding from bottom). After that, you will then realize all other shocks are junks!

Pheww..

jhigga15, dont give up on your 1st pair.
Just make sure the force needed to push(up) and pull(down) is the same. Together with good diff, this car is truly very wide sweet spot.

That's why I ended up with 5 sets of shocks !

Yeah, not forgetting the red hurting fingers.

I think that is not possible seeing Mark's engine is new !

Anyway, any tips on how to check for too much play in the conrod?

Looks like it's brittle. How did it happen? Perhaps too much power from your engine !

Anyone tried the red shoes from Motorman? I tried it with a modified fly weight (added set screw). Works pretty good with the Serpent hard spring but I couldn't get it to work with the Mugen hard spring.

I was thinking of trying it with the cut fly weights to see the difference.

You guys are very lucky to get to try out the red shoes from Dennis !

I've tried the Mugen hard spring on the stock black shoe and with cut flyweights way back early and found that the spring somewhat binds with the pre-tension retaining nut and the clutch nut if I recall correctly. This did not make for good clutch engagement. Went back to the soft stock one. Dennis says he does not have that problem and continued to mention that you probably need to smoothen out the burrs to get the correct fit.

I tried momentarily last week to use 2 of the M3x4 set screws on each of the cut flyweights (6 in total as per Goldfinger's suggestion) and mounted them in between the post with the black shoe. Not bad. Of course this was on my lowly 3 port engine.

Broke when making the mods to fit the bearing. Last batch are all ok on the exact same lathe macine with exact operator. Yes, looks brittle and that`s how the new SER-808220 shaft looks also when break on impact.

I did find that the Mugen spring binds. Also it actually longer than the Serpents. I even tried the Mugen with the retaining nut flat with the clutch nut ( i.e. 0mm instead of the usual .5 to 1 mm) and did not get good engagement.
