To answer your question: Honestly you don't know anything, you should just go back tie a string in your RC cars and pull it around your driveway

Sorry guy, It is not that I am always right. I never said anything about the hardness of any plastic. I though we talking about the design. I should have stuck with my first though and said nothing to begin with.

Du bist ja schon ein richtig massive Ar...loch.
Du solltest "ich weiss" ganz schnell aus deiner Signatur streichen.

Geh doch auf's deutsche RC Web, da kommen so Dünnbrettbohrer wie du hervorragend an.

What a jerk!

He's telling mr Hello that he is a asshole, which tends to think he knows everything

And that he should go back to the german forum's or something.

And i think he's right. The only thing the guy is doing is barking on other people.


On topic, the one thing that i really hope for is that Serpent up the quality. I have faith that the fit of the part's will be good, just like the new aluminium rear end of the 966.
I only really hope that they finally change the bearings to the same kind xray uses. When i was driving the 720 i was cleaning the bearings all the time, everytime i opened them they were completely black on the inside from all the grime. When i opened the xray bearings after about half year of racing they were completely clean inside but they were just worn. And the price of a new set is way lower than a set of Serpent bearings so that shouldn't be the issue.

The difference lies in the seals, with the serpent bearings the seals aren't seated properly in the outer ring. The seals are really easy to get out of the bearing, sometimes they just fall out, or get blown away when you use compressed air.

With the xray bearings the seal itself is smaller, so the outer ring is a bit thicker so it grab's the bearing better. With the xray bearings it's a pain getting the seals out and when you get them out they're pretty much ruined. The seating of the seal is that good.
For the wheel bearings the sizes are the same i believe, the bearing's used for the diff's are a bit larger on the serpent.

On the pictures below you can clearly see the difference.
