and for everyone saying these kits are tight, i do not believe that, mine is loose. rear top arm links, and steering links, and shock ends all are loose on the balls. top front arms have a slight bit of play also. should be fast straight away
X2 Mine was also loose out of the box! not tight parts anywhere... It felt really good firts time at the track... and getting better!!!

I had (or think I "needed") mount the side belt tensioner in the lower postion. Even after replacing belts to the more durable orange belts. And my parts were so lose out off the box that parts fell every where (j/k). Didn't need To trim or ream a part, perfect fitment!

Still can't find any thing on the optional chassis that's showen on a few sites...

Yeah is not even on the serpent website either... nor is the front spool but I ordered one anyway... I'm curious to see what that optional chassis plate looks like!

Hello all:

Right now most of the people on Serpent America are in the worlds. Early this week I contacted serpent headquarters and they told me that they were in the process of packing. So my best guess is that tanks should be on local distributors around mid next week.

Based on previous experience as Serpent Distributor. The best process is to contact the hobby shop that sold you the kit and ask for the tank. They are the ones that will receive the replacement. This is the only way that Serpent can replace without doubt this defective tanks.

Im sure that once they are available, the will be supplied to dealers.

Thanks for the info about the batteries. Good to know. I have been checking out the new line-up from max amps. I think I'll give them a try.

Well, find a problem with mine other then a cracked tank with didint cause any problem, in fact my car was spot on today.

The tank transponder mount was to low for our system to pick it up today. and lost a heat run do to it. Were are you guys who mount them on top place the transponder? Seems the side is to close to the linkage and other places its a belt or waving hello for a impact.

Am i wrong in assuming the old serpent starter box i had for my 710 and 720 will work for the 733? Does the kit come with an adapter like the others did?
