Default Serpent OS1 - OS2

Ok, i know ther is a difference in that OS2 is the kyosho wheel...What is the exact difference? is it just offset, is the hub a different diameter or ?

Thanks,

Scott

Its offset ... the fronts only 2 or 3mm ... but the rears on os1 are much further inboard and unusable on os2 (which are the same as Mugen/Kyosho)

Thanks.

Now, is there any way to covert a 950R to OS2 wheels?

There's no way I can see. The rear end would be too wide with the new wheels.

That is what i figured. Looks like i need to buy a bunch of OS1 wheels/tires while i can or sell the 950r.

Thanks for the reply.

It sucks because the car seems capable enough, but it's probably the excuse I'll use to justify getting a 966.

Ashford Hobbies has a TON of rear mounted foams....cheap, too. Oddly enough, I can't find the wheels only anymore on Ashford's site.

You mean the Serpent 950R?

Great car, a little outdated if you were trying to run on the national level, but at the club level, still competitive.

The 6000 predates the Excel, which I know was from around the mid '90's....I think it's from the late '80's/early '90's(?)

I do remember that the first Impact 1/10 chassis shared a lot of 6000 suspension parts, but I don't know how easy they'd be to find now. A few years ago when I was restoring my Excel, I was buying a lot of parts from pk racing in Holland because they had EVERYTHING for the older cars...haven't bought anything from them recently, so I couldn't say if they still service the older cars.

OS1 wheels/tyres are readily available and will be for some time to come ... Edam still uses OS1.

A decent driver will still be quick with a 950 .. 1/8 doesnt change that much.

That is good news. I was thinking of eBaying my 950's, as long as i can get tires, i will keep them.

Exclamation

It looks like the Edam car shares some dimensions with the 950, and from what I've read, some are using Mugen or 966 parts to enable the use of OS2 wheels. I'm gathering information to see if this conversion is possible, preferably with all-Serpent parts, but it looks like it won't be cheap...$150-$200 to do both the front and rear.
