If you plan to race you will eventually find a need for them. But, you definately will need 35's in your tire inventory as well. I say buy 'em and test them out for yourself .. good luck!

True. I have some 37s I previously bought and will try to test them out tomorrow. Only thing is I'm not sure how they run in hotter weather. I'll buy a few for now and get the 35s later. Thanx jag!

Hey the Hotter the Weather the better those 37's should work. The 35's theoretically should wear faster depending on surface. So 37's might be your best bet. I run 37's now instead of 35's and they have consistently worked great...

Just got my MRX-4R. I've had a long stint with Serpent, but I've finally decided to give them up. I'm kinda sick of them coming out with a new car/version every six months. Also, the cars are so techie, that they're too hard to set up, but that's neither here nor there.

Are there any building tips, or "must have" hop ups that I need for this car?

I seen pretty much everyone now switchin to the R as it has those few upgrades on it. Unlike the MTX4, which everyone that told me is great stock yet pimp it out with aftermarket parts, it doesn't need to be pimped. Dial it in and run it stock. Tune it up!

Serpent comes with a car every 6 months?.....
You don't HAVE to buy them all, or do you?
And it's about every 2-3 Years that they come with a new version.....
Oh, can you still get spare parts for a MRX-2 ?
You can for a Vector '97.....

If you don't understand how to set-up a car, it is not the fault of serpent....
But if you want a simple car, buy the Shepperd......

With that "manual" they provide I can understand the question about the "building tips"...

My first Serpent 1:8 scale was an Excel. I wish I could name all of the 1:8 scale models/revisions that there've been since then. I will agree with you though. When I opened the 4R box, everything was all co-mingled in one bag. Not like the compartmentalized boxes that I'm used to with serpent. Also, the Mugen instruction manual is not nearly as nice as Serpent's, but I do like the setup sheet that Mugen includes.

At any rate, I'm not here to flame either brand. I do still have my 705. I'm just trying to find out the best practices for building the 4R, and it's good to hear that I can build it stock outta the box (thanks HarKonnenD).

Pooh,
What's up playa? Gonna pick my 4R up later today. Went to Bridgeport,Ct track Saturday with my Mtx-4 and loved it, should be the same with the 4R. We got spoiled this past weekend with some 65*+ weather, but will not be that lucky the next few weeks so the first run will have to wait till Mother Nature cooperates. Will most likely hit up C-Whits new track if they get er' done in time. Your pretty close rite? Maybe we'll bump heads.

Sohlman, hit a brother up on the celly.

You better get out today cause the weather is about to get bad again. The track is available for practice daily until sundown(noice ordinance). Go out and have some fun.
