Default OS1 to OS2 conversion.

Hi People

I have recently dusted off and re-built my Sepent 960 and would like to convert it to OS2. Is there a conversion kit available from Serpent to do both axles or do I have to buy the parts separately?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards.

Yes it is the '08' version. I guess if I did this I would have the new rear end also. Shame Serpent dont list the conversion kit on their web page.

Would I be able to use Mugen/Kyosho wheels with OS2?

you need part # 903254 aprox,$80.00 first to convert your 960 to the newer

version upper and lower rear arms and hubs , you can then run mugen

/kyosho rims then if you want you can convert over to the 966

Michael, this part number is not found when i enter it into Serpents search facility. I would rather just convert the hubs rather than convert fully to 966 spec just to save on costs.
