I still have a new Serpent Vector and a Jinfeng.
I have tried to sell them here, some guys ineterested but thatīs it.
I have a ton of parts for the Vector.
Was wondering if they are worth keeping and if there is a source for parts for these older models.

This looks like a Serpent Impact 235 mm on road car. You get vintage Serpent parts in the for sale forum on this site or on eBay.
You definitely need some wheels. As far as other parts its best to get a manual to identify part numbers. Depending on
what you need, I may have some parts.

Your best bet to sell is on eBay most on this site are interested in racing current models, there are some collectors but not many. A new vector is
definitely worth some $$$ more as a collectors item than for someone who wants to run it. eBay and RCtech is the only source I know for
vintage parts. They are scarce thats why no one really runs vintage cars because replacement parts are hard to find. Post some pics of your
Vector and lets see what you got.

Default Looking for Tires and Battery Tray for Serpent 835 Impact & 710 Impulse

I have two older Serpents (835 & 710) and both are missing the battery trays. I'm also looking for foam tires for the 835. Not the wheel/tire combo but, just the foam so that I can mount and true them myself. Does anyone have any extras they are will to part with, or know where I can buy the parts state-side?

I found tires and wheels, so I'm good there but I need parts for the Mugen K2 Advance and a Battery Tray for the Serpent 835/Impact. Here are a few pictures:

I seem to remember some foam wheels without rims in my stash I will check. As far as the battery tray You probably wont find one State side, the only one I found was this one in Hong Kong https://www.rcjaz.com/serpent-801171-batterycase-connector-p-90081648.html and one from The Border RC oversees that was in stock but a repro made in brass for 36.00. If you are pretty handy you could probably make one and retro fit it out of aluminum or pay someone like me to take mine and have it printed.
I have a complete Mugen Avance and Serpent 835 in excellent shape if you're interested.as well as some spare parts for both.

Hello puffdogg, I have a Jin Feng Colt and need the 3 belts. Can you please tell me those references to buy?
Thanks...!

Thanks NytroNutz. The Mugen is missing quite a few parts because someone decided to convert it to two wheel drive along the way. So I need the mid shaft parts and the front one-way. I also need the left and right L-shaped brackets that the top plate bolts to in the rear. If you have any of these parts let me know.
