How about tires, what do you guys prefer for a Serpant style set? I'm looking in the range of 25-30 shore rear, and 30-35 shore fronts.

I always use 35 shore all around....the NITRO SHOES are GOOD and CHEAP. Just in case, you should get a set of 32 30 shore for FRONT if you need a little mroe steering........

Ellegi/Serpent new rims are nice, but you have to pay more for that...

If $$ is no problem, and you want balistic speed, get a Rossi, RB, or similar, and have it modified. You'll come close to 3 HP, un-godly RPMs, and incredible exceleration...

Lol, wow, now that's impressive. I was just naming brands that make powerful engines. That sirio should be plenty. But if you're interested in Rossi: http://www.novarossi.it/eng/motori_index.htm

One of my pit partners has one, but prefers his Pico(these are all .12s). The rossi is fast, but difficult to tune. He also has a sirio, as does my other pit partner. They are very fast, I'd say on par with RB.

I'm betting that sirio will have all the speed you'll need...
