Wow!! That has to be on a smaller track running tires that small. I can't make roll out even with the longest gearing on my track when my tires are that small!!

Nigel, what is up my friend?!?!?!?! So dude, are you afraid to start out on 68mm rears? J/K dude. Hell, I don't like to start out with less then 70 rears. Anyway, how about the Worlds event so far, huh? Pretty killer man. I realize that it's very early in the game, but regardless it's nice to see some Serpents up front. Would you happen to know if they are running the "new" rear end for the Kyosho/Mugen style wheels? Also are they using that new killer chassis that you guys sell? I think it's called the Central or something like that. Anyway, tell your dad hey for me please. Miss hanging with you guys. We'll see you at a track soon enough. Later bro.

Darren

Hey Nigel and Sam, Darren here. Dude, you guys aren't upset with me are you because I ran the Motonica instead of the 960 at the nationals? Just curious. I will have to admit that I am torn between the 2 cars as I love them both very much.

Anyway, question for you guys. When will the "new" rear end be available for the 960? Also, I have a TON of Serpent tires that I need to use and was curious if the new rear end will accomodate both rim designs by changing the axles or whatever. Just curious. If not then I will run the current rearend until I run out of Serpent tires. Which might take awhile. Also, do you have the new totally awesome chassis in stock for the 960? Will I need anything to go with it or is it a direct replacement? You guys take care! Later

Hello i have a question, i'm using the Wheel-axles fixed set in front and rear. But i'm not sure where i must use the rubber o-rings. Between wheel nuts and the wheels ?? between the wheel and the axle bearing ???

Please i need help, and excuse my english i suppose it's quite poor.


Thanks a lot

There lies a groove in the Wheel-nut where the o-rings are applied. When in place, they act as a locking mechanism for the wheel nuts.

New rear end is scheduled to be released soon, no real release date, i want to say after the worlds when the parts are considered "proven." The chassis is a direct replacement.

Btw, choosing friends by brand loyalty is childish. My closest friends in r/c run Mugens, and im the only Serpent running in our entire area. Doesn't mean i should be mad at them.
