There will be a conversion kit that comes with all the necessary parts to convert your 07' to an 08' including the chassis, I will post here once I got those in.

Questions??

With the aluminum front upper suspension brackets, how do you lock in the pins? Do you just tighten the crub screws onto the inserts which then lock them in?

The pin has a flat spot but it does not get used. Is this correct?

That's it. Tighten the grub screw to lock them in. The pin does have a flat spot. What do you mean when you say 'does not get used'? I've never had a pin pop out on my 960 so I'd guess mine is getting used. Anyone else?

As others have mentioned, conversion kit is coming. It will include new plastics on top of the already mentioned chassis. I wonder if it will include the single piece engine mount and centre alu bracket. I guess it would if it's a 100 percent conversion. If you've got those parts already then you'll . . . . have spares! Hello Ebay!

Given what's changed, the full upgrade won't be cheap. Complete guess here but I'd say somewhere around $250. For those with upgraded 960s already, the full upgrade won't make sense. That's why there are smaller upgrades (e.g. OS1 and OS2).

Does anyone know if there will be more than 3 upgrade kits (i.e. OS1, OS2, Mega-Ultra-Full Blown)?

Thanks for your reply.

It seems the flat spot on the pin only gets used with the plastic brackets. It doesn't line up with grub screw on the aluminum brackets.

Or, do you use grub screw in the arm to lock the pin instead of the brackets?

I hope I'm not confusing you all because I'm starting to confuse myself!

Just tighten the setscrew, i know exactly what youre talking about. just make sure the flat spot faces where the setscrew sits, but it does actually get used. When the plastic insert sits inside the alum upper arm bracket, the now "deformed" plastic will fill the void of the flat spot machined on the hinge pin, which will prevent movement of the hinge pin and thus, never losing them.

Thats great, I'm glad you understand what I mean. I will do as you say.

Thanks for your response.

Most of those part #s aren't on the Serpent website yet?

Another question as the Serpent website is confusing. When you look at the list of optional parts for the 08 the WOS steering blocks are listed as an option. When you look at the PDF files of the build manual and reference manual they are listed as standard. Which is correct? Secondly I realize these are tuning options compared to the original steering block, is one of the setting of the new block the same as the old block?

Sorry for all the questions but I am new to this. Why would one want to use the laydown throtle servo and add another linkage to the works? The standup servo setup is simplier?
