Using a tape measure, it is 15 1/2 inches in length and on the widest part, it is 3 and 5/16 in. or 84mm.

Northern:

OS1 and OS2 aren't upgrades, it means OFF Set 1 and OFF Set 2, 1 is for serpent rims, and 2 are for mugen and Kyosho rims. For the next upgade it will be a kit. I will recomend you to go to the serpent web page a verify which upgrade you prefer.

If you dont change the chassis, you wont be able to use 08' spec suspension arms. They are much beefier around the pivot pin. Meaning in the lowest roll center position found in the lower arm, they will bind on the chassis itself.

The chassis is a must in order to use the 08' rear end. The front end parts arent necessary, but they do make droop adjustments and tweak much better to work with. So the front end is still highly recommended.

For the version of the 960, as far we been told, it will include a new Chassis, due to the changes at the rear end.
