For tires you can use 35's or 38's.

For set-up, this is what I start with. I can't put it on a 960 sheet because I don't have a full version of Adobe. This should get you started.

Droop: 2
Camber: 1.5
Toe: .5 out
Oil: 45wt
Spring: Red
Piston: 3 Hole
Shock Position: Upper hole on tower
Upper Arm Postion: Out
Bar: 45

Rear:


Droop: 9
Camber: L-3 R-2.5
Toe: 2
Oil: 45wt
Spring: Red
Piston: 3 Hole
Shock Position: Lowest hole on tower
Bar: Flat
Roll Center: Low

Gearing

1st: 49-15
2nd: 45-19

Tires:

Shore: 35's
Size: F- 68MM R-74MM

Chris

Hey, I'm overseas in South Korea. Is there anyone who will ship overseas, maybe in Hong Kong? RC Mushroom, RC Mart and The Border have all been good but they don't have the product in.

Contact Kevin at Ace Hobbies ( [email protected] ). I know they will ship overseas and I am pretty sure they will get the new wheels soon.

Serpent has develop a new wheel. We tested last weekend at Kissimmee with awesome results. I TQ and won the race. They provide a lot more traction. I tested back to back with the previous one, and i was able to be faster and more comsistent (same rubber). They are lighter, so less rotation mass and faster acceleration.

Attached a few pictures
Is JACO going to manufacture that would fit the competitor?

Jaco has their own line of tires and rims that will fit your car. Serpent/Jaco tires are Jaco rubber mounted on Serpent's own wheel.

Serpent also has a Jaco sedan tires that are mounted on the yellow Serpent wheels but will work with any car.

I think you can use the new RCS shocks off the 960. People have been using them on their 950's and 710's.

I've seen .21 used in 235 cars for drag racing a few years ago. I think it will bolt right in but the car will be a handful.

Madbeats, great pics, but it looks like your front upper A arms are on upside down or rather the left is on the right and right is on the left.
