Rims or donut could be hard to find. If you have a Truer, you may find 235 pan car tires from Calandra racing.

The 235mm nitro been gone a while. maybe Europe you'd find some, In US its dead. If you have time and $$$ you can find out if Serpent Vector parts will fit. Sure they do. Got the Impulse, Impact and Vector in front of me. I'm sure not much will change with Serpent Parts between 700 series to the 900 series.

I have a bunch of ennetti tires. I bought someone out in the uk. Was going to get one of my impacts going and lost interest. So I have 235 mm tires and serpent cars layin around if someone wants me pm me.

It is a shame that the r/c racing governing bodies killed off this class. Back in the day, 235mm 2wd and 4wd were the thing before 200mm took off. I still have two 2wd cars and one 4wd rolling chassis (2 Serpent Impacts and 1 Mad Dog {Serpent clone}). If you raced 2wd, that was a true driver's class. I would be all in for this class if it was to ever come back.

Very true. The 2wd class sedan was the best.

21 motor mount to big, maybe Serpent Impulse, 705 will fit cuz the M2 & Impulse are the same chassis. 12 & 15 smallblock.

Take it back. 12 & 15 footprint of the two are different. Definitely Footprint of 12 is smaller.

Yes, 12 engine. Not the 15, 15 original in the M2. If you find the 15 mount you can use the .18.

The engine mounting holes on the impact are further apart compared to the Impulse, you can tell by looking at the small block engine mounts for impact (808381) on their site. From what i have read this is the only option for mounting a small block on the Impact M2. My question was if i want to run a .21 big block, could i use mounts from the 950 chassis? I know the mounts will need to be taller than the stock .15 big block mounts.
