Default Serpent Cobra GT 3.0 Upgrades

When will these upgrades be available, and what will come in the upgrade kit??? Also what difference will they make to over the 1.0 version. Also curious about the 2.0 upgrade as well.

Check the Serpent Cobra GT thread, it's all listed recently. Ask on that thread for help if you need more.

This is the parts you need to upgrade your car to the newest in the market.

The 1.0 car difference from the 2.0 is the
position of the rear shocks and the diffs.
You can upgrade your 1.0 but it will cost you more money.
If you have a 2.0 it will be cheaper.

There are a lot more parts than that! You've just quoted the shock towers and lower mounts. Please refer to my correct post in the GT thread. http://www.rctech.net/forum/14357567-post1650.html

Ok if you say so.
What about the diff case spacers, sl8 xli gearbox, centre shafts which are now dogbones not cvds, 6 degree blocks, front suspension mounts. Need I go on?
If you do have all the parts fine (why don't you share some photos of the kit installed?) but don't tell people that all you need to make a 3.0 is less than half the changes (only 5 parts)! That's misleading.

Gear box ✅
6 degree caster block ✅
Front suspension mount ✅
I wont change to dogbones there's no need for that... (My opinion)

I was at the Pan Am Gt 2 weeks ago and there were like 6 cars with all this parts installed.
So i know what im saying brother!

For the GTe what would carry over? I am thinking probably just the shock bits and suspension mounts, I already have the alloy 0 degree caster blocks, I'd like them to do something to offset the front kick up, as a lot of the serpent guys in GTe are being beaten by Hobbyking BSR Bashers as they have no front kick up so behave a lot better. It's frustrating as all ......

Here in Europe the rules make chassis kick up mandatory. I'm not sure about ROAR but I guess it should be about the same.

Share some photos bud. Always nice to see the tricky bits.

The change to centre dog bones is an important one for me as I've found the pins wear out really fast especially in high traction and it's a PITA to change the cvd shaft!

Thought I did recommend no more rumors.

Where did you get the information about Europe from ?
Best guess it´s same quality as what you know about ROAR.

The truth is that there are only drafts for discussion available in Europe.
That´s the current status, finished.
