If this is your first RC car or on-road car, i wouldn't recommend it. Since there a lot of technical details that need to be learn. But if you do have technical knowledge from the off-road, then you shldn't have any problem building nor setting up the car. You need a lot of patience with it and willing to absorb the technical "know-how" as u go along building this car. Check with your local guys what they are running mostly. It would be a problem to be different if u can't get help with anyone running the same car. Any car u get is good, its the matter of controlling it.

As to what motor is best, that is probably anything you like and able to control the power. Do check out with your local club race and see what motor they are using. To have the same motor as what most of the local guys are running will be easy for u if u need some assistance. If you were to ask poeple in here, you could get 10 different answer with 10 different opinion. Each person are bias to what motor they are using.

As for parts, try to get close of a friends who are a sponsor driver from which ever car they are driving or you intent to get. These people usually get good mark down price. Here in Austin, TX, i have no problem getting serpent parts as i myself get good deal on parts on someone i know.
Or you can just order online.

You shouldnt have to force the servo saver on. Once the splines are lined up it should push on without much force. For the servo adapter make sure you have the correct one installed as each number has a different number splines to suit the particular servo being used.

The only thing that comes with the 705 is the wheels. ALthough they do sell an optional kit that comes with engine, pipe and starterbox. Very good price for that complete deal.

I'm not suggesting that everytime you need to maintain your tire diameter, your ride height and droop settings, you go out and get a fresh set of trued tires to get everything perfect... I too run on a budget as far as possible. I recycle my tires, mark their diameters and shores and put them aside when I find that there is too much difference in wear between the rear and the front tires. Usually the rear tires. Don't want to create to much front overdrive. When I find a front tire with a suitable diameter, then I'll reuse the tires I kept previously. You may end up with a buck load of tires but in the long run, you get every mm of performance from the tires.

In order to do this, you need to be able to change and maintain your ride height as you go along when the tires wear.
I thought that was what I just said. Adjusting the set up for tire wear.
I have found a set up that works very well, and I only loose .5 of a m.m. during a 20 min. run.

There are none!!
This car comes with everything you need to race it out of the box!!
The only thing I will suggest to you on buying is optional spur and pinion gears for different size of tracks. The Serpent 705 is made for the larger Eruo tracks that has tall gears for it.....need to gear down the 705 for the smaller tracks here in the US.
