I guess we will have to do the "wait & see" thingy.
I _personally_ think that Serpent will and should release a new car "soon". The s705 seems to struggle both in the market place and at the track versus the competition, mainly the mtx-3. You see people switching from s705 to mtx-3 but not the other way around. This must be unaccaptable, in the long run, for a company like Serpent.

Im very satisfied with my 705, it has served me well and is extremly solid (pansar plastic ). But me being satisfied doesnt change the bigger picture...

But as ive said, Im just a clueless n00b


wait and see, but its no harm to speculate

What pinion gears are those? Are they from the old fixed pinion Centax clutchbell or are you fitting the older Impulse 2 shoe clutch?

Depends on how tight the track is but I guess it's gonna be more than enough low end punch. 12/16 with 50/46 is gonna give you a final drive ratio of 8.90 and 6.14 respectively. To be able to use this gearing to great effect, your track needs to be very TIGHT

I'm using 13/16 with 50/44 (final drive ratios of 8.22 and 5.86 respectively) and I find that I'm out of gas 3/4 way on the short straights at my local tight track.

There will be a point of diminishing returns when you gear your 1st gear too high.

Yeah, .15 headers are nice. Team Serpent previously used the 2690 inline pipe set meant for .15 engines on the 705. Now I notice that they are using the TP05 pipe. Very nice too

Here in Europe the team uses the new TP06 pipe (.12), but they don't tell wich header. Normally they tell you in the setup's on MyTSN.com wich pipe and header they used, but not with the new pipe.
Friday i am getting the new TP06 pipe, so if its dry saterday i can test it with the old TP05 header

The TP06 pipe is pretty new I believe. Not yet sold to the public. Are you based in the Netherlands?

Anyway, I thought that the TP06 was a complete inline pipe set and it comes complete with the pipe and header.

Yes its new and very hard to get! (special hobbyshop connetions ) This pipe is a leftover from Portugal.
They're to be sold as a complete set or only the pipe.
I will get mine for about 77 euro's

Yea the track is very tight. 122x60 (straight is alittle less than 100ft)alot of short shoots between corners.Yea I opted for the impulse old style setup to try but im using 1/8 scale mip type clutch so I have adjustment in the clutch with 1 or 2 springs(spring bands that wrap around the clutch) and a light and heavy setting on shoe position.It should be interesting if i have it correct it should rock the infield and get down the straight my motor has more than enough to cover the straight.I'll let yall know how it works

Ah, special connections are always nice

Anyway, the part number for the TP06 manifold you're looking for is 2174.

BTW, what part number is your pipe? I believe it's 2171 EFRA pipe and not the 2173 is Outlaw one.

Default MCP Engines

I noticed that RCCarinternational has the 2105 MCP (3 port) engine for EURO 294.47 while the 2104 MCP (5 port) engine is EURO 300.74.

The 5 port piston sleeve set 2133MCP is EURO 139.77.

3 port piston sleeve set 2134MCP is EURO 132.78

TP06 Outlaw Inline Pipe Set (2172) - EURO 108.82

TP06 EFRA Inline Pipe Set (2170) - EURO 108.82

This is of course prices without tax.

After or before tax? I saw that the pipe alone cost EURO 76.55 excluding tax...

The 2174 manifold will cost EURO 35.03.

Sorry but the manifold i'm looking for is not the 2174 it's a new model. The team is testing it, but i haven't had a change to have a look at it.

My pipe is the Nova Mega Tuned pipe .12 tp06 efra 2171
The price i pay is 76.55 Euro (inc. TAX) is for the pipe alone (no its the normal shop price)

For better prices than RCINTERNATIONAL look at:
http://www.modelsport.nl/webshop/
They don't offer it yet (to the public) but this is where i buy my RC stuff (great prices, super service and new parts fast on stock)
Also look at:
http://shop.the-border.nl
They have all the prices on there site but the pipes are (like you said) not yet sold to the public

Default Serpent's New Tourer?

Ummm, while browsing at the links Schrijver99 gave, I came across this... For what it's worth.

http://www.modelsport.nl/webshop/sho...ils.php?id=604

For one thing, the guys are pretty certain that a new car will come out

Anybody like to put their head on the chopping block?
