you need the 17 side,

you can run the 23/46 combo for the rear though...

rear toe is always in, not sure if it would be considered negative or posative, but in not out, the front of the rear tires.......

if you had rear toe out good luck driving

thanks for the advice on part sources initialD.

Question for y'all on the serpent shocks.....is there some secret to building these shocks that I'm missing? I'm a new Serpent owner, but not new to the hobby....I've never had as many probs building air-free shocks.

Incidentally, these are the aluminum body shocks...not the stock plastic ones.

any advice??

Thanks again.

use the plastic..

bleed from the bottom, use the hudy shock tool, use gs bladders, drill a hole in the cap for the bladder to move freely, and rotate the piston on a very very fine paper to make smooth, use green slime on the o ring, before assembly... hm wait for the bubles to be gone, and screw the cap on slowly......

the best shock i have ever used, but i do hate building them..

That's the problem ,, I don't know how to consider this because all the set ups in my Tsn, when is negative they use for example -1.5 but when you look at the rear toe-in it says 1.5 only, so that should be positive toe-in,, if you read older set-ups for the impulse in the section of rear toe-in always says -1.5 for example ,, well i don't now if their missing the - in this set ups for the 705 or what?

In the back of the manual it explains all the adjustments and what they are for.

Nice Map,, but I guess I dpn't need a map to now where is the toe going ,, what I asking is , if in My TSN Setup sheets maybe this guys are missing something,, this little line(-) in front of the numbers, that's all, because if they are not putting this little line in front of the number then you understand that is a positive number so you are going to make the adjustments to the positive angle ,, toe out..
sorry guys,, hope you'll understand!!

ciao!! any ways ,, thanks for your replys!!

i am getting what you are saying, just that in setups there is no correct setting of toe out, therfore the + or - is irrelavent as it is not a option to beyond 0 deg's

it is not worth hurting ourselfs trying to think about it...... though i do have inraceable conditions for two months so maybe it is...

ok guys im new with serpent but I got a impulse pro from a trade. My question is, is this car just as competitve as the 705, do some of the parts from the 705 work on my impulse pro? Does serpent offer an upgrade kit for the impulse pro to bring it up to 705 specs? Or what parts do I need to upgrade to get it to a 705. Thanks for the help.

Thanks ammdrew,, for your understanding,

but maybe is irrelevant as you said, because any car can run with a toeout, ( i guess ) so let's for get about it OK , you now ,, new car , new set-up, almost everything is new here, so i'm trying to read everything and understand everything , because here there's no room for mistakes, so i'm just getting all ready to rumble for the next weekend for my first introduction with my 705 ,, just i want to let every body like this

well guys that's all ,, thanks again!!
ciao!! and good racing....
