Just take a look at other forums (Serpent 710, Serpent720, etc..) G4S forum is more active.. As a former Serpent owner, yes I've learnt lots of things from these forums but here there is a more friendly and warm interaction

Thank you guys.. Keep it up..

Your clutch seems to be fine to me. Very even wear which is good. However I don't understand what 4-5 days is. Could you be more accruate like how many hours on that clutch? This might make me have a different opinion. That looks like about 4 hours worth of racing to me. Some set ups will go through clutches faster just because of the track conditions. But you can compensate for this with either a softer spring or by setting your clutch nut a little looser. It all depends as there are lots of factors to consider. Let us know how much time you have on that exactly.

i mean 1 day using is about 1/2 gallon fuel consumption

and circuit grip is very good.. But Tire consumption is very high.

after about 4-5 fuel tank race, rear tire diameter got 56mm, from starting 65mm.(37 tire)

Maybe the lettering or font need to be different. It kinda looks like it's all wobbly and bunky. Maybe it needs to look more speedy and accurate. The name is good though.

WOW!!! Dude, 9mm of wear in 20-25 minutes of racing or so. That is VERY HIGH!! Since you mentioned the track to have pretty good grip, I would try a harder tire like 42. The thing about harder tires is that it might take a few laps to scrub them in and get them up to temp. So they may seem loose at first, but after about 3 or 4 good laps they should come up to grip. I would try and set up my suspension and all around a higher shore tire bro. I have raced for 1 hour and only lost 6-7 mm. However that is smoother track. Plus that is running 42 all around on good grip track.

As far as the clutch shoe, it's hard to say. If that only has 5 tanks on it then it seems to be wearing a bit fast. But I might be wrong since I am not use to this clutch personally. I am comparing to other clutch shoes like S720. Does your clutch engage hard, or does it seem to slip?

Hey ZOOM! Hope things are going good bro. I kind of agree with the wobble effect here. Name is KILLER!!! Maybe a bit more streamline, like an F16 jet would be something to consider Hodak?? I need to look at it longer

Dude, I need to look at that longer. I have done a lot of custom airbrush as you know, and I need to see if this grows on me more because it is very unique. I gotcha with the Hot Wheels thing bro!!!!

My car is no oil painting (or maybe more oil than painting) and should not be used as a reference for 'how to make a car look good'.

I'll throw a pic of it up at some point.

I would post a pic but no body painted yet. I am trying to redo the brake lever here and not happy with the results. I like to have the threads in the front by the servo so I can adjust some drag brake in pit lane fast. Anyone done this???? Will post pics of what I am working on here.
