Car isn't at the shops just yet, possibly the end of the week in Europe, NA is suppose to be the end of the month. The only motor shop I know of that sells Serpent is in Winnipeg, Clockworks Engines (John). There might also be Serpent available at RC Depot in Edmonton (Cory).

If its for 17.5 blinky a good start FDR is 4.0. I would start with 700 diff oil and 400 for the shocks front and rear. Springs something in the 14 to 15 lb range........then you'll have to tune from there.
