Sweet looking car.
1. If you were to build one up from scratch, would you prefer the AE or Serpent kits? It depends on your budget and if you have either one of the cars already. The Serpent will be a little more expensive if you don't already have one, but If you do have one, the pod plates dont come with that kit so you can use the ones from the serpent. In which case it will be the cheapest route, having a serpent already. If you are starting from scratch the Ae one will be a little cheaper.

2. What shock is that in the AE pic? looks like a silva but not quite sure, Hotbodies.

3. Do you need offset hubs to help center the axle? Not unless you use Xceed or crc rear tires. Jaco/parma/mobgum you dont need the off set hub.

4. Can you tilt the servo upward (does it hit the top deck) or is the intended configuation to have it flat on the chassis? Its intended to sit flat.

5. Are there any holes drilled out for battery positioners? In the production chassis there will be locating holes for a 3mm screw and nut to keep the battery from moving round.

Thanks!
