Just read about it. I am really interested in this buggy, although I am absolutely satisfied with my Yokomo... I guess I'll wait until I see one at the track before buying a new 2WD, my two-season-old B-Max2 will be raced by my son next year.

Took receipt of my Serpent Spyder kit on Friday morning... went together really well - one of the best buggy kits I've ever built (and I've built my fair share!)

Finally got round to spraying and mounting the shell last night so all thats left is to find somewhere to run it

Looks like a nice piece of kit. By the way, nice paint job!

Mes... a decent set of nut drivers would definitely help make the build easier.

And Adey, Serpent are releasing a mid motor car... I haven't seen any pictures of the mid motor kit but I've heard release will be around November.

Nice to see a manufacturer make a purpose built rear motor car and purpose built mid motor car as apposed to trying to fumble one kit together that will allow for either option.

I've already got my name down for a mid motor car so I shall get one of the first ones available... I will be sure to post pics as and when I get it.

Then I look forward to seeing you all trackside

Right, quality tools are always a must. The 4.5 was the only on I did not have in my tool box already, fixed that! As for the Serpent line of cars, I am mainly looking forward to the 2WD Short Course Truck. Our 2WD SC Stock class is by far the most popular, and I'd like to join the crowd again. None of the currently available SCTs is my cup of tea. Yokomo will probably not enter the SC competition anytime soon, and if a Kyosho RB-6 based truck was to be released next year, it would probably cost a fortune...

Default My Spyder build

Hi all, I do the serpent promo websites and the teamserpent sites, I am going to build the car today and tomorrow and will post updates if you are interested go to the page linked below.

I have started the build page and will continue to build the car this afternoon :-)

Link to Spyder Build page

Any questions you have about this and the mid motor version please ask I will get answers directly from Billy and Ronald at Serpent HQ for you.

I do know there are a lot of upgrades arriving soon for this one including diff gear set if that is your pleasure, it can directly replace the ball diff setup.

Anyway let me know if you have any questions that need answering.

The last pic is of a few upgrades and parts I ordered with more coming

Tom

Mid-motor and Short Course: When?!

I forwarded your build page on rctech, and here's a comment by user Captcha:

Quote:
Great blog, and not pointing this out to be a jerk, but I noticed it, and figured you would appreciate someone letting you know.

500232 Shock spring pink 2.2lbs rr (2) SRX3

You put SRX3 instead of SRX2.

Mid motor version by end of November beginning December

SCT will be early next year as it will be based on the buggy anyway so not too much design work to do.

I had hoped for an X-mas SCT release, but not a problem - there are still so many Yaiba Racing and Avid RC parts I can buy and try to make the SC10 a proper truck, before it will become a short course buggy...
