There are over 10 changes to the High Traction car compared to kits before it.

Furthermore, feeling that the car is left behind is an incredible comment under the circumstances that the biggest manufacturers are implementing Serpent ideas to make their kits better. Ideas that we have had on our cars for some years and still very current.
Why would you change something that works better than others and you are complimented by them using your ideas!!

The SRX2 still remains one of the fastest, safest cars to drive not to mention one of the strongest too :)

Saying that, I suppose there is always room for improvement so just remember the best things come to those who wait :)

i raced my srx2 a couple off weekends ago for the 1st time,
its incredibly fast ,strong and reliable straight out the box,
if any one wants help with astro setups please feel free to discuss in the serpent section, ive only run on astro so cannot comment on other surfaces,
there are loads off setups for different surfaces on another website, not sure if i can link from here. but easy enough to find,

The srx2 is a very good, quick and easy to drive car, its pretty strong, only weakness i have found are the front hubs, quite easy to crack them around the bearing, have broken several now. aside from a durability improvement on that part the car doesnt really need anything, apart from more people to try it and realise its a good car!

The_doctor 14-03-2018 12:39 AM

don't get me wrong I too love the car that's y I'm tyring to get the most out of the car...
on loose hard packed tracks the gull arms r inconsistent and the car suffers
I got up to a winning possi only for the car once again to go off ....
strong yes I hit a b6 upside down on the back straight and my car came off the better ...
I just fill the car would really turn around if it had a straight arm front I fill I could push even harder..
and a more modem body would be good we seem to miss out on the latest shapes!!!!!!:thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbsup:
my car comes in at 1524 so it may all come down to a light car as well....
so ill b putting 60gm into the car to settle it down on the track ...

SERPENT still hav some of the best kits and cars out there at at a good price!!!! just alittle more development please for other conditions...
body would b a good start!!!:thumbsup:
