Default The Silent Serpent Killer!

Guys, Im continuing my progress for those of you who were following and supporting my project (97% of the guys who replied on my other post) so that you can see the end. Dont worry, I'Ve emailed the moderator and were good to go on working on this project. For the speed fanatics,we dominated 06' now we goin right back!!!

Quick updates:

-Unofficial Weight came In- Just alittle over 4 lbs(That is a fishin scale,I know,but you gotta do what u gotta do!)
-Camcorder just arrived- SONY Hi-Def 40GB HD(time fo us sum filmin
-New F1 Body just came in(much better than the one pictured!!!)
-Lastly, 350Z Just arrived(will run against F-777GT aka.(gunmetal, aka. Serpent Killer) to see how a mediocre IGT Stacks up against a Real Super Car

Enjoy the pics

1) what happened to the black rims you had on the car?
2) what happened to the jammin pipe you had on the car? the pipe in the pics above is clearly not jammin pipe because the end of it is different because theres an extension on it and you cant fit extensions on jammin pipes the way the exaust tip is made.
3)did you decide to change controllers? the antenna on the car in the other tread was black and short, and the one above is blue and longer and matches the calsonic body.

just want to know..

Dude, where are you getting the F1 boddy from to fit this thing? I would love to have an F1 body dude. Also, are you going to reveal your cool shock set up as well. I will give you the benefit of the doubt here and not pre-judge you and your skills or talents. They might be lacking in a few areas (Math or how to figure out final drive was the main one, but lots of people don't know how to do this simple rollout equation) so I'm not dissin you bro. Just curious on the F1 body and the inboard shocks. Also, what will this F1 body fit? Like the IGT cars only, or maybe other type 1/8th scales. I just love F1 and would die to have a body on either my older IGT (Lanmax) or one of my 1/8 scale buggies. You did pretty good getting that weight down. Is that weight with ALL your equipment in other then body and fuel? Like radio stuff, battery etc? Just curious, keep up the work, slowly but surely. One thing for sure, your not a QUITER!!! I also hear you live in CO, so do I. I live in Evans near Greeley. But am always in Denver, the Springs, Fort Collins etc. Where you at if you don't mind sharing. Anyway, good luck on your project dude. Persistance just might pay off.

what are you gonig to compare it to a inferno gt...........i thought the thread was called SERPENT KILLER not inferno killing another inferno............ofcourse ur axe roosi will blow away a stock inferno the stock inferno sucks...........

run a serpent and see what happens........

No the bluee 350z in the pictures is not serpent killer,it is just a new regular inferno gt that i just purchased to run against gunmetal that is why everything is so different.

I asked dude (rchabits) what part of Colorado he's from. I live in CO too. I have the Serpent 960 '07, 2002 and 2005 Slide and the new MOTONICA. And I will race him both on a straightaway and on the track. He just never answered my questions to my post. You pick ANY car you want me to run and I will race you. If you want I also have in Sedan the G4S and the Serpent 720 if he would rather do that. Makes NO difference to me. It's all for fun, but I'll show him how fast these cars really are if he wants.

Here is a pic of the 960 and the engine I will use. So just let me know the time and day. I'm free this weekend, although it's cold and snowing right now. Bummer man. Well, when it gets nicer anyway.

im just wating for the video.....i can get my hands on a bone stock inferno gt just to compare.....ima let him post his little video when he is done.......ill post a video of ONE OF MY inferno gts..........and lets see what he says....

on a side note.........i got a spare ninja 21 offroad laying around with a onroad header and pipe...i did a jato project with it that failed BIG TIME.....so now i go tthe motor laying around with no where to go........i think depending one what kinda cost id be looking at i mgiht built a 1/8 scale serpent for the hell of it gear it up a bit for top end speed and have run with it........not a 960 but something like a 950, or 950R something i can get cheap and still get parts for....

Dude, I have a spare 960 with LOTS of hopups I will let go for a decent price. I have any size gears for it brand new plus whatever else you would need. PM me if you want. The car has ceramic bearings and all the go fast stuff. Here's a pic.

Serpentd is that the C6 RR? cant tell what it is from the pics, nice 960.

MiFinest, what happened to the jato project, i remember i look into the tread a few times back when it was only 2-4 pages long and everything seemed to be going good.

Well, the one in the car is the C6 yes. The other pic of just the engine is an EB modded Xenon R. I haven't raced this engine yet, but the C6 is usually more then enough power just stock. It's fast dude! I think you know if you recognize the engines. But I am stoked to break out that Modded Xenon R. Probably for the Winter nats in Florida.

i came out good looked nice but the motor was way to much for the car even with the gearing i was running and let me tell u my gearing was TALL if u go to the thread u can check it out my projected top speed should have bein liek 120 MPH........

but when i actually ran it i couldnt control it past 60 MPH........no matter how slow id open up the carb the motor would create a burst of power and make the foam wheels peal out even with a 200 foot roll out........i lost control of crashed it.........wasnt that bad jsut needs a new shock tower but after that i lost interest so i ripped the motor off and im going to mount it somewhere else

Well,i think it was worked out to be 107mph theorectical.
I still think we could of worked out a way to release and contain that power...would of liked to see how fast it would of gone but it's up to you.
Now how about putting that motor in your Super RS4?Now that i'd like to see.

Yes i know that...but there are easy fixes to reducing the drag....trim and soak the belt.More advanced fixes would mean making new parts.
Just trying to give you a harder project.
