The stock transmitter/receiver, was pulled and put up on ebay....I never bothered to try it...however, a friend also bought the Cobra Truggy, and it worked fine for his first run on the track.
I've been doing RC since 1983...owned over 100 cars, and 50 airplanes......this one is a keeper.
I OWNED A LOSI EIGHT T 2.0, AND THIS SERPENT BEATS IT HANDS DOWN! GREAT QUALITY
AND ITS A BEAST ON 6S!
**UPDATE** Serpent America, Florida--GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! Emailed my problem, proof of purchase and photos. Shout out to Doug, Ricardo, and Joaquin for quick response and solving my issue. Parts mailed out next day. Anyone else has this problem STOP IMMEDIATELY and apply high heat to hubs..(I used my soldering iron & wedged into hex area & sit for 15-20 minutes to breakdown locktite) then 17mm wheel nut was able to be removed. ORIGINAL RATING *** After great experience with Serpent America *****
Handles very well, top quality materials used throughout kit,looks amazing, fast on 4s. First the wheels are extremely tight. Cannot remove & now both fronts possibly have stripped wheel hex? Cannot retighten either & now they're wobbling pretty bad. All 4 wheels are like this. I stopped trying once 1st rear wheel did same thing. Second, the plastic piece on lower part of aluminum body broke and shock went out on 1st run. This happened on 4s on moderate jumping in grass. Purchase was made
7/29/20. The shock doesn't concern me, stuff breaks in this hobby & is part of the fun in repairs and upgrades. But the wheels issue sucks because I can't run it (can run on busted shock) don't want to cause further damages from loose front wheels. I bought another set of wheels/tires to use for bashing and stock pin tires (excellent quality) will be used at local track. That's why I tried to remove wheels. I emailed Serpent America office in FL yesterday, maybe they can try to help in some fashion. I'll have to take to hobby shop, because I am beyond my scope of repairs. Also, wrenching on this is harder than expected. I've got AE, Tacon, and HPI electric & nitro RCs since 1996. But Serpent 811te is first rodeo in 1/8th. These are easy fixes but frustrating; wheels tightened by Thanos + threadlock at factory and can't remove is stupid problem to have. Don't let this rating scare you from buying! Get it, just don't change wheels/tires until absolutely ready. And the shock; chalk up as phantom hit...
Well bonded and all the parts are screaming quality and durability..
In 4s this thing is violently fast (accelerates like a bullet-top speed is nice)
In 6s is just not fun! needs a stadium to drive it safely..
All in all this is a super truggy.
I own the TLR 8T 4.0 and this RTR has almost identical quality with the TLR.
(From a fun perspective the TLR with my Novarossi ELITE 5 is more fun but the serpent kills it without hesitation: is faster and more violent and the part quality is the highest possible..)
If you find it, take it. This thing is FAST, DURABLE, NIMBLE and RACE READY for sure!!!
