Serpent Spyder SRX-2 RM Rear Motor 2WD Competition Electric Buggy Kit
The kit goes together amazingly well. Best kit I have ever built and I have been building and racing RC in excess of 20 years. The shocks are as smooth as silk. On track it is incredible even at kit standard settings. This 2wd platform is going to do something special over the next year to come and this is just the beginning. Can't wait for the mid motor version as well!

Serpent Spyder SRX-2 RM Rear Motor 2WD Competition Electric Buggy Kit
Kit was a bit frustrating to build. The shock pistons were not symmetrical and I needed to trim them down to fit the shock body. The the adjustable heights for the diff are not labeled for the lower out drives so can be a challenge to get aligned. The kit is a bit perplexing, high quality carbon fiber shock towers and battery strap and then cheap plastic nuts for attaching the tops of the shocks to the shock towers. Also, the wing attaches with screws which is very secure but a pain to take on and off. The biggest flaw are the captured ball studs. So challenging to screw in and chances are your 5mm nut driver won't work on it. All that being said, just running the stock setup this thing handles fantastic. It was as dialed (if not more so) than my Losi 22 that I'd been tinkering with for a year. I'm crazy impressed with how much steering it has. I can run my shorty pack all the way back for maximum traction with no loss of handling. I can only imagine how good this buggy will be as I dial it in more. It's a bear on the workbench and a beast on the track.
