Here it is! Enjoy the car completely standard aswell!
Funny enough, it is actually my premiere with my Yokomo BD7 2016 Black Series!
I bought in April 2016, and i can only say that i am certainly impressed by the quality of this car!
I crashed two times today and not even a tweak on the car as i was expecting atleast a little based on the typenof crash i did. But no problem!
I am running the car stock with 450cst oil front/rear and it works great! I am by far the fastest in my club and we have some of the fastest in the country in this club, good job Yokomo!
A little video from today!
I will post the setup i used later this week! Enjoy!
//Yokomo is great!!!//
You probably already knew that David Ronnefalk won the 1/8OR IFMAR World Championship 2016 couple a days ago.
What amazing drive and what a great journey he made to fulfill all his dreams in this sport! He even made his goals in the order he said he wanted too.
1. Become Kyosho Team driver
2. Become full-time driver
3. World Champion
His amazing World Championship win should make a difference in Swedish r/c? Well, i think yes! Let me explain.
I think that his WC win will open the doors for other Swedish racers and have a easier time getting sponsors and make the industry priotize even more on the Swedish market.
Sweden now have 2 World Champions. The last 4 years and we also have several top runners at big races as well!
The way i want and hope the industry will react by these great drivers results coming from Sweden, is to give them more support when it comes to sponsorship mainly!
Give them travel awards, for example if they finish top 5 at nationals they will get the trip paid for a ETS or EOS Race. Give them a carrot, something to work for, they are young and maybe need that little push to get out on the track and race!
Some kids dont even care for r/c anymore, as PC games are easier to just start and play your harts out, and MAYBE become a esport star earning millions.
Well, this argument is not only for Swedish market, but other countrys as well, who keep raising young talents, but no rewards!
finally my first pctures of my project!
Well, it looks like any other car part, but remember it is just one part of many i will make!
I am so proud to be able to design and manufacture my own parts. I have so many different ideas i wanna try out and finally i can do it.
I finally got my hands on a 3D modeling program called Solidworks. With this i have begun sketching some stuff. But so far nothing is done yet.
What i want to do to my old Serpent is to lower the CG overall. So i made a checklist to do.
- Completely new chassi design.
- Redseign motormount making into a smaller piece and motor further in the middle to make better balance left/right
- Redesign the whole shocktower and shocktower mounts to make lower CG.
- Lower geardiff, front spool and middle spurgear for lowest CG.
- Redesign Floating servo.
- Maybe floating battery mount.
- Xray T4 low shocks
So thats the work progress so far, next is to measure everything stock, becuse i still use many of the same Serpent parts and holes the stock chassi have!
This wont be any game breaking design in any way, but maybe in the future i am able to make my own cars. But at the moment i need to test what works and what not
For me this is extremely exciting becuse it is one dream ihave developed since i understood i will never be a fast driver, but maybe i can use my head to make better cars then anyone in the far future.
//Need goals in life, if not, you are dead inside//
I’m back with the Sanwa M12 in my hands to get down laps online before the real racing starts! The SSIC indoor cup starts on the 5th of November!
Now onto the cool stuff! I have gotten myself into a position where i can start building my own car and parts with CNC machines. I will start doing parts for my stock car to test and race with to see if stuff works and have so much fun while doing that!
So i will start posting my own creations in the future and try ny best to describe the difference from stock piece and my own piece.
I can make things like this:

It’s time for a rant!
As some might remember i got a completely new Serpent Eryx 4.0. And as you also might know is that i gave that car about 3 months and then i trashed it for a Yokomo bd7 2016.
The car was complete garbage! The car was so bad the pro’s and faster drivers went back to the 3.0 model as much as possible, it’s mind boggling how they release a kit that is worse then the old version.
Well, in my opinion it was their goal to release a car that was about half a second slower per lap and send the kits with products that didnt make the quality check! Why serpent? Why do this kind of shit to people and your most hardcore brand lovers?
The fact is, Serpent tricked you all, including me. They had the Serpent 4X Project ready the weekend after the Eryx 4.0 was released.
But hey, lets keep lying to our customers and tell them the kit is meant for outdoor asphalt racing and should be great for 2016 Worlds in china! Yay, that saved our shitty results with the new car!Well guess what, they brought the freaking 4X Project instead! Even they told us since day one it was a carpet car! What the hell serpent, that is so low for a big company and well known brand with great history to do something like this.
This is not just my opinion, it’s facts! Serpent are tricking you to buy shit kits and laughing their ass off!
To end this rant, i wish you all a great indoor season that is soon to come and have a great time!
