ps... gonna try running the shocks upsidedown tomorrow. seems like a cheaper way to lower the cg ha.
From the serpent site, the new steering set comes with everything to mount it existing chassis (from original V1), including the lowered steering posts.
The new layshafts aren't lowered, just looks like the rear top deck mounts are machined 1mm lower, which can be taken up with shims.
The lowered mounts don't appear have a new part numbers (looking at the manual), so suspect this will be a rolling change.
As for new plastics (all taken from the manuals)
Old 'kit' (soft) arms - R 401393, F 401397
Old 'Medium' arms - R 401460, F 401459
Old 'Hard' arms - R 401453, F 401452
New rears are 401460, Front arms 401459... so again going to be a running change again by all accounts.
Not sure on testing the shocks upside down mind, you'll be adding to the unsprung weight on the arms.
