Hearing it could be awhile still. Talked to somebody the other day that is pretty upset that it has been stalled. Possible machining issues.

From Rc Racer Mag from the UK
"Serpent is about to release a new version of the 1:12-scale S120 platform called the LTR. The focus on the new car has been to develop front-end adjustability, a new centre pivot system, shock absorber length and position, as well as overall flex dynamics. Look out for more news including an interview with designer Michael Salven. The planned release date for kits is mid-February 2015 although the S120 LTR will be on show at the Toy Fair in Nuremberg next week."

Does it look like the upperarm mount has inserts like a TC?

Maybe it's just me but I don't really see much different in the front end, am I missing something?

from the pic, it looks like the front top pivot ball system has gone to the traditional way!

Yeah nothing revolutionary there but the easily adjustable upper arm length is a nice touch. I suspect the "Innovative Steering Blocks" are probably a Xenon style angled axle to allow steering axis inclination adjustments but I haven't seen it so I have no idea.

I believe the old car had a threaded, captured front kingpin like the CRC, didn't it? This has the AE-style with a through-pin.

Looks like the rear pivot ball is allowed to flex fore/aft so you don't get binding in the pod when it's not perfectly aligned. I like it, hopefully the new F1 has this as well.

Not hugely different but it looks like the upper arms have inserts and they ditched the pillow ball upper arm the old suspension had.

It looks like a better solution to center the rear pod than what others have used with the slotted lower pivot ball mount. The car will automatically adjust not just when assembled but as the pod moves. As the links twist the pod will move forward so the links won't bind...come to think of it that would completely eliminate axle walk as well. It's almost a floating pod system but not quite. The more I think about it the more interesting it is.
