Yep, aren't rumors... it's the same story as Vector/Veteq/VectorNT, after selling so many kits with the hype of a brand new car, who turns on more of the same existing, rebadged and slightly modified.
Poor Serpent customers.... you still accepting that after one year of the most hyped brand new car, you get an evolution of one car, not a revolution. Will be ashamed of still buying those brand of cars.
Let's compare to Mugen and review the Serpent case.
Mugen: The MRX-3 and after the succeful launch of the MTX-3, there are some rumours of a brand new 1/8 gas car for something in the future between 12 or 18 months after almost 2 years of existence without significant changes (only the numerous revisions of the fuel tank), not more is know about it, but for sure that will be a car that still kick bad a$$, as MRX-3 and MTX-3 were.
Serpent: When the Vector was launched, all the people were quick to swap their existing cars (Excel... mainly and under mine personal preferences was the BEST car from Serpent) for a new car like the Vector. Well, 8 (eight) months approximately, after selling innumerable Vector kits, they launch the Veteq, not a fixup for a existing car that didn't worked (thus Serpent users need to burn another 600 or 700 bucks on another 'definitive' brand new car...
Not happy with this, less than a year after, Serpent did another loop launching Vector NT, not an upgrade for their existing car (Veteq... that had problems of funky handling.... for being fair with it) and launched the Vector NT... who seemed a return to the Vector technology.
For sure that Serpent is rich, in less than 2 years they forced you to buy at least 2 cars if not 3.... all for the hype and the bucks in the wallet of their loyal customers.
