My 966 came in on tuesday and i must say i enjoyed assembling the kit from start to finish i did run in to a problem, i had trouble getting the rear suspension to travel up and down freely as well as the front everything else was a breeze.

Wow its been ages since I remember building a new Serpent kit. I got into the hobby about 10 years ago, gave it up about 4-5 years after since it was hard to find a good hobby shop in my area. I have kits Ive built and never ran, now Im getting the itch again to get back into it this summer. Ive been hearing alot about the Serpent 966. I figure I ask you guys who have them what are your impressions of this new kit and would you recommend me getting one. Sorry to have rambled on and I appreciate any feedback.

Does that differ between IFMAR and EFRA? Within EFRA it is 2500 grams.
