Good to see that there will be a new Centax, the current one on a 705 feels a little sluggish to me.
Active in 200mm is not new. Although it was first used in 1:8th on-road in the mid 90's, I have been working on this for well over a year in 200mm and to be honest I believe the only reason Serpent went with this path is because they heard that another company was producing it for the Winter Nats and they are still sore about getting their asses well and truely whipped by BMT in the 90's when they failed to produce it for there cars back then.
After looking at the 3 pivotball hub carrier design incorporated in the new Serpent I will say that I believe they have messed up the design once again and the car will again be heavier than really need be. To have the whole wishbones and hubs moving to create the active toe requires a lot of extra parts which just add weight.
Looking forward to the Winter Nats.
I believe my system is more sound and
