Nothing wrong with the performance of any of the Serpent on road cars.
I think the lack of testing and a bit of bad luck hurt the 747 at the worlds.

Nothing wrong with the 966 it's immense and the 977 will be an improvement.

Personally I think paolo is as good as any driver, everybody could use more help at any big event, but no dought he is a "real top driver"

Paolo M and Scott Kimbrow went 1-2 at the 2012 GLC race with the 966 TE in Toledo,OH last year. I think Paolo M is a better 1/8th driver than 1/10th.
Serpent cars are more than capable of winning on the Big stage!!


Pass you soon...

I saw the 977 being tested today at my local club by a team driver, it looked fantastic!

On my wish list for sure!

No pics allowed to be taken for obvious reasons. It won't be long now
