Didn't make pictures last weekend when I had the car in my hands, but keep your eye on Serpent's website, they will appear there!

The prototype was showcased to selected people at the 1/10 WC in Thailand. Strictly no pictures. But from what I heard, it's 80% new. Only parts carried over from the old car is the SL8 gearbox, the shocks and True Motion clutch. Brake disc is at the rear axle like the MRX5, bulkheads are machined aluminum.

Paolo tested the car at the "FORT" last weekend.
car was fast right out of the box.

The WINTERNATS will be the race for new cars and engines for 2013 to be tested by some of the best driver in the world.

The race will be a great one.

Please explain.

I think he might be referring to will it be made by Serpent in Europe like before ?

But like most of everything and anything these days, they are all made in China. I can't wait to get my hands on the new 977, it will be the most exciting RC purchase for me in 2013!
