The UK importer has said all shipments leave Serpent this week and we expect to have them in the UK by the end of next week.

I know racers got their cars built and shook down this weekend. Any thoughts? Way better? somewhat better, no difference. The 747 is better? Kind of curious.

I saw the manual in detail. It looks like they really cut the extra fat out buy it also makes me wonder about the durability. Some onepiece parts are now two small parts like the engine mount and the pinholder in the bottom front lower arm pins. Also the servo ears of steering and throttle share screws and one servo ear. I hope there will be enough stability in the screw tightness to keep the 2 servos steady. For sure this is a lighter car than 747. The world championships track needs a light car with.tons of flex and tons of center of gravity. A lot more 747 option parts before are now stock 748 parts which is good like the super short rcm shocks! Wow to that!and lowered shock towers.

Recieverbox and extension wire holder was just a masterclass!!

Lowfriction belts are now stock parts in the 748 according to the manual! Haven't checked the actual kit.

I wonder when the new diffs will be ready.
