How can I justify buying one and put on the shelf? What will my wife say? How can I explain it to her? It's BEAUTIFUL, but I don't run nitro... Oh, cruel hobby.

Easy. Start running nitro! You'll get hooked there is nothing like it! Electric is fun but not even close

Couldn't have said it any better myself .
Where I am our season is pretty short but that didn't stop four of us from
getting the car in preparation for the start of next season .

Default 747 vs 748 opinions

For any previous Serpent 747 owners, how does the new Natrix compare in laptimes and tuning sweet spot? I'm a budget racer hoping to keep running the 747 competitively and donít want to spend the money on a Natrix unless there is some huge improvement over the prior model.....

Any thoughts? Thanks.

The 748 was bigger jumper in performance when compared to the 733 to the 747. The 748 is lighter than the 747. I can honestly say that the 748 is more competitive than the 747. Nothing wrong with the 747.


Pass you soon...

I'm in the middle of rebuilding my car right now after the season.
But i cant find the size of the diffcase o-rings. Does anyone know?
Or do I have to order the original and wait two weeks for them to arrive?

I can also say that this car is a beast... my car has some wet races on its historylist but its as smooth as if it was new. Just changed bearing as such.

Hmmm.... the new diffs will be released soon... You might want to wait...
If not I would just order the Serpent 804303.


Pass you soon...
