Car looks really REALLY good at the ENS. The corner speed and general balance looks impressive....

The 748 is about 25% upgrade from 747, it is not a new model, quoted from the manufacturer in China.
If there is a new car, it will be named as the second digit model number change, e.g., 757.

Serpent deem it enough of a change to state that the 748 is a new platform! The 'manufacturer' in China just make the bits.

Many of the important bits are new. Front geometry is new. Entireradio setup is new. Weight balance is new. Diffs (arguably one of the most important parts in 200mm) are new.

I'd say irrespective of the number or percentage of new parts it's a new platform.

That's just switching one side of the battery. I.e. Just the positive wire or the negative wire. The other goes straight to receiver. Neat idea if you ask me!

I never change an rx pack during a race meeting so wouldn't worry about it too much. I'm definitely gonna try it when I build the natrix.

Check HPI they probably have a 200mm version of what your looking for. None of the proper racing bodies are based on that car. We are all racers in this thread so probably can't help you much more.
