Serpent have just released a teaser regarding their forthcoming 748 200mm nitro on-road kit. They called it the Natrix and its builds on a completely new platform but no other details are known as of yet.

I wonder if this was the car Paolo used for the 2014 Winternats? His car was extremely quick.

Pass you soon...

One change I think it will have is a totally different internal gear ratio. Just thinking

Pass you soon...

Battery location would be a welcomed change. Maybe it will look like is big brother the 977?

Agreed! Just put mine together..The teaser says completely new platform. Was the Natrix at the Hobby Show? Didn't hear anything.

Anyone know what all is changing vs. the 747? internal Gear ratio would make sense as one. They need to release this soon! Racing starts in a month!

I'm speculating, but I would guess a receiver box. I've read many complaints on this forum about the 747 not having one and I'm sure the powers that be at Serpent comb through this forum as well. Personally, I like the car without it.

You can bet they watch the forums, they watch them well.

I'm excited to see this hit the track I will have to grab one up myself! I love my 747 but I too had some changes in mind. We shall see what is released and go from there. Got to get going on this chassis soon there are some big races this year!
