It certainly looks like it has potential, and judging from all the adjustability available on the car from day 1 (whenever THAT will be), it certainly looks like it will have potential. It’s just a shame that their driver stable is so small compared to other teams. I can count the number of Serpent drivers that I’m aware of in all classes on one hand. 😔

On the other hand the “so good you have to at least test drive it” reputation that the current SRX-2 got has certainly got me anticipating this one. Heck, I might have already bought the current SRX-2 if I hadn’t heard that this one is coming, hence my impatient anticipation.

Definitely wait for the new one. Shouldn’t be waiting too much longer.

You’re not helping with my anticipation, lol. Serpent’s last few product announcements have all been on Fridays, so I’m eagerly waiting for the end of the week!

Looks like Velcro will be the way to go with these bodies.

I think they must be updating the site, as the Taipan electric 1:8 car is not listed on there either.

Well, the 989 just popped up on the main home page (on the Mobile version anyway)... The site is really, really slow -Could we be getting TWO new product reveals on the site today? Or is the site just getting slammed with people trying to check the deets on the 989?

EDIT: Site is more responsive now - and no new SRX-2 yet. 😔 Well, as I stated above, it should be “soon” - I figured the 989 would show up first due to its proximity to the Worlds. I know that the Off-Road Worlds is on the calendar first, but Serpent’s money class is definitely 1/8th On-Road.

Looks like Tony Evdoka's car. I know he's running the prototype and uses ORCA electronics.

Wow, the electronics are pretty cozy up front, even with the Lo-Pro servo... BUT, it does manage to get everything pretty much along the centerline of the chassis. 👍🏼

EDIT: From that angle, however, I do have to say that the front turnbuckles are WAAAY out there. It would kind of make me concerned about their fate in the event of a significant front collision. No wonder they are extra thick.

Anyone think that they will wait for the Worlds to formally announce the buggy? I THINK Billy squeaked in to qualify (based on the number of ROAR slots available), so it wouldn’t surprise me if they did.
