Good find. Only teaser I was able to find right now were the driveshafts https://www.serpent.com/xcart/cart.p...roduct_id=6989

Edit: Was also able to find some more parts numbers, looks like most of the parts are already listed internally but set to be hidden (just not filtered out of the search, lol) pricing is just a placeholder though, not expecting a body to go for <$250.

Yeah, those might disappear soon if they are not quite ready to reveal yet, lol. I saw parts for an F110 SF5 a few months back which quickly disappeared within a day. They still havenít announced the car. Good to see though. I had a feeling Billy was working on something, especially after he invited Ryan Harris to come to a club race at Newredís last year (and told him to bring his wheeler).

Wonder if itís going to be a belt car then?? Since itís carrying the srx moniker. That car was one of Billyís babies and I personally loved it.

Yes, it is belt driven. Look at the bottom right of the setup sheet at

Iím for sure getting one of these. The original was such a great car. My SDX-4 doesnít even come close to the old SRX-4.

So, basically a 2WD rear gearbox + belts going forward? Reminds me of the very first 4WD prototypes. I wonder how the different drive styles between the front and rear behave, with the rear getting a direct gear drive and the front being buffered through two belts. Really interesting concept

It addresses nearly everything that bothered me about the old car. Looks nice on paper. Anxious to see the real thing and some running footage.

Great to see a novel interesting and brave design rather than the current shaft drive dull-a-thon trend. Yawn. This will be getting a good look over by all the industry design engineers! If you can use the entire back end of your successful 2wd that is quite tempting. Wouldn't be surprised if Schumacher tried something similar....Laydown 4wd?! Who wants to try a B6.2 4wd?! The original was a sweet design but it turned up at a time when tracks were all heading high grip, problem was motor rotated in a 4-gear direction, that's never going to be quick on high grip. This resolves that although the design is a little bit less neat. This has the potential to do really well on high grip. If I was in the market I'd probably get one. Looking forward to seeing some proper pics and some track vids.

Ya that's what I was thinking too. Fixed the motor rotation and gets the weight further forward. And shares the entire rear end with the 2wd. That's fantastic if this car works well. I wonder how the weight distribution is front to rear compared to the modern shaft drive cars. Lots of tuning adjustment and looks easy to work on. The LSD slipper option looks to be standard, so that's a nice touch. Hope Billy does a presentation on this and shows us some laps.
