I sure hope you're right. I am not a fan a forward cab stuff, but I will take whatever they put on it.

Well, they can't do any worse than Durango. I think it's the most frustrating brand in history

crazy that im saying this but .....the ve8 truns and handles so good if set up right ...being that the serpent has a flip motor in the front and everything stuffed into the front with the dual 2s nice and neat in the rear ...i just have to think this thing is just going to be a world beater in eletric 8th scale ....i always wanted to try a ve8 after driving one ...but couldnt pull the trigger because of wear and tear and parts replacement ...the serpent will have the same quality everything as the s811 i think we are in for a treat

The Serpent is one of the most durable and least wearing cars out there. No slop developes in anything, unlike Losi or AE cars that get slop in only a few runs. The main weakness in the car is the stock bearings don't hold up well. Stock up on Avid or Tekno bearings and you'll be fine. The original wing mounts were weak, but the V2 ones hold up great. Boil the stock wing in water for 20 min or so and it won't break as easily. Or switch to a JC wing.

If the wing is the only problem

I'm coming from a 808 2009 that I converted and I feel quite concerned about the bearings because I had many problems with them in my diff cases. Is it as annoying as on the 808?

I've absolutely no doubt about Serpent making great cars, look at what they do for onroad beasts. They are "serious about racing" (does that sound like Durango )

Yes it is. I'm all Xray and a really good friend of mine has been running the 811 for about a year, that car is a tank. If I were going to switch from Xray, it would be for a Serpent. Great cars, very well thought out, and they last.
