They just haven't added it yet, the kit press release just came out from Serpent so you'll need to give A-Main some time for them to get the kits in and listed on the website.

Serpent's U.S owned/based website Desoto Racing doesn't even have it listed yet.

Desoto has them listed on their site finally.

$639, their running %20 off on this kit till 9/1, brings the price to $511.99 before shipping. Smoking deal.

Can some one tell me what the wheelbase is on this truggy? I have the 811gte on road car that's based on the 811be and wanted to convert it from 330mm wheelbase to the gt2 size around 360 mm. Looks like I can use the e truggy chassis and rear driveshaft.

Serpent released a dedicated etruggy that looks like a pretty solid bit of kit.

I still race mine and love it. Mine is a conversion, picked it up in June. I like the Serpent much more than the Mugen. Serpent did 2 things better in my opinion, 1 Jumps better, more control and 2 the Serpent seems to have more steering. The Mugen is looking for more steering where as the Serpent you dial it out. Both solid rigs though.

The other problem is that outdoor season is on pause till summer. Not to many indoor places can handle a truggy class.
