I dont think there is even a prototype yet. After the sct the Stadium truck will be released then they will work on the wheeler. Maybe the end of the year.

IMO the wheeler should come before ST. But I understand releasing the whole srx2 line together.

All I can say is the truck is awesome, Billy can drive it almost as fast as his buggy, it has the best steering I have ever felt in a sct the testing is moving along very smoothly it's about 85% setup and should be on the market very soon

I am almost positive billy said there are no plans for a ST right now, and the wheeler would be after the SCT.

I think you are misinformed. It was announced quite a while ago.

Hmm, indeed I was, I was talking to Mike yesterday who has been helping with tuning and testing the SCT, and he says it is the best one he has driven, tons of steering.

Since there were no mod sct's at scrc Saturday, he ran it in the 4x4 sct class and lapped the whole field twice

We all know how good the Spyder is and the SC looks very similar. It just has longer arms,different chassis,and larger shock towers. Plus the other SC specific items like body mounts,side rail,and bumpers. Im sure its gonna handle extremely well and be very durable. I wouldnt mind running some Mod SC again.

Is Serpent planning a MM version for the SCT too or just RM?

Just rear motor,Sct isn't as big as it used to be and not worth while to design 2 trucks.the big market for these trucks will most likely be the rtr version. We also noticed through testing that the sct also has a greater weight balance over the front end compared to a buggy which is why sct's have great steering and you have to work for traction and I think a mid motor truck makes it worse

Billy also made quite a few changes to the suspension geometry to optimize the suspension for the larger wheel and tire size, they look very similar and share a lot of parts, but this truck is gonna be a step above the competition
