It might be easier to always keep rears moving gradually towards COR.

What does this have to do with the Serpent FWD?

I think he reacted in the wrong topic. Guess this is about WTCC's project.

After the wireless ESC, now we have the receiver-less car! lol
I imagine the guy preparing the car for the marketing pictures: "Ok guys, can I put the receiver on the servo? No, no, we must see the beautiful Dash servo! Ok, but... Don't bother, they won't notice it..."

Huh? Isn’t that a receiver standing up behind the motor in these pictures? Or are you referring to other marketing pictures that have been released?

Anyway, nice to see that they finally made details of the car public. It was mentioned rather briefly about a month ago on Red RC, but with no pictures nor any corroboration from the Serpent website. I am curious about the front bumper area, which seems a little “beefier” than the original 4WD X20 with that honeycomb plate.

No that's a motor fan.

OK, the price is actually quite a bit cheaper than we thought!

It looks like you could maybe put the fan in front of the motor and the receiver behind it. With the new breed FWD bodies, this car might be really fun to run in the USGT class against the 4WD's.

Not a fan of mid motor frontie but this is a great idea more of a frontie ,the motor in a real fwd is just in front or just behind the front axle . this is more like it and without moving the steering rack to the front it’s a great compromise
