This looks awesome, might have to get one, would be great for smaller tracks like the local Hobbytown here.

I personally won't count on anywhere adding the class, I've just wanted a small form factor TC for a while since the sportwerks recoil and xray M18 pro both got discontinued.

Itís nice, but holy cow, they went all out on the race technology, Iím guessing that someone somewhere must be racing these competitively, because itís certainly priced as such.

Anyone notice that they also released a 40th Anniversary RTR version of the S240 Ď21?

One of these days we just need to say "This weekend is Open Mini. Bring your cool cars." That said, the M07 and M08 are full on touring cars.... I have a MG Evo that I want to throw down sometime.

As I have posted in other forums, for the price of the Serpent you can buy a FWD and a 4WD from say...Xpress, and still have money left over.
It's a cool concept, but at the projected price I can't see too many takers.

Isn't the point of m class that it's supposed to be a more affordable entry to racing than tc? That's some crazy pricing.
