I really don't see any similarities with the TC5..

Its a very nice design and it is very similar to the HB Cyclone.
It also uses Cyclone's suspension arms, suspension blocks and also the bulkheads look very similar although a bit different in style.

The belt car is the actuall car.

Negative on that count. Serpent and Xray are NOT the same company. Xray did some work for serpent before but that is no longer the case.

Results don't lie.And niether do release dates.

As was posted here earlier, the car has a strong resemblance to an HB car. Looks like Rafael is doing a decent job with it so far. We got a chance to see it and race against it here in South Fla.... The car is a tank!! Very durable looking.....
