That one-piece rear pod is much better than the one from old skool Bolink.

Oh man that pod is like RC PORN! wow!


But still with the AE ride height axle holders... i really hate those things. I sure wish there was some quick easy way to dial in ride height. I used to hate trying to find the right plastic part only to install it upside down the first time around... Woudl so cool to just take a 2mm hex and screw in 2 screws to raise and lower the axle

I have worked there so I know how they work and besides of that: let them make it to the A main of big event such as the Worlds and then we are talking.
I have raced the Impact for them, so know them very well.

Hehe *lol* maybe thats the reason why you do not work anymore there??
Is the Snowbirds not a big race?? Come on man....whats wrong with you?

Concerning the ride height adjustments rear, they won't be AE style....its an excenter you just turn to adjust ;-)

I was wondering with the one piece rear pod- I had my old Delta's 1/12th and 1/10th with one piece rear pods.When they got hit in the rear and bent the pod you had to replace the whole pod. I hope they think about that before they release them.It looks good but when you have to replace pods it's going to be pricey?

After just recently signing with Serpent I am very excited about the new Serpent 120. I know first hand that there are some amazing innovations incorporated into this design and that its design was at least in part an idea from a very successful driver...


Looking forward to representing Serpent along with Billy, Markus, and Bart!

I remember CRC making one piece aluminum pods quite a few years back. I think racers stayed away from them because they would bend too easily. It'll be interesting to see how these pods hold up. But I do have to say very cool looking pod.

ahh, where would the internets be without all the keyboard chassis engineers to critique everything before they even see it?

i'm surprised companies even come on here to promote their stuff anymore...

Many of our current electric drivers are excited about the new car.

Expect to see it take a tour soon at some of the big races in the US.
