As to the anodized components, can you provide further clarification as to which items are to be anodized orange???

It does appear the front end, center shock, rear upper supports, and rear pod are all anodized orange, although as mentioned above just wanted to confirm.

Thanks Alex!

For lipo there will be molded plastic inserts that go into the battery slots, you then servo tape your battery to them like lipo weights for a tc. Servo tape them, battery front or back, then you can flip the battery around for forward or rear battey position. We did this because all the lipos are different sizes and its impossible to make a tray that fits everyone perfectly.

I think all the aluminum parts will be available Black, Grey and Orange. Not sure about the shocks.

The original kit came with 10, from 0 to 4mm in .5 increments. I dont know for certain but it would make sense that those would be a carryover from the original car. The new car is just as pretty as the first but with the new saddle lipo on the horizon I'll save some money and keep my t-bar version.

The kit looks real nice. I def like the rear pod better than the 5.1 pod. I think it may be a bit heavier than the 5.1 pod due to all the aluminum.

You can pre-order at tqhobbies.com

Like Paul said the price should around $250.00 which would be cheaper than the price of the T-Plate version which usually sells for $269.00 retail.

Serpent says they will be available mid December but realistically probably around January sometime.

My Lord Bob Stormer,

I must say that your grace has surely blessed this thread. My 9th born shall be born of your name.

Will there be a conversion kit available for the current S-120? It looks like a lot of parts are the same, except for the chassis and link components.

I really want to sell my S-120. It is unassembled and still in its box.
