I wouldn't expect it until the very end of this year/early next year.

Serpent has too many irons in the fire right now. They're releasing three varaitions of their 811 Cobra buggy.
  1. Truggy
  2. BL buggy / possibly GT also
  3. Buggy based GT

Roll that into further promotion of the 811 nitro buggy as they're still aquiring more team members to promote that platform and they've got more than they can handle for now.

I won't expect the Serpent electric TC to show up any time until maybe Summer 2011.

If I can stock up on arms, c- hubs and knuckles then I think I will be ok with the old S-400. Maybe some driveline parts too. Wait a minute. What are they changing again?

I would guess that development of the S401 would be second nature for these guys and will follow its natural course in due time. Then again I also am just an RCtech er.

Yes it is just an opinion.

Here's something more to think about. As well all know, the Serpent kits are designed by Serpent NL but are made in China. The Chinese don't take any breaks except for Chinese New Year which lasts throughout the month of February.

Scenario 1
If designs are finalized before the end of the year, then production can start in January for shipment just before the holiday begins in February. The kits can either be airfreighted which would add to its costs or sit in a container on a boat for 1 month before reaching the distributor. This would result in kits being available by mid March to April 2011

Scenario 2
The design doesn't get finalized until late January. This leaves no time for production before the holiday break and production will not commence until around mid march when the factories get back into the swing of things after being out for a month long holiday. Shipment may not happen until mid to late April and depending on airfreight vs. sea freight, the kits won't be available until early May to June. (Hence Summer 2011)

What can affect finalization of the design?
It all depends on how the product is QC'd. If they trust their Chinese counterparts on the QC of the product meeting the designer's specs then production can just get cracking. If however, QC is done at Serpent NL then it takes time for first article production samples to be sent to Serpent NL for approval.

I would imagine Serpent will have someone in China to oversee production.

That would make sense. Instead of shipping a bunch of kits over for inspection, just fly one or a few people to China to oversee production.
