its hard to really see anything, but why test another car when you just released a new car only a few months before?

In the serpent web they are calling it "4-X" I am asuming that we might have some better photos during this weekend ETS as they are talking that it will be released by end June

Excellent!

I love the ball cup adjustability of camber and easy cast adjustment with the clips. Looks sweet. Order is in!

Not sure if it will be fast, but a very interesting design. Great to see some new ideas.

Already shot this in October 2015. They were testing this new prototype in the Netherlands. Looks very fast.

RedRC said it's a "pull rod" suspension, and FastFred said "push rod", which is it actually? I'm trying to zoom in on the photos but they get grainy. I'm trying to see the mechanics of it, but it's unclear. Car looks cool though...
