Default Choosing 1/10 Pancar. Help!

Hi everyone,

Im trying to decide between 2 used 1/10 pan cars, both more or less in the same condition (very good) so i would like to have your opinion on pros and cons with each one and if there is much different from one to one in terms of performance and spares available, since im quite noob at this.

1)Serpent S100 link-wgt #410051 converted to 235mm
Includes few LMP type bodies and little spare parts + servo + few tires. 150E / 158USD

2)VBC Lightning 10 235mm version
Option A) Includes 1 LMP type body, little spare parts + servo 220E / 232USD
Option B) Includes the same as option 1 plus motor + esc + programming card + few new tires 310E / 327USD

Any other suggestion or recomendation for sure would be much appreciated.

The intended use is outdoor mid grip asphalt and no competition atm, just want to enjoy it and learn, although it would be good to be able to join a race maybe in the future.
Just to note i have a VBC Lightning 12 v2 atm so i was wondering if the lightning 10 has some compatible parts?

Thanks in advance for your time and help

Front end parts, side links, should be the same on the vbc. Personal i like to stick with same brands. If your happy with the vbc you have i would get the vbc. Just my .02

The VBC is a "true" 235mm car (even if the stiffness of the rear pod remains perfectible), more recent than the Serpent and front parts are common with AE, Roche, Xenon,...

Definitely the way to go to enter the category
