Well atleast the rear end looks pretty same (shock conf is same as well as the swaybar, maybe some differences on hingepin / wingmount). Front also but hey what's new there since LOSI did their homework. Geometry is something we can't much comment as well as the lay-out on chassis. But as said it will be interesting to see the outcome

Opposite throttle linkage, rear shocks front of the arms, LOSI front. Probably Serpent won't go as extreme with brakes though.

that i highly doubt.
i'm happy to say, i know the durango pretty well and the S8xx's features like throttle servo next to the engine, rear shocks in front mounting position, carb rotated by 180 deg, brake system... all this sounds very familiar.
can't wait, to see it at the toy fair.
