sorry i meant the two screws seems too close together, giving the impression of a pivot point...not sure if serpent wanted some kind of chassis flex of some sort.

Serpent has been working on this car for 3 years, one of the reasons it took so long they did not want to release something they would have to go back and fix later, and they didnt want to just through out another buggy! I think Billy took some of the ideas that Serpent had on the board and added his own as well! I currently race for Serpent on onroad but i race offroad as well, im not trying to speak for the company but i think this car will make some noise in the market! I can not wait to build and race one, it has alot of great ideas that i have not seen in a production car!

good points they make. i never thought about the carb issue with the OS style carbs.

im wondering if all these changes are practical, or just change for the sake of change?

No wonder when they have a designteam working on it for three years

I trust Serpent to be smart, and quality minded, so I'm really looking forward to see the actual car.

No worries

That reverse carb linkage deal I am pretty sure is all Billy Easton. I remember reading some old magazines and looking at some pics of his winning cars and I noticed that the slide was pushed open rather than pulled. I think that magazine is 7-8 years old!!

yea the reverse linkage setup is interesting, but i really think that will help the servos last for a long time.

You bet

Car design looks desperate (2nd time I've said it, which I'm happy to )

Who need OS engines anyway? Nova +4 is better. LOL ( 5year OS junkie)

I think the car looks good but sadly, the Norwegian importer is the is not the best... we have in the buisness here, thats why i do not suppert Xray or Serpent.

The barrel on the carbs might be worn out. That was the issue many years ago.

Happy new year

No problem, solve it like with a old citroen - custom tools for EVERYTHING!
And like old citroens, different, for originality

I'm sure it pans out with the production model.... I hope.
