HEY there: Yes this is a great pick up for Serpent and along with another just signed driver Mat Flurer they are building a solid team for off road. With their growing off road team how soon can we expect to see other vehicle releases in their expanding 1/10th off road line? Also with only a 2wd buggy out so far what will the team be using in the meantime? Thanks

It's Max Flurer. The next vehicle in the 1/10 line will be the mid motor 2wd buggy followed closely by the 2wd SCT. The 1/10 4wd buggy will hopefully be out around the end of the year.
