Like I said, strong rumours that the pics will trickle in on myTSN starting next week.

To be honest, although I'm dying to get my hands on the car, I think Serpent will not release it to the general public until they have tested it to the fullest. My "Far East" source said that they will not be able to get the kits until after July.

I'll be at the EFRA GP next month but I think all I'll see there is still the prototype rather than the production version. If there ARE any production kits around at the time you can bet I'll be sneaking into the Serpent factory the night before the GP and steal one!


Hehe, far east for you or far east for 'us', and what's far?
Hope to see you at the EFRA GP!

Just guessing here but ... you may have to wait and see if the CVDs fit. If not, I'm sure Serpent will release just the dog-bone side to allow you to use the rest of the CVDs in the new car.

No idea about the other bits you're asking about.

If the diffs are reusable.. the CVD's would be too.. 200mm still is 200mm

Well, i'm not sure, but the guy who painted nearly all the serpent body's is Maarten P. (Potje once on this forum). He worked at serpent but now only does some painting jobs....
