RC4: Sorry to hear that you can find that part. I can check if any of our dealers have and let you know. But I would like to clarify something. Serpent or Serpent America is not havien part "issues" like you are saying, it is almos imposible to have all the parts available at the same time. Sometimes they run faster that the speed been produced. The important thing here is to try to help you on this.

I will check if you are interested and let you know later today.

Once again, sorry that you cant' find it initially.

Regards
Edgar

You're getting rid of the car only because you broke a bumper?

RC4:

That reason is not correct. Rigth now all car kits have the same priority. We are continously receiving parts. Also new kits that has been recently boxed.

The 720 is still on production right now and new batched coming out every month. We are working really hard to serve our clients, and you are of those.

While we are out of the 803163 Bumper Plate Lower, I do have a couple of the SER 803156's Nylon sets. They do contain the upper bumper and lower bumper as well as front nylon. This will at least get you back on the track.

I suspect the steering blocks in the kit are 0 deg but are you familiar with "any port in a storm" ?

Yes it will work. It looks that you area a little unfamiliar with serpent brand. I would recomend that if you have a doubt if something work on your car, first look at www.serpent.com , there you can find lot of information about the cars. Also you can download any updates on the manual and look for info on the parts. You can search them with the part number or car.

The kit that Robert mentioned includes also suspension arms

I found the stock bumper to be a little fragile myself. I found buying the outlaw bumper, the real large one and cut it to the same shape as the smaller touring car bumper lasts for ever. I think its more rubbery (little softer) it doesnt crack.
