[QUOTE=Team Kamikaze]Dough,
When you guys said the 720 will be out by 1st week of July does it mean the hobby shops will have it by 1st week of July or hobby shops still have to wait till it got shipped to them which might be 1 more week...you know from East coast to West coast usually takes a week.[/QUOTE
Trying to pinpoint a specific day and precise hour and minute when the Serpent 720's will arrive in the US is not an exact science. We have forwarders, airline schedules, brokers, US Customs and also the 4th of July holiday that can determine the actual delivery date to Serpent USA.

The following scenario is what we hope will happen. The Factory will need to ship kits no later than June 28th for Serpent USA to be able to ship kits the 1st week of July. We also have a very patriotic USA holiday on July 4th, that will delay clearing US Customs by at least one or two days. A realistic ship date to authorized Serpent dealers will be a day or two after the 4th of July.

Normally we try to ship the West Coast first, then the Midwest and then the East Coast so that all shops usually receive their kits around the same time.

no word yet with our distributor here if and when the new 720 will arrive also no info yet if the car will have both the diffs or the one ways very much tempted to order from Hongkong only problem is the cost of shipment plus the customs and taxes that i have to pay here which when totalled might be able to buy another new 720

Absolutely, no reason to do that...........but how about this, get yourself and your wife a ticket to travel to HK for a week, then bring back 4 lugguage of 720 back to Phillipine and sell them.........but warning, KWS (the street full of RC stores, Games, Computers and real car performance shop) can easily make you bankrupes mulitple times....consider yourself warned.
