I read an interesting article where they stated that nearly every Serpent driver at the recent World Champs here in Sydney refused to drive the VETEQ and opted for the Vector NT because it was too difficult to setup.
Michael Salven was the only driver running the VETEQ who managed the make th main final.
If its your first 1/8th car, I'd probably suggest the Vector instead.

Default WHY??

You firgure that with SOOO much time, money and research invested that the Veteq would be the car to drive. In fact I also heard (on this board or TSN) that the Veteq was being disonctinued because of problems... from what I gathered that car was designed in all CAD (Pro E to be exact). Pro E, will slamm autocad any day...

You figure with all the R&D it would be a kickin' car...


Hmmmmm

I saw one on EBAY few weeks back that had I believe a NT chassis on it. With all that stress I would guess the chassis gets tweaked easily. Next year im going with a NT if they dont come out with something new.

Got speed
you notice that their is a new 21 Nova mega engine out!! The Evo5, Look at the case, Its super thick in the crankcase area. If you can guess why you win the booby prize. It has to do with that car you mentioned in the above thread.

OK it's because the Veteq has weak lateral/twisting strength so Novarossi had to thicken the case walls to keep it from distorting since Serpent wisely decided to use the engine as part of the chassis structural integrity.

Now where's my booby prize Motorman? Well I'll just take one of your engines then.
