I have been emailing Serpent distributors around the world looking for S400 gear diffs for the last 4,5 months.
My email was forwarded to Serpent themselves and i got the following reply in the beginning of September.

"It's a shame that they where so long not avalible, but they are coming soon.
They will be available (the geardiffs) in about one week from our office in Hong Kong.
So they can be orderd from Serpentasia.

Hope to have informed you enough.

Thanks

Best regards,

From that reply it looks like they have and are set up in Asia now and have started getting product out.
Expect the website to be changed soon and a announcement made.
serpentasia.com goes to current serpent site.

Still with no official statement from the Parent company of Serpent or whatever that might becoming, it seems that that there might be more going on or not going on then anyone knows. Is the owner of Serpent waiting for some distributor here in the USA to make the statement for them? In the mean time Serpent continues to loose market share? What a shame from such a wonderful RC car manufacturer.
Seems like this guy is really affected by Serpent's Change. How about wall street? .......................... It's a Hobby Dude! Chill!

i think we need to realize that the Dutch Labor laws are different than in the US. i believe that in Holland an employer can't just 'layoff' an employee for 'elimination of position' like in the US.

i suspect that this whole episode while sad for the dutch employees, is all just a legal manuever to allow them to relocate jobs without having to keep staff in the Netherlands with no work assignment. my 2cents.

What is the hurry to know the situation of Serpent? There are still many distributors out there that still have parts. I have not yet come up to have trouble finding parts for my two cars.

I know the new president behind Serpent America and I know first-hand that the merchandise is already arriving. As I said before, I know much more than this, but I cannot disclose anything yet. Why? Because it is not something announced officially by the brand.

So sit tight and relax...

"Anticipation of death is worst than death itself!"

Let's just keep racing. Stay off the boards and not focus on what could happen. Serpent says that it will be back on track, so lets not freak out like the stock market.

I didn't buy the Veteq because it's an engineering masterpiece( which it's NOT, BTW....).........

I bought the veteq because Serpent assured me this was the car they were gonna support.....and not only did they lie about that, but they DROPPED all support after they introed the new car......


And buy the way, VRC does suck......What a coincidence that peter B is behind both.....

What he should have done is licence the VRC concept to get it out on the 360....I wrote and told him that when he first started the VR series....


the man could be printing money right now...
