Default New Serpent 1/10 200mm Sedan? PICS FROM THE CHICAGO HOBBY SHOW!.

This is a pic from the Serpent booth at the Chicago Hobby Show, it appears to be an Impulse, but why would Serpent have an Impulse at the Chicago Hobby Show?

uhhh... Maybe it's just me, but that looks like a StreetSpec with a couple of upgrade parts.

A friend who went to the Chicago Hobby Show took the picture and e-mailed it to me earlier tonight.

are there any good pics of the 705?

Heck, Serpents' web site shows only one picture of the 705
Nothing from the side, bottom, front, rear, ect...

I would think that it would be some truth about that pic like what Paul mentioned. Beside the car list the 705 specs...

Perhaps Serpent USA was trying to give a lowdown on the evolving car and out them side by side... Or perhaps Serpent USA just had this extra car and wanted to fill up the remaining space !

One pic only? Perhaps you're looking in the wrong section. Look here at the gallery section for the other pics of the car on mytsn.

There isn't a new car comming. They are just selling the impulse pro as a ready to run car, and I believe that they are going to sell it for under 199 dollars. This is what was told to my lhs owner at the dealer day.

Yeah. Just like the Excel, Vector, Veteq, Veteq02 were not coming out. Serpent say that same line every year. And every year they still manage a new car of some description.

Even the 705 was the worst kept secret ever.

That is "Impulse 4wd Pro Street Racer- 1/10 Sedan Car Kit".

"Street Racer"

This kit is more like the Pro but no front and rear anti-roll bars, no shock towers and comes with rubber tires....
