Hmm .. I think you might be right. I thought it was anti-squat/dip. Now I'm cooonnfoooosed!

All those PRECIOUS Hudy spring steel stuff wasted on that car ! I don't know how many outdrives can be made with one buggy's worth of Hudy springsteel.
I'm with you on that one, Prophet Bro!! But Hudy have distanced themselves from Serpent big style Is this a sign that they are going to produce a Nitro tourer - natural step, really. Having said that, a lot of the guys want a 1:12th pan car from Hudy.

Which spacer is this? Caster clips?

No one mention about silver one piece monoblock engine mount that has been cut (including the engine mounting lips) to clear the chasis cooling hole underneath?

Something might be different in terms of cooling holes position but I might be wrong since I do not have a chance to see my car for almost 3 weeks by now

Yep that is my fear Mark,

They have distanced themselves and now the buggy, the natural step is to release a tourer

It is a shame for us serpent guys is my opinion.

Why else would you have hudy steel outdrives on a 705 and then go backwards and release these problem outdrives with a new car, that have caused everyone grief

It would have made sense to release the hudy one's with the kit

Yes. The monoblock looks silver. Perhaps it's still prototype because if you go to mytsn, they say that they have two version of the monoblock. One for the Nova type design and the other would be for the new Mega engines.
