These are just things I was wondering about. It does not change the fact that I will be buying a couple of these monsters.

I am glad serpent stuck with dogbones. Many people here know how much I love them!

Orange stuff would always be cool (engine mounts, shock collars, and, oh yes, the chassis! ). I get tired of the same ol' purple and blue.
I normally don't buy parts for my cars just because of color though.

I know we are overloading you with questions, you need to get away from the "rookie" label anyway.
Is there overdrive built into the car, or is the ratio a flat 1? It would be nice to see a lot of pulley options to mess around with that sort of thing.
Also, as I cannot quit looking at the pics, is a hollow 2 speed shaft standard, because it appears to be hollow in the pics.

Also, I did know the difference between "break" and "brake," I swear . I am just going on about 30 minutes of sleep from last knight, I mean night, not because of the serpent news, but because I am in collage, I mean college, and had a couple of test, I mean tests, today.
No problem, just ask, this is what I am for!!

Sorry, no hollow two speed shaft !

The overdrive ratio is 1!

Hey, if 30 minutes sleep produce such posts....what about not sleeping at all?! I would like it....LOL...!

what about an OD option will a pulley exist. It would be nice to OD the car some Some guys have experimented with this on son otrher manufacturers cars with good results I here. It would be nice to be able to balance the F/R tire wear as sedans are notorious for blistering the rear tires to a crisp.

Agreed. Lee is the best out there, as far as I am concerned.
