It's very funny when all people used to think Picco are not comparable in performance and quality to Novarossi but when Serpent comes in, everyone are changing opinion and say that Picco are the best now! Wow...

It's also funny that when people think that Picco was a good performance motor now think they aren't becuz they are now with Serpent.

It ended up being a worn out wheel axle.
Yeah..such a shame.But when this car came out it was priced rather low than previous serpents models.Guess they took quality away just to stay competitively priced with other brands.But again G4s are cheaper and better in quality.

As a matter of fact Ive never had the steering problem and for that matter the G4 for me has the most excellent steering layout in an rc car car.I can only guess this is the reason that the car handle so well.

No, I will make novarossi as the least profitable engine to sell in Indonesia so no one will sell them thus no one will use them.. pls watch your inventory level on early November. Since there isn`t any exclusive novarossi distributor in Indonesia, It should not hurt!

As I`m also the owner, seller, and user for both of those car, your statement is TOTALLY wrong, far far wrong.

If you talking about performance, all car capable to achive that with proper balance on all its suspension. If you are talking about quality, in order to make the G4 to Serpent qualilty level, it cost you twice the price of S710.

Mr. Giant.. no offense but this is Serpent Threads

I do not think you`ve to G4 threads longer than on others. Do not get me wrong, I also have no problem with G4 steering but I know those system lack of durability.. otherwise G4 1/2 will not be offered in the near future. It is actually a good sign for all G4 onwner that the creator, TM, cares about customer concerns.

The million dollar question is: when the new yokomo GP car release, does it meant you would give up TM distributorship?

Who's saying Picco engines are good ! They are crap !

Nobody is saying anything yet. Serpent needs to clear the stigma that Picco engines are always associated with. But from preliminary reports, the Mega engines have been good. Look at Michael's recent race report of the LRP race.

Just imagine that for once, a well known crap brand like Smartech teams up with a well known world champion team like Serpent and promises a world champion car... Don't you think that Serpent would take a lot of risk and at the same time risk damaging their reputation? Would you do the same venturing into a business like that taking into account the risk? Think for a while...

Disaster you say. I thought the 705 was a disaster for other cars at that time...

I guess if the 705 was a crap car, then indeed what Julius said is true that it was the Team indeed that made the difference.

Why do people come to the 710 forum and just lie, I guess they got nothing else better to do
