I've heard (and seen) some features too but all that was nearly a year ago and I get the impression the final product will most likely be different to what I know in the end.

With the Velox and Motonica about to release theirs, I imagine Serpent would react in a certain way as to what will change (or not) in the new car. Just guessing tho ...

You're not on the inside dawg, let it go.
No actually rx7ttlm is right if you go like 10 or 15 pages back in the serpent 720 forum dj told us that he ran the 720 09 and said salven was testing new parts at the winter nats that might be going in the new serpent when it comes out

He never said anything about a 721, he could have been talking about the 720 09 having new parts as options.

Hey guys,

I have been watching this go back and forth and was just thinking to myself should I get involved or not. I really do not want to get to involved with this, but I will say that I ran the 720 09' for the Winternats. Salven was testing items that may possible be used on the NEW car, not just the 720 09'.

Surely everyone can understand it is a process and some things will or will not make it to the production of the new car. Some of it was durability testing, as the performance of something on the current car will not be the same as the NEW car. There are do many things be changed on the NEW car and it would not be fair to say that a test will go the same on 2 completely different platforms. That is like taking something from a K car and trying it on the X car and thinging you will get the same results.

I am glad to see talk starting to come about the NEW car. No one is more ready than I am for something new. I think the 720 is over 3 years old.
Good luck racing and have fun.

DJ Apolaro

Exactly! What I heard was that the new knuckels might be a running change to the 720 09. I know what he was driving, I was sitting right behind him, where were you?

dj- yeah, we have seen good things with the 720. I kinda got tired of getting beat by them lol. So I was thinking about making the jump to serpent and thought the new car might be a good time to do so. Can't wait for it to be released.

cheers

The 720 09' has the same plastics as the 08'

Hopefully what DJ said will stop all the back and forth stuff cause people are making a big deal about I saw it first no I did. It doesn't matter most of us will get the car about the same time when its released. I'm sure Serpent will give us another wonderful car for the others to follow.
