I have been taking pre-orders since 2nd week of June, and as I mentioned in my other post I was surprised for the amount of pre-orders I am receiving, Brooklyn Hobbies will also be carrying the parts for the 733.

Pre orders are already being taken. Kamikaze and Ashfordhobby both carry great selection of serpent parts so you can't go wrong with either one.

are we allowed to know the pre order price or the price we will pay?

Kami your site says it is $999.99

I don't want to pre order something without knowing a final price.

You can ask Serpent-Dan on how the pre-order works, the site shows $999.99 which is the list price, that is why it shows out of stock!

After Pete showed me the pics of the 733, I told him thats the car for me. Love it, can't wait to see it now. I hope DJ has one at the Kraceway race next month.

I should have it by then. Based on emails back and forth with Serpent I should have my car within the next 14 days. We will see. If I get it maybe I will post pics of the built in steps with any tips I see fitting to mention. I am tring to have it ready for the Club race in Fort Myers also, which is before Kissimmee. This way I can test on 2 different tracks.

Fingers crossed,

DJ Apolaro

DJ:

Have they figured out what will be the "standard" setup (sheet) or they are still testing and figuring out to provide help, setups, etc?

Do they discussed with you about settings, etc or just had an overview chat of the car and specs?

What are your personal observations of the car? Any comparison you can provide after driving the car vs the 720?

Serpent has always had great support for their cars, and I strongly doubt that they'll be willing break that tradition. Setups, I am also 100% positive that ALL of the team drivers will share theirs. DJ being Key, has yet to lead me a stray, shoot he even assisted me with NON -Serpent products. Don't tell him I said that

take a look at this RCTECH record

People expect change, evolution and innovation, Serpent has IMO never been lacking in that department. Just think how boring F1 would be if the cars all stayed the same , Shumacher would have had, what like 12 world champs!!!

The car is DAMN SEXY, would I trade it for a girl..no But fact still remains it's SEXY

Not just sexy.. it looks so easy to wrench it, besides being "different" from the other cars. I think sedan really needed this "lift".
Now, if only Serpent would come out with a new electric sedan as well!

I think they will provided a set up based on all the feed back they get from all the drivers and what Michael actually feels when he tests. I will make sure to do some test and come up with a good starting point. When I do, I will post it for those that want. I will also try the one that comes with the kit to let you how it works for us in the USA. Sometimes our tracks require something different that the Euro style track.

Personally I think the 733 looks great. Working on it was pretty easy, as the areas in the front and rear are pretty open. I can not give a real opinion to compare to the 720, only because I did not try them back to back on the same track. I only drove the 733 in Turkey. I will say it felt like it had awesome corner speed. I always feel with my 710 or 720, that I have to enter turns slow to carry corner speed and have a quick exit. With this car it just entered very easy and carried the speed all the way through. Maybe this is good? Since my first car was a 710 and then the 720, I developed a style of driving that was good for the 720. I hope I can handle all the steering of the new car.

Stay tuned,

DJ Apolaro
