I must be lucky then, because the place I race at, the owner only stocks Serpent parts. And that is another reason I intend to purchase one of these in the near future.

Novarossi has tried everything to gain some more speed but his still .4 off the pace
its even resulted to him looking at the xray NT1 as he knows he will be faster out of the box

thats the funny thing. some have absolutely no problems with the car, its pace, its drivability, but yet some just have problem after problem. i would have been just as fast with the 733 at the Nats, if not faster then with the KM. so it goes to show its not the car. any of the new platforms are all very capable, but it depends on the prep,and how you drive the car. 7th was looking safe at the Nats, but i always was thinking about that tiny battery in the KM, and as it was, at 38 min mark, it went into failsafe. i just wish designers could adapt a real battery in some of these new cars, as the 733 , Nt1 and some others have.

I think it is fair to say there are plenty of good platforms to choose from. Some chassis just fit a person better than another. That does not make one better or worse. Whenever there are choices in the market, people will have different opinions. Thats what makes the open market so great. JMO

A lot of times it just comes down to support in a racers area or on the web.

Total flakes. These people belong in the car of the month club. They'll never stick to anything at any time.
