your not serious are you??? Have you actually seen the car? If you buy this car you won't need anything else (except for a oneway/spool) there is so much aluminum carbon fiber and springsteel on this car its insane there is probably 20% plastic on this car

but to be honest I was thinking it was going to be like 550 or 600 so I think that price is pretty good!!!!

FYI... I have already seen the car better yet I held the FIRST one in the US in my hands.. again NOT the point. I will say the car is beautiful, but come on in this economy at that price... I owned the 720, Kyosho RRR, Mtx 4, 710, none of which were this pricy. I guess when you really think about it $490 is a "great" deal this is Serpent's attempt at making the most expensive touring car...

That's not a lot considering the quality and ease of this car. Just look at the thought that went into this car for example the eccenter hubs can be seen from the outside of the bulk head so there's no guess if both side are in the same slot. The inergrated middle block with bulk head. There are no competitive sedans out there for a lot less. There are still mtx4's out there close to this price and how old is the car? Also no one is forcing you to buy the car. Its still your choice.

Not to get in the middle of this, however if you look at the other cars online you will find the price about right. I googled the NT1 2009, RRR wc and they are in this price range. They are from $450-$540, depending on where you buy. Who knows how the serpent will be priced depending on where you buy it. Is $490.00 even the actual price??

Just a few more days,

DJ
