2. the metal parts have threads which are filled with metal flash from the factory threading process... a little extra work for the builder who has to clean up the threads first before screwing in the screws....

3. the machining of some of the parts are a bit poor... one of my diff internal gears had a center hole a wee bit too small to slot the bevel gear shaft in... i needed a small dremel to free things up... i am paying European brand prices so the china factory ought to be best of the lot and make the parts put together flawlessly....

4. the suspension arms and joints seem very stiff... prolly need some running in to get the parts moving smoothly but if the other brands can get it smooth right from the start, serpent ought to get it close....



anyway... hope it runs fast at the track... that could be the saving grace....
is the car really made in china???? from my understanding the car is made in Europe.

I just weighted the car with body and lipo and the way you see it in the photo. It was 1720. I am sure with nomal tires it will be just right.
