Tell Klaus I will be sending an email, as I need his address to send him something.

what is up DJ ? you came home with one Hudy tuning driver too many ? hahaha
very easy to do

just one thing, i see on the cad drawings on the serpent site, the new engine mount, i noticed it has a solid section on the chassis, with possible stiffness settings ? and the top part of the mount is on the engine, so you can slide the engine back and forth with the screw from the top. was there any options for the stiffners on the lower section of the engine mount. cheers, Patto.......

I will check for the tuning driver. I have not even unpacked yet. You are correct about the stiffeners for the motor mount and how they work. It is very easy to do and can be done in the pits with screws on the spot. We tested it back to back with Jilles and the handeling difference could be noticed. It will be a great tuning option and very easy.

Later,

DJ Apolaro

Glad You had a good time DJ. Thank you for the Clutch setup seminar you gave. It was real good.

DJ was very busy during the weekend due to 2 classes but he did get a well deserved podium finish. And finishing 2 laps behind Robert is no easy task.

Congrats DJ. and Hope to see you again in Bursa.

Nice work DJ. Proud to have a class act like you representing us aboard.

I saw sedans run for the first time in 2 years at the Kamikazi race last month. I could not believe how fast the sedan motors have gotten. So it is nice to see that Serpent has a new chassis designed to harness the power.

Hi Guys, we are very excited about the release of the new car. We have being told that the car should be out late July. So plenty of time to test it before the Nats.
Price has not being released yet from the Factory, but we expect to have it next week. At the moment all we know is that the part# is 804000

We are getting a lot of orders. We are going to service the orders on a first come first serve basis. So if you are interested in the cars, make sure you contact your local LHS.
