Well, sort of. They still have an office in the Netherlands but production is done outside of NL. The Designer is German and also somebody from Austria.

Although i still consider serpent to be 'dutch' (as i am dutch), technically there isn't much 'dutch' left...

I dont know the exact ins- or outs but I expect that Serpent is more a trade name than a company. There are two companies here in Holland that are taking care of development and marketing but they are not called "Serpent"

Dont understand me wrong.

Those kind of details, most don't even know about....

Just like Nike they don't make shoes either, they develop them and let them be made by a shoes manufacturer, and then the one who makes them the cheapest....

I even believe, Mugen works exactly the same...

Yes shure, just like a lot of stuff out of our sport / hobby.
I even think that there are only 2 or 3 foam producers for our tires.

Yes it looks like adjustment is done by way of the slide on top.

Jilles and I tested the car last week in Turkey. The track had medium traction and the car was great. I look forward to its release.
