Opinion on a kit

I am interested in getting a Serpent Impact M2 4wd

I would like pros and cons about this car before I shell out major duketts for it

I like the Design and layoput of this car but I have heard major horror stories about parts support

Thank you for your input

VERY GOOD CAR.MAke sure to get a 7 port Turbo MS .15 with it.The part support was very bad for a while ,i think last year,but its getting better.

I wanted to buy one these cars myself partly because I have a big block .15 in need of a home...then I looked at the cost of replacement parts. Ouch! Guess I'll stick with my NTC3 and morgage payments.
In case your wallet is thicker than mine, I've heard that the Impact is a very good performing car with decent quality.

The Impact is not for the meek. Parts are not hard to find at all. Expensive as hell though. Very nice car but a tire truer will set you back big time along with all the necessary set up tools which are a must have on cars like this. Yes an MS edition engine is a must. I had the EV3 MS and it screamed.

Yeah, noticed Delta didn't really carry much of those parts... What about your LHS?

Wait for the new Mugen thats supposedly coming out?

I think I like Syde's idea better. Go for the FG 1/5th
