Black & Blue = Sirio
Blue + Black Crankcase = JP

I would say Serpent should be using Orange Heatsink + Black Crankcase since Orange are the main colour for them


But if they come out like Orange Heatsink + Purple Crankcase !! ...
We will able to see the engine properly from far instead of the car !! ...

Let guess about this ...

The Orange and Black Crankcase colors has been already taken by RB Concepts Rody Roem Tuned engines so that can't be the color of the new Mega engines

Why not? A different shade of orange perhaps?

Blue heatsink was already adopted by OS engines. Then comes Sirio also with blue heatsinks and now we have JP engines also with blue heatsinks !

Hi,

Looks like Serpent is giving up building engines.
Wath they are going to built isn't a engine. It's a icecream machine!

Their cars rock, but their NovaRossi based engine can't beat the JP and R&B, the picco based Mega can't probebly even beat a OS max!

I don't see why not....If the carb leaks (and the motor runs lean) like every other POS picco based engine I've seen,the motor will be plenty fast....

Interesting comments by NovaRossi on their site this morning. There's much more to this story than we know about.
