Why? What has Xray EVER done that was radical? NOTHING. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking them for that, I actually agree with his reasoning about it completely but if you are looking for radical and innovative, look at another company. If you want reliable, fast, proven and high quality, this will be a good choice.

The Serpent has been like that for a few years already, at least since the 960.

Even the 720 had it...

The NT1 has it, but with a 1.5mm hex wrench... But if you are not careful, the thread can strip very easily, thats why for the 1/8th they went with a slotted ARB.

Am I the only one sees a lot more serpent on this? except that slotted front anti-roll bar, front bumper and body mount and steering knuckles and most of the rear parts (although they are more like 960 instead of 966). Anyway, only a few hours left for the real pics!!
