plus, if serpent decides to even release this car, they'll thoroughly test it and put it through its paces. Just like at the 1/8 03 ifmar worlds. Serpent drivers were still running the 950, because the 950R wasn't fully tested yet, it gives me a little more confidence in buying serpent products imo.

Remember 2 years ago I wanted to buy the FG F1. I knew that the big thing can't be hidden,so I took my wife to the hobby shop. Then told her the truth something like that...Honey,can I buy this beauty F1....I only get one word.....NEVER

The only way to keep Veteq owners happy would be to give them their money back...Or a break on a new design car..Serpent did neither..except string everyone along about the future of the Veteq.......Serpent can kiss my butt.......

Why don't they make a update for the 835 to make it a F1 car, seems like there would be alot more 235mm cars out there that have noone to run with.

Marcos, I looked at the video just now after transferring it to the PC and thought I won't post it. The video is just panning a stationary car and because lighting isn't that great it does not look nice.

I've programmed a short article of it to be released tomorrow night with some pictures so take look then.

What I will do with the video though is make one that shows snippets of the Model Expo itself.

Working on it this very minute

Now, an 835 is an excellent idea. 1:10th w ould be better but due to space requirements, they tried it on 1;8th but this will be too big for most tracks.

Hey All


I think the reason Serpent is basing this on the Veteq, is they have a $hitload of parts left over from that REALLY BAD Design... Yea, I'm one of the BoneHeads that got one of the first ones out... I still have nightmares about keeping it setup...hehehe


Great Racing!!!
