There's only a short listing for Hudy or Xray on the Serpent-USA website.

That is correct. Serpent USA will no longer be the U.S Distributor of Xray and Hudy. I believe that Horizon has been carrying the product line for several months now. I hope that they don't end up being the exclusive!! Has anyone seen the ridiculous prices on their website?

I am surprised that Serpent USA hasn't come out with a statement on their website about this. I'm sure Serpent USA didn't choose to do this by choice.

Serpent didn't post anything on their website.they just removed all references to Hudy, or Xray except for the handful of items that they are selling in the *Closeout* area.....

Well if you guys need anything we,KT Hobbies still have access to Hudy and X-ray lines so supplies shouldn't get too depleted. We might not have all the items in stock but they can or are orderable in a relatively short time frame.

I think they are concerned about the alternatives offered by other manufacturers.

I heard that was the case. When can we expect the Dudy range of cars to hit the shelves.

Can I preorder one. If they are as built to the standard of there other items they will be hard to beat. Want to get in before the rush.

I just dropped them an email asking to become a sole distributor for Europe, North America and Asia. They should receive a Nobel Price for their genius products.
BTW, the SUS Station will definetely become a hit and a must have item.

I think its great news.......

Makes the products available to ANY hobby shop that deals with Horizon....Offers HUDY a wider path of distribution(alot of LHS's don't want to deal with Serpent).......

AND,maybe gives HUDY a chance to make a nitro touring car..without hearing any BS..or getting any competion from Serpent.......and if HUDY makes a tourer,that will be nail on some mfg's coffins.........

That wouldn't be a bad news at all, since he know well enough about X-ray and Serpent............by looking at the X-ray FT T1, I am surprised to know that X-ray does not have a nitro touring on the drawing board yet.......

They quality of the FT is amazing.........if that is on NITRO TC, I will be there.......

Just hope their service is not as "GOOD" as Serpent USA.
