What are the advantages of the flex control rear end and are Serpent the first to develop such a system?

There is not a clear advantage , it is used to tune how the car will react and feel on the track, on some tracks it will be a advantage, it will also absorb
and control some of the vibration

according to serpent.com

- Serpent Flex Control rear end
- delrin bushings to capture the rear anti-roll bar bearings
- delrin bushings to capture the 2-speed shaft bearings
- ventilated, lightweight mono-disk brake now standard
- 3mm rear anti-roll bar wire type standard

Who says it creates vibration? That's nonsense.

At the Worlds track last week, the two dominant cars were aluminum cars. Paolo's Serpent 966 was the quickest car and turned 15.8 sec laps.

Guys people from brands post stuff about vibration on the alloy cars. Cause their car has plastic bulkheads. If you never owned a car with the alloy bulk heads how can you go saying things about it! I have owned and run both the 733 and 966 if you build your car properly there is no issue!! Come on MS has been doing this too long to make a car that would suffer from vibration issues. It's all trash talk from people.

What's with all the anger? I was asking because I didn't know. I have been trying to find the results for the race. I like plastic but it seems that alu is the future. It works on the 966, velox and now the mrx5. However you do know that was collari first time at that track he will be much faster next time. Robert tqed at the 2009 worlds but no one can match collari for 60 mins. By the way I brought my little cousin a 966 this year for his birthday. I have brought a 966 and a 733 within the last year they are good Cars i just run something else. Plus it is all in fun it good for the sport to have so many cars in the field. It would be boring if everyone drove the same car this years worlds will be interesting it would be nice for a US driver to win. I know lamberto and kyosho are tried of winning.
