Looks very very nice, I really wish onroad was stronger in my area. I have only ever had one Serpent product in my R/C racing years (Impulse) and it was the car that started it all for me, I would most certainly buy this car if onroad was to pick up again.

Looks great guy's

Patto,

it's funny cause many customer were pushing Serpent to go away from the RCCX shocks and go to a more conventional shock design. Anyway the good news is that the RCM shocks are really good. Super easy to build and fill. Super smooth action and consistent performance. I believe in a bumpy track they actually give you an advantage.

In any case, Serpent is the only brand that will offer both type of shocks, so i guess will depend on the customer preference.

Regarding the car, i have to say that i am really impressed with the performance. I have tested the car already in 2 different track completely different conditions and the car worked really good with a wide sweet spot but still responsive to the changes

We are working in the final details of the box stock setup. We really like to offer a very balance and neutral setup out of the box.

Sounds Good Paolo. just when you work with something for so long, you get worried about the change, specially when you dont have an issue with the design. Cheers.

i saw paolos 747 recording the fastest lap ever on a very demanding track where bankings, elevation changes, traction rolls, bumps and concrete barriers and surroundings, his 747 was flying on rails and for sure a top notch car from serpent!

Default Compatability

Paolo- Can you list what parts are interchangable between the 733 and the new car? I know the geometry is different. Can I get a TE and hop it up?

Based on the upgrades.... too many changes... 747 seems more economical.

I agree - I dont think its worth trying to upgrade a 733 to the 747. After watching the You Tube footage from the toy fair there are too many changes with the new car to upgrade... you may end up replacing most of the car.

The wait is killing me

All the rear allu parts from the TE are the same. The engine mount system is the same, so you can use any of the different option ) i use the one piece engine mount.

The TE 2 speed system is the same, but the allu part of the brake pulley has a new design with 3 pin )you still use the same pulley.

All the pulleys are the same. Front sway bars and servo saver are the same. Front lower arm are the same. Same TE tank. Same battery tray and location.

Everything else, different.
