here's s'more...the upper chassis (what ever it's called?) is metal, aluminum i believe. it's not carbon fiber, like i see alot of, online.
(edit) the upper chassis or chassis plate rather, is in fact not metal at all. it seems to be some sort of composite, maybe an old school carbon fiber?

[QUOTE=Roelof;10530833]Looks like an Impact M2[/QUOT

thanks. i looked the M2 up, and that sure is what it looks like. any ideas where i can get parts? i need atleast 1 front axle, a battery pack, and a body. so far that's all i know, because i don't have a starter box yet. (i'm new to nitro)

Goto: http://www.abc-rc-shop.nl/
on the right go to the exploded view section, and goto to the M2.
Then you will find part number: 808221

Then google on "Serpent 808221" and you get an Ebay link, to a dutch Shop, who is some sort of a collector of old serpent parts!.....

http://www.ebay.nl/itm/SERPENT-Alumi...-/250752626432

Can you measure the front and rear trackwidth?
if the front stay within 220mm, and the rear 230mm, you can go for this body:

If its a Impact M2, goto Stormer Hobbies, Search Serpent Impulse. Drive shaft frt & Rear. Same chassis btn the two except the wheel drives. Bodies are hard to find cuz 235mm car are drop by Serpent years ago. Ashford hobby May have a Can am style body. There is another one that may fit, cant remember the manufacture.

I have all that stuff sitting in a box here in Texas, with a new body that hasn't even been cut out. Let me know if you can't find anything.

Would you be interested in a NIB kit? I think i may know someone who has this kit with all the new parts still unsold after all theses years. As for the 235mm body, i'll pop in my friend's shop to see if he still has some units left
