But to answer your question, I've ordered a 960 '08, and also am waiting untill it will be delivered at my LHS....

About the ZX engines not being on stock @ Serpent, they are in the process of developing another engine housing, to best suit the new exhaust systems, which are mandatory by EFRA for the new racing season.....

thank you guys!!!
The Mega DS II+ is good and the Mega ZX21 DSII+ EM is fantastic. But, if you already have a number of Novarossi parts, these Picco based engines will not be compatible. You can't swap parts between the two manufacturers.

Here is a spring rate chart I made, using Serpent's published data, to help visualize how the old springs line up against the new ones when converting.

This true, the ones coming here will automatically have both offset kits?
