That's Ken Myers, right?

Well, he is active on the myTSN forum:
http://www.mytsn.com/forums/forum.asp?fid=1887&fi=1

He tried to get me to sell him my S710 and pay in installments.
Forget it I said... I knew of his reputation by then.

lol, i do remember him now. he always wanted pics... sorry to take the forum off topic.
but back to the main subject. the 960.
i can't wait to get a look at this car. it should be pretty awesome. in my opinion, Serpent has an advantage in that they have been able to see the advantages of the MRX-4 and Evovla, then put them both into one car.

Serpent released the PART 2 (front part) of the 960.....I don't really know how it is better (I am sure it will be better) but I have already like the front steering hub looks already....kinda like the real car, just missing a brake caliper.........LOL

(I have a feeling these front and rear suspension system can be installed onto the 950R series....which is super GOOD...)

Also, at the upper right hand side "GIF" flash icon.....there are several more image of the 960, the full car, the front upper suspension, lay-down throttle servo....etc. The whole car does look very similar to the 950 but I am sure there are alot of little things are different....
Look like the 960 will allow BOTH way to install your throttle servo....lay down, or the original stand up design....good thinking....when the throttle is in laydown position, this time, the servo horn is facing OUTSIDE instead of the inside position like 950R........I think that is for better push rod adjustment reason.

That's good news Paolo.
I am glad to hear you are going to The Great Lakes. I have already pre-ordered my 960 So I hope to have it to run the 2nd class in Ohio. It will be fun to see you guys get this car on a rail. New car combined with the new Serpent body.... Sounds like a winner to me.
