Jeez.... Sorry Snake. My grandfather passed away and I've been out of town.

I never got a chance to order the parts... My truck decided that I'd needed to spend $600 on it for repairs.

Needless to say, I may have to puyt those plans on hold with the XMas season around the corner, but I plan on getting the parts soon! I'll keep ya posted.

i just got a impluse, and i noticed that the chassis is bending or bowing upwards when i screw the two center braces together. someone told me that it's like that from the beginning. is that true? thanks for the help

Allin, Both Of Mine Was the Same Way.......What I did and Suggest Is Put it together.....The Stuff that Mounts to the Chassis
But do Not Tighten anything Until Everything Is Mounted and worked Into Place a Little Bit The Start Tighting The Screws On the Bottom Of the Chassis 1 by 1 a Little Bit at a time Until They all are Tight ...Kinda Like Tighting Lugs On a Wheel Of a car ...Hope this Helps......

YES it will But to Be Legal You Must trim It down Some to Fit Under the Body .......I use the Impact Front bumpere On My 2 Impulses with Good Results.

No ..What I did Was Mount the Front Bumper(plastic) and after Mounted I took a xacto Knife and Made a Mark around the edge of the Body. and trimed from that with My Drimel Tool Sanding barrel.

It was good enough for it's time. In fact I would say it was the best car on the market until the Mugen MTX-3 came out. Technology advances all the time. Last years hot ticket is this years antique.

Impulse was the start of Serpent 200mm racing. and developed into the 720. The only modification I did on Impulse was 2-speed trany. It was a big differance.
Still Have it my Serpent museum. It runs with the original Mega.12 engine. Really a good car to start with.
