1/10 is 11 cars in a main and the 1/8 is only 9 cars?
Why is that?

How soon will they be available in Europe and the United States?
Will they replace the MEGA's line OR be another line of engines provided
by Serpent?

the MF is another line by novamax. it should be the BEST line in serpent and mega will be positioned in BETTER line if my understanding is correct.

Paolo (and others) did a great job!
Too bad Michael Salven is a bit disappointing.
But overall I can be proud to be a Serpent owner!

last year, they laid down new asphault about two months prior to the race... that definitely helped traction and traction rolling

No matter what, once again, Serpent and Nova Rossi are back together (nova mega period) and this time along side with Nova MAX MF himself....

Sorry, about a little off topic.....back to the WinterNational and GO SERPENT GO....

Well, there are still 1 spot to bump up to the A-main from the B-Main....I forgot what race was that last year, USA (Kyosho) Bobby Flack had a bad weekend and was running some G-Main, he won or 2nd on all of the mains and bumped all the way up from G to B main (or A?)...........ran almost like 3 plus hours on his touring car for mains with X number sets of foams. Talk about IRON MAN of RC of that race.

So anything can happen.................A B-main driver might be the one who took the win on A-main.

P.S...ok, one more time, on 1/8th, 9 are in A now and how many bump(s) are on the B-main? 1 or 2...? I am confused.
