Oops, my bad - I thought it was early next year (i.e. January).

Serpent has been on quite a tear updating their lineup this year.

Given that it has only gone up a single digit, I would venture that a) itís probably just a few minor updates as they prepare for this yearís Regional championships (ROARís is next month I think) and head into the Worlds next year, and b) something that 988 owners will probably be able to update to fairly easily.
i hope so, this week will be my first run of my 988. i need too get as much use from it as possible, as long as i can get parts

You wont run out of parts no time soon, even with a new car in the works.

Have not build a suspension car since the early 1980's so current cars are a bit different.
What tools are needed for building a Serpent now? Downloaded instructions but there is no info.
It's for the pivots balls and nylon nuts at front and rear suspension. Also what size is the turnbuckle wrench?
Thanks.

1.5, 2.0, 2.5 & 3.0 mm hex/allen for all the basic stuff, 2.0 & 2.5 with ball ends are nice to have.
5mm for pivot ball nuts, I use a T-handle with a piece of fuel tubing, or you could get this this: INFINITY 5mm HEX WRENCH

3mm turnbuckle for small ones / 4mm for steering tie rod ? Arrowmax are the best ones as the ends are tapered.

Hmm, I got the Serpent wrenches, and TBH (as best as I can tell from the picture above), they look just like those Arrowmax ones - except they have the Serpent logo on them. 🙂 Just like those, they also have grooves cut into the handles to easily identify the mm size.
