Serpent recently announced a new 1/10 scale 4WD R/C touring car, dubbed the Serpent 747, featuring a host of new features as well a new lighter chassis.
Focus points for this development stage was to achieve a wider sweet spot, combined with lower weight and further improved performance, and keep a very strong car as before.

-Lighter front and rear brackets and middle shaft holder
-Improved front geometry with new upper wishbones
-Improved rear geometry with new arms and uprights
