Default Its Hear! The New Serpent 710!!!

From Serpent USA, RCCA, RCZ, and mtsn.com

All-new Serpent 710 Nitro Touring Car





Many racers have awaited Serpent’s new contender for the nitro touring class for some time, and now it's upon us - the all-new S-710. The S-710 is scheduled to be available in early December but Serpent has decided to reveal the new 710 to show some of the unique features of this brand new car.

The S-710 is a complete new platform. The design team felt that the Impulse/705 platform was already stretched to the limit performance wise, and that they had to start with a clean sheet of paper. And that’s exactly what they have done. The S-710 has been under development for over 2 years now, resulting in a highly advanced top level racing car loaded with well tested innovative technical features.
