Serpent 966-E - 11.25.2009, 11:28 AM

Anyone seen this?

"Scoop
Serpent has developed the 1st purpose made 1/8 scale electric onroad production car for onroad circuit use .
Its fully based on the highly successful Serpent 966 platform and shares the main components, full independent suspension, 4wd, belt-drive. The center section is now reserved for the electric components.
It features a purpose designed nylon bracket / holder for all components, like the 2 saddle Lipo packs 4800 or even higher capacity cells, the speedo and the receiver. The large high power BL motor is securely mounted on a sturdy alu motorplate between the rear 2-speed bracket and the alu radioplate support. Purpose made alu and/or steel pinion-gears, single speed principle.
All elements have been positioned in such a way that an optimal weight balance of the car is maintained. Charging and replacing electronics is very easy and accessable.
Silent high performance ….. incredible acceleration …..amazing top-speeds .....
Planned introduction: Mid december 2009
Serpent will also offer a Conversion set, to change your 960 or 966 into a full blown electric racer .... so you may just want to hang on to your 2009 car for this purpose."

There are no question about the Serpent 966 performance. Mark Green from UK used the Serpent 966 entered the A-Main final at the 2009 1/8th World IC Championship. The car itself is just as good as Mugen, Kyosho or Montonica.

This 966-E is definitely cost just as much as the NITRO version ($600 price tag)....It is no DM-1 or any other buggy conversion because this is the true 1/8th On Road Circuit type Race car. It won't be like $100 or $200 more then the Nitro version. If someone really want to save money, you can try to spot a used nitro 966 and buy the conversion kits and that MIGHT save you $100 or so, but I doubt it will save by alot.

My concern is NOT the car, it is what type of batteries, speedo and motor that they are planning to use to convert this 966-E to run against the nitro version. I am not asking too much, just 5 minutes hanging against a nitro 966 with average engine/pipe and I am all in for that...

They should've had one out a while back. It's funny that I've seen normal R/C guys do a better job.
