Serpent to Reenter the Off Road Market In 2008...

This is an excerpt from the Serpent Web Site:

"Serpent’s R&D team and Gerd Strenge are now working together on a number of projects for the off road market, but it will take some time before you will see the actual cars being introduced. Although proto-types have been running for a while already. Serpent will introduce off road cars in 2008 (both 1/10 electric as 1/8 scale) and Gerd will be one of the R&D team to work on those projects for Serpent. His massive experience in off road and his innovative idea’s will be a major asset for Serpent to create some of the finest offroad cars the market has ever seen. His emphasis is always very much on simplicity and ease of maintenance, which fits right in with the product-strategy that Serpent has chosen.

Serpent will not be making a copy of the 1/10 Durango as it is now (as others tried or are still trying), but will take the design a few steps further into a new concept, which will of course share many of the basic idea’s behind the successful Durango 1/10 car.

At the same time development work is in progress on the 1/8 scale off road car too. Some major races have been attended already (Proline UK race) and the proto-type will be used in a number of other large races now to further develop the car."

This will be interesting, although the Serpent 1/8th on road stuff is quite a bit more expensive than other manufactures

If you saw the picture with the story he is holding a heavily modified TTR S3 that was used to win a big european race. Neo-buggy I think. He is the one responsible for the Durango that most here havn't seen or herd much about.
