Serpent have published an interview with Billy Easton regarding the development of their recently released Spyder 2wd 1/10th buggy which can be found here. ”Right now there seems to be a transition into the electric racing scene. As with everything, this industry goes in waves. Gas was very popular for a couple years, and now I think its electrics turn. As a company, we are constantly trying to expand our product line and with anything, things take time. In the case of the Spyder project, we wanted to create a car that was competitive right out of the box.
As many of you know we introduced our design in February of this year. Since that time, through countless hours of hard work/testing and refinement, the Spyder project is complete. I am very proud of the car we plan on releasing in just a couple short weeks. This is a good move for us, and it helps us expand our product line to a new fan base of potential customers, that we have never reached out to before. Hopefully with any good plan, as a company we hope that customers give our buggy a try. I think they will be very surprised in the quality and performance.” - Billy Easton
