Looks almost identical to durango and yes i know durango bought them out. Question is the gearbox, are they using the same crappy design layshaft on the dex210 or something more solid?

Serpent bought in to Gerd Stranges Durango project but then went bust, I beleive Serpent are now owned by an Asian company and have nothing to do with Team Durango.

the 2wd was developed way after the deal for serpent to produce the durango 410, would have been the serpent s500,
Durango are also owned by a far aisan company!

Durango, Axial and Arrma were all sold to Hobbico 18 months ago, so they are technically US companies now. Kingstar in Taiwan still makes the kits though.

Hey, it looks like they did the gull wing front suspension right. Hooray for Billy, that's a rare feat.

What exactly did they do right? What is so rare? - spindle carriers remind of something from the far past but the gullwings? what is so special about them?

Well most brands seem to add the gull wing to the arms and forget to change the geometry of the shock tower. The end result is just wrong.
