Serpent Spyder 2WD buggy kit

Serpent Spyder 2WD buggy kit

After releasing first teaser images Serpent now have body-off images and additional information on the Spyder 2WD buggy available. Thought out by  Cobra 1/8 buggy designer and former World Champion Billy Easton the Spyder is a purpose-built rear motor buggy with a composite rub chassis, 3-gear gearbox with 3-pad slipper clutch and adjustable differential height. The differential itself is a ball-type unit with large balls for improved power transfer while retaining good drivability on slippery surfaces. The suspension is highly adjustable and allows for easy castor changes using 0° to 2.5° inserts while at the rear toe-in, roll centre and anti-squat settings are adjustable inboard with the rear hubs allow also outboard toe changes. Included are 12mm RCM-type big bore shock absorbers, carbon fibre shock towers, metric hex hardware, lightweight yet durable spring steel driveshafts and an aerodynamic cab forward body shell. A dedicated mid motor buggy for high-traction surfaces will follow soon.
