Serpent Natrix 748 200mm nitro on-road kit

Serpent Natrix 748 200mm nitro on-road kit

Following a first teaser some time ago, Serpent now officially introduce the Natrix 748 1/10th 200mm nitro on-road car. Designed by Michael Salven and using input from Serpent’s key team drivers from around the World the 748 is the evolution step of the successful 747. The car makes use of many design features seen on the 1/8th scale Viper 977, such as the fully adjustable steering block system or the throttle linkage. The laydown steering and throttle servos are located in a 1-piece mount and as close to the centreline of the car as possible for improved handling. Also new and centrally mounted is a small radio box with the radio plate sporting a holder for the receiver battery plug that then can act as an on/off switch.

Other new features are a redesigned chassis with a more backwards mounted engine for an optimised weight distribution, a new fuel tank, a relocated rear anti-roll bar, lighter layshaft mounts, and new rear uprights that now accept carbon aero discs. The new radio plate allows for swift flex setting adjustments thanks to a ball-raced system and the front bumper sits lower with the upper part being a sturdy carbon fibre plate. In sum the 748 is meant to be an easier to work on car while being lighter of weight at the same time.
