Serpent Cobra GT 3.0 1/8th on-road kits

Serpent Cobra GT 3.0 1/8th on-road kits

Following a first teaser Serpent have now released full details on the new Cobra GT 1/8th on-road kits. Coming as nitro and electric variant both feature new front and rear aluminium suspension mounts to optimise the suspension geometry by making for flatter A-arm angles which suits on-road racing better. The kits also include 6 degree aluminium C-hubs and rear uprights to further improve the suspension package while new aluminium shock absorber risers allow for optimised shock angles to further up the on-track performance. The suspension package is rounded out by a set of redesigned 4.5mm carbon fibre shock towers.


With the above applying to both the electric and nitro kits the latter also received some gas specific upgrades in the form of the XLi superlight 2-speed gearbox as known from the 977 Evo kit, and the car comes with new aluminium middle bearing blocks to complement the new gearbox and to allow the use of the existing double disc brake system. Both the nitro and electric kit will hit the stores shortly.
