Serpent Cobra SRX8 buggy

SerpentSRX8-1

Following a number of teasers, Serpent have finally released their all new Cobra SRX8 1/8th scale buggy. Designed by Billy Easton, the focus was on performance, ease of use and durability. A very well specced kit, the major changes include new gear-differentials that have a larger case to allow for more oil inside and a built in pressure compensation system, resulting in a more consistent diff over longer runs. A new gear-mesh plate system allows for easy and secure engine (dis)assembly without worrying about gear mesh. For tuning, the front and rear lower wishbones allow inserts to be both mounted in the top and bottom for many possible flex options, using no inserts, moulded inserts, carbon inserts, or mixed of both inserts. Finally the new angled steering system offers optimal Ackermann settings as well as reduced bumpsteer.
