Serpent 966 Monobloc engine mount & Centax-2 clutch housing


Serpent is busy producing more option parts for their line of gas on-road cars in the form of a brass mono-type engine mount and a new Centax-2 aluminium clutch housing. The one-piece Monobloc engine mount is precision CNC-machined from brass adding extra weight in a low and central of the chassis. The part weights 80g compared to the 28g of the aluminium part and also makes for a better heat transfer. The Centax-2 aluminium clutch housing is precision machined from special grade material to generate extra grip for the clutch shoes. Designed to fit all Centax-2 systems, made for the use with Serpent’s hard coated aluminium gear pinions and 70 percent lighter than the standard steel version. The best performance is gained with the black clutch shoes as the yellow and red shoes may wear too fast.
