Serpent Natrix 748 – Prototype photos

SerpentNatrix748-5

Serpent have released first images of the Natrix 748 200mm nitro on-road kit. The follow-up model of the successful 747 is designed with the input of Serpent’s factory team drivers such as Mark Green and the Sahashi brothers in order to create a platform that works for club and high-level racers alike. Therefore the kit comes with redesigned differentials that sport new housings and internals, repositioned ball-raced anti-roll bars, lightened rear brake and 2-speed shaft holders, a redesigned fuel tank that makes for a lower centre of gravity and new servo mounts with a more centralised position. A new chassis plate with a more backward mounted engine helps to optimise the weight balance while a new steering block design, taken over from the 977, allows for a leading or trailing position and adjustable kingpin inclination. Both the front and rear hubs are designed for the use with aero discs and the carbon fibre radio plate offers a wide range of flex adjustments. The Natrix 748, that is visible with white 3D printed prototype parts here, will be ready for a release around mid-May.
