Serpent have announced the release of the ‘08 spec of the European Championship winning Serpent 720 chassis. Maintaining the cars race winning geometry and already high specification, the 2008 version will now be supplied with a number of great option parts as standard. The chassis plate has now been black anodised and features a machined recess to mount the supplied front brass plate, an option that helps remove snap oversteer and allows the car to corner faster and smoother. Also included with the kit are the new 0 and 1mm offset steering blocks that provide more options to fine-tune your car’s setup on different track layouts. An aluminium radio plate X bracket also comes as standard, that not only looks great but also helps increase rigidity of the car, while finally, to ensure the engine mounting points are kept aligned, reducing stress on the crankcase, the 720-08 is supplied with the single piece orange anodised engine mount. Apart from the options, some of the cars standard parts have also been improved such as the fuel tank, which is now made from a more crash resistant material, while the mounted AFL tank lid comes with a new improved rubber seal. Other improvements include the use of a smaller diameter flywheel and the inclusion of Serpent’s new shock springs.
