Serpent 411-FF FWD touring chassis

Having seen the Serpent 411-FF at the Nuremberg toy fair Serpent has released full details on their first ever front wheel drive only car. Its based on the Serpent 411 TC 4wd car and shares many parts. Serpent has tested the front wheel drive cars intensively and achieved a perfectly balanced race-chassis, putting the front mounted motor as low in the front as possible. The front wheel drive system gives a unique drive-feel, very different from 4wd, but super smooth, easy and great fun. The Serpent 411-FF pre production cars have already won races in Indonesia and Hong Kong, and the cars will be run at the TITC in Thailand as well.
