Serpent have released first images of their upcoming 747-e 200mm electric touring car. The vehicle makes use of the suspension components, steering and front and rear bulkheads of the nitro-powered 747 and combines them with a carbon fibre double deck construction in order to create a lightweight yet strong base for 2S to 3S LiPo battery packs and 540-size brushless motors. With the battery and motor technology developing at a fast rate the tough 200mm cars allow the use of 4-pole brushless motors for increased efficiency and power output and the class may come to the rescue for clubs that are faced with noise emission problems. It is understood that the 747-e will be released before the end of this year. We keep you up-to-date with more information as soon as they are available.
