Serpent SRX8 suspension arm replacement program

Serpent SRX8 suspension arm replacement program

Following quality issues and too-easily breaking suspension arms, Serpent have announced a replacement program for the A-arms of the SRX8 buggy. The new suspension parts are made of a softer compound, resulting in more flex and more forgiveness in the event of severe crashes. The arms also underwent a redesign with beefed-up sections and also relocated set screws for the lower shock mount bolt. The revised front and rear suspension arms and shock bolts are available through the local Serpent dealers.

Serpent is offering a free replacement program on the wishbones of the Cobra SRX8 buggy.
– more durable
– wider flex control range

Especially the front arms broke under severe impact, but for our quality standards too quick. To warranty our high quality image we decided to do a full replacement program.

600779    Shock bolt (4) SRX8

Front and rear wisbones
The wishbones are beefed up in some locations and they are now made in a softer material which has more flex than before, to create more overall grip. By using the moulded or carbon inserts, top and or bottom,  the arm can be made stiffer as needed.
Same time we also changed the position of the set screw that keeps the spring-steel shock-bolt in positon. Its been moved more to the inside of the arm. For this new shock-bolts are made with the groove closer to the end instead of at the front.

Serpent will ship the replacement arms and shock-bolts to all distributors, and they will distribute the parts to the drivers, through the dealers .  The new parts will not be shipped to you by seperate mail, but can be included in a new order you place.

As we do a full exchange program, the partnumbers remain the same as before.

Shipping of new arms to distributors will commence 28th of june, so before mid july all drivers should be able to receive new wishbones.
