Serpent introduce new SRX8E & Project 4X optionals

Serpent have introduced new optional parts for the SRX8E 1/8th E-buggy and the Project 4X touring car kit. Starting with the buggy related part, new are carbon fibre saddle pack battery plates for the optional saddle pack battery layout. Cut from 2mm carbon fibre the plates are an optional replacement for the standard mounts, offering improved stiffness and thus making a good alternative when more chassis rigidity is needed. The set is a direct replacement and it is available now.

Next up and made for the Project 4X touring car is a short chassis stiffener. Designed to create more torsional flex, the short stiffener acts as a connecting point for the servo mount and the front topdeck stiffener. It can only be used in combination with a topdeck, either the new double vertical topdeck or the standard flat topdeck. It also saves a considerable amount of weight. The short stiffener is also compatible with the new topdeck stiffeners, however a 4mm shim is needed between the rear topdeck stiffener and the motor mount in this case. Last but not least comes a new narrow bumper plate that locates the body mounts more towards the centre of the chassis which can be useful for certain types of bodies.
