Serpent SRX8 rear skid plates & alloy coupler

Coming from Serpent and made for the SRX8 nitro buggy are new rear skid plates as well as an aluminium gear coupler. Starting with the skid plates, the optional carbon fibre or aluminium parts are designed to be an option for the standard steel plate that is part of the kit. Both the carbon and alloy part are much lighter, resulting in a changed weight distribution. The plates are available separately and they include a new diff case gasket.

Also new for the SRX8 buggy is a hard-coated 7075-T6 aluminium gear coupler. The part saves about 70 percent of weight compared to the standard spring steel coupler which results in improved acceleration and braking thanks to reduced rotational masses.
