Serpent Cobra SRX8 Evo 1/8th nitro buggy kit

Coming very soon from Serpent is the new Cobra SRX8 Evo 1/8th scale nitro buggy kit. The Evo variant sports some subtle updates for improved performance and easier maintenance and it is based on a newly designed 3mm 7075-T6 aluminium chassis that features an optimised engine position and a grey coating. Also new are the 4.5mm 7075-T6 aluminium front and rear shock towers to which updated shocks attach. The latter can now be build as membrane or emulsion-type damper thanks to a dual system.

Moving over to the suspension department, the Evo comes with the latest A-arms that offer a wider range of setup options and they are made out of an improved material for optimised performance and durability. Additional hinge pin inserts further increase setup possibilities while moulded rear uprights increase traction on lower grip surfaces. The drivetrain received new spring steel centre driveshafts and adapters with the dogbone style improving durability, ease of use and maintenance. The Evo kit is rounded out by the high-downforce Avenger body shell. The kit will hit stored beginning of September.
