Serpent Viper 989E 1/8th scale EP chassis

Serpent have released their new Viper 989E, the latest electric version of their 989 1/8th scale chassis. Electric racing has developed big time and the 989E is designed to take care of that power and put it down as effectively as possible. Based on the successful 989 gas racer and sharing it’s suspension, shocks and quite a lot of other features like the chassis plate and drivetrain, there are many EP specific parts on this car as well. They have made room for serious power with the batteries mounted on a 2.5mm thick carbon plate, the variety of packs can be mounted in 3 different positions, changing the CG to alter the cars behaviour. The elevated speedo mounting plate gives stiffness for the battery plates and creates also room for oversized speedos with even 1/5th scale speedos possible. A large range of motors can also be accommodated and the area around the motor has been stiffened to remove any unwanted flex. Other features include a wider 10mm rear belt and module 1 steel gears for durable power delivery.
