Italian company Sprint RC have released a first rendering of their forthcoming single battery conversion kit for the Serpent 977 1/8th nitro on-road car. Designed for the use with TTB brushless motors and a single 4S 14.8V LiPo battery pack the set will improve the handling of the car as the weight is more centralised compared to a setup with two split packs hanging left and right from the chassis. The conversion includes a mounting plate for the motor, a new carbon fibre radon plate with steering servo and receiver mount as well as a gear adapter. Also new is a rear carbon fibre body stiffener for 1/8th bodies. The part is designed to improve the rigidity of the rear fender and spoiler section and it is usable with many of today’s 1/8th on-road bodies.
