Serpent 720 Evo2 Steering Blocks

Serpent 720 Evo2 Steering Blocks

Serpent have released a new these Evo2 steering blocks for the 720 which are sold in pairs and feature either 0 or 1mm kingpin angle. These new blocks have 1mm more offset compared to the standard versions, which gives the car a more smooth steering style. The 0-degree blocks work well on medium traction surfaces while the 1-degree blocks work better on low to medium level traction surfaces. However if you swap the left and right 1-degree blocks, the car will then work better in high grip tracks, actually reducing the effects of grip roll, while at the same time giving the car smoother, more consistent, cornering.

Sato Seiki Serpent 960 Chassis

Sato Seiki Serpent 960 Chassis

Japanese tuning parts firm Sato Seiki have released this optional chassis plate for the Serpent 960 1/8th scale. The chassis has been designed in such a way as to allow both the front and rear end to twist, given the car better overall grip in the corners. This is achieved by creating a large open space at the front and rear of the chassis, which weakens the torsional stiffness of the plate enabling it to twist, similar to the optional Serpent 720 chassis but without the use of the carbon plate.
