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.
Some smart thinking from the Racers Edge with the release of the Li-Poly sack, a flame resistant charging bag.
