Serpent monoblock LCG engine mount

Serpent monoblock LCG engine mount

Serpent has released this latest LCG orange anodised engine mono block for use with 12 size engines in the Serpent 720 which drops the engine by 1.5mm and thus helps lower the cars centre of gravity. Suitable for Picco and Novarossi based motors, this block ensures the engine mounting points are kept aligned reducing stress on the crankcase, which allows the engine to rev freer. The extra material used in the blocks, and with the addition of fins, also allow extra cooling to the crankcase and ensure the centre of gravity is kept as low as possible.

Serpent 960 & 720 – New optionals

Serpent 960 & 720 - New optionals

Serpent have released some new parts for the Serpent 720 and 960, the first being this brass plate for use in the optional Serpent 720 LCG chassis plates. Made using very hard brass material, this plate provides more weight to the front of the car, helping to remove snap oversteer and allowing the car to corner faster and smoother. In addition to the improved cornering speeds the added weight mounted in the chassis helps prevent grip roll on high traction surfaces. Also new from Serpent for both the 960 and 720 are these thin and therefore super soft front anti-roll bar blades. These new blades have the same hard setting as before but in the softest setting they are much softer providing even more steering and overall they allow a wider range of settings. The end of the shafts have also been changed and now have a new adjusting slot which enables you to easily see the setting of the anti-roll bar.
