Starting with the chassis, the main plate is machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and it comes black anodised for wear and looks while machined silver edge details further enhance the visual appearance. Strategically machined holes make for optimised flex characteristics and incorporated into the design are also milled out sections to add brass weights that help to fine-tune the weight balance if needed. The chassis is available separately or including two front brass weights.

Reflex Racing have introduced more option parts for the Serpent X20 mid motor touring car. First up is a 2.0mm upper deck cut from standard carbon fibre.

The top deck is designed to increases response, gear selection range and belt clearance while being more durable than stock version and it comes with a matte surface finish to differentiate.
