Serpent Viper 990 1/8 GP chassis

Serpent have announced the release of the Viper 990, the successor of the successful 989. The team have spent a lot time testing and development to improve the 989 platform and have put a lot of emphasis on the flex characteristic since that showed very promising results. The main new features include the ultra-narrow chassis which has been milled down to allow the lower radio plate as well as to improve flex. The central hole underneath the tank is narrower, as a consequence of the narrower chassis and so the central weight bridge is now mounted from underneath and allows for a quick change of the weight. The front weight bridge is now also mounted from the bottom to allow easy access to the weight and is now also adjustable from the bottom. There are 2 additional locations to put a small weight, just behind the servo-saver and in front of the engine. The engine has been lowered 1mm for improved flex as well to lower the CG.

Exotek high performance Flite spur gears

Exotek have introduced 4 new high performance machined POM spur gears for all Exotek slipper eliminator hubs. Available in 104T, 99T, 94T and 89T, they are 100% machined POM to insure true roundness, with extra interior machining to reduce overall weight for reduced rotating mass. Much stiffer and truer than moulded nylon spur gears, they require three M3x6 button head screws (not included). These sizes are best suited for stand up or raised transmissions as they may be too big for most laydown transmissions.
