The Eryx 411 4.1 EP produced by Serpent in 1/10 scale AWD drivetrain assembly kit, is classified in R/C Models - On-Road - Touring Cars - Electric Powered
The Serpent ERYX 411-4.1 is the next development stage for the 411 platform. Featuring
an ultra low centre of gravity, optimized weight distribution, high performance
geometry and top quality materials throughout, the ERYX is your car for personal
best times !
Serpent is offering this ERYX 411 4.1 version car as alternative to the Project
4X car, for drivers that are looking for a more regular looking car and with
a lower price tag. The ERYX 4.1 is still a high end racing car with lots of
tuning options and is suitable for all levels of racing.

The Serpent ERYX utilises a centrally mounted ball raced dual pivot steering
assembly-rack in aluminium. Offset steering linkage for correct steering geometry
and Ackermann. The steering assembly allows for very precise steering and great
control. The Ackermann is adjustable by using shims. The system pivots on wider
low steering-shafts, creating a more direct steering feel. The bearing in the
levers are pressed inside for a play-free assembly
The unique and innovative carbon fibre servo holder has zero influence on tweak,
as its floating above the chassis and mounted directly to the steering-assembly
in the centre of the car. This also keeps the weight lower than any other design.
For adjusting the cars toe-in and track-width, the ERYX is equipped with separately
mounted suspension brackets on both the front and rear of the car. Each bracket
features an easily recognisable number that corresponds to the setting being
used and due to the way they are mounted allows the user to easily and accurately
adjust their cars settings. The brackets are designed such way that they can
be used in any position in the car. The inner brackets FR and RR are now split
type, to allow for more flex. The split suspension blocks are mirror type, so
you can use them either left or right and obtain a different desired setting.
This way less different blocks are needed for a good variety of settings. Standard
ones: 3.5/ 0.5 split blocks in the rear, 2.0/ 0.5 in the front
This car is supplied with a complete set of 4 high quality hard coated spring-steel
CVD shafts, which are a highly consistent, efficient and durable way to transfer
all the power the surface.
Chassis plate and top deck
The very narrow chassis plate has been machined from 2.0mm carbon. All holes
in the base of the chassis have been countersunk. The chassis further features
extra holes to mount weights and additional stiffeners. All holes are as close
to the centreline of the chassis, to create even flex.
Flex type 2mm top deck to allow for optimal flex. Using all or less screws to
fasten it may influence flex even more.
The battery pack is kept in place by 2 mounts on the centreline of the car,
and 2 composite mounts with slits to mount the glass-tape or use Velcron strap.
Belts - drivetrain
The ERYX features a 2-belt configuration with a long front and a short rear
Kevlar reinforced low friction belt that combined with precision moulded gears
makes for a super smooth and free drive train.
The Serpent ERYX features 2.5mm thick carbon fibre shock towers on the front
and rear of the car. Each tower sports many holes for adjustment of the shock
absorber angle while the rear tower also acts as the mount for the rear body
posts and the front tower accommodates a 3rd front body post.
A standard system on most high-end touring cars, the ERYX features a front C-hub
system in hard composite. The car comes standard with a 4-degree caster block
but is also supplied with a pair of 2 and 6-degree blocks. The C-hub is large
enough to take out the drive-shaft assembly without dis-assembling the c-hubs.
Similar to the rear suspension in configuration, the front suspension sports
a hard composite wishbone while the upper camber adjustment is handled using
an aluminium track rod which is strong, lightweight and can easily handle impacts.
Rear section with harder arms
The rear end of the ERYX features stronger hard lower wishbones. The lower wishbones
can be used on both the left and right sides, minimizing the number of spare
parts needed to bring to the track. The rear hard upright features a pivot pin
mounting point on the bottom and 2 upper camber link mounting holes for fine-tuning
The machined aluminium motor bracket is superlight and super low and suits both
stock and mod gearing well. The small front aluminum bracket can be fitted with
an aluminum bushing with long screw to connect to the top-deck. It can also
be removed to create extra flex. The separate machined brackets hold the light
aluminium middle shaft/ 19T pulley.
Composite Gear differential with new material composite gears and X-axle
The ERYX comes supplied with a lightweight and smooth rear gear-differential.
This supermall differential can handle all the power of BL motors. Gear-diff
can also be used on the front. The new version has new type composite internal
gears and 3.5mm x-shape shaft and features coated aluminium outdrives. The metal
gears can also still be used or mixed with composite.
Big bore shocks
The new Serpent big bore on road shock absorbers lower the centre of gravity
even further. They come with threaded coated shock-bodies, pre-load shock nuts
with O-ring, harder membranes , super smooth and strong shock-rods with clip
to hold the piston, perfectly machined pistons ( 1,2,3 and 4 holes in kit) in
a new yellow material , top-level x-ring /bushing package, light spring-cups,
strong ball joints, pre-oiled x-rings.
High quality race-springs included with colour coding, grinded flat for even
The front bumper has been made from a high impact absorbing foam material and
is shaped to protect the entire front end of the car in the event of a crash.
The bumper is held in place with a large top-plate.
The ERYX is supplied with high-quality lightweight bearings with orange seals
throughout, making the drive train very efficient and allowing it to run very
