Very narrow 3mm 7075T6 aluminium chassis, with lots of machining on the upper
face to make it lighter in strategic locations and to control flex. Kick-up
front for proper landings. Angled side to increase cornering clearance, and
secure and easy mounting side guards with 5 screws. Countersunk holes, chamfered
sleeve for flywheel, pockets to position the suspension brackets. Grey anodized
with Cobra Logo engraved.
Overall the Truggy is designed to keep the weight very central and near to
the centerline as possible, to create great
Central diff / brake / spur-gear guard
Optimised central gear-diff with 50T super-hard spur-gear . Very small, compact
design to reduce rotating mass to the max.
Spur Gear Guard
Helps prevent the spur gear from slinging debris all over the inside of the
car and especially into the air filter. Works for rain and water puddles.
Piston Braking system
Provides more stopping power than you could have ever imagined before with a
whole lot less servo power. Also is fully adjustable with 3 types of pistons
solid, O-ring type, spring type. In turn you can adjust your bias or braking
feel to your liking in more ways than ever before.
Fiber Glass brake disks with oversized fronts. Brake plate springs will keep
the plates spread open to insure not un-wanted dragging of the brake discs.
Durable but light and thin Serpent spring steel, laser engraved shafts.
Front and rear diff
Optimised gear-diff with 50T superhard spur-gears . Very small, compact design
to reduce rotating mass to the max. Same version front and rear. Diff coupler
in spring steel for 3 bearings
Light, strong and durable machined 5mm carbon fibre units with 5 positions for
Sleek low profile air filter
Centralized air filter design to minimize cab width and height. Flexible rubber
boot combined with strong nylon case to support the foam elements. Excellent
dense foam airfilter elements to keep your engines clean inside
Rubber boots for shafts
Helps to keep the dirt out and the lubrication in. Reduces wear.
Suspension brackets rear
Nicely machined 7075 T6 alumnium with eccentric inserts to change set-up.
Rear wing mount
The composite rear wing mount, allows to change the angle of the rear wing.
Two stage high down force wing, has two levels of angle, which also includes
2 fins. Helps improve down force and straight line capability
Nylon bodymounts with wider seating for the body, securely fastened to the shocktowers.
Super Low profile Body
Improves appearance as well as keeps the profile low.
Serpent and Cobra logo decals in black-white print
Composite one piece radiobox to securely mount servo s, battery and receiver.
Easy access with screw on tops and nice switch-cover. Radio linkages run very
straight and are easy to mount and set. Easy system to keep settings when removing
the linkage assembly.
Anti-roll bar / anti-roll bar linkage with pivotball
The anti-roll bars front and rear are made of high quality special spring steel,
and are captured on the diff-cased in ballbearing for perfect guidance and control.
Very long and durable composite lower wishbones, combined with upper spring-steel
trackrods. 2 lower shock-mount positions. Downstops can be used as needed. Pivotball
type anti-roll bar rods.
Front steering / servo saver / angled
Innovative angled front steering assembly to reduce the angle of difference
between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump
steer and a truer steering Ackerman through the entire range of suspension.
Adjustable spring loaded servo-saver system with interchangeable Ackermann
plates. With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackerman
you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. You simply will only need
to adjust your end points on your radio.. Very easy to access and set-up.
The Inboard Bell crank keeps the lever and linkage inside the car. It will
aid in the prevention of damage to the steering system. Zero scrub radiuses
on steering knuckle, helps reduce the jacking effect created by your steering
knuckle offset. It provides a more direct fell while keeping the cars chassis
more level while turning.
The front roll center can be changed quickly by moving the steering knuckle
shims to their appropriate locations. Topped of with a strong 5mm carbon fibre
Front steering-block / c-hubs
Very durable front steeringblock / C-hub assembly .
Long and lightweight spring steel units with pressed in steel pins, laser-engraved.
Same length front and rear.
Wheel-axles / wheel-nut
Serpent spring steel threaded wheel-axles with lightweight grey anodised aluminium
wheel-nuts ( flanged and serrated) to keep the massive truggy wheels/tyres on
Composite chassis braces
Allows the chassis to flex which helps improve bump handling. Front and rear.
Nicely rounded front bumper, same as on the Cobra buggy, to protect the front
anti-roll bar, suspension brackets, and flows inline with kick-up chassis front
for safe landings.
Light, strong and durable machined 5mm carbon fibre units with 5 positions for
Suspension brackets alu
The hinge-pins / hingepin balls are captured in precision machined, special
shaped 7075 T6 aluminium, grey anodized with indicated type. They capture the
nylon roll-center inserts.
Captured universal joints
The idea here was simple. Guarantees you will finish a race without loosing
a pin or set screw. All parts, axles and drive train components have capture
Durable shaped composite side guards that follow the line of the chassis, and
mount with 5 screws each side. Front and sides high enough to keep the dirt
Shock-set front and rear
16mm big bore shocks, with hard anodized precision threaded shock-bodies. Shockboots
in silicone rubber to keep the dirt out . Chromed shock-shafts for supersmooth
shockaction . The larger o rings provide less overall pressure and a better
seal without dragging on the shock shaft.
Durable composite rear uprights with 3 camber positions
In moist or wet dirt situations these mud guards reduce and dirt sticking to
the rear drive shafts and shocks. Follow line of wishbone perfectly.
Wide aluminium engine mounts with side cooling-fins. Fits any brand of engine.
Pipe-mount / wire
Alumnium version combined with coil spring-steel wire, to keep pipe well positioned
and limits seal ?breakage.
Racing clutch 4 - shoe
Allows you to mix and match shoe materials evenly in pairs. Also provides more
surface area contact to insure the engagement. 4 carbon shaped shoes are standard
( alu ones optional).
Strong nylon 150cc fueltank with clunk-style filter.
Splash basin on tank top, which helps reduce fuel all over the chassis in the
event of a messy pit stop. The basin collects the splashed fuel and guides it
safely out the bottom of the chassis. The fuel tank seal is angled to self guide
its way into the bore of the tank. At the same time will provide a seal on the
chamfered and flat edges of the seal, providing consistent engine performance
from one pit stop to the next.
Tank with swiveling nipple and floating clunk.
With the swiveling nipple you are able to adjust the angle at which you want
you fuel line to travel. At the same time the floating clunk helps when you
go upside down. The clunk by gravity will fall back into the fuel, utilizing
the flexibility of the silicone fuel tubing.Oversized Tank with adjustable volume.
With the insertion of a simple screw and volume reducer you can have ROAR, IFMAR
and any other organizations legal tank volumeSmall nylon stoppers for the fuel-line
are included with the kit to prevent fuel spilling.
