Ulta smooth gear-changes are given by the WC type Light-Compact (LC) automated 2-speed gearbox, which combines perfectly with the Centax III-WC system. Precision machined 2-speed bell and one-way adaptor, coupled with durable centrifugal shoes attached to the SS-steel polished adaptor. Balanced SS-steel 2-speed layshaft.
Alu CNC machined belt-tensioner bracket, that can install on top or below the radioplate. Ballraced.
Driveshafts / wheel-adaptors
The front end has SS-steel CVD system, with laser engraved, ultra thin and light driveshafts, combined with durable wheel-axles and accuracy machined alu hex wheel adaptors.
The rear end has SS-steel dogbones additionally thin/lightweight, yet durable, to stand the beating associated with the ever increasing horsepower and grip-levels.
Kevlar 4mm wide re-inforced drive-belts. Orange PU type belts are standard (the black/brown low friction plastic type are optional, however for the first batch the plastic ones are employed).
Low-mounted 75cc fueltank with bronze sintered filter with AFL-cap, relocated more towards front side and offers a mounting-position for AMB transponder on base. Little part indent to deliver room the throttle lever. Tank-inserts can be screw-mounted inside to decrease the articles if needed. Tanks mounts on 3 alu posts, with rubber covers, capped with silicone o-ring and tiny clips.
Asymetric roll club with built-in sleeve the fuel-cap strap. The roll bar increases also as end-stop for the fuel-cap, to avoid the limit to start too much.
Machined alu pipe-mount holds the spring-wire , which will be connected to the radioplate. Grub-screw holds cable in place.
The innovative and attractive new bumper sports a split type foam bumper, as well as the angled top bumper creates an extremely sturdy front end, to absorb the effect of crashes ( if any). ( A wider foam bumper is provided as optional.)

The middle shaft owner is beautifully incorporated in the front side left alu bracket and secured with 3 screws. This provides strong, flex-free guidance towards the SS-steel middle shaft.
2-speed shaft brackets
The two alu brackets to keep the 2-speed shaft are true artwork. By isolating them from buttocks brackets, it makes plenty of available room to exert effort on the vehicle and provides better method for cooling too. In top the brackets offer the ball-raced rear anti-roll bar, which will be seated in the brackets with small metal adaptors and high speed bearings. The left one also houses the ball-raced brake-cam and supports the framework stiffner too. Multi-functional.
4mm thick carbon fibre rear shocktower with 6 mounting jobs the shocks. The holes sit in such way, that after changing to to another hole, along the shocks can remain the exact same. The shocktower includes holes to mount the tank-cap strap, and mounting roles the rear body mounts.
Brand new uprights to match the latest geometry. Permits 2 mounting roles inside top, inner or outer and also the kit comes complete with conical spacers to change roll-center.
The new back lower wishbones can be used both left and right. The anti-roll club linkage has 2 mounting jobs to pick from. The rear carbon camber bracket in 4mm thick material , has 9 jobs to pick from, 5 inner and 4 outer each part. The roll-center modifications are made by changing the inner pivot inserts for less, medium or maybe more place, with regards to the situation.
Wheel-base are changed utilizing the casterclips in front or back for the wishbone on lower pin.
A very available and cool braking system system, with 2 big ventilated steel disks, with one machined alu cooling-fin at the center ( additionally utilized successfully on the Serpent 966) . The brake-system is installed low inside vehicle for better center of gravity. Spring loaded race pads that slip on precision machined bushings. The race brake-pads will be ready to utilize with pre-baked friction material ( no more glueing ) that persists and offers amazing braking power with exemplary braking system feeling / feedback. Reaches right temperature quickly, doesn't have fading and is useful in the pouring rain too. The nylon brake lever, that operates the hard-anodised ballraced brake-cam, has 2 mounting jobs the linkage. The linkage runs really straight to the servo-arm.
The very quick and narrow radioplate is made of 2.5mm high quality carbon fibre material and advertisements toward overall tightness associated with automobile. The entire design is made in such method your complete radioplate with tank, roll-bar, belt-tensioner and all sorts of electronics arrives for the car all at once. Simply launch the steeringlever and launch 7 screws. Perfect for cleansing and maintenance. All wiring very short and compact to mount. Right aligned servo-linkages to both brake and throttle levers.
Radio-gear and battery mounting
The 733 provides a neatly created side-bracket-assembly that provides mounting room for the receiver, the switch, the antenna and both servos. The receiver goes into the nylon package with embossed Serpent logo. On the other part of the tank, the battery ( Lipo or regular pack) is mounted to a carbon fiber bracket (shrink-foil/tape) , which again mounts on radioplate with nylon spacers.
This really compact design means you need to use very short cables and when installed precisely hardly any cables are visible from outside, but house well protected in the car. The steering-servo bracket provides another mounting position ( 2 holes) the transponder whenever is prefered as opposed to the lower mounting position in tank.
Spacers are offered to correctly mount the servos, including 3 kinds servo levers to suit all major brands.
