The 747-e 200mm produced by Serpent in 1/10 scale Touring Car series AWD drivetrain assembly kit, is classified in R/C Models - On-Road - Touring Cars - Electric Powered
Serpent 747-e 1/10 scale 4wd 200mm electric powered racing car. Compared to
a regular 1/10 scale touringcar, the handling is very different, much easier.
As you will race with a wider car of 200mm and use foam tyres on wider rims.
The 1/10 200mm cars are also overall stronger ( and a bit heavier) and can take
the extra power you have with ease, without wearing out fast. Even when crashing
the 200mm cars are more durable and can absorb more power.

Symmetrical chassisplate for even flex and torsion in 3mm carbon fibre, lowered
where the motor mounts as low as possible in the car.
The 2mm carbon fibre topdeck connect the front and rear suspension.
The battery holders are in carbon fibre and have sleeves to enable use of battery
mounting taope easily.
very low mounted servo, a a strong carbon/alu holder which is centrally mounted
for even flex
Motor / midshaft / anti-roll bar holder
the motor is mounted on a low strong aluminium holder, which doubles as mid-shaft
holder and rear anti-roll bar holder as well.
The mid-shaft mounts in 2 seperate holders with the ballbearing inside to enanble
a fast and easy change of gears.
Hard Teflon coated threaded shockbodies in high quality aluminium. Supersmooth
o-ring / bushing package, to guide and seal the spring-steel piston rods. Precision
moulded pistons included in 3 types. Threaded pre-load shocknuts in alu with
o-ring inside. Light but strong nylon spring-cups. Tight fitting ball-joints
in top and bottom.
Newly designed lower front bumper with aerodynamic effects and better protection.
Some parts of the lower bumper can be cut open to create more steering. The
upper bumper / bodymount holder connect to the lower one to create a strong
structure to absorb the crashes. The foam elements ( normal or large) can still
be placed but are optional.
3.0mm carbon fibre shocktowers with 3 positions for upper shockmounting. In
the centre you can mount the 3rd bodypost as needed.
A compact and superlight structure of topquality aluminium parts consist of
top-brackets, L and R equal bearing brackets, lower suspension bracket front,
L and R equal FR-RR standing suspension holders and rear, anti-roll bar holder
and Lightened machined alu brackets, equal left and right, toothed section allow
setting belt tension with excenters which seat the bearings. Machined alu topbrackets
L and R version to hold the upper arms. Suspension bracket front . All crafty
machined and grey anodised parts. The open style design allows for very fast
parts exchange as needed, like belt, diff or anti-roll bar.
Strong long double A-arm suspension with aluminium pivotballs, which pivot in
light nylon cups. Medium hard nylon used for the arms to have some flex to increase
grip, and make them most durable. The arms pivot on the inside on springsteel
pins. The pivot-inserts are used to change rollcenter. Small grubscrews mount
in the upper bracket to control downstop. Easy to access and change ride height,
front width, toe-in, caster and camber.
Steeringblocks / wheelaxles / cvd
Very strong nylon steeringblocks with 2 ackermann positions . The spring-steel
wheelaxles are seated in high speed bearings. The light and durable spring-steel
cvds bring all the power to the front wheels. Wheels are mounted to orange
anodised high grade aluminium hex-adaptors using serrated wheelnuts.
Anti-roll bar front
The ballraced wire type anti-rollbar in the front is really easy to access and
change for other type or thickness as needed. The anit-roll bar is linked to
the lower a-arms with a unique pivotball/cup system, which provides direct and
smooth operation and is easy to set.
Servo-saver / steering
The centraly mounted steel servo-saver post fits the spring-loaded ballraced
servo-saver system and steering. The inserts allow 2 ackermann settings. Due
to the open design the linkages with L/R threading can be reached easily. The
whole system allows for very precise steering and minimum bumpsteer.
Very open rear end design with a composition of 8 machined alu brackets, allowing
for controlled flex and easy maintenance. The differential brackets, L and R
equal, are toothed and seat the excentric bearing holder, which allow for setting
belttension. Its very quick and easy to mount a differential and or replace
The machined aluminium lower suspension brackets have roll-center inserts with
3 positions to choose from. The rear bracket is the V1 version, which is narrow
than used on the 733, to achieve the new geometry together with the near lower
arms and uprights.
Rear carbon shocktower and camber bracket
The 3.0mm carbon shocktower has 3 upper mounting position for the shocks and
it mounts the body-poles. The camber bracket offers 8 positions to choose from,
4 inner and 4 out holes.
The new lower rear arms together with the new uprights create the new geometry
in the rear, to create a wider set-up sweet-spot with more grip and more steering.
The upper camber rods connect to the carbon camber bracket with 8 mounting positions
for roll-center and the camber rod is easy to access and has L/R threading for
fast changes. The aluminium pivotball system allows for fast changes in width
and toe-in. On the lower inside the wishbone pivots on springsteel pins, which
seat with roll-center inserts in the anodised alu suspension brackets.
Lower rear wishbones
the composite lower wishbones feature a mounting position for the anti-roll
bar linkage bracket in carbon, which moves the link position more outside and
higher. Its also offers a mounting position for an optional carbon shock-mount
bracket, to move the lower shockmount position further out, but for the default
set-up its not needed. By placing the lower shock further out, you will get
even more steering .
Uprights / wheel-axles
Durable medium type nylon uprights, which seat the wheel-axles bearings. The
upright offers the mounting position for the steel camber-rod with L/R threading.
The durable spring steel wheelaxles bring to power from the gear-diff to the
wheels. Wheels are fitted on high grade anodised alu wheelhex adaptors and secured
with serrated flanged wheelnuts.
Anti-roll bar rear
The ballraced wire type anti-rollbar in the rear is really easy to access from
the top and change for other type or thickness as needed. The anti-roll bar
is linked to the lower a-arms with a steel rod. The lower arms offers 2 mounting
positions to choose from.
Compact, durable and light gear differential. Pecision moulded steel gears,
2 small and 2 large ones. Steel internal shaft. The very durable and light spring
steel lightened diff-adaptors connect to the driveshafts. The geardiff is same
front and rear.
Spring steel, light and very durable CVDs used in the front. Precision mounted
hard steel pins
Spring steel, light and very durable dogbones used in the rear. Precision mounted
hard steel pins
Precison moulded super-true pullies, which feature holed sidewalls to let debris
move out easier. Light and durable.
Kevlar reinforced belts with fine pitch. Longlasting and smooth.
2 Ball raced belt-tensioners, machined from aluminium mount between the chassis
