Serpent is releasing an additional version of the belt-driven Serpent Spyder 4wd 1/10 buggy , with a hardcoated lightened 7075 T6 aluminum chassis. The carbon chassis which is standard on the current Spyder SRX4 gives the car the extra flex, which works well on medium and lower grip surfaces, but with the hard coated alu chassis the car works better on medium to superhigh grip tracks. The durable 2.5mm 7075 T6 alu chassis is stiffer than the carbon version. The aluminum plate is machined to make it lighter and hardcoated for stiffness and durability. Countersunk holes for a smooth lower surface. Laser-engraved with Spyder SRX4 logo.
Strong composite lower suspension arms with mounting spots for the optional anti-roll bar. Aluminum suspension brackets with inserts to change set-up. Small but effective composite front bumper to protect the front end. The angled front built in kick up allows for smoother landings. The composite front diff case is a very strong affair to mount the diffs, front shock tower, central spline and chassis too.
The rear end shares many parts with the 2wd MM Spyder, which is nice if you also run 2wd. Also here a very sturdy structure with the diff-case as base to mount diffs, shock tower, chassis and motor mount to. Strong composite lower arms. Suspension brackets in aluminum also here with inserts to play with set-up. The beefy composite uprights offer 3 setup position in the top and inserts in the bottom.
The motor is mounted securely to the thick 3mm cnc machined 7075 T6 alu motor plate, which doubles as cooler. Machined slots allow movement of the motor to fine-tune the pinion/spur gap. The motor holder also holds the shafts of the side belt system, and allows mounting.
The body is made in the same Avenger style as the 2wd buggy and shares its looks and compact shape. Top quality clear polycarbonate is used. The body comes with a masking sheet.The strong clear polycarbonate wing is mounted to the nylon rear wing holder. The wing angle can be changed by using the included wing angle spacers: 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 angle are all included.
Standard in the car the “solid clicker” is used for permanent 4wd, which for high grip conditions is best to use. The optional clicker system requires few extra parts only and can be used well in medium and lower grip conditions, to allow the front wheels to spin more free and create more corner entry speed as needed.
The center of the car allows plenty of space to mount the most popular speedo and receivers, as well as the transponder. The car also allows enough space to enable nice routing of your cables. The shorty type servo is mounted on integrated composite stands. Various spacers and horns are included to suit the most popular servo brands.
The dual belt system is very durable and light. The Kevlar reinforced front belt is fully captured, so well protected against debris which increases life. The Kevlar reinforced side belt is open due to its location, and the closely fitted body will prevent debris from coming in contact with the belt. The belts run on precision machined pulleys. The front belt tension can be changed with eccentric inserts.
Serpent hard coated shock bodies and shock tops for super smooth operation and durability. 3.2mm shafts with new X-ring package and molded pistons. The shocks can be used either emulsion or membrane configuration. The shock springs have ground ends, checked and matched for perfect equal operation. Ride height can be easy set with the threaded collars which have o-rings inside to stay in position.
