The chassis plate has now been black anodised and features a machined recess to mount the supplied front brass plate, an option that helps remove snap oversteer and allows the car to corner faster and smoother. Also included with the kit are the new 0 and 1mm offset steering blocks that provide more options to fine-tune your car’s setup on different track layouts. An aluminium radio plate X bracket also comes as standard, that not only looks great but also helps increase rigidity of the car, while finally, to ensure the engine mounting points are kept aligned, reducing stress on the crankcase, the 720-08 is supplied with the single piece orange anodised engine mount.

Apart from the options, some of the cars standard parts have also been improved such as the fuel tank, which is now made from a more crash resistant material, while the mounted AFL tank lid comes with the new improved rubber seal. Other improvements include the use of a smaller diameter flywheel and the inclusion of Serpent’s new shock springs.

Rear end

The rear end of the Serpent 720 ’08 features strong 1-piece lower wishbones and fully adjustable uprights. As with all the wishbones on the car, 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 upright features robust pivotball mounting points on the bottom and two upper camber link mounting holes for fine-tuning rear roll centre.

Rear anti-roll bar

The rear anti-roll bar for the Serpent 720 ’08 is ball-raced for extra precision. Stiffness is quickly and easily adjustable by changing the linkage mounting points on the lower wishbones or alternatively by changing the position of the ball joint pivot point on the roll bar itself.

To further stiffen the rear end of the car, we have created a distinctive S-shaped carbon brace which spans the two rear bearing blocks.

Rear upper wishbone

The Serpent 720 ’08 continues to use an adjustable linkage as it has proved to be solid and lightweight, easily handling impacts, while offering improved and simple adjustment. The two inner mounting positions of each camber link offer an easy way to adjust camber rise.
