Sourcing from RedRC.net : Serpent have announced that they will release 3 new electric powered cars at this week Nuremberg toy fair, which Red RC will be covering live from the Show floor. To be shown at the fair is the new S500 4wd buggy, the S120 1/12th scale pan car and finally the S240 1/24th scale pan car. The Serpent booth will contain all the companyâ€™s usual products as well including the 08 versions of the 720 and 960 as well as the S400 and F180.
The first product to be produced following the collaboration of Serpent and Durango designer Gerd Strenge. While keeping the spirit of the original project, the S500 is all new and has been designed from the ground up by our team of designers. The main features of the new car are its rear mounted batteries, central shaft drive, motor mounted front of center, ultra narrow chassis and easy access front and rear differentials. This car has already proven itself in its prototype phase, with the only 2 cars at last years World Championship in Japan making it into the main final.
Serpentâ€™s first entry into the resurgent 1/12th scale 2wd pan car class, the S120 sports a one piece CNC machined aluminium rear pod, central main-shock combined with S120 lateral monoshock. Other innovations include a centrally mounted tweak adjuster as well as adjustable front suspension with independent upper a-arms and pivot ball mounted steering blocks. High quality carbon fibre and glass fibre components are used throughout as well as machined aluminium parts.
Serpentâ€™s new S240 is a 1/24th scale electric powered 2wd pan car chassis. Featuring a rear ball differential and centrally mounted shock absorber, the car is supplied with motor, clear LMP bodyshell and tires. High quality carbon fibre and orange anodised CNC machined aluminium used throughout.
