This new development for Cobra buggy is realized after another full year of racing across the globe, listening to feedback from many (team)-drivers and dedicated testing on many different surfaces. The feedback from the drivers on the Cobra Buggy in general is very good, the durability is rated as best in the market, the shocks are toprated, and the diffs and drivetrain with new gears and larger bearings can now withstand any rigors and will last and last !
According to same drivers a more responsive rear end, combined with a bit more steering would bring the Cobra on the highest performance level.
Well ….. the changes as below accomplish just that, and for sure we will continue the superb quality on the kit overall and the new Avenger cab-forward body tops it off perfectly !
Serpent Cobra 811 Buggy 2.0 main new features
new wider rear end with new geometry for more rear traction and an easier handling car with wider sweetspot
rear shockabsorbers moved to the back of the shocktower / arms

includes Serpent Avenger cab forward body and mask and also a set of 4 toplevel Serpent buggy wheels to try.
For current Cobra drivers, Serpent prepared 2 different editions of the uupgrade set rear end.
1. Full-set: includes all parts to reach same rear end as Cobra 2.0
2. Basic set: moves shocks to the back and creates new geometry as well, but use more of the existing Cobra 1.0 or TE parts. This is the cheaper alternative.

The sets also fit the 811- Be for those that wanna try.
