Serpent Cobra E-Truggy

Serpent Cobra E-TruggyThe new Serpent Cobra E-Truggy is the electric powered version of the very popular Cobra nitro truggy. Serpent created the E-Buggy Cobra a few years back, with the motor front mounted together with the speedo, receiver and servo, allowing the batteries to be mounted in longitudinal fashion in the center-back of the car, and as low as possible, one side each, to create a perfectly balanced RC vehicle. 

Chassis
Very narrow 3mm 7075T6 aluminum chassis, with machining on the upper face to make it lighter in strategic locations and to control flex. Kick-up front for proper landings. Angled side to increase cornering clearance, and secure and easy mounting side guards with 5 screws. Countersunk holes, pockets to position the suspension brackets. Grey anodized with Cobra Logo engraved. Overall the Truggy is designed to keep the weight very central and near to the centerline as possible, to create a great overall balance.

Side guards / battery trays
Durable shaped composite side guards / battery trays that follow the line of the chassis, and mount with 5 screws each side. Front and sides high enough to keep the dirt out. The guards/trays create a lot of stability. The batteries are mounted in longitudinal fashion, keeping the weight very low in the car. The battery trays feature hinged covers, to keep the batteries well in place, but are easy to open for access.

Motor mount
The Serpent Cobra E-Truggy motor is placed in the most optimal position, keeping motor-forces and transmission parts / alignment in mind. Only one-screw is needed to secure the BL motor, in the nicely designed durable machined aluminum motor mount. Space for additional motor-cooling available as needed. The space for the motor allows mounting all popular buggy and (monster) truggy motors.

Composite chassis braces
Allows the chassis to flex which helps improve bump handling. Front and rear.

Front bumper
Nicely rounded front bumper, same as on the Cobra buggy, to protect the front anti-roll bar, suspension brackets, and flows inline with kick-up chassis front for safe landings.

Front suspension
Very long and durable composite lower wishbones, combined with upper spring-steel trackrods. 2 lower shock-mount positions. Downs tops can be used as needed. Pivot ball type anti-roll bar rods.

Front steering / servo saver / angled
Serpent Cobra E-Truggy features an innovative angled front steering assembly to reduce the angle of difference between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump steer and a truer steering Ackerman through the entire range of suspension. Adjustable spring loaded servo-saver system with interchangeable Ackermann plates. With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackerman you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. You simply will only need to adjust your end points on your radio. Very easy to access and set-up. The Inboard Bell crank keeps the lever and linkage inside the car. It will aid in the prevention of damage to the steering system. Zero scrub radiuses on steering knuckle, helps reduce the jacking effect created by your steering knuckle offset. It provides a more direct fell while keeping the cars chassis more level while turning.

Drive-shafts
Long and lightweight spring steel units with pressed in steel pins, laser-engraved. Same length front and rear.

Wheel-axles / wheel-nut
Serpent spring steel threaded wheel-axles with lightweight grey anodized aluminum wheel-nuts ( flanged and serrated) to keep the massive truggy wheels/tires on track.

Captured universal joints
The idea here was simple. Guarantees you will finish a race without loosing a pin or set screw. All parts, axles and drive train components have capture pins

Front shock tower
Light, strong and durable machined 5mm carbon fiber units with 5 positions for shock angle.

Shock-set front and rear
The Serpent Cobra E-Truggy comes equipped with 16mm big bore shocks, with hard anodized precision threaded shock-bodies. Shock boots in silicone rubber to keep the dirt out . Chromed shock-shafts for super smooth shock action . The larger o rings provide less overall pressure and a better seal without dragging on the shock shaft.

Suspension brackets
The hinge-pins / hinge pin balls are captured in precision machined, special shaped 7075 T6 aluminum, grey anodized with indicated type. They capture the nylon roll-center inserts.

Anti-roll bar / anti-roll bar linkage with pivot ball
The anti-roll bars front and rear are made of high quality special spring steel, and are captured on the diff-cased in ballbearing for perfect guidance and control.

Receiver box / servo mount / speedo mount
Composite one piece radio box to securely mount servo’ s, speedo and receiver. For optimum balance the light receiver fits the top-case easy, with a small opening to allow cable to protrude. The speedo seats very low on a plate just above the chassis, so short cables can be used to the motor. The servo is mounted in a vertical fashion.

Central diff
Optimized centralgear-diff with 50T super-hard spur-gear . Very small, compact design to reduce rotating mass to the max.

Transmission shafts
Durable but light and thin Serpent spring steel, laser engraved shafts.

Front and rear diff
Optimized gear-diffwith 50T super hard spur-gears . Very small, compact design to reduce rotating mass to the max. Same version front and rear. Diff coupler in spring steel seated in large bearings for durability.

Rear shock tower
Light, strong and durable machined 5mm carbon fibre unit with 5 positions for shock angle.

Rear uprights
Durable composite rear uprights with 3 camber positions

Mudguards
In moist or wet dirt situations these mud guards reduce and dirt sticking to the rear drive shafts and shocks. Follow line of wishbone perfectly.

Rubber boots for shafts
Helps to keep the dirt out and the lubrication in. Reduces wear.

Suspension brackets rear
Nicely machined 7075 T6 aluminum with eccentric inserts to change set-up.
