Serpent announces the update to the Cobra GT 1/8 platform in both electric and nitro powered editions. Both versions of the Serpent Cobra GT 3.0 come loaded with tons of new features including new front and rear aluminum suspension holders, new 6 degree aluminum c-hubs, new aluminum rear suspension uprights, new aluminum shocks and new 4.5mm carbon fiber shock towers. The Serpent Cobra GT 3.0 GP nitro also includes a new super light XLi two speed gearbox and new aluminum middle bearing blocks. Check out the pictures of the Cobra GP/EP 3.0 below.
These are designed to change the pivot pin angle, so the lower wishbones will be more straight, which geometry suits onroad racing better.
The new aluminum c-hubs are needed to make maximum use of the new pivot pin / wishbone angle. CNC machined from 7075 T6 aluminum, laser engraved and black anodized units.
To allow a better on road geometry we designed these new CNC machined aluminum uprights, black anodized and laser engraved.
The durable machined aluminum shock-risers front and rear allow for a more on-road aimed angle of the shock absorber creating more overall grip and more predictable cornering. The new 4.5mm lower carbon fiber shock towers also accommodate the new shock angles, with a choice of 5 holes for further fine-tuning.
Two Speed Gearbox
The XLi gearbox comes from the Viper 977-Evo kit and is well proven for performance and durability, as well as ease of setting. The lower inertia will make you accellerate faster.
To hold the new 2-speed gearbox/shaft as well as the existing double brake system newly designed super light aluminum bearing blocks are designed.
