Serpent Cobra GT-e Electric 1/8 4WD

Serpent Cobra GT-e 1/8 4WDExpected to hit hobby shop shelves later this month, the new Serpent Cobra GT-e is the electric variant of Serpent’s popular 1/8th scale Cobra GT onroad platform. The Cobra GT-e features a high end 7076 T6 aluminum racing chassis, carbon fiber shock towers, low center-of-gravity longitudinal battery boxes, teflon coated big bore shocks and more! Like most of Serpent’s high end racers the Cobra GT-e requires electronics, wheels/tires and body to complete. More info and tons of pics after the break.

 

Chassis
Chassis in 3mm 7075 T6 aluminium , with machined pockets to create flex and or make lighter. Kick-up angle on front as need due to the race-rules. Countersunk holes. Slots to locate the front and rear suspension mounts precisely. Angled sides to increase stiffness. Laser engraved Cobra GT logo.

Bumper
Captured foam bumper set, with wide foam bumper and strong upper and lower bumper-plate.

Chassis stiffners
Composite stiffner front and rear, to give extra stiffness, but still allow some flex as needed.

Central radio / servo mount
Composite radiobox which offers space for the up-right steering-servo, the receiver and sufficient space for the speed-controller. The whole assembly including linkages can be taken off easily and fast in one go, when cleaning the car, or doing maintenance.

Battery-cases / sideguards
The main eyecatchers are the extremely low laydown longtudinal placed battery-packs at each side of the car, being part of the side-guards, securely fastened with a flip-lid, for easy and fast battery changes. The weight low in the car and in the right position, well balanced. The Lipo holders comply with ROAR legal packs / dimensions.

Servo arms and linkages
The servo arms have a splined insert to have the right fit per brand. The linkages runs very clean and tight and are easy to access to modify settings.

Suspension brackets
Beautifully machined 7065 T6 suspension brackets in anodized, laser angraved. Pecision fit for the nylon roll center inserts and pivot balls / pins.

Steering assembly
Composite steeringblocks combined with 10 dgr C-hubs for precise steering. Spring steel wheel-axles with large size bearings and larger inner with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset . Flanged and serrated wheel nuts to guarantee that you will not loose a wheel nut in a race.

Front suspension
Durable oversized lower suspension arms in strong composite nylon. On the lower side the special downstops screws are mounted. The lower shock-mounting pins are secured with a small grubscrew from the bottom.

Front anti-roll bar
The ballraced front anti-roll bar system, consist of a spring steel bend wire, which is guided through the diff-cases and run in ballraced steel adaptors. The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivotball, for very precise and low friction operation.

Shocktower and bodymounts front
4.5mm thick carbon shocktower with 5 upper positioning holes for the shocks and and 6 holes for roll-center positions. 1 centrally located adjustable bodymount , and 2 forward mounted adjustable bodymounts, all with flip-tops.

Angled steering system / servo saver
The bell cranks are angled 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

Ackerman 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..

Rear suspension arms
Durable oversized lower suspension arms in strong composite nylon. On the lower side the special downstops screws are mounted. The lower shock-mounting pins are secured with a small grubscrew from the bottom.

Rear uprights assembly
Composite uprights with 3 upper roll-center positions. Strog steel track-rods with L/R threading and strog balljoints to pre-set camber. Spring steel wheel-axles with large size bearings and larger inner with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset . Rubber dustcovers in the rear to protect the cvd system and kepe the lubrication inside. Flanged and serrated wheel nuts to guarantee that you will not loose a wheel nut in a race.

Rear anti-roll bar
The ballraced front anti-roll bar system, consist of a spring steel bend wire, which is guided through the diff-cases and runs in ballraced steel adaptors. The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivotball, for very precise and low friction operation.

Shocktower rear
4.5mm thick carbon shocktower, integrated into the rear section for extra stiffness, with 5 upper positioning holes for the shocks and 6 holes for roll-center positions.

Wingmount and bodymounts rear
Composite rear wing, with strong nylon adjustable rear bodymounts on wide body-support bridge located far enough to the rear, to support the bodies in best way. .

Captured pivot pins and balls and bolted hinge pins

All spring-steel hinge pins are either captured or bolted in place and made in spring-steel quality. This insures your chances to finish an hour long main event, while battling for the lead. This relieves stress on the hinge pin when adjusting the kick up, or anti squat. Your pin is free to rotate to any angle without binding.

Shockabsorbers big-bore 16mm
Hard Teflon coated threaded shockbodies shockbodies with 4mm shock-rods.. Black anodized aluminium screw on shock-tops with Serpent laser engraving. Pre-load adjusters with o-rings inside. Shocks use large diameter membrames and large diameter o-rings and bushings to create a supersmooth and leak-proof package. Large diameter pistons are held in place by a nut on the polished shock-rods tops. Open type spring retainer to let dirt out easy.

RCM shock springs
Short type colorcoded shock springs are supplied for the 1st standard set-up Springs are grinded flat top and bottom, and checked individually for tension and length.

Compact geardifferentials
Very compact gear differentials with very smooth metal sintered gears, and steel shaft. Perfect sealing case with special gasket and o-rings. Very light and durable outdrive cups in spring-steel. Hardened spring-steel diff-coupler 10T with connector running in 2 oversized bearings x and x

Front and rear cvd-sets
Both front and rear captured driveshafts are being used with CVD system. Durable yet light spring steel engraved driveshafts with hard steel pins.

Spring steel transmission parts
The front and rear thin but strong spring steel cardan shafts connect the differentials with the gearbox section.

Motor mount
Machined 7075 T6 aluminium motor-mount with one-screw fixation and easy slider system. Flex-free and very strong motormount. The space for the motor allows a maximum motor-length of 68mm, which covers most widely used motors.
